James Comey's "Lordy" and "No Fuzz" Comments Spark Multiple Reactions on Twitter

Merriam-Webster got in on the action, tweeting out the definition to the word "Lordy" and its confusion over the former FBI director's use of the term "no fuzz."

Former FBI Director James Comey's testimony before the Senate intelligence committee on Thursday lit up social media, but a few comments in particular caught the public's eye. 

Referring to President Trump's suggestion in May that Comey "better hope that there are no 'tapes'" of their conversations, Comey said Thursday, "Lordy, I hope there are tapes."

Trump had made the comment on Twitter following a report by the New York Times that stated Trump had told Comey, "I hope you can let this go" in regard to the investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Social media immediately caught on to the comments, with stars such as Captain America's Chris Evans tweeting the quote. "I need 'Lordy, I hope there are tapes' on a t-shirt.'"

Merriam-Webster's Twitter account also got into the act, tweeting out a link to the definition of the word "Lordy."

The dictionary's official account also poked fun at Comey saying there's "no fuzz" on Russian involvement in the election, tweeting, "We're a little fuzzy on Comey's usage."

Actor John Cusack also tweeted about "no fuzz," saying in part, "No fuzz on obstruction of justice - impeach."
