No matter which side of the political aisle you prefer, there is one thing a whole lot of people on social media are agreeing on — FBI director James Comey’s job is on thin ice.
And that’s putting it nicely.
Comey’s letter to Congress on Sunday saying that a review of additional Hillary Clinton emails does not change the FBI’s previous conclusion that she should not face criminal charges for her use of a private email server as Secretary of State was received with sigh of relief by some and a fit of anger by others.
But among the rage, distrust and disillusionment, there was also a spattering of humor.
Take a look for yourself:

How convenient that Comey announces Hillary's exoneration from an erroneous investigation after all the Sunday news shows have aired.
