"Donald Trump, who maybe you haven't heard is president now, a few hours ago fired James Comey, the director of the FBI — which is kind of like O.J. firing Judge Ito halfway through the trial."
"He fired the director of the FBI while the director was investigating his people for possible collusion with Russia. This is unbelievable. This is the kind of thing dictators do. This is the kind of thing reality TV hosts do, they fire someone every week."
"Maybe that's what happened, he thinks he's still on 'The Celebrity Apprentice.' It was between James Comey and Meatloaf, and, well, the Loaf won again."
"One reason they gave for firing him is because he mishandled the Hillary Clinton email situation, which is hilarious because that would mean Trump fired James Comey for making him president."
"We've seen a lot of unusual stuff, but this is outrageous. When something outrageous happens, I don't just sit on my hands, I do something about it. That's why I will be selling these 'Comey Is My Homey' t-shirts. Send me $29.99, and I will use some of that money to send a very nasty letter to the Oval Office."

"Huge story that broke just minutes ago: FBI Director James Comey has just been fired by Donald Trump. That shows no gratitude at all. Did Trump forget about the Hillary emails that Comey talked about? 'Thanks for the presidency, Jimmy. Now don't let the door hit ya where the Electoral College split ya.'"
"Yesterday, we learned that during their first meeting after the election, Obama warned Trump about hiring Michael Flynn. And it was just as effective as when Obama warned America about hiring Trump."
"Why didn't Trump heed this warning? Sources say Trump thought Obama was joking. You know, that old joke: 'Why did the chicken cross the road?' 'He's working for the Russians. And it's actually Michael Flynn in a chicken costume."
