Trump Attacks House Democrats and ‘Weirdo’ Tom Steyer in Late-Night Tweet Storm

Donald Trump spent some late-night “executive time” blasting out a flurry of attacks on House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, billionaire activist Tom Steyer, and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler.

The Democrats’ mounting oversight efforts were clearly on Trump’s mind late Tuesday night, as he posted a series of tweets and retweets that compared Schiff to Joseph McCarthy, attacked Nadler, and ripped Steyer as a “weirdo” without “guts,” with “guts” randomly scare-quoted.

Trump first tweeted, then deleted, a repeat of his earlier “PRESIDENTIAL HARASSMENT” tweet, this time including a clip of Nadler, and lowercase lettering:

Instead, Trump simply retweeted the tweet that contained the clip, and moved on to retweeting a Laura Ingraham show promo:


He then retweeted son Don Jr.’s tweet about Christopher Steele‘s decision to cancel an upcoming public appearance:

Trump then quote-tweeted Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) lashing out at Steyer, and added “Weirdo Tom Steyer doesn’t have the ‘guts’ or money to run for President. He’s all talk!”

Trump’s tantrum came shortly after CNN reported that Trump pressured White House officials to grant Ivanka Trump’s security clearance.
