Adam Schiff found out the hard way what happens when you attack Tucker Carlson

”Never attack a man who buys his ink by the barrel” is an old cliché that politicians too often forget.

Now they should add to this idea, the internet never forgets.

Adam Schiff just forgot both of these truisms when he took a shot at Tucker Carlson, and he just realized he made a huge mistake.

Leftist politicians in recent years have taken to seeing Russian boogeymen behind every tree.

When Hillary Clinton suffered a humiliating defeat in her 2016 Presidential bid, the only fair reading of the situation would be to say that she short-circuited a bit.

Accepting the blame for losing to Donald Trump, of all people, was evidently too much to bear.

She and her political cronies concocted a scheme to blame Trump’s victory on Russian collusion.

Allegations were even made from leftists that Trump was somehow a Kremlin stooge.

Despite Democrat high hopes and after untold millions of taxpayer dollars were spent, Special Counsel Robert Mueller found there was no collusion with Russia.

Nonetheless, on the political Left, the blame for every failure or inconvenience was directed in one place.

Carlson: We don’t have to agree with Putin but maybe hear his side?

Naturally, when former Fox News host Tucker Carlson decided to interview Russian President Vladimir Putin, he was attacked using the same labels applied to Trump seven years ago.

Carlson explained his reasoning for the interview in detail.

He argued “it’s our job” [as journalists] to talk to Putin.

In his estimation, Americans “are not informed” about the war in Ukraine and are “paying for much of it in ways they might not fully yet perceive.”

Carlson frequently criticized the seemingly unending flow of taxpayer money to the eastern European nation on his show on X, arguing that the tens of billions of dollars could be better spent addressing problems in the United States, such as the fentanyl crisis and border security.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) has been one of the more prolific peddlers of the Russian collusion hoax.

Schiff was censured by Congress for his repeated false statements claiming he had evidence of Russia collusion, which he never produced.

The censure resolution said he “purposely deceived his Committee, Congress, and the American people.”

When Schiff got the news of Carlson’s interview with the Russian leader, he evidently couldn’t help himself.

Schiff thought he had a real zinger when he posted on X, “There are idiots. And useful idiots. And really useful idiots. And Tucker Carlson.”

But the discredited Democrat would have been better-served simply keeping his mouth shut.

Internet to Schiff: You’re a liar and dimmer than you think you are

User Simply4Truth wrote, “This is you, right?” and then highlighted Schiff’s statement, “Clearly, the origins of this whole smear [Hunter Biden laptop] are from the Kremlin.”

That one aged particularly poorly as it was recently confirmed that the laptop was indeed the property of Joe Biden’s ne’er do well son.

Another brought up the time when Schiff was punked by Russian pranksters because he was a little too eager at the prospect of getting compromising pictures of Donald Trump.

James T wrote, “There are liars and there are liars who’ve been censured by the House for lying to Americans.”

In the end, the whole episode just underscores the unseriousness of Adam Schiff.

He’s preaching to the Democrat choir, but will that be enough for his own comrades in November?

All available polling suggests the answer is nyet.
