Yesterday, the U.S. President Donald Trump fired the FBI director James Comey. This was announced by the White House. Apparently, he was fired because over his handling of the questioning about Hillary Clinton’s emails. However, many people believe that FBI started to investigate possible connections between Donald Trump and Russia and that is the real reason Comey was fired. It was announced that he was fired in “The View” and the hosts didn’t expect their audience would be happy about that.

The ladies on “The View” clearly didn’t expect their audience to cheer as they announced Wednesday on their show that President Donald Trump had fired FBI Director James Comey.
“I’m sure you all have heard, but FBI Director James Comey’s been fired,” Whoopi Goldberg announced to the audience who could be heard cheering.
The host then explained that the firing was specifically over the way Comey dealt with the Hillary Clinton email investigation. Later, she questioned what changed between Trump and Comey that lead to this decision.
“I think what broke it up was the criminal investigation into the Trump’s campaign’s ties to Russia,” Sunny Hostin explained.
“Hell hath no fury like an orange demi-god scorned,” Joy Behar responded. “Isn’t the reason he fired Comey have to do with the fact that he’s upset that Hillary Clinton got the shaft from Comey. I mean his affection for Hillary is so touching all of the sudden.”
“I had mixed emotions about it,” Jedediah Bila responded. “On the one hand, I was really glad that he was fired because I feel like Comey’s been a problem for a long time. With that being said, the timing…if you’re [Trump] citing in the letter that you have a problem with Comey as a result of something that happened last summer, why are you firing him today.”
So, James Comey was fired because of something he messed up last year. Why was he fired now? It looks like the real reason is the investigation about Trump’s connections with Russia. What are your thoughts? Tell us in the comment section!
