Celebrities React: FBI Investigating New Hillary Clinton Emails
The FBI revealed Friday it was reviewing new emails related to Hillary Clinton “that appear to be pertinent” to its previous investigation of her private email server. Celebrities are now reacting to the news. See stars’ reactions below.
The FBI director James Comey released a statement Friday explaining that a new batch of emails have been discovered, and the organization needed “to review these emails to determine whether they contain classified information.” It was later revealed that the new emails were uncovered while the FBI was investigating electronic devices belonging to Huma Abedin, one of Clinton’s top aides, and her husband, Anthony Weiner.
Shortly after the story broke, Andy Cohen tweeted, “Because we needed MORE DRAMA from the election.” Arsenio Hall exclaimed, “Doh! Geeez, beating Trump should not be this hard! Hillary could mess up a wet dream! The Plaxico Burress of politics. Shoot YOURSELF in the…” Meanwhile, Cher questioned the validity of the emails, writing, “TRUMP REACHED OUT 2 HERO & BIZ PARTNER PUTIN,2 SEND EMAILS. NO PROOF THEY’RE ALL REAL. TIM KAINE(JESUIT)SAYS SOME EMAILS ABSOLUTELY NOT HIS.”
Michelle Rodriguez said, “I wish they ran a multi layered investigation on every Secretary of State since emails were invented this is stupid.” She later added, “Truth is government confidential information protocol is slow in keeping up with malware & the Tech Age Pace why should Hilary take the fall.” And when Patton Oswalt was asked by a follower, “Are we panicking about the FBI right now? Are we ok?” the comedian answered, “1. No 2. Yes” He subsequently tweeted, “Dear James Comey: Anthony Weiner just sent me a d*ck pic with the nuclear codes written on his c*ck-shaft.” Similarly, Albert Brooks wrote, “If Anthony Weiner’s penis brings down the entire US government I’m going to be so upset.”
In response to vice presidential nominee Mike Pence calling on the FBI to “immediately release all emails,” Elizabeth Banks shot back, “TAX RETURNS.” And when a follower suggested Comey was reinvestigating Clinton to sway the election, Kristen Bell wrote, “Shame on him.” Meanwhile, Rosie O’Donnell was unfazed by the new development, expressing, “And trump is still satan #ImWithHer.”
