White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham has been steadfast in her defense of President Donald Trump since taking over for her predecessor, Sarah Sanders, and she just delivered a knockout blow to head impeachment manager Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA).
After Schiff complained that he felt threatened by a recent tweet from Trump, Grisham diagnosed Schiff with a “mental issue,” saying that he’s “obsessed with this president and trying to take him down,” The Washington Times reported.
Poor Adam Schiff
Adam Schiff has proven to be one of the biggest snowflakes in the history of politics. After throwing out allegation after allegation at Trump, one tweet from the president, and Schiff is ready to call in the Secret Service for protection.
On Sunday, President Trump sent out the following tweet: “Shifty Adam Schiff is a CORRUPT POLITICIAN, and probably a very sick man. He has not paid the price, yet, for what he has done to our Country!”
Schiff immediately went on the news circuit, saying Trump had threatened him. When asked directly if he believed Trump had threatened him, Schiff stated: “I think it’s intended to be. This is a wrathful, vindictive president.”
Trump was clearly stating that the American people were going to hold Schiff accountable for his actions, but it was instead made out to be some type of death threat against Schiff.
When Grisham was asked to comment on Schiff’s take on Trump’s tweet, she stated that she believed he was having a mental crisis.
“Quite frankly, it seems like he’s having a little bit of a mental issue when you sit on the floor for hours and hours and hours,” Grisham said, according to the Times. “He is obsessed with this president and trying to take him down.”
Holding Schiff accountable
Schiff has recently been exposed for his longstanding history of twisting the truth and even outright lying to further his agenda, and the mainstream media has ignored his record so far.
For instance, Schiff promised that the so-called “whistleblower” would testify in the impeachment inquiry, which didn’t happen. Schiff also stated there was absolute evidence of Trump colluding with Russia, and then Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report debunked that claim.
There are many more examples of Schiff’s misrepresentations of the truth, yet the media continues to allow Schiff to get away with lie after lie. This, by the way, is not opinion or a right-wing slant, but absolute truth that is verified by video and documents in public view.
At some point, Schiff is going to have to answer for the lies and deceit of the last three years and beyond — it is just a question of our government having the courage to hold him accountable.
