Trump Goes To The Potty In Nasty New Nickname For Rep. Adam Schiff

    President Trump has a history of bestowing nicknames onto his critics. The latest victim is Rep. Adam Schiff, who has been outspoken about investigating the president and holding acting attorney general Matthew Whitaker accountable, should he meddle in special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe.

    Trump referred to the latter in a tweet Sunday, writing that Schiff’s criticism of Whitaker is contradictory. He changed the California Democrat’s last name to a crude word, calling him “little Adam Schitt.”

    “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!” Trump posted.

    Schiff said in a recent interview on NBC that there are “very strong” facts proving that Whitaker shouldn’t even be overseeing the probe.

    “This is someone who’s made repeated and prejudicial comments against the investigation,” he said. “Someone who has made false statements about it, claiming that the Russians really had no impact on our election. It’s someone who has a relationship with one of the important witnesses in the investigation.”
