At one point, James Comey held a very powerful role in American policy and politics: He was the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. He served as director of the FBI from September 2013 until May 2017, when he was abruptly fired by newly elected president, Donald Trump.

The news made headlines across the country, especially since the timing of the firing was rather suspicious: At the time, James Comey was tasked with spearheading the investigation into possible collusion between the 2016 Trump Campaign and the Russian government in order to skew election results in favor of Donald Trump. The president, of course, has repeatedly denied all claims of Russian involvement or collaboration.

On Sunday, James Comey took to Twitter to throw massive shade at Donald Trump. He expressed his concerns about America’s current leader, saying “A good leader takes a little more than his share of  the blame, a little less than his share of credit,” a quote by business Arnold H. Glasow, who died in 1998.

The conspicuous timing of the Tweet suggests that Comey’s comments may have something to do with something President Trump tweeted just hours before, regarding the three UCLA basketball players who were recently freed from China after reportedly shoplifting from a store.

The president once again seems to be heaping all credit and praise upon himself, while Comey’s tweet is simply a response to this deeply rooted and pervasive personality flaw. He even went as far to put blame on the freed basketball players, calling them “ungrateful.”

This is not the first time that James Comey’s tweets have targeted and criticized Donald Trump. Last week, after Donald Trump called him a liar, James Comey responded by tweeting once again.

An obstruction of justice case against Donald Trump in regards to the suspicious timing of his firing of James Comey has been opened. Comey’s recent tweet suggests that the former FBI director has remained calm, cool and collected, despite the fact that he had recently lost his job. Perhaps he takes comfort in his knowledge that justice will be served.
