Comey, who was fired by US President Donald Trump in May 2017, has been telling US voters for several days to cast their ballots for Democrats. Many on the social media platform found that a bit rich, given that the former law enforcement chief has been registered as a Republican for most of his life, not to mention the fact that Comey's decision to announced that the FBI was looking at new material tangentially connected to her email server scandal days before the 2016 presidential election is blamed by many, including Hillary Clinton herself, for her loss to Trump.

Comey announced in April, however, that he felt the party had "left [him]" and that it no longer reflects his values.

Now, he seems to be keen on making the Democrats resemble the party that dumped him for Trump.

Trump, after he fired Comey, said he'd done it because the FBI director had shown himself to be a "showboat, a grandstander" in his handling of the investigation into Clinton's use of a private email server while secretary of state and other high-profile probes. The president, it appears, is not alone in that sentiment these days.
