President Donald Trump terminated FBI director James Comey yesterday, on the recommendation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. The move apparently came as a surprise to several White House staffers and Comey himself, who apparently learned of his firing from watching television and thought he was being pranked. Lest you've forgotten: The FBI is currently investigating ties between Trump campaign staffers and the Russian government.

In the frantic hours after Press Secretary Sean Spicer announced the termination, the good citizens of Twitter took to their keyboards to express a whole range of reactions over the news.
