President Donald Trump released a tweet Thursday trolling comedian Rosie O’Donnell on the firing of FBI Director James Comey.
Trump sub-tweeted a six-month-old tweet from O’Donnell that called for Comey’s firing.
“FIRE COMEY,” O’Donell’s tweet stated.
We finally agree on something Rosie. https://t.co/BSP5F3PgbZ

“We finally agree on something Rosie,” Trump’s tweet read.
Trump fired Comey from his position as FBI director Tuesday night for the way Comey handled the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails. At the time, the White House said Trump made the decision after receiving two recommendations from Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Trump contradicted the White House statement in an interview with NBC’s Lester Holt Thursday. He told Holt he’d been planning to fire Comey for a while.
“Regardless of recommendation, I was going to fire Comey,” Trump said.
