Former FBI director James Comey posted a cryptic announcement on Twitter on Monday.
“I’m in. We need someone in the middle. #2020,” he wrote along with a picture of himself standing in the middle of a rural road with his back to the camera.
He probably thought he was being funny, but the joke seemed to be on him based on the Twitter responses he got.
Comey, once a registered Republican who is now unaffiliated, followed his announcement later in the afternoon with a tweet about it all being an April Fool’s joke. He then encouraged his followers to vote for a Democrat for president in 2020.
