As usual, a story being labeled by many as a potential “scandal” is getting the obligatory suffix:
Oh god, i just read words "ComeyGate". No, no, no, no, no, no. No. We will not attach Gate to this. Move on, people. Move on. Get new name.

Former senior adviser to President Obama Dan Pfeiffer couldn’t help himself:
Going forward, we will attach "gate" to real scandals, "Ghazi" to fake scandals, and we will refer to all crises as someone's "Katrina" https://t.co/CFd0CGluOM

Dude, nice try, but no:
Remember that fake scandal where people died and a man was arrested over a youtube video? https://t.co/7jyPTW5fLO

It depends on what your definition of “fake scandal” is.

Calling Benghazi a fake scandal is pretty disgusting. 4 people, including an ambassador, died because your old boss’s State Dept let them. https://t.co/35yiLoLziP
