President Trump Calls California Rep. “Little Adam Schitt” in Tweet

HeadlineNov 19, 2018
H12 trump schitt tweet

President Trump attacked California Democratic Congressmember Adam Schiff Sunday, misspelling his last name. Trump tweeted, “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!” Schiff is poised to head the House Intelligence Committee after Democrats retake control of the House in January. He vowed to take action against acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker if he intervenes to halt special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe. Schiff also called Whitaker’s appointment after the forced resignation of Jeff Sessions unconstitutional. In response to Trump’s attack, Schiff tweeted, “Wow, Mr. President, that’s a good one. Was that like your answers to Mr. Mueller’s questions, or did you write this one yourself?”
