Celebrities are reacting to President Donald Trump firing FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday. The White House said in a statement that Comey was informed “he has been terminated and removed from office.” Of course, many argue Comey threw the presidential election into a tailspin on October 28 when he told Congress that the FBI would again investigate Hillary Clinton after having supposedly discovered more classified emails on Anthony Weiner’s computer. See Hollywood stars’ reaction to the news of Comey being fired.

Alyssa Milano posted on Twitter the definition of “autocracy” and that it means “a system of government by one person with absolute power.” She followed that up with a second message that read, “We are to trust that whomever you hire to replace Comey will lead a fair nonpartisan investigation into your collusion with Russia, @POTUS?” Along with an article about Comey being fired, Rosie O’Donnell wrote, “ohhhhh donald u dopey dupe – disgrace #fireTRUMP.”

Samantha Ronson expressed, “Nixon + hindsight – a soul = Trump.” Also invoking Richard Nixon was Patton Oswalt, who tweeted alongside a story about Comey, “(Nixon’s ghost, sipping bourbon): Glorious.” “Orange Shady is gonna make sure we never get to the bottom of this madness! ‘Nixon The Sequel’. Remember the firing of Archibald Cox?! Hmmmm,” added Arsenio Hall.

Don Cheadle offered, “Timing so suspect … #Russia #russiagate #resist #18days.” And Sarah Silverman exclaimed, “PLEASE WAKE UP THIS IS CRAY YALL.” “Trump fires Comey. I just hope Kushner can head the FBI while still fixing the middle east,” cracked Albert Brooks. Sarah Hyland added, “Jesus. It’s terrifying how funny this is.”

Debra Messing tweeted,” #COMEY This is absolutely OUTRAGEOUS!!! The Head of an IMPARTIAL agcy was FIRED bc he was uncovering corruption in the WH!.” Jim Carrey protested, “TRUMP FIRES COMEY! ABSOLUTE OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE! ABSOLUTE EVIL!” “Impeach him,” said John Legend.

Josh Groban joked, “Welp Comey is gone good thing the entire rest of the FBI isn’t suspicious of Trump nope looks like the whole thing has blown over now.” “I’m just…… woah… what the heck?” tweeted Christina Applegate. Gossip Cop will continue to update as more celebrities share their reactions to Comey being fired as the FBI Director.
