Representative Adam Schiff is calling out Trump for his anti-Semitic remarks.
“It’s pretty rich to watch the president tweet about anti-Semitism yesterday. This is an issue with which he has no standing,” he said. “This is the same guy who said there were good people on both sides of the neo-Nazi march in Charlottesville, and he’s made other comments that have been equally anti-Semitic tropes.”
Schiff says Trump’s comments about him have been “all over the map” and generally “childish.”
“It’s an astonishing thing that all around America parents have to tell their kids, do not behave like the President of the United States. Do not speak like the president, do not use words like the president, do not bully like the president,” he said. “The president is now an example but an example of what young people are taught not to do.”
Schiff doesn’t believe the president’s animus will change as long as he is in office, because he feeds off of it.
“I don’t think it was any surprise that he gave this two-hour endless speech before CPAC—Hugging the American flag— I loved Colbert’s comments that that flag was the first flag in U.S. history to volunteer to be burned,” he joked.
