SO, I MEAN, WE’LL KEEP TALKING ABOUT IT…

June 21st, 2017

This is one of what Trevor Noah calls his Between The Scenes segments where he talks to the audience during the commercial breaks.

Comey had this to say to his colleagues at the FBI: To all: I have long believed that a President can fire an FBI Director for any reason, or for no reason at all. I’m not going to spend time on the decision or the way it was executed. I hope you won’t either. It […]
