In addition to having a lethal Twitter account, President Trump is also the accomplished master of funny derogative nicknames for his political adversaries that perfectly describe them in a few words.
Who can forget “Crooked Hillary” or “Lyin’ Ted” or “Low Energy Jeb!” during the epic struggle of the 2016 campaign season?
Now with the Democrats poised to assume power in the House and the investigations piling up, the POTUS unleashed one against a man who will be his chief nemesis when he reboots the Russian collusion hoax from his position as new chairman of the House Intel Committee.
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!

Via The Hill, “Trump labels Schiff ‘little Adam Schitt’”:
President Trump on Sunday attacked Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), labeling him as “little Adam Schitt” after the congressman suggested the appointment of Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker was unconstitutional.
“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 in a tweet.
Earlier Sunday, Schiff — who will likely be the next chairman of the House Intelligence Committee — said Democrats would challenge the appointment of Whitaker.
Schiff and other Democrats argue that Whitaker, who was appointed by Trump following the resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, should be subject to Senate approval.
The thin-skinned Congressman “Schitt” quickly hit back:
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

Get ready for the shitshow but the Democrats may be blundering directly into a trap of their own making with Trump likely to mock them relentlessly as they conduct their anti-American, Stalinist show trials.
