Bug-eyed leftist lunatic Adam Schiff, who for years peddled misinformation regarding Trump’s alleged involvement with Russia and his 2016 electoral victory in the presidential election, remained as TDS-afflicted as ever while making the talk show rounds this past weekend.
As Democrats are wont to do, Schiff and his media buddies ignored the mounting challenges facing America and instead focused on the attention Twitter received after Elon Musk welcomed the former president back on the platform in response to the majority of over fifteen million users voting to do so in the affirmative.
It’s only a big story for Democrats because they see themselves losing their monopolistic grip on controlling narratives in real time.
Speaking to ABC’s Jonathan Karl on “This Week,” the hyper-partisan congressman who led Trump’s first impeachment and sits on the absurd January 6th select committee, delved into the issue of Musk lifting the ban.
It is a “terrible mistake” for Twitter’s Elon Musk to reinstate former Pres. Trump's account, Jan. 6 Committee member Rep. Adam Schiff tells @JonKarl.

As the clip shows, host Karl begins by addressing a few unquoted tweets from (more on that in a moment), and the eventual events of January 6th. He said that [w]atching the January 6th Committee hearings, Trump’s tweets were a big part of the story to be told. What do you think of him being back on Twitter?”
As for those tweets, Karl only vaguely references some dastardly writing that encouraged, motivated, inspired, and fomented what Democrats have claimed was an insurrection. In reality, Trump’s two tweets that day struck the same tone as his speech, in which he urged supporters to “peacefully and patriotically” march toward the Capitol.
Ignoring the patently obvious remarks made by the president both in person and online, Schiff continued pushing his lies on the host and the ABC audience. In response to Karl’s lead-in, Schiff said:
“I think it’s a terrible mistake and you’re absolutely right. As we showed in the January 6th hearings, the president used that platform to incite that attack on the Capitol, his comments about the vice president, his own vice president, put Mike Pence’s life in danger. He showed no remorse about that.
And he didn’t stop there. Schiff entered some bizarro rant about Trump continuing to lie and then even dragged Musk’s name into the conversation.
“He continues to lie about his actions on that day,” Schiff continued. “He talks about pardoning the people who attacked police officers and attacked the Capitol that day. And it contradicts what Elon Musk said that he was going to establish a counsel to evaluate this and further contradicts Musk and his claimed concern about bots on his own platform to subject the decision to a poll on the platform that could be easily abused that way,” he continued
Then, combining one false narrative with another, Schiff echoed the talking points of so many others that Musk is supposedly terrible at his job.
“It just underscores the erratic leadership of Twitter now under Musk, but also the security concerns, with security people fleeing Twitter and what that means for the protection of Americans’ private data,” he said.
As with the events of January 6th, which we now know included several FBI informants in the mix, including the second-in-command for the Oath Keepers, Schiff is hoping that repeating a lie often enough about Musk will alter reality for deluded Democrat voters. If he and others simply say that Elon Musk is a threat to democracy and incompetent, eventually it will become a new truth.
Or so they hope.
Townhall noted that the conversation only continued going sideways, with Schiff fear-mongering over the influence of MAGA-minded leaders in Congress derailing the RINO Kevin McCarthy. We can only hope.
In response to Karl’s reminder, Schiff offered, “I suspect he will do whatever [Rep.] Marjorie Taylor Greene wants him to do.” He also called McCarthy “a very weak leader of his conference,” adding, “meaning that he will adhere to the wishes of the lowest common denominator. And if that lowest common denominator wants to remove people from committees, that’s what they’ll do.”
Keeping with the drama and hysteria, Schiff lamented “it’s going to be chaos with the Republican leadership and sadly, the kind of the crazy caucus has grown among the Republicans,” referring to “Republicans who won primaries in deeply red districts are coming to Congress like the Marjorie Taylor Greenes and Paul Gosars” as a tragedy for the country.”
