President Donald Trump allegedly sought to have former FBI James Comey look into whether the Russians really did have a tape of him in a hotel room with prostitutes. The president indicated it was to ease the mind of first lady Melania Trump. Trump said that the incident never happened and the story was false, so it's unclear why he asked Comey to investigate.
The revelations prompted Twitter to unleash it's own commentary around the shock of the revelations.
"Trump’s obsession with the dossier and the alleged pee tape was severe, apparently," MSNBC's Joy Reid noted, citing the excerpts of the book.

Others, however, took the humerous route with their own puns.
"Melania told Donald Trump “If the pee tape is real...urine a lot of trouble!" tweeted Tony Posnanski. "I'll be here all night."
