If it turns out to be true, these will be the stages of Republican denial in the media and among the wingnut base regarding the Comey memo:
- Ignore it.
- Deny it’s real.
- Admit it’s real but that Comey should have said something in February.
- Actually, scratch that, it’s hearsay.
- Hope that more memos are made available so they can look for references to pizza.
And you can liberally add “Comey is a cuck” to pretty much any of those stages.
