Adam Schiff just humiliated Scott Pruitt with brilliant tweet over his rampant scandals

- 11.15

The latest Twitter trend is actually straight out of the pages of Mad magazine, which has been rewriting lyrics to popular songs with politically parodic lyrics since the 1950’s.

The trend on Twitter started last year in a sardonic memoriam to Trump’s first 100 days in office, but has picked up again now that we’ve managed to survive an unbelievable 500 days of his administration.

For example, there’s this tweet from Howard B. Altman, who has taken the trend to such an extent that’s he’s written a whole book called “Goodnight, Loon – Poems, Parodies, And Jokes To Survive The Trump Presidency.”

Now, Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA), the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee, has joined the party with this little ditty composed for EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt.

While Schiff could have done a considerably better job on the rhyme scheme (don’t quit your day job to become a lyricist, Congressman), his choice of Pruitt’s favorite things hits the mark perfectly.

Rep. Schiff’s followers on social media quickly took up the mantle.

One commenter even fixed the faulty rhymes for Schiff.

In the era of unending outrage that is the Trump administration, it’s good to have humor to help get us through the day. In that spirit, here are a few more of the best of the song parodies of the Resistance found on Twitter.

As for me, I have a sudden urge to hear a version of the classic Allman Brothers album, “Eat An Impeach.”
