Donald Trump‘s latest Twitter attack is against California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, where the commander in chief calls him, “little Adam Schitt.”
Trump mocked the congressman with the name in a Sunday tweet, writing it was “so funny” that Schiff was “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!”
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!

In recent days, the congressman has denounced Trump’s appointment of Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, even calling it his “most direct challenge to the rule of law” in a Washington Post editorial last week.
Whitaker’s appointment has been the target of widespread controversy for the president’s failure to have him approved by the senate first.
Though Trump’s tweet decried Special Counsel Robert Mueller not having received Senate approval, that is not a necessary step of the appointment process for his position.
UPDATE: Schiff just responded to the president’s tweet:
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

Twitter had a field day:
Not so funny to see the president of the United States making scat jokes, or betraying his ignorance of the Constitution he swore to uphold. https://t.co/GNLKQKOBZH

This is the moron currently occupying the oval office. How sad for this great nation. Anyone who still supports and defends this POS, is beyond deplorable. https://t.co/jfGbBFMUsc

Even more evidence (not that it was necessary) that the President of the United States acts like a 4 year old https://t.co/1sUhX87XPd

“Little Adam Schitt”
Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you “the president of the United States” — the one who is demanding people respect his office, use decorum when addressing him
What a disgrace
