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.
Democrats argue that Whitaker, who was appointed by Trump following the resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, should be subject to Senate approval.
Mueller, the special counsel in charge of the Justice Department’s investigation of Russian election interference, does not need to be confirmed by the Senate to his position. The attorney general appoints special prosecutors.
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!

BREAKING: Trump just called Congressman Adam Schiff “Little Adam Schitt.” This is so disgusting. A toddler for a president. Ridiculous. Absolutely insane. He needs to resign yesterday. What a pathetic disgrace to our country. America deserves better than this whack job man baby.

Sarah Sanders a few days ago: "There must be decorum at the White House.”
Trump today: *calls Democrat Adam Schiff "Adam Schitt"*
