Rep. Mike Quigley (D-Ill.) on Monday criticized President Trump for resorting to "juvenile name-calling" by attacking Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) as "little Adam Schitt."

"I feel like I’m back in seventh grade here, where we have juvenile name-calling. This is important stuff. We’re talking about protecting the rule of law, and the best the president can do is start calling people names," Quigley, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, said on CNN's "New Day."

With childish antics like this, I fail to see how anyone can continue to respect this character.

I'd say that the majority of politicians in DC act like 7th Graders, but that may insult many 7th Graders.

IMHO, both Schiff and Trump, when it comes to honesty and integrity, are in the same outhouse hole in DC. Their names tend to allow for comparisons because of that, with Trump sounding like Rump, and Schiff sounds like what Trump wrote.

Both names are funny in their own way. And the Trump one is used here and all over the internet continually - and for good reason.

Red:
...And what is the time for a move like Trump's "tweak" of the Representative's, or anyone else's, name?
  • Whatever time it is before one reaches the age of 11.....And the reason that's time is because it's in due time for one's parents to wash one's mouth out with soap and take a switch and make one's little ass smart.

You’re minimizing and conflating. Trump, unprovoked, hurled the childish insult.. Schiff isn’t President of the United States and leader of the free world, Trump is, and whatever he says, everyone listens to (unfortunately for all of us). He is a juvenile septuagenarian and an embarrassment to our country.

Trump needs to better than this. He needs better instincts. Theres a time and place for things. He chose wrong here.
He needs a permanent time out ..... of the White House.

Trump can dish it out but can't take it when someone makes a joke of him.

The most important man in the world and he would come all unglued over something that Rosie O'Donnell said. If wasn't for Trump, Rosie would have been a forgotten celeb.

Would love to hear a comedian make fun of his wife's attempt to speak English just to watch him whip himself in a frenzy. He is so predictable.

This is simple, NONE of our elected officials should indulge in callow namecalling. It doesn’t matter if you are a county executive or POTUS. That said, it’s beneath the office of the Presidency to make these type of remarks.

Totally agree. trump loves to dish it out but goes berserk when anyone criticises him. He has attacked John McCain several times and his tantrums at the media is the sort of behaviour I'd expect from a 4 year old.

I can't ever think of a time nor a place for the most powerful man in the world to act like a junior high school punk, which is exactly what Trump did here.

Yea. If only somehow his supporters could have been made aware in the primaries or in the election that they were electing such a childish moron.

This isn't on Trump. He insulted Cruz's wife's appearance, he insulted Carly Fiorina's appearance, he insisted that Obama was Kenyan for the better half of a decade, he trashed John McCain's service to the country, he mocked a disabled reporter, tried to smear Cruz's father by trying to suggest he was assisting the killing of JFK, called the people of Iowa stupid because they voted for Carson instead of him etc. And this was just during the Primary. Trump supporters knew who he was before they bent over and let him stick it in. They don't get to act surprised or act like they weren't expecting this. They absolutely hated america and wanted to elect Trump in the same way a man would date an absolute whore to get back at his ex. And the essentially said this throughout the election. Many voted for him just because they hated Clinton more. Some voted for him as a **** you to this big grand conspiracy theory that they've concocted in their heads. The democrats and almost the entire republican party are trying to give america away to the globalist conspiracy or whatever the **** Alex Jones conspiracy of choice that they think.

There is a reason that they are willing to throw gold star families, POW's (WTF!?) fellow republicans, Veterans that he's too busy to visit, the FBI, the DOJ, judges, the highly respected former admiral that planned and executed the Bin Laden raid (again, WTF!?), former republican presidents, the CIA, people that leave the administration, 2 highly respected former FBI heads (and too numerous to list others), the entirety of the free press, the constitution all under the bus anytime it is useful.

Calling him "Adam Schitt" literally doesn't even crack the top 100 most offensive, unamerican, unpatriotic things that this gigantic buffoon has done.

Sure i will grant you most of what you said with one big BUT,

Regardless of those past comments he lwas still the best choice of the options presented. I dont see clinton as a leader where as Trump is. Trump has warts too of course but he is better for the country than she would of been. Im not saying she would of been terrible either. Trump was the better option is all.

The luatics on the left want to grandstand about this, be my guest. The fact is that schiff has been cruel toward the president and i have no sympathy for him. I can think of worse things he deserves to be called. That said, Trump should chose his battles better. We all know what kind of peron schiff is and sometimes you can say more with what you dont say than with what you do. This ws one of those moments. Trump needs to learn that he does not need to counter all of the ridiclious attacks on him to win the war.

