I appreciate it, I knew what you meant.
I think they should play that video EVERY HOUR and then show the REAL TRANSCRIPT!! EVERY DAMN HOUR!
Schiff was not being facetious, he was reading it to provide the media with material in hopes his words would be widely misinterpreted as real quotes from Trump.
Schiff is my congressman. If youve ever walked around leftist paradise Hollywood and Los Feliz, or spoken with any of the wetbrained, bed wetting busybodies that live here, youd understand how Schiff could be elected to anything beyond the twit youd most like to punch in the face
I don’t give a rat’s rear-end. It is Saturday night, he can go play with his cat.
I appreciate it, I knew what you meant.
What I am posting on this thread are facts.
But you have your facts wrong:
He did that before the transcript was released by Trump.
False. Trump released the transcript Sept 25, Schiff did his parody the next day, September 26. I remember because Id already read the transcript when Schiff did his little performance.
He thought the call was so damning to Trump that he would never release the transcript.
False. (See above)
Schiff was hoping his lying little speech would be believed as factual
False: (see above) also note that he prefaced it by saying it was the essence of what Trump was trying to communicate in the call. Thats not what you say when you are quoting verbatim
The dems lapped it up as accurate which is what Schiff wanted.
False. The Dems say it was a parody - seems like you are the one who took it as a quote.
He punked himself.
I agree with that one!!
BTW, you misquoted MayflowerMadam. She stated that the single camera in the chamber is allowed to focus ONLY on the current speaker. MM was saying this in response to someone who wished to see video of Schiff’s face during the presentation.
You owe a serious apology to MM, because you broke out a whole case of righteous indignation over your own misunderstanding.
Schiff was not being facetious,..
Then why would he preface it with this is the essence of what the president communicates. and then clarify afterwards This is in sum and character what the president was trying to communicate?
You dont say those things when you want it to be taken as a quote.
Besides, he knew the President had just released to the public a transcript of the actual conversation the day before - so he had every reason to expect people would recognize it as a parody.
Its when Schiff spoke before the house and completely exaggerated and lied describing Trumps call.
Here’s how the Democrats are telling their fanbase to libsplain things:
Has anybody ever gone to jail for it that wasn't the victim of a political hit?
I ain't sayin'. Just Sayin'. d;^)
Maybe Schiff never had blood in his body to begin with.
>> but honestly, Schiff was obviously being facetious
Definitely not facetious. He was being a malicious dirtbag.
It wasn’t a roast.
Yup, the jackass attempted to frame the call. And he had support among his deranged peers that expressed the “mafia-styled” intent of the call.
You are wrong on most of that.
Maybe facetious is the wrong word. Of course it wasnt a roast. There was nothing funny about it. It was a parody but with malicious intent.
He was projecting evil motives onto Trump and doing his best to make Trump look bad, by trying to get people to believe that despite Trumps actual words (which many had already read), there were evil thoughts and motives in Trumps head (according to Schiff) and Schiff was acting out his imaginary version of those evil thoughts and motives in a malicious mob boss parody.
What Schiff did was dishonest and despicable, but he obviously wasnt trying to pass it off as an actual quote.
And yes, he is a malicious dirtbag
Your mistake was thinking the transcript hadnt been released yet when Schiff did his stupid mob boss parody of the call - but it had already been released, so your whole argument collapses.
