As the 2020 presidential election gets closer and closer, various candidates are staking their claims and going after the other. This evidenced itself yesterday when President Trump’s official campaign team tweeted out an image of “Little Pencil-Neck Adam Schiff” on a light blue shirt, reports The Daily Caller News Foundation.
Everything You Need to Know
The tweet posted by Official Team Trump reads as follows:
Little Pencil-Neck Adam Schiff
He spent two years knowingly and unlawfully lying and leaking. He should be forced to resign from Congress!
Everyone should buy a Pencil-Neck Adam Schiff shirt today!
— Team Trump (Text TRUMP to 88022) (@TeamTrump) March 29, 2019
As one might imagine, this prompted a series of strong reactions from Americans on both sides of the aisle. Conservatives overwhelmingly praised Trump while others on the left asserted that the tweet hit a new low in politics. Some of the responses to the Official Team Trump tweet read as follows:
Team Trump is savage! 🤣🙌🏻🇺🇸

However, other Americans were less amused by the apparently controversial design:
This is beneath the office of President…but so many things are these days.

The Hypocrisy of the Outrage
It’s truly interesting to witness some of the phony moral outrage which comes from many people on the left. Where is the outrage when the president is made fun of in memes? The problem with the outrage is that it’s directed at Trump and his team regardless of what is said or done.
When the president makes positive statements and acknowledges holidays, events and individuals, he’s branded as insincere or simply acting for political gain. When Trump strikes back at his opponents, critics claim that he’s inappropriate and acting in a manner which is beneath the office of the president.
It’s gotten to be beyond old. Outrage holds no merit or value when it’s always directed at someone. It loses its significance. The most interesting thing of all is that the left has failed to realize this after everything that happened in 2016. Quite frankly, the manner in which they are behaving is going to cost them another election.
