>> but honestly, Schiff was obviously being facetious
Definitely not facetious. He was being a malicious dirtbag.
It wasn’t a roast.
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
