The GOP’s response to Comey’s prepared remarks got laughed right off of Twitter

This response probably won't age well.

Today, James Comey comes to Capitol Hill for the first time since being unceremoniously dumped by President Donald Trump, and people are expecting fireworks.

Comey already delivered some in advance, with the Senate releasing a copy of his prepared remarks yesterday afternoon.

It was instantly a partisan Rorschach test. Whereas the left on Twitter saw the words of the former FBI director as indisputable evidence of obstruction, the right… well…


The left didn’t appreciate such a snarky GIF defense of the president, when they clearly saw very blatant misdeeds


People tried to remind Republicans that, lawfully or unlawfully, this was a big story for our democracy.






But the best responses were a joke on the president creating a war room to handle the Russia allegations.


Even Maggie Haberman got in on it.
