Be careful what you joke about, because it might just come true!
After months of joking that Donald Trump was a dictator in reality star clothing, the President went and pulled an actual dictator move by firing the FBI director who was investigating his ties to Russia.
Stephen Colbert, Trevor Noah, and James Corden had a lot to say about Trump going all Celebrity Apprentice on James Comey and firing him per the “recommendation” of Attorney General Jeff Sessions — and Jimmy Kimmel was so pissed, he made T-shirts.
The late night hosts skewered POTUS for his tyrannical, ratings-based decision in removing Comey, which he said was due to the former director royally screwing up the investigation into Hillary Clinton‘s emails. (You know, the investigation that coined Trump’s campaign war cry “lock her up!” and essentially handed him the election.)
Trump’s opponents weren’t that surprised he plucked off the man who was in charge of his investigation — Noah even noted that blaming it on protecting Hillary was “the most gangsta excuse!” — but one thing was made clear: this crazy train is going off the rails.
Ch-ch-check out the clips (below) to see what the late night crusaders had to say!
