Donald Trump Just Made a Questionable Claim About the Relationship Between James Comey and Robert Mueller, and Twitter Is Mocking Him Hard

In his second interview with the Daily Caller in as many days, President Donald Trump on Wednesday boasted that he possessed intimate pictures of former FBI Director James Comey and Special Counsel Robert Mueller, whom the president often claims are "best friends."


Trump was asked if he had interviewed Mueller as a potential FBI director, a position Mueller had previously held under Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

"I liked him," Trump recalled of Mueller, "but I didn’t give him the job."

When pressed on why not, Trump said he had a "business dispute" with Mueller and that "he’s Comey’s best friend."

Trump then made a stunning claim - that he has pictures of Comey and Mueller "hugging and kissing."

I could give you 100 pictures of him and Comey hugging and kissing each other. You know, he’s Comey’s best friend.

This occurred moments after Trump had reiterated his belief that Mueller's investigation into Trump-Russia collusion and obstruction of justice is "illegal."

"I view it as an illegal investigation," Trump groaned. "It should’ve never been started. It should’ve never been allowed to start." The president added that he is "not the target of this investigation, just in case you don’t realize."

I consider it to be an illegal investigation. It should’ve never been allowed to have happened.

The president also referred to Mueller and his team of prosecutors as "17 angry Democrats," however the typical line of attack is "13 angry Democrats" (Mueller is a life-long Republican).

No one believes Trump has pictures of Comey and Mueller kissing, but here is one of Trump kissing Comey.

Social media remembers a video of Trump and his now TV lawyer Rudy Giuliani embracing - while Giuliani is dressed in drag.

Regardless, Twitter immediately fired back at Trump. Put up or shut up, Mr. President.

Same.

How... why? We have questions.

Ouch.

Others alluded to other ridiculous claims Trump has made.

Like when he said Muslims were cheering in the streets after 9-11.

And the newly released book by Bob Woodward in which administration officials trash the president and his unfitness for office.

And pictures of Trump hugging the Clintons.

And kissing Vice President Mike Pence.

Seriously, this happened, and it's only Wednesday.

"Introduce a little anarchy. Upset the established order, and everything becomes chaos. I'm an agent of chaos..."

Heath Ledger's Joker says this in 2008's The Dark Knight but it could also apply to the presidency of Donald Trump. From defying subpoenas, introducing sweeping policy changes to his own staff through tweets, fostering a revolving-door administration, abruptly deserting allies, and, of course, the ceaseless bullying.

The President and the Clown Prince of Crime have both been agents of some degree of chaos.

So it may not come as a surprise that the Joker joins the campaign of a Trump-like character in the latest issue of Dark Knight Returns: The Golden Child.
