A top White House spokesman invoked the 1987 Mel Brooks classic Spaceballs in laying out just how flimsy lead impeachment manager Adam Schiffs, D-Calif., impeachment case is against President Trump.
Deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley told The Story on Friday that the House Democrats case against Trump in which they alleged abuse of power in the form of the president trying to personally benefit through foreign policy with Ukraine effectively has no first-hand witnesses.
Democrats, he said, are trying to splice it together [and] pass it off as real. [ ]
Its all your fathers brothers cousins nephews former roommate says this about the president, he remarked, quoting Rick Moranis character from the cult-classic spoof on Star Wars.

Never engage Ludicrous Drive when Nadler is on the bridge! Messy.
Nadler has to be Pizza the Hut in this context.
The left on Twitter is making out Schiff like he is Clarence Darrow and John Adams rolled into one. One comment even read that he completely destroyed Trumps legal team.
I knew it. Im surrounded by assholes!
I break out laughing at just the mention of that movie.
Darrow I could believe, given his proclivities.
But never John Adams, who is famous for saying “(o)ur Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people”, something that makes the godless Dems puke.
I think the best scene in that movie is when they’re standing there watching themselves on the TV up until the moment they’re standing there watching themselves. Hilarious!
We are combing the desert sir! Hey you guys found anything? Man we aint found Schiiiift! :)
Impeachment charges all wrong.
Should have been Orange man bad.
Vote to acquit so they can bring another.
Democrats want to call more hearsay witnesses like John Bolton who wasnt even present at the famous July 25th phone call.
Thats the sum of their entire case weve heard this week - every one but the President making assumptions about him not borne out by the evidence.
And they still havent managed to tie him in to ONE crime, which it should be added, is missing from BOTH articles of impeachment.
If the House managers had proof of the Presidents guilt, it would be apparent to everyone.
Today, the White Houses Dream Team begins taking their ridiculous contrived case apart.
Schiff looks a little like Mel Brooks playing with the paddle and rubber ball in Blazing Saddles. They could call his impeachment show Blazing Idiot.
Do what again? Fulfill the duties of his office? Abuse of power, indeed.
Had no idea a perfectly innocent phone call would become treated as a high crime in America.
This is why the Democrats want the President tossed out of office, because they think Trump solicited Zelenskys consent to his corrupt scheme.
Which it should be added, hurt absolutely no one. This is the Seinfeld impeachment over nothing. Go figure.
Whats really hilarious is the Democrat obsession with the welfare of a far away country while theyve overlooked the fact Trumps actions here at home have improved the welfare of Americans.
Upon reflection, they have it exactly backwards because whatever Trump may or may not have done on Ukraine, it has had zero effect upon every person living in this country.
No American has been harmed or killed over Ukraine. Not even Joe Biden on whose behalf Democrats have attempted to run interference.
Thats a fact and seeking political advantage in an election is neither a crime nor an impeachable offense. They all do it.
Including the Democrats who themselves are guilty of what they charge Trump with doing, this week. Geez.
