There’s a fine line between the current state of American politics and a movie so bad not even Delta would show it.
The House Intelligence Committee’s hearing with FBI director James Comey on Monday was easily one of the most surreal moments in American history/CSPAN-3 in recent memory. A presidential campaign under investigation for potentially colluding with a foreign adversary. An FBI Director rejecting the POTUS’ claim that the former POTUS illegally wiretapped him.
Not even John Grisham could imagine a plotline so apocalyptic as this — so the people must instead.
Shortly after the Comey hearing, journalist Sarah Kendzior began to speculate who would play who in #TrumpRussiaTheMovie and Twitter filled in the rest. Here’s their best guesses as well, as a few of our own.
