President Trump was at the top of his game tonight in Toledo.
Speaking to a gigantic crowd of supporters who turned out to the Keep America Great rally, Trump addressed Democrat concerns over not being notified about his actions with Iran – particularly Schiff & Pelosi’s complaints that they were not briefed prior to the killing of Soleimani.
Trump ran through an imaginary, hilarious scenario of what briefing them would have looked like before taking a hit at Adam Schiff that sent the crowd roaring in laughter and applause,
“We didn’t have time to call up Nancy, who is not operating with a full deck. No, they want us to call — can you imagine? Calling crooked Adam Schiff?..We’ve got him lined up, Adam. You little pencil-neck. Nine inches. He buys the smallest shirt collar you can get, and it’s loose. Now, come on, Adam.”
President Trump then went on to accuse Schiff of being a “big leaker. He leaks like crazy to CNN,” and argued that if he would have told Schiff about the Soleimani strike, Iran would have found out from media before they could take out the terrorist.

The Washington Examiner has more to say:
President Trump took aim at Rep. Adam Schiff on Thursday, claiming he would have leaked news of airstrikes on Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani to CNN if he had known about it.
"We didn’t have time to call up Nancy, who is not operating with a full deck. No, they want us to call — can you imagine? Calling crooked Adam Schiff?" Trump asked the crowd at an Ohio rally on Thursday before mocking the California Democrat. "We’ve got him lined up, Adam. You little pencil-neck. Nine inches. He buys the smallest shirt collar you can get, and it’s loose. Now, come on, Adam."
The president went on to enact an imaginary conversation where Schiff leaked the news to CNN. "Schiff is a big leaker. He leaks to crazy CNN," Trump said, arguing that Iran would have found out about the strike ahead of time on cable news if he notified Congress.
The Daily Calleradded:
President Donald Trump fired up a Thursday night “Keep America Great” rally crowd when he called Democratic California Rep. Adam Schiff a “little pencil neck.”
Speaking in Toledo, Ohio after the House of Representatives passed a symbolic war powers resolution meant to limit the president’s power to take unilateral action against Iran, Trump laid out a mock scenario whereby he conceivably chooses to ask Congress instead of acting within a window of opportunity.
“Let me go over to Congress,” Trump said, referring to what he might have done instead of ordering the drone strike that killed Iranian General Qasem Soleimani. “Come on over to the White House. Let’s talk about it. When can you make it? ‘Well, I won’t be able to make it today, sir. How about let’s say in a couple days?’ Oh, sure. Come on over.”
Getting back to reality, the president told the crowd that, knowing where Soleimani was, “we had to make a decision.”
“We didn’t have time to call up Nancy, who is not operating with a full deck,” he said. “No, they want us to call — can you imagine? Calling crooked Adam Schiff. He is so crooked. So crooked. Shifty Schiff.”
