Even if you’re a Republican or someone on the far right who doesn’t care for Democrats, what Donald Trump has done now is totally unacceptable. I can’t believe any American believes it’s right to demean a US Senator in this way. Trump refers to California Congressman Adam Schiff as “Little Adam Schitt” in a new Tweet. If you’re a Christian, is this the way you want the President of the United States to refer to anyone? Of any party?
Of course, Trump is infamous for making up belittling nicknames for people he fears, the way a schoolyard bully might at 10 years old. “Little Marco,” and so on.
Schiff has served as a Congressman from California since 2001. He has an exemplary record. As with many things Trump, this is completely unacceptable. The GOP should be apologizing, as well as the White House. Trump has driven the national conversation into the ground. He respects nothing and no one. We saw that with the way he treated John McCain. This is more of the same.
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!
