Donald Trump 'Reveals' James Comey's 'Golden' Replacement In Spoof Call With Vladimir Putin

"I think he’s a good fit."

President Donald Trump has already lined up a new director of the FBI.

In Conan O’Brien’s latest montage of imagined telephone calls, Trump tells Russian President Vladimir Putin he’s chosen a “really, really good boy” to succeed James Comey. On Tuesday, Trump fired Comey, who was heading an FBI investigation into possible ties between Trump officials and Russia.

“He’s golden,” the fake Trump said of Comey’s possible replacement. “Yeah, he already ate a lot of the files. I think he’s a good fit.”

Watch the clip above to see who Trump is thinking of, and to hear some of his other nicknames for “Rootin’ Tootin’ Putin.”
