James Comey Gets Fired, Father John Misty Sings About It

    You know, I'm glad that Father John Misty isn't taking himself too seriously anymore. Last year he stopped his set at XPNFest midway to lecture the crowd about evil, dropping some downers like "Maybe just take a moment to be really fucking profoundly sad. It's a lot less sexy of a festival look." And then he came out with Pure Comedy of course, which was great but also took a heavy toll on the listener.

    After given the news that Donald Trump has fired FBI chief James Comey while investigating Trump's links to Russia, like always, Father John Misty responded. Except he didn't respond how we all thought he would. It wasn't sad or angry - but it was comical. He tweeted a video labeled as "folk music" which features him eating pizza and singing, "James Comey was fired in the month of May ... James Comey was fired from the CIA." Of course, the CIA thing is just for rhyming purposes. I think I smell a Pure Comedy: Part 2 coming soon.
