House Democrats threw a hissy-fit of enormous proportions on Wednesday after Rep. Adam Schiff, a California Democrat, was censured by the House — which is under the control of the Republican Party — after he made false claims concerning former President Donald Trump. For those that might not know, censure is the highest level of disapproval of a member’s personal conduct you can get underneath being expelled.
“The vote on the resolution, brought by Republican Rep. Anna Paulina Luna of Florida, was 213-209, according to Axios,” the Western Journal said. “The five GOP members of the House Ethics Committee, which under the resolution will now consider Schiff’s conduct, voted ‘present,’ as did Republican Rep. Ken Buck of Colorado.”
Every single Democrat in the House was against Schiff being censured. And, true to form, liberals took to the House floor and made fools of themselves by acting like a bunch of babies with poopy diapers.
“House Speaker Kevin McCarthy was able to read only part of the censure resolution aloud before Democratic heckling and shouting interrupted him to the point where he left the chamber, according to The Associated Press,” the report continued.
Greg Price, a member of the Freedom Caucus Network took to Twitter where he described the scene on the floor of the House, saying, “Democrats throw a 5 minute temper tantrum in the well of the House chamber as the vote to censure Adam Schiff passes, yelling ‘shame’ at Kevin McCarthy and refusing to allow him to finish reading the resolution.”
I mean, if you’re going to yell the word “shame” at someone, shouldn’t it be Schiff? The man lied, repeatedly, about Trump for years, trying to paint him up as a villain who worked with Russia to steal an election. If he knowingly spread false information, that means he set about to slander a person’s reputation. How is that behavior not shameful? The morality of the left is so screwy I highly doubt even they can untangle the mess.

Along with all of that, Democrats also called the Speaker of the House a “spiteful coward” and “weak.” Everyone’s favorite brain-dead New York Democrat, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, wants to see McCarthy kicked out of his current position.
When former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was given an opportunity to comment, she said the vote was a “puppet show” and the former president is the “puppeteer.”
“You look miserable. You look miserable,” the California Democrat said to Luna.

“As chair of the House Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff launched an all out political campaign built on baseless distortions against a sitting U.S. president at the expense of every single citizen in this country and the honor of the House of Representatives,” Luna went on to say, according to a report from CBS News.
She then referred to the vote to censure Schiff as being a choice between “right and wrong.”
“This is not a partisan act. This is not a conservative-versus-liberal vote. This is a clear vote between right and wrong, and I urge you to do the right thing,” she stated, going on to add, “run[ning] away from this opportunity to hold this man accountable” would “betray the people who trusted us and sent us here [to Congress] to do the right thing.”

The resolution itself went on to say that the California Democrat “has spread false accusations that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.”
“On March 20, 2017, Representative Schiff perpetuated false allegations from the Steele Dossier accusing numerous Trump associates of colluding with Russia into the Congressional Record,” the resolution continued.
“As ranking minority member and Chairman of the Intelligence Committee, Representative Schiff behaved dishonestly and dishonorably on many other occasions, including by publicly, falsely denying that his staff communicated with a whistleblower to launch the first impeachment of President Trump,” the resolution added.
