Twitter Dunks on James Comey After His Bizarre Deep Thoughts in the Forest Tweet

We swear we did not steal this from the satirical website The Onion.

So special counsel Robert Mueller on Friday issued his final report after a two-year-long probe into allegations that President Trump and members of his campaign colluded with Russians in an attempt to alter the outcome of the 2016 presidential election (spoiler alert: They didn’t find diddly).

In the hubbub that followed, James Comey — the former FBI director who was responsible for clearing Hillary Clinton in her massive email scandal and who then orchestrated a leak of his memos to The New York Times after he was fired by Trump — posted a cryptic tweet. The post showed Comey among a stand of tall trees, looking up in wonder. The accompanying text said: “So many questions.”

The post immediately made us think of the old adage,” Can’t see the forest for the trees.” The expression, says, is “used of someone who is too involved in the details of a problem to look at the situation as a whole.”

So Comey was literally standing in the trees, and he figuratively cannot see the forest ‘cuz of all the @#$%& trees! You can’t make this stuff up, people.

The internet, as is sometimes the case, was brutal.

But the award for best reply goes to Scooter Downey.
