Flatiron Books landed themselves a literary coup when they signed former FBI director James Comey to write a book last year soon after he was fired by President Donald Trump.

The book was originally scheduled to be released on May 1, but has since been moved up 2 weeks by Flatiron because of increased news coming out of the FBI and the Russia investigation. The announcement of the moved-up release date was met with mockery by Trump fans on Twitter.

Comey got himself a reported “multimillion-dollar book deal” to write on leadership, called “Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership,” which is widely expected to be an attack on Trump. Flatiron announced Wednesday, “We are confirming that A Higher Loyalty by @Comey has a new publication date! You can get your copy on April 17th,” and it was immediately met with scorn and mockery.

The news became the butt of jokes by fans of the president.
