The 37 Best (and Funniest) Tweets About FBI Director James Comey and His "October Surprise"

You may have noticed that on Friday, FBI Director James Comey sent the world’s vaguest letter to Congress notifying them that there were new developments in the Hillary Clinton email investigation, which the rest of us thought had ended back in July. You may have also noticed that the announcement came 11 days before the election, timing which can charitably be described as “suspicious.” And if you kept up with the developments, you may have further noticed that the emails in question came from a separate investigation into Anthony Wiener, that Comey didn’t even know what was in said emails, and that there’s no indication he’ll say another word before the election. Democrats buried him in an avalanche of wrath (the DOJ is particularly pissed), Trump crowed about Hillary’s corruption, and cable news focused less on the content of the letter, and the emails, and more on the implications for the horse race…because, let’s face it, that’s all they know.

The only silver lining to this whole debacle came from Twitter, where some very smart people sounded off on what the hell was actually happening. In the gallery above, you can browse the best and funniest of the reactions, which run the emotional gamut from angry to snarky to hilarious and back to angry. Additionally, there are a couple that clown on Joe Walsh, which is always fun. But most of it, of course, is directed at the man who may have just changed the election irrevocably. Enjoy?
