Trump just attacked the top Intel Democrat over the Russia probe. His response is epic


They say you’re not paranoid if they’re really out to get you.

That may be true, but this morning, President Trump is reminding us that even if the FBI, a Special Prosecutor, and Democrats on several committees are building airtight cases against you, you can still be a maniacal sociopath.

Feeling the heat, Trump launched a smear attack on Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA), the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, and the Congressman’s biting response is sure to incite several more Twitter outbursts from our thin-skinned commander of tweets. (Schiff’s response is below.)

Shortly before the release of disgraced House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes’ (R-CA) phony memo alleging imaginary crimes against Democrats and the FBI, Schiff announced that he would release his own memo showing the truth behind the corruption of Trump’s enablers.

By Trump’s behavior this morning, that has the president quaking in his boots. Trump tweeted this infantile, preemptive attack on Schiff:


Take action now to demand Congress stop Trump from firing Special Prosecutor Mueller!

It’s hard to miss the subconscious references to Trump’s own insecurities: “little” (see hands), “liars,” “leakers” (from a White House with more leaks than the Titanic).

Trump even went on to praise Nunes, whose memo was debunked the moment it was released with a laughable tweet singling out the courage and grit of a sycophant so deep in the president’s pocket he’s looking up at lint:

Nunes publicly recused himself from the Russia investigation after getting caught tipping off the White House to details of the investigation, but he has violated that recusal again and again to spread lies and carry Trump’s water.

Much to Schiff’s credit, he isn’t getting caught up in the tit-for-tat nonsense. Instead he’s reminding the country that the president has a job to do, responsibilities of the highest order, and Donald Trump is neglecting the work he was elected to do (by a minority of the public).


Schiff and his Democratic colleagues, on the other hand, seem determined to do their jobs however — even it means bringing a lawless president to justice.
