MSNBC’s Joy Reid and U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff were slammed over their outrageous hypocrisy on the issue of investigating an incoming president.
The two came under fire on social media for their stunning lack of self-awareness when they warned Republicans about any plans they may have to continue investigations of Democratic nominee Joe Biden and his family if he officially becomes the next president.
“Both House and Senate Republicans have made it clear that when … the normal order resumes, when Congress is back in session, and at work, they’re not interested in doing any work that involves legislating or helping people during this awful pandemic,” Reid said to Schiff on Thursday.
“But what they want to focus on is investigating. They want to go after Hunter Biden, still. They want to go after the investigations that led to impeachment,” she complained. “Is this what we’re going to have to sit through for the next four years, Republicans just doing investigations and refusing to legislate?”

Schiff, who spent the last few years investigating anything and everything he could on President Trump as he pushed the Russia collusion probe and made one after another baseless claim against him, lamented that “we might” have to endure investigations by the GOP.
“This wouldn’t be going on right now, this obstruction of the transition wouldn’t be going on if the Republicans weren’t allowing it to go on,” the House Intelligence Committee chairman told Reid.
“It is just tearing down our democracy,” Schiff said with a straight face. “I do expect, in the new Congress, that yes, they’ll continue to try to go after Joe Biden, delegitimize Joe Biden. They won’t be interested in getting things done.”
As always, the rules are different depending on the party and Democrats who harassed Trump and launched efforts against him before he was even elected are now crying foul if Republicans continue probes of legitimate concerns of corruption by Biden and members of his family.
Twitter users unloaded on the double standards.
“It must be wonderful to live without any sense of irony whatsoever,” one person tweeted.
“This is less self-aware than someone shotgunning a beer with a Marlboro hanging out of their mouth lecturing a kid about how only idiots drink and smoke,” Townhall columnist Derek Hunter wrote on Twitter.
“Wow @JoyAnnReid and @AdamSchiff win for biggest hypocrites of the day,” another user tweeted.

Can you say double standard? Do they even hear themselves talk? They have been brainwashed by their own talking points.

I mean, it would be totally unprecedented if a party spent the next 4 years crying about election fraud and then impeached the president over threatening to withhold aid to Ukraine in exchange for something involving one of their prosecutors…. right?

The funniest part, outside of the massive amounts of hypocrisy, is having Adam Schiff’s name and the word “intelligence” on screen, at the same time!
