Following the New York Times releasing a report based on a memo they did not actually see for themselves, #ComeyMemo began to trend on Twitter. Unfortunately for liberals, and the media outlets that support them, the hashtag was quickly hijacked by supporters of President Donald Trump to mock ridiculous reports based on unnamed sources.

“Uh oh! Looks like another #ComeyMemo has been revealed,” Rebel Media’s DC Bureau Chief wrote in a tweet with a screenshot of a notepad memo which read, “Why does Trump get more scoops of ice cream than me?”

The memo allegedly states that Trump had told then-FBI Director James Comey during a meeting in February that he hoped he would get over the witchhunt against General Mike Flynn. The statement, if true, was apparently not serious enough for Comey to tell the Attorney General about.

“I just wrote a memo to myself saying all the people I have a vendetta against did bad things,” Infowars correspondent Paul Joseph Watson tweeted.

By evening, the hashtag was completely flooded with mockery — of both Comey and the media.

It is also important to note that Deputy Director Andrew McCabe confirmed in his testimony before Senate last week that the White House has not interfered with any investigation.
