Consider the game officially changed. James Comey has voted in his Democratic primary, and the lucky winner of his endorsement is … Joe Biden:
Voted in first Dem primary to support party dedicated to restoring values in WH. I agree with @amyklobuchar: We need candidate who cares about all Americans and will restore decency, dignity to the office. There is a reason Trump fears @joebiden and roots for Bernie. #Biden2020

That’s great and all, James, but did you ever stop to consider how Joe Biden might feel about your vote of confidence? Maybe Biden rapid response director Andrew Bates’ take will provide a little insight:
Yes, customer service? I just received a package that I very much did not order. How can I return it, free of charge? https://t.co/NK4VrYGzT1

Of course, not everyone’s amused:
This is… not a good look.

Not cool. Be gracious.

Please be gracious. The correct response is thank you or say nothing.

You’d think candidates would want votes. Grow up.

Maybe Bates is just thinking about this from a practical standpoint:
The guy that helped Trump win the election, endorses the guy that will help Trump win reelection.
James Comey is the best Republican Operative ever.

Will Team Biden’s strategy pay off?
As a Biden voter I am seriously reconsidering my vote if this is how his campaign is going to act!

Ugh, I’m literally just heading out to vote (for Biden) and this snarky answer is giving me pause. This is exactly what I want to get away from. Damn.
