Adam Schiff tries to use Trump’s naughty new ‘nickname’ to play victim and ask for money … bad idea!

Someone should have reminded Rep. Adam Schiff about the folly of spitting in the wind.

The California Democrat’s decision to capitalize on President Trump’s insult backfired, but provided endless entertainment on social media.

Schiff took to Twitter to complain that the president had just leveled “his most profane insult yet” when he referred to him with a naughty new nickname on Twitter: “Little Adam Schitt.”

Potentially the next chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Schiff has been a vocal and scathing critic of the president. On ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday, the lawmaker warned that Democrats would be challenging Trump’s appointment of acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker to replace former Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Trump reacted in a tweet later Sunday, bestowing the intentionally misspelled name on Schiff.

The Democrat fired back, fueling questions about whether Trump’s tweet was a new nickname for the congressman or a typo.

But while Schiff may have drummed up some sympathy for being targeted by the president, he lost any credibility with a self-serving request for donations on Monday.

The collective eye roll on Twitter was inescapable.

And the responses kept coming, though probably not the kind Schiff was looking for.

Seems Democrats never learn: the more they attack him, the more Trump wins.