If i could Give Trump any advice i would tell him to keep his powder dry for the next 2 years while the democrats embrass themselves in epic porportions with all their grandstanding investigations.

We will never ever agree on if he was the best of the options, but if you show me a person who says "I didn't want Trump, voted for someone else in the primary, but had to vote for him against Hillary" then I would disagree strongly but at least can understand their reasoning. I'm more referring to the people who love him and say that he is doing exactly what they elected him to do.

Also, I think you should be very aware that with all of Trumps faults, it's extremely unlikely that he hasn't done some illegal or at least highly unethical stuff while running for office or while in office. If you look at his business career it's just littered with evidence of impropriety. And nothing that he's done so far shows that these types of things stopped. You need only look at all of the lies regarding the russia investigation, the payments to porn stars and models, paying out 25 million for defrauding americans with a fake university, countless of his administration officials being under ethics investigations for misuse of tax dollars and illegal payments etc. It just never seems to stop. The idea that the democrats are just making all of these things up and pretending that they are a big deal is border line delusional I hate to say.

To be fair the T is next to the F.

I think Trump covfefed it up and then let it go after the fact.

Democrats are still confused as to what was the original intent.

Those of us with brains filled in coverage immediately.

It must be exhausting to be so easily triggered 24/7.

Youre right that we wont agree on who the better candidate was. I offered it because you catagorized those that voted for him into one of two catagories. I fit into neither.

I voted cruz in the primary but hind site being 20/20 i think i was wrong about him. I like rand paul and could stomache rubio too. Any of them could of taken my vote. I was not sold on trump.

He had some really inappropiate moments in the primary that turned me off. As you pointed out.

When we got to the general i started out a johnson voter. I voted for him last cycle. I slowly came around to Trump because contrary to the media narrative. Trump sold a positive message. He offered a positive vision. He won my vote. Neither clinton or johnson did.

Now if you ask me if i suspect he has skelitons in his closet. I would be surprised if he diddnt. I dont think his are any worse than the rest of them but i dont think he is a saint either.

As far as im concerned anyone who runs is crooked. You dont spend a $billion to win a job that pays 400k, unless theres another payoff.

Its not saying fu to dems or to miniorities, its about the person who i believee will deliver the best results. Imo,, thats djt.

You are apparently just barely outside of one of my categories. They were broad but still mostly accurate.

(In bold) That's just false. No one is spending a billion of their own money. They are only raising the money in order to spend it on the election. If they weren't running they wouldn't get the money. Also, americans that think that absolutely none of the politicians are honest to god trying to do what they think is in the best interest of the country are part of the reason why this country will never live up to it's history. Everything is rigged and crooked right from the start, from the branches to the roots. It's essentially not even worth saving. It's pathetic that people actually think that.

Name calling is only allowed to go one way. They have no problem with Democrat government officials calling Republicans every name in the book. Leftists are fine with that, either because they are so stupid that they believe it or are so dishonest they do not care.

Adam Schiff's "cruelty" to the president was pointing out that Nunes was closing down the House investigation, and working in cahoots with the White House. I wonder why no sympathy for a Congressman actually doing his job.

Wonder how long Trump has been holding back his little poop joke? A very sick, and dangerous man, elected by people, who somehow see some "leadership" material. Leader in what? Lock her up chants?

Schiff has been claiming lots of bad stuff for months now yet has not produced any evidence. If trump were a private citizen it would be defimation.

But hey you got a grudge against trump so its all good right.

I don't believe you have actually listened to Adam Schiff, who has spoken about how the committee run by Nunes was effectively shut down by Nunes and the WH.

Did you enjoy Trump's potty joke?

Rep. Mike Quigley (D-Ill.) on Monday criticized President Trump for resorting to "juvenile name-calling" by attacking Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) as "little Adam Schitt."

"I feel like I’m back in seventh grade here, where we have juvenile name-calling. This is important stuff. We’re talking about protecting the rule of law, and the best the president can do is start calling people names," Quigley, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, said on CNN's "New Day."
==============================================
With childish antics like this, I fail to see how anyone can continue to respect this character.

A majority of Americans don't, but his cult can't get enough of his name calling, pouting and hissyfits. And they expect someone like that to be respected??

I just read a post today from someone complaining about no one respecting Trump. How much respect does he give the office of the Presidency, our cherished institutions, our military, our national heroes, non-whites, etc, etc, etc...

Clearly they've never heard that what goes around, comes around...

That's basically just a tired old talking point. Special interests only seem to be a bad thing when they disagree with the person doing the complaining. Money in politics is a problem, but it doesn't mean everyone is crooked.
