Pictures are worth a thousand words. As for cartoons, which are animated illustrations containing hundreds (if not thousands) of pictures, they’re simply priceless.

And such is the case, arguably, with a Looney Tunes-styled cartoon that White House Social Media Director Dan Scavino tweeted Wednesday afternoon and that President Donald Trump soon retweeted afterward.

Seen below, the cartoon reimagines Looney Tune character Wile E. Coyote as Schiff T. Coyote (Politicus Hackitus) and the Road Runner as the Trump Runner (Tweetatus Maximus).

The cartoon essentially replaces Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner with House Intelligence Committee chair Adam Schiff and the president, respectively.

Watch:

The only tangible differences between these new characters and their original Looney Tunes counterparts are that Schiff T. Coyote is arguably uglier than the original Wile E. Coyote, and the Trump Runner yelps “tweet tweet” instead of “meep meep.”

Other than for that, the storyline is basically the same, with Schiff T. Coyote unsuccessfully trying over and over again to take the Trump Runner out, first with a boulder fired from the “Catapults of Mueller,” then with “Instant Obstruction Boulders” and finally with an “Impeachment” rocket. In all instances, Schiff T. Coyote fails.

The cartoon is clearly designed to mock Democrats over their endless attempts to dethrone the president. It started with the Russian collusion delusion investigation by former special counsel Robert Mueller. Once that fell apart, Democrats quickly pivoted to “Russiagate 2: Ukrainian Boogaloo,” as some critics call it:

In both cases, Schiff has often been the frontman, whether by peddling since-debunked collusion delusion conspiracy theories nonstop on TV, openly and shamelessly lying to the public about the nature of the president’s call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky or unfairly and unethically acting like an independent counsel.

In short, Schiff has acted like a hotshot, and it appears the cartoon shared by Scavino was designed to remind him that this is far from the case. Rather, he’s a political hack.

But don’t take it from the White House; take it from CNN’s favorite Fox News host, Chris Wallace. On Wednesday, he highlighted Schiff’s history of having “completely misrepresented” the truth, saying, “We’ve seen that a few times coming from Adam Schiff.”

As an example, he pointed to an instance during the second day of the president’s Senate impeachment trial in which Schiff tried to falsely quote acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney to make some BS point about the Trump administration.

“He kept using the line from Mick Mulvaney, ‘Get over it,’ and saying, well are we just going to just get over it?” Wallace said later that afternoon. “Before I interviewed Mulvaney the week of his problematic news conference, I went back and looked at that statement in detail. And that’s not what Mick Mulvaney said at all.”

Surprise, surprise …

“He did say ‘get over it,’ but he was talking specifically about the fact that there is politics in foreign policy and that specifically, that when Barack Obama is conducting his foreign policy, it’s going to have a different political flavor and a different policy agenda than when Donald Trump is — and each president, they’re elected, is fulfilling his mandate,” Wallace continued.

“He wasn’t saying that this kind of quid pro quo, get over it, just accept it. He was talking specifically about the idea of policy and politics in a foreign policy agenda. Quite frankly … he [Schiff] completely misrepresented what Mick Mulvaney said.

Fellow FNC host Martha MacCallum concurred.

“We’ve seen that a few times coming from Adam Schiff, in terms of his reinterpretation of what the president said on his phone call that he kind of rewrote, which the president understandably did not let him forget,” she said.

“And then in that moment with Mick Mulvaney as well. And even sort of the parsing of the actual transcript itself, you know, ‘would you do us a favor,’ and sort of linking that to the actual activity of the request for the actual investigation.”

Listen:

But you won’t hear any of this tough analysis from the liberal media, which has spent all week lavishing praise on their Dear Hero Schiff T. Coyote, aka the Politicus Hackitus.

Observe:

Liars praising liars?

Perhaps THAT should be the subject matter of the White House’s next cartoon.
