On Sunday night, former FBI Director James Comey gave his first interview since being fired by Donald Trump last year. In response, the president decided to rip into Comey during his most recent rant on Twitter.

Trump on Comey

When Donald Trump fired James Comey as head of the FBI back in May 2017, the news quickly dominated the headlines.

At the time, Comey was leading the investigation into Russian election meddling and whether or not the Trump campaign had been in cahoots with the Kremlin. Comey's firing led to Robert Mueller being added as the investigation's special counsel, which has only resulted in an even bigger headache for the president and his administration. Comey addressed these issues during an interview an interview on ABC's "20/20" on Sunday night, going as far as labeling Trump "morally unfit to be president."

After James Comey's interview on "20/20," the former FBI director faced criticism from both the political left and right.

Many liberals blame Comey for Hillary Clinton's lose during the 2016 election due to him reopening the email investigation just two weeks before Election Day. Conservatives, on the other hand, lashed out over his interaction with Trump, with the president tweeting out on April 16. "Comey drafted the Crooked Hillary exoneration long before he talked to her (lied in Congress to Senator G), then based his decisions on her poll numbers," Trump tweeted.

"Disgruntled, he, McCabe, and the others, committed many crimes!" the president added.

Twitter reacts

Following Donald Trump's tweet about James Comey, critics of the president took time to chime in. "It's a joy every morning to know how miserable and unhappy you are with your life," one tweet read.

"A person who sees moral equivalence in Charlottesville, who talks about and treats women like they're pieces of meat, who lies constantly about matters big and small and insists the American people believe it, that person's not fit to be president of the United States," a Twitter user wrote.

"Doesn’t change the fact that your campaign team conspired with Wikileaks, Cambridge Analytica, and Russia to rig (your word) out election," another tweet added.

"The orange sh*tgibbon talking about people committing crimes is comical since he clearly has unclean hands.

Fess up about your own crimes loser," a social media user wrote. "No Donald, YOU committed the crimes. And you will pay. Nobody gets away with treason against The United States of America," a follow-up tweet read.
