Adam Schiff Makes Insulting Jokes About Senators During Trial – Does He Even Care Anymore?

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi appointed a handful of managers for the impeachment trial and assigned Rep. Adam Schiff to head the team of against President Trump. This was an extremely good call by Pelosi because Schiff is just showing everyone how ridiculous the House Democrats really are.

I have no idea what Schiff was thinking – he probably wasn't actually – but he thought that the impeachment trial was a good time to practice his stand-up routine.

Schiff said, “But I also want to again take this opportunity to thank the senators for their long and considerable attention over the course of the last two days.

I’m not sure the Chief justice is fully aware of just how rare it is, how extraordinary it is for the House members to be able to command the attention of senators sitting silently for hours–or even for minutes for that matter.

Um, of course it doesn’t hurt that the morning starts out every day with the Sergeant at Arms warning you that if you don’t, you will be imprisoned. Um, it’s our hope that when the trial concludes and you’ve heard us and you’ve heard the President’s counsel over a series of long days that you don’t choose imprisonment instead of anything further.”

The fact that he's trying to make a joke shows how lightly he's taking the entire impeachment trial.

The impeachment of a sitting U.S. President is to be a solemn event. This is an extremely rare thing and he's trying to make jokes about the Senate, inappropriate ones at that.

Rep. Lee Zeldin responded to Schiff’s comment via Twitter:

“Adam Schiff kicks off Day 3 of the Senate impeachment trial threatening Senators with imprisonment. Not sure what he’s worse at: reading his audience or telling jokes. Either way he is not helping his cause.”
