James Comey Hid In Curtains To Avoid Donald Trump And Twitter Found It Hilarious


Following President Donald Trump's decision to fire former FBI Director James Comey over his handling of the Clinton email investigation, we've been learning a lot about the working relationship the two had. First, it emerged that Comey had kept records of his meetings with Trump, including one in which Trump allegedly told Comey to drop the investigation into Michael Flynn

And last night, it emerged that Comey once dressed in a suit that was the same color as the White House curtains in an attempt to avoid being noticed by the president. Benjamin Wittes, a close friend of Comey, told The New York Times about the ceremony. According to The Times:

"The ceremony occurred in the Blue Room of the White House, where many senior law enforcement officials — including the Secret Service director — had gathered. Mr. Comey — who is 6 feet 8 inches tall and was wearing a dark blue suit that day – told Mr. Wittes that he tried to blend in with the blue curtains in the back of the room, in the hopes that Mr. Trump would not spot him and call him out."
