President Donald Trump drew chuckles from the internet again after an attack on Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), though it was a misspelled attack. Calling him “Little Adam Schitt,” Trump’s misspelled tweet attacked the Democrat for calling out acting Attorney General Matthew Whitiker for not being approved by the Senate.
“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 wrote.

Special counsels aren’t Constitutionally required to be approved by the U.S. Senate. Instead, Trump appointed Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Robert Mueller. Rosenstein was confirmed by the Republican Senate. Mueller was confirmed when he was appointed by George W. Bush to head the FBI.
Schiff issued his own clap-back at Trump:
“Wow, Mr. President, that’s a good one,” he tweeted. “Was that like your answers to Mr. Mueller’s questions, or did you write this one yourself?”
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? https://t.co/Yd27sayt7C

Couple things. 1) POTUS is enormous so everyone looks little to him. Obese enormous. 2) ‘Adam Schitt’ could be intentional or maybe not. POTUS went to Paradise, CA to view the destruction and forgot the name of the town. He called it Pleasure. Either way he’s a moron.

While our Witless Leader calls one of our Representatives “Schitt”, Bette Midler is still taking heat for calling Melania, FLOTITS. Isn’t this fun?

Friday: @PressSec calls for “decorum at the White House”.
Sunday: @realDonaldTrump calls US Representative Adam Schiff “little Adam Schitt”.
These are awful people. https://t.co/L7gAOevN86

The most petty insecure president ever. I bet you thought you were so clever spelling his name “Schitt”. Is that the respect and decorum the @GOP “leadership” is about?

I'm just gonna log off until y'all get this schitt out of your systems

"Little Adam Schitt" will have subpoena powers come January.
And then you will be Schitting yourself.

I’m sure what the President meant to say was Rep. Adam Schiff. Although it’s hard to see how “Rep.” autocorrects to “little”. Schiff and “Schitt” I underst… no wait, Twitter just autocorrected “Schitt” to Schiff. Well shit, DJ. I tried to help you. Don’t Schitt and tweet. https://t.co/fI5DD2XW9T

Congress had 100 subpoenas ready for Trump, that "little Adam Schitt" just added 10 more.
