Coronavirus Donald Trump

Adam Schiff Has The Absolute Best Response To Trump’s Claim Of ‘Total Authority’

At Monday’s Coronavirus Task Force press briefing, Donald Trump had a full-scale mental meltdown for the ages. He attacked the media for daring to report on his numerous mistakes since COVID-19 first arrived in the United States, launched personal insults at reporters, and then declared that he had the “ultimate authority” to decide if and when the nation is reopened.

Of course, Trump does not have any such dictatorial authority (though he almost certainly wants to), and the final decision of when each state will lift its stay-at-home order is the sole purview of the governors, as it should be.

But while Trump’s absurd remarks on “ultimate authority” were debated by experts on the Constitution, Rep. Adam SchIff (D-CA), Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee and the lead manager at Trump’s impeachment, had what is so far the best response to the Madness of King Donald, and he made sure to post on Twitter, where the president would be unable to miss it:

Boom! Game, set, and match, Adam Schiff!

What makes Schiff’s words even more powerful is that he’s 100 percent accurate. Donald Trump is the most bumbling and incompetent man to ever hold the office of President of the United States. Sure, Gerald Ford may have fallen down more often, but at least Ford had a brain inside his skull.

Others also joined the discussion after reading Schiff’s tweet:

November 3 cannot get here soon enough.
