Kimmel: Trump Fired James Comey for Making Him President (Uproxx)

Much like The Daily Show, Jimmy Kimmel got an early shot to comment on James Comey’s shocking removal as the director of the FBI. While he could’ve easily parlayed the attention he got for his healthcare monologue last week into another politically charged segment to kick off tonight’s show, he remembered he was Jimmy Kimmel and took the funnier road instead. Instead of just running down the details of what happened today with Comey and the ongoing investigation into the Russian ties in the Trump campaign, Kimmel decides to do something to help the guy who just lost his job.

It truly is an outrageous situation, as Kimmel says, so a fine t-shirt is the least Americans can purchase for the cool price of $29.99. With that, the host promises to write a strongly-worded letter to The White House and put the money towards that. At least some of it.
