The James Comey Statement Has Twitter Singing A Lauryn Hill Classic

That thing, that thing, that thiiiiiing.

The opening statement by former FBI Director James Comey, released on Wednesday ahead of his testimony in an open hearing on Thursday, has Twitter singin’ en masse.

In the statement, Comey describes a conversation he had with President Donald Trump in which he says Trump told him, “I have been very loyal to you, very loyal; we had that thing you know.’ I did not reply or ask him what he meant by ‘that thing.’”

What is “that thing”? Well, the internet was intent on taking a stab at guessing what it could be: 

Others couldn’t help but find “that thing” reminded them of a particular Lauryn Hill song from 1998: “Doo Wop (That Thing).”

And everyone felt inclined to tweet the lyrics in relation to the statement:


BRB, gotta go hit a karaoke bar and keep this Lauryn Hill train goin’.
