President Trump brought down the house at the annual Turkey pardon event at the White House by mocking the hapless Adam Schiff.
Schiff has turned the gavel over to Jerry Nadler on the impeachment front and if you thought Schiff was bad, wait for Nadler.
Nadler is a famous hack on many levels and Trump has had his number for years – all the way back to their New York days.
Trump also took a few shots at the media.
“Thankfully Bread and Butter have been specially raised by the Jacksons to remain calm under any condition, which is good, because they’ve been subpoenaed to testify in Adam Schiff’s basement on Thursday.”
“It seems the Democrats are accusing me of being too soft on Turkey. At least I’ve actually met them, unlike most of the other witnesses.”
“I expect this pardon will be a very popular one with the media. After all, turkeys are closely related to vultures. I don’t know if I like that line, but there is a little truth to it.”
Last year, according to USA Today, Trump also fired off some jokes:
At last year’s event, held less than a month after Democrats won control of the U.S. House in the congressional elections, Trump cracked wise about the opposition’s desire to investigate him.
“Even though Peas and Carrots have received a presidential pardon, I have warned them that House Democrats are likely to issue them both subpoenas,” he said.
Trump also joked about his defeats in lawsuits, telling last year’s turkeys: “Unfortunately, I can’t guarantee that your pardons won’t be enjoined by the Ninth Circuit … Always happens.”
In 2017, his first turkey pardoning as president, Trump joked that, while seeking to reverse many of the actions taken by predecessor Barack Obama, “I have been informed by the White House Counsel’s Office that Tater and Tot’s pardons cannot, under any circumstances, be revoked … So, Tater and Tot, you can rest easy.”
