People are comparing Donald Trump to Bill Clinton again, but it’s not because of their treatment of women.

Rather, the comparison is being made between Donald Trump’s dinner and phone calls with former FBI Director James Comey and Bill Clinton’s airplane meeting with Loretta Lynch.

Many conservatives were angry when Clinton met with Lynch while his wife Hillary was under investigation for her emails, and some say they should be equally upset with Trump asking Comey if he is under investigation for Russia collusion.

Sopan Deb, a writer for the New York Times, tweeted, “What if Hillary Clinton proudly boasted about calling Comey or Loretta Lynch and demanding details on the e-mail investigation?”

Others, including conservative Ben Shapiro, called out the alleged hypocrisy.

As Barro mentions, Joe Scarborough was one of the first to bring up the comparisons during a Thursday interview on MSNBC.

“What if it came out that Bill Clinton got on the airplane with Loretta Lynch and asked the status of the email investigation? And the President just admitted that he did this,” Scarborough said. “I wonder if those Republicans are going to be just as critical of the President of the United States.”
