Adam Schiff is the congressman of Hollywood, and in Hollywood, he can do no wrong as he starts a war on President Donald Trump. For verification, take a look at the slobbery interview given by ABC late-night host Jimmy Kimmel on Feb. 24. Several times, Kimmel created the point that Schiff is “our local congressman” and has an office “right down the block” on Hollywood Boulevard.
After some pleasantries concerning how Schiff gets stopped on the streets by (mostly) admiring citizens, the discussion turned to President Trump. Kimmel ran a clip where Trump was adamant Schiff be researched for having leaked information on a classified briefing on Russian interference in the 2020 election to the newspapers. Kimmel, who’s no lawyer, stated absolutely nothing concerning it being illegal to express classified information, and he undoubtedly didn’t inquire Schiff to refuse he had leaked classified details.
The newspapers disdained Trump’s allegation as being “without evidence,” which is very simple once they hold their sources anonymous.
Kimmel acted surprised. “Who is ‘they’ that he wants … to do an investigation of you? Would this be your fellow congressmen?” Schiff stated: “No, it’s much more malicious than that. He wants the Justice Department — his hand-picked hack at the attorney general’s office, Bill Barr — to investigate his political enemies.”
Kimmel responded, “Shouldn’t everyone, regardless of their party, be very troubled by this?” Schiff said, “Absolutely.”
When Sen. Martha McSally calls a CNN reporter a “hack,” the entire media elite is outraged, but when Schiff calls the attorney general a “hack,” everybody simply nods and giggles. Kimmel, who described the word “hack,” insisted that Schiff’s partisan behavior be defended “regardless of … party.”
Kimmel desired the Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee to be outraged. They were — at the leaks from people still wanting to declare that there is some grand Russian-collusion structure. Schiff brought up the name of ranking member Devin Nunes, and Kimmel pounced.
“Devin Nunes … for whatever reason, just kind of came out of nowhere, and really has devoted his life to protecting Donald Trump, for reasons that are unknown to me,” he stated, as if Nunes hasn’t been in Congress since 2003 — in other words, as long as “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”
Kimmel added: “I don’t know if he’s dumb if he’s evil if he’s some combination of the two. I’m pretty sure he’s dumb. I won’t speak to evil. But what’s going on there?”
This is the common separation for liberals when it comes to conservatives: Conservatives are either dumb (liberal take on former Vice President Dan Quayle) or evil (liberal take on former House Speaker Newt Gingrich). Jimmy Kimmel never graduated from college, but he can play to the gallery and make-believe the Republicans are idiots or villains. He’s a comedian, so he’s the wisest guy in the room.
