Ready for Saturday Night Live " Weekend Update" Reunion? That's right, in a revival of their SNL segment "Really!?! With Seth and Amy", Amy Poehler joined Seth Meyers to haul James Comey on Wednesday Late Night with Seth Meyers.
Last week, former FBI director (and former Republicans) Comey urged "anyone who believes in the values of this country" to vote for Democrats in the upcoming interim elections, calling the Republican Party a pure reflection of President's values Trump.
Then Comey tweeted over the weekend: " Democrats, please, please do not lose your thoughts and hurry to the Socialist Left.This President and his Republican Party are counting on you to do just that The Big Middle America wants a sensible, balanced and ethical leadership. "
Given Comey's controversial role in the 2016 presidential election, some, including Hillary Clinton, believe that they overturned Trump's race by reopening Clinton's e-mails – Pöhler and Meyers did not assume that he was handing out election consultations to the Democrats.
"Really, James Comey, you want to say something about the upcoming elections, you feel like you've done well in the past?" Meyers started the tirade. "That's like Michael Jordan, who says, 'I think I'll have another shot at baseball.'"
"Really, James Comey, you are worried that Democrats are moving too far to the left? Really? I do not know if you remember, but we were just about to have a nice, boring, moderate Democrat for a president until you open your mouth a week before the election, you big stupid scarecrow! "Poehler entered.
Comey's tweets have recently joined the Democratic struggle to regain control of Congress in the midterm elections to temper the presidential conservative and nationalist ideology. Democratic Congress candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a self-proclaimed Democratic Social Democrat, beat Democrat Joe Crowley last month in a New York head fight. Maines Zak Ringelstein, the first major senatorial candidate to call himself a democratic socialist. The relative success of both candidates points to the ongoing debate about democratic values and the identity of the party. Allegedly for Comey, the appeal of Democratic socialist candidates also raises concerns that the party is swinging too far to the left in response to Trump's first year in office and change of office.
"For me, Democrats can vote for a bong in the form of Che Guevara and you have nothing to say about it!" Poehler grimaced. Meyers went on to curse Comey for telling the Democrats not to "lose their minds".
"I do not know if you noticed, but the ruling party is locking babies in cages, the president is talking about Vladimir Putin, as Jay-Z talks about Beyoncé, and the White House has more turnover than a Dairy Queen in September Really! "
Poehler also took the opportunity to become true for a second … somehow. "James, I understand," she said. "You feel guilty, and you do not want history to remind you of the guy who opened the door to the demise of democracy, I really do not blame you, but the idea of you playing Democratic Party advisers, is somewhat similar to the iceberg trying to join the crew of the Titanic. "
Comey, whose release in 2016 triggered a national outcry and the beginning of the Special Advisory Service of Robert Mueller in the relations of the Trump campaign to Russia, was not a Republican for about two years (although he does not seem to be a Democrat). Before the convention in 2016, he said, "I have been a registered Republican for almost an adult life, no longer registered."
