Yes, a performance, as in theater, Kabuki Theater that is.
It dawned on me just a few minutes ago, that Schiff is performing. He’s performing, to put it in the old way, for ‘the folks back home’ consumption. I wondered why he’s been so “into” this anti-Trump deal, when this volume of fawning praise for his theatrics lit that lightbulb over the head.
He doesn’t care one way or the other about what Trump did – or didn’t – do. Shifty Schiff is positioning himself for the Senate campaign when Dianne Feinstein either finally decides to retire, or kicks the bucket & dies in office. His sidelining Nadler to take more of the center stage adds confirmation.
Schiff knows that he will face strong opposition from Kevin de León, Eric Swallwell and who knows who else and he believes this theatrical performance will place him at the head of the pack.
I may be all wet, but we will see in 2024 when DiFi’s latest term ends.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer praised House impeachment manager Adam Schiff for a strong delivery as he wrapped up the first day of opening arguments in President Trump’s impeachment trial.
“The managers did just an incredible, incredible job. And they were all good. But particularly Adam Schiff. His closing speech, which I hope many of your viewers saw, is one of the tour de forces that I have seen in my decades here,” Schumer said Wednesday night on MSNBC. “I’d say it’s one of the 10 best speeches I’ve heard.”
