Trump Went After Adam Schiff On Twitter And Shiff’s Response Is Pure Gold



We could talk no end about how President Donald Trump‘s incessant, emotion-charged, frantic and cataclysmically irresponsible tweeting both demeans the office of the US presidency and puts us all in very grave danger every single day. Or we could just let the tweets speak for themselves.

In a recent tweet, President Trump apparently disparaged the likely House Intelligence chairman Rep. Adam Schiff by misspelling his surname, calling him “Adam Schitt”. This is juvenile, childish stuff. Not only is it a million miles away from being presidential, but trying to insult someone by making their name sound like a mild swearword is surely indicative of a highly unintelligent person.

We shouldn’t be too quick to leap to judgement, though. It’s entirely possible, of course, that the spelling was accidental and Trump simply didn’t notice. Don’t forget, this is the man who gave us ‘covfefe’. Not that that makes it better, obviously – this guy is our President, after all. He could spell check his tweets.

The profane tweet read:

“So funny to see little Adam Schitt (D-CA) talking about the fact that Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker was not approved by the Senate, but not mentioning the fact that Bob Mueller (who is highly conflicted) was not approved by the Senate!” 

Even putting aside the profanity and immature jab at Rep. Schiff, the argument Trump is making here makes no sense whatsoever. He is responding to criticism in recent days from Schiff regarding his appointment of Matthew Whitaker, former DoJ Chief of Staff, as Acting Attorney General to replace the recently fired Jeff Sessions.

It’s not like Schiff’s criticism was baseless. This is a guy who has been accused of fraud on multiple occasions in the past, with the question marks over his career history far too numerous for someone in such a senior position. Not to mention the fact that the much more highly qualified and clearly better suited Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein was passed over for the promotion, which is obviously a result of the fact that Rosenstein believes in the integrity of the probe by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into the 2016 Trump campaign, as opposed to Whitaker who somehow signs up to Trump’s ludicrous rhetoric of it being a “witch hunt” rather than a factually grounded, constitutionally mandated and entirely necessary legal inquiry.

It goes without saying that the point Trump is making is entirely fatuous. It’s true that Mueller did not require Senate confirmation for his position because he was appointed by Rosenstein, along with swathes of other DoJ employees. Not that inconvenient facts like that should bother the President.
