Trump cited Comey's handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation as a reason for the firing.

However, critics say they are concerned about the timing of the termination because Comey was investigating alleged ties between the president's campaign and Russia.

As Political Twitter blew up with hot takes over the news, Meme Twitter soon began to imagine who could take over for Comey as head of the FBI. Many people arrived on one, totally obvious conclusion.

BREAKING: Burt Macklin expected to be named new director of the FBI. #TrumpRussia

They said it should be Burt Macklin, the FBI agent alter ego of Andy Dwyer (Chris Pratt) on Parks and Recreation.
