Kellyanne Shares An Early 'Throwback Thursday' to Point Out Dem Hypocrisy Over Comey

White House Counsel Kellyanne Conway could not wait for Thursday to share this epic throwback on Twitter.

Per this piece from The Hill back in January, many Democrats viewed Comey as "more of a partisan operative than a straight shooter" and were "incensed" he was allowed to keep his job. Now, a few months later, Democratic leaders are fuming that Trump fired him. 

This flip flop can be explained by a pair of investigations. Comey was a villain for reopening Hillary Clinton's email investigation 11 days before the November presidential election, but he's a hero for overseeing the probe into Trump's supposed ties to Russia. 

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer smelled a rat in regards to Comey's firing, suggesting Trump got concerned that Comey's Russia investigation was getting a little "too close to home." The Democrat now wants a special prosecutor to launch a whole new investigation. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell shot down that request.
