Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), one of the architects of the impeachment effort, is spewing more incendiary rhetoric, but this time he went too far.
While appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Schiff had a meltdown about Trump supporters, saying that they’re “old and dying,” according to Breitbart — but it got even worse as his interview went on.
Underestimating Trump supporters
Schiff more or less believes that all Democrats have to do is show up this time around and they will defeat Trump. He bases this off of the fact that he believes the Trump base is dying off.
“They can do everything right and still lose because they don’t have the numbers,” he said. “The demographic that supports him is an older and dying, literally dying demographic.”
Has Schiff ever heard of Students for Trump or Turning Point USA or any of the other voting groups packed with voters under the age of 35 who support Trump? Does Schiff realize the root of Trump’s base is people under the age of 60 who felt disenfranchised by a corrupt government and were hoping to flush the swamp?
It just proves how out of touch Schiff is with reality, because he has been living in that little impeachment bubble of his for the last three years.
“Covered with shame”
Schiff also seems to believe that anyone that stood by Trump will be disgraced in upcoming years. “I think frankly anyone that stood by, stood with this president, lacked the kind of courage that Mitt Romney displayed, will be covered with shame. Covered with shame,” he declared. Take a look:
D.C. has gone Hollywood, and in a matter of a few minutes, Schiff proved to everyone he simply has no clue what he is talking about.
And, for the record, conservatives want greater turnout in November, because Trump’s numbers among minorities have never been higher, and moderate Dems and independents are flocking to Trump due to the extreme nature of the left these days.
When Election Day rolls around, Democrats will have to deal with the likelihood of a landslide victory in both the popular and electoral vote totals.
Let’s see how these comments by Schiff age. It’s likely we can throw them right back in his face after the election is over.
