There's no love lost between President Donald Trump and comedian Rosie O'Donnell — but there is one thing the two can "finally agree on."

Trump identified his common ground with O'Donnell in a tweet sent out Thursday afternoon.

"We finally agree on something Rosie," the president tweeted in response to a December tweet from O'Donnell in which she called for FBI Director James Comey to be "fired."

"FIRE COMEY," O'Donnell tweeted Dec. 20. O'Donnell's call for Comey's head to roll came in response to former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's campaign manager Brian Fallon saying Comey's decision to effectively reopen the FBI's investigation into Clinton's emails just days before the Nov. 8 election was "utterly unjustified."

Court documents showing the FBI's reasoning for reopening the Clinton email investigation were unsealed in late December. Clinton aides at the time blasted the unsealing of those documents, saying they revealed nothing more than the "tens of thousands or more messages [FBI] agents weeded through before the agency announced in July that it was not close to having the kind of evidence needed to bring a prosecution against her or anyone on her staff," Politico reported.

Comey faced criticism, especially from Democrats, for reopening the Clinton email investigation days before the election.

Democrats accused the director of influencing the outcome of the race by refocusing on Clinton's unusual private email server setup while she was secretary of state. Clinton said just last week that if the election had been held on Oct. 27 — before Comey sent Congress a letter informing them of the reopened investigation — then she would have been elected president.

Trump fired Comey Tuesday. The White House said the president made the decision based on the bureau's handling of the Clinton email investigation and not because of the FBI's ongoing investigation into Russia's alleged interference in the 2016 presidential election and alleged ties to the Trump campaign.
