One day prior to the beginning of the Democrats’ public impeachment hearings, President Trump posted a new video on Twitter Tuesday morning, mocking House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA).
The video is a compilation of media clips, as news anchors reacted after Schiff read a fabricated version of President Trump’s July phone with the president of Ukraine in an earlier hearing in September.
Schiff excused it as just a “parody” but was slammed by media and politicians from both sides of the aisle for the stunt.
In the video Trump shared, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is first shown declaring that the president will be treated with “fairness.” The video then launches into a flurry of comments from the media slamming him for his parody reading.
Along with the video, President Trump tweeted, “A total Impeachment Scam by the Do Nothing Democrats!”
