Chris Pratt Trolls Trump's Comey Firing With Perfect 'Parks And Recreation' Tweet

This is a case for Burt Macklin.

Chris Pratt’s political affiliations have been up for debate ever since he opened up about not feeling represented by either political party. But it’s time to add a point in the resistance column after the actor fired off a tweet seemingly poking fun at President Donald Trump’s latest political scandal.

On Tuesday, Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, who was heading an investigation into possible ties between the Russian government and the Trump 2016 presidential campaign.

Enter Pratt sharing the tweet to end all tweets by roasting Trump’s decision with a perfectly suited GIF of his FBI agent alter-ego, Burt “Tyrannosaurus” Macklin.

See, for seven seasons Pratt starred on the NBC sitcom “Parks and Recreation,” playing the lovable goof Andy Dwyer, who had a tendency to transform into the crime-solving hero when the opportunity arose — like that time someone threw a pie at Leslie Knope during a campaign rally.

“Just lemme know,” Pratt wrote on Wednesday alongside a GIF of Macklin diving in front of Mount Rushmore.

Message received, Pratt.
