James Comey Gets FIRED by Donald Trump, Stars Get Fired Up on Twitter

by at .

James Comey has been fired as FBI Director by President Donald Trump.

The shocking development took place as Comey was leading an investigation into the administration's dealings with Russia, therefore raising a few very obvious red flags.

Did Trump cut Comey loose because he fears what the FBI will discover in this investigation?

There seems to be almost no other way to interpret this morally and legally questionable course of action.

In response to the firing, celebrities from across Hollywood jumped on social media and reacted in stunned horror...

Firing the FBI Director seems like the kind of thing a President does when he knows he's going to jail. (See: Nixon, Richard).
