Former FBI director, James Comey, took to Twitter on Saturday to vent his frustration over President Donald Trump’s tweets while asking Trump supporters “if the president’s tweets reflect values they want”.

It is not clear which tweet(s) Comey was specifically referring to, but it is clear he apparently reads the president’s tweets.

James Comey expressed his irritation on Twitter by writing, “I often hear Trump supporters say they don’t pay attention to his tweets. But you must. And ask yourselves whether they reflect the values you want in a president and in America.”

“What he tweets matters. Is that who you are? Is that who you want your kids to be? Don’t look away,” Comey added.

Earlier in the month, Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee pertaining to his findings of the FISA report. The DOJ watchdog vehemently shot down James Comey’s claim that report pertaining to FISA abuses “vindicates” the former FBI director. (Continued Below)

“I think the activities don’t vindicate anybody who touched this,” Inspector General Michael Horowitz told Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC).

“So when Comey speaks about FISA, you shouldn’t listen,” Graham urged. “You should listen to Mr. Horowitz. He’s not vindicated. And to be concerned about the FISA warrant process is not nonsense.”

Twitterverse on Saturday was quick to respond to Comey’s complaints about the president tweets, to which it instantly backfired at the former FBI director. (Continued Below)

Comey was not the only one to complain about the president’s tweets on Saturday, however. CNN’s Victor Blackwell moaned about “who” the president was tweeting about and claimed, “Some of these [posts] aren’t even people. He tweeted bots and fan accounts of the conspiracy group QAnon,” adding that the network was not going to show the tweets on air to aid in the “spread of that junk.”

CNN’s Brian Stelter claimed, “It shows that the president’s sources of information are sometimes very unreliable sources.”
