James Comey Expertly Trolled Trump On NPR's Popular Game Show 'Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me' ๐Ÿ˜‚

By Vanessa Nix Anthony

Former FBI director James Comey took a dig at President Trump during NPRโ€™s popular news quiz show โ€œWait Wait... Donโ€™t Tell Meโ€ on Saturday. 

When Comey chose the wrong answer to a multiple choice question, he quickly changed his answer: 

I meant to say I wouldn't take "A."

Comey was referring to Trump's statement from last Tuesday when he tried to divorce himself from a comment he made during the recent summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, claiming he intended to say the word "wouldn't" instead of "would." 

Comey didn't get off without a little hazing of his own. Following his quip, the show's host, Peter Sagal, said he'd like to re-open the game show for one more question, a reference to Comey re-opening his investigation into Hilary Clinton's emails just before the 2016 election.

You can listen to the audio from the program here. The James Comey section starts at about the 20:22 mark, with Comey's answer coming at the 27:30 mark:
