James Comey’s hearing was strictly he-said, she-said.
The embattled former FBI Director’s lack of credibility was rampant between both parties, so it was surprising to see how Democrats reacted.
But then came the liberally biased Hollywood elite who collectively unraveled upon hearing Comey’s testimony.
During the Senate hearing, Comey memorialized every meeting with President Trump, which made some question its legitimacy.
But celebrities ignited on Twitter in response to the hearing where Comey consistently slandered the president.
John Cusack is a Bernie Sanders supporter so this is no surprise.
Comey behaving how a president is supposed to behave- trump a disgrace- repubs hanging all there hopes on the words I hope – context setting

The liberal queen of berating Trump, Samantha Bee, who hosts Full Frontal said:
This is basically a domestic abuse case.https://t.co/33P8mFvnfy

Bee definitely needs a jump-to-conclusions mat, because what she’s concluding here is that the president inflicted some sort of psychological abuse on a then-FBI Director.
Which is completely absurd.
And, of course, Rosie O’Donnell had something to say, like she always does.

You can point to insurance companies pulling out of the Obamacare market and also direct everyone’s attention to the booming stock markets to prove her wrong here.

But these celebrities ignored other things that Comey’s testimony revealed, like how he called a New York Times piece “fake news”.

But President Trump fought back and denied much of what Comey said about him in particular.
I believe the James Comey leaks will be far more prevalent than anyone ever thought possible. Totally illegal? Very ‘cowardly!’

Trump also said he would be willing to testify under oath and even Attorney General Jeff Sessions plans to do the same and refute much of what Comey said this week. So things are about to get really interesting.
