Trump Released The Memo That Was Supposed To Discredit The FBI And People Are Freaking

Donald Trump is being investigated for possible collusion withe the Russian government during the election. Everyone suspects he loves Putin far more than he loves the U.S. Either that or a certain rumored Pee Tape is hanging over his head?

Trump has seemingly been trying to fight the allegations by firing investigators and bringing up Hillary Clinton. The GOP, in particular Republican David Nunes, is also working to support his cause. A group of Republicans have been cooking up a “memo” that states the FBI is biased against their president. Thus, any information they gather is false. Presto, change-o, innocence!

The memo was released on Friday to Fox News and the Washington Examiner. It argues that the Steele dossier was what first directed the FBI to start tracking Trump’s campaign advisor Carter Page. However, the FBI has been investigation Page since 2013, and argue that the memo is just choosing a series of details without further context to try and discredit the DOJ and FBI. They think Nunes hasn’t even read the dossier.

Trump will possibly use it as an excuse to fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein who is overseeing special counsel Robert Mueller as he investigates Trump’s connection to Russia. Perfect.

Okay, that’s not a lot! It’s not certain which way the wind will blow, but people are already tearing through this thing, hashtagging their spree on Twitter with #MemoDay.

Most just can’t believe that the president is undermining his democracy. To which, I ask, have you been unconscious the last 12 months?

Even Jeff Sessions seems disturbed by it:

Most don’t even see what the memo is supposed to be proving, except what was already known—Carter Page is a suspected spy.

And many pointed out that in 2016, the only person the FBI really took a swing at was Hillary Clinton:

And others are wondering why the memo doesn’t address some of the pressing Russian issues in Trump’s life:

And then there are the JOKERS (bless them):

Hugh Jackman Apologizes To The Actor Who Was Originally Supposed To Play Wolverine

It’s hard to imagine anyone else other than Hugh Jackman (aka Huge Jacked Man) playing Wolverine in the X-Men films. The man grabbed hold of the role and absolutely ran with it, churning out some OK, to not-so-great, to bad, to an ultimately amazing film about everyone’s favorite grumpy mutant.

And although the role absolutely belongs to Hugh, even if he admits he’s “too tall” to play the muscular little harbinger of death, it wasn’t always Jackman’s role. That’s right, Fox originally pegged Dougray Scott for the role.

If you’re trying to remember who Scott is, he’s the handsome Scotsman who played the main villain in Mission Impossible 2. Watch him dramatically grab this scarf from blowing away in the wind.

He also had a motorcycle duel with Tom Cruise in the movie, but let’s not dwell on that awesomeness too much.

It was, in fact, Scott’s shoots in Mission Impossible 2 that went over schedule, and ultimately cost him the role of Wolverine. Hugh was there to nab it and now, over 17 years later, the man has left a cinematic legacy that’s basically defined his career and earned both himself and production companies a lot of money.

Jackman went on to talk about someone else taking up the claws as Wolverine, and hopes that when that time comes he’s able to let go of the role gracefully.

As for Scott, although he’s not a household name like Jackman, the actor’s had a career of consistent work in some cool projects, including the Netflix Werewolf series Hemlock Grove. Currently he’s in a new adaptation of The Woman in White, gothic TV mini-series. Although it’s easy to sit around and wonder what could have been, Scott doesn’t seem to allow himself to get too worked up over missing out on the role, chalking it up to it being the nature of the business.

At least he was a good sport about it!
