The moment came late Thursday at the end of a 16-hour period where senators posed questions to House managers and the president’s defense team. Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), who is running for president, asked a final question giving House managers the opportunity to “provide any other comments the senate would benefit from hearing before we adjourn for the evening.”
Nadler is seen getting up from his seat and making his way to the microphone to give the closing statement, appearing to catch Schiff off guard.
Members of the president’s legal team and Senate staff visible on camera can be seen smiling as the scene unfolded.
Spokespeople for Schiff and Nadler did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Schiff’s pathetic “Jerry, Jerry, Jerry,” as Nadler shouldered by him may go down as one of the funnier moments in this entire snoozefest.
It’s all about face time on the TV for these guys, after all.
Rep. Jerry Nadler was seen in a video rushing past Rep. Adam Schiff to answer a final query after 16 hours of mind-numbing questions from senators.
Nadler appeared to want to beat Schiff to the microphone, almost running him over in his haste to get the last bit of TV time for himself.
Trump saw the video and gleefully shared it.
