This morning we learned what President Trump‘s nickname for Congressman Adam Schiff is.
Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, has been making a number of TV appearances recently talking about the ongoing Russia investigations, and the President has noticed:
Sleazy Adam Schiff, the totally biased Congressman looking into "Russia," spends all of his time on television pushing the Dem loss excuse!

This tweet came minutes after Fox News ran a segment that showed one of Schiff’s TV appearances.
Schiff himself responded by invoking President Trump’s own TV habits:
With respect Mr. President, the problem is how often you watch TV, and that your comments and actions are beneath the dignity of the office. https://t.co/NvZydYbnyW

Earlier this month, when the President claimed in a tweet that he has “little time for watching TV,” Schiff responded in a mocking tweet:
Which is most likely true:
1) WH is functioning perfectly,
2) @POTUS watches little TV, or
3) Moon is made of cheese.
That's right, #3. https://t.co/5LTIc77kJF
