On Wednesday night’s episode of “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” host Seth Meyers and former SNL star Amy Poehler revived their “Really?!” segment to go after former FBI Director James Comey.
The reason for their outrage was Comey’s tweet sent out over the weekend that told the Democrats to not “lose your minds” and “rush to the socialist left.”
“Democrats, please, please don’t lose your minds and rush to the socialist left,” wrote Comey. “This president and his Republican Party are counting on you to do exactly that. America’s great middle wants sensible, balanced, ethical leadership.”
“Really, James Comey? You want to weigh in on things when there’s an election coming up? You feel like that’s gone well for you in the past?” Meyers said. “That’s like Michael Jordan saying, ‘I think I’m gonna take another shot at baseball.'”
“Really, James Comey?” Poehler echoed. “You’re worried that Democrats are gonna move too far to the left? Really? I don’t know if you remember, but we were just about to have a nice, boring, moderate Democrat for a president until you decided to open up your mouth a week before the election, you big dumb scarecrow!”
“I’ll take your political advice as soon as I’m done with my Jeffrey Dahmer cookbook and my Harvey Weinstein fitness tapes!” Meyers chimed back.
“The idea of you playing advisor to the Democratic Party is kinda like the iceberg trying to join the crew of the Titanic,” said Poehler before telling Comey to “shut up, sit down, take a nap, and get a life.”

Comey just might need some ice for all those harsh burns.
