Donald Trump‘s latest Twitter attack is against California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, where the commander in chief calls him, “little Adam Schitt.”

Trump mocked the congressman with the name in a Sunday tweet, writing it was “so funny” that Schiff was “talking about the fact that Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker was not approved by the Senate, but not mentioning the fact that Bob Mueller (who is highly conflicted) was not approved by the Senate!”
