Celebrities Are Live-Tweeting The Comey Hearing Just Like The Rest Of Us
Chances are you're posted up in front of your smart phone, tablet, laptop, or flat screen today for the Super Bowl of court testimonies. James Comey is testifying before a Senate committee about his one-on-one conversations with President Trump. Wednesday afternoon, Comey's prepared remarks were released, giving the public a taste of what we were in for. And today, the former FBI director is spilling the tea, the whole tea, and nothing but the tea, and celebrities can't get enough of it.
Comedians, actors, and singers alike are congregating around social media to share their thoughts on the jaw-dropping testimony from Comey. Everyone from actors Chris Evans and Minnie Driver to reality star Spencer Pratt is using their Twitter fingers to vent their shock, awe, and utter confusion when it comes to Comey's claims about his relationship with Trump. And many are also waiting with bated breath to see how Trump will respond.
When entertainers find entertainment in politics, it's hard not to take notice. This just goes to show that not even the glamorous lights of Hollywood could distract celebrities from looking for the cold, hard facts.
Check out some of the most humorous, relatable, and pop culture reference-filled tweets so far.
