MAGA Rep. Matt Gaetz Suggests a New Pronoun For Adam Schiff Now That He’s Off the Intel Committee

Representative Matt Gaetz took a jab at his colleague Adam Schiff, offering a new pronoun suggestion after the latter was officially rejected to serve on the House Intelligence Committee.

As The Political Insider reported earlier this week, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy formally rejected a last-ditch bid for Democrats Eric Swalwell and Schiff to serve on the Intel Committee.

McCarthy stated that “integrity matters more” and that his decision was made “in order to maintain a standard worthy of this committee’s responsibilities.”

Swalwell had a documented relationship with a Chinese spy, whilst Schiff has been a consistent and notorious leaker of classified information meant to convey false information about the previous President.

Gaetz Mocks Schiff With New Pronoun Suggestion

While Schiff is an obvious national security threat necessitating his removal from the Intel Committee – a very serious matter – Gaetz couldn’t help but poke just a little bit of fun at the Democrat lawmaker.

A Twitter user known as @JoeyFromPhilly, who lists himself as a political strategist and former radio host, openly wondered: “What are Adam Schiff’s pronouns?”

Gaetz responded simply – “Removed.”

Granted, it doesn’t really make all that much sense, what with the lack of a corresponding pronoun as most confused liberals put in their profile, but any jab at Adam Schiff is worth repeating.

But it wasn’t even the best answer.

Several people took a shot at answering @JoeyFromPhilly, delivering such gems as “Gas/Lighter,” “Buh/Bye,” “Bug/Eyes,” and the ever-popular, “Pencil/Neck.”

Remember the PENCIL Act?

The “Pencil/Neck” pronouns are a reference to the nickname given to Schiff by former President Donald Trump, who once dubbed him “little pencil neck Adam Schiff.”

Trump told supporters at a rally in 2019 that “he’s got the smallest, thinnest neck I’ve ever seen. He is not a long-ball hitter.”

Gaetz used the insult that year when introducing a resolution calling for the resignation of then-House Intelligence Committee Chairman Schiff over his handling of the Russian collusion hoax.

The MAGA Republican trolled Schiff in epic fashion, titling the proposed bill the “Preventing Extreme Negligence with Classified Information Licenses Resolution” – or “Pencil Act.”

Gaetz at the time referenced the fact that Schiff “lied and said that there was actual evidence of collusion” between Russia and the Trump campaign.

The PENCIL Act never led to any action while Republicans were in the minority, of course. 

Now that they have the majority, Speaker Kevin McCarthy took matters into his own hands. Schiff is no longer a threat to the nation by serving on the Intel Committee.

Still, he maintains both Schiff and Swalwell will be considered for roles on other panels.

“Those members will have other committees, but the Intel Committee is different,” McCarthy explained. “The intel Committee’s responsibility is national security to America.”

  • Schiff, the "leaker of information to ..." C'mon, people, call it like it is. Adam Schiff is a bloddy LIAR!!

  • Adam Schiff is a gross liar in a den of liars, unprincipled and that definitely qualifies him to be a democrat senator from California, New York, New Jersey or Massachusetts. That's only because they're use to that quality of elected official.

    • You are being FAR too kind - Tell it like it is ! ;) Niether are of more value to the Human Race than a single sperm from an extinct reptile.
