James Comey’s speech at Howard University hit by protesters

Published

on

If former FBI Director James Comey’s first day on his new job is any indication, he may want to call President Trump and ask him for a second chance.

While trying to deliver a speech at Howard University, Comey was instantly met by loud protesters. They continued on for several minutes before Comey tried to go ahead and give his speech. He made it through very little that could be heard easily. Ironically, a good part of his speech was about “noise” taking away our attention.

Comey has joined the staff at Howard as a lecturer.
