‘Someone scared?’ The internet heaps mockery on Trump’s unhinged Comey ‘slime ball’ rant

President Donald Trump ranted against former FBI director James Comey as newspapers and cable news spent the morning reporting excerpts from his new book.

Trump tweeted that Comey was a "LEAKER & LIAR" and "untruthful slimeball" who should be prosecuted, and said it was his "great honor" to fire him -- which set in motion events that led to the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller.

Other Twitter users piled on to mock the president and call out his hypocrisy.
