Don’t look now, but it seems like Comey’s Revenge has officially begun and it’s not looking good for Trump.

A memo from the recently fired FBI director made its way to the New York Times Tuesday and it was jam-packed with damaging claims about the president.

Among the most outrageous were the allegations that Trump asked James Comey to shut down the federal investigation into Trump’s former national security advisor Michael T. Flynn and equally as worrying that he floated an idea to lock up reporters for publishing classified information.

As the clamor for a full investigation grew, House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz said his committee is willing to issue a subpoena to get hold of the memo.

Amidst all the craziness, a person was spotted jumping the White House fence. The only question was whether they were trying to infiltrate the Oval Office or flee the raging dumpster fire.

How exactly the latest, potentially wildly damaging revelation will play out remains to be seen but in the meantime, Twitter had a schadenfreude-fest.

Here’s how it played out.

‘Obstruction of Justice’ shot to the top trending list within hours.

Impeachment was a popular subject.

Of course Trump’s old tweets came back to bite him

And the GIFs were out in full force.

One person was conspicuous by his absence.

The ball, as ever, is in Trump’s court.
