On Sunday evening, Pres. Donald Trump welcomed FBI Director James Comey and a group of law enforcement personnel and first responders to a White House ceremony and appeared to not only blow Comey a kiss across the room, but also nuzzled his cheek in what looked like a kiss.
“Oh, here’s Jim,” said Trump in video from the White House before he made a moue-like shape with his lips that some viewers say looked an awful lot like the new president was blowing Comey a kiss.

“He’s become more famous than me,” Trump said as Comey crossed the room to his side, where the director received a hug and what appeared to be a peck on the cheek.
Some blame Comey’s decision to feint at re-opening the investigation into Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server during her term as Secretary of State for her loss in Nov. 2016.
Trump actually blows a kiss to Comey!!! You can hear it! I guess that is a great big thank you to Comey for not disclosing Russian issues. https://t.co/GNKKeq03pi
