& # 39; Another fantasy! & # 39; Trump blows & # 39; pious & # 39; Adam Schiff for hearing & # 39; parody & # 39; of the telephone conversation in Ukraine

& # 39; Another fantasy! & # 39; Donald Trump blows & # 39; pious & # 39; Adam Schiff for whistleblower & # 39; parody & # 39; where he tells fictional president to the Ukrainian counterparty: & # 39; I want you to get dirty on my political opponent & # 39;

Donald Trump returned to Washington with firearms on Thursday afternoon and bumped into a senior democrat for a morning congress where he conducted a dramatic but fictional reading of a controversial telephone conversation in July between the president and his Ukrainian counterpart.

& # 39; Another witch hunt, here we go again. They are Adam Schiff and his crew making up stories and sitting there as devout – whatever you want to call them, & # 39; Trump told reporters on the asphalt at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland.

& # 39; The Democrats are going to lose the election, they know it. That's why they do it, & he said about an increasing drumbeat of hearings and investigations.

Trump responded to what House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff a & # 39; parody & # 39; mentioned the now publicly dissected phone call. Schiff had recited a creative interpretation of the call at the hearing – which had little resemblance to a transcript released Wednesday.

& # 39; This is the essence of what the president says: & # 39; We have been very good to your country, very good. No other country has done as much as we have. But you know what? I don't see much reciprocity here. I hear what you want. I do have a favor that I want from you. And I'm only going to say this seven times, so you better listen ", & Schiff acted.

& # 39; & # 39; I want you to get dirty on my political opponent, you see? A lot of. About this and about that. I'm going to put you in touch with people, not just people. I'm going to put you in contact with the Attorney General of the United States, my Attorney General Bill Barr. He has the full weight of American law enforcement behind him. And I'm going to put you in contact with Rudy. You are going to love him. Trust me, "says Schiff's fictional Trump.

& # 39; & # 39; You know what I'm asking, so I'm just going to say this a few more times, in a few ways. And by the way, don't call me again. I'll call you if you've done what I asked ". & # 39;

While Trump descended through the clouds on Air Force One while the hearing was still going on, he tweeted: & Adam Schiff has no credibility. Another fantasy to hurt the Republican Party! & # 39;

Ohio Republican representative, Mike Turner, later said while asking the star witness, acting director of the national intelligence service Robert Maguire: & while the chairman was talking, I actually had someone who texted me & # 39; at: & # 39; Does he just make this up? & # 39;

& # 39; And yes, yes he was, & # 39; Turner said. & # 39; Because fiction is sometimes better than the actual words. & # 39;

New York Rep. Elise Stefanik mocked Schiff later, quoting a document and saying: & # 39; I'm not going to improvise for parody purposes like the chairman of this committee did. & # 39;

Schiff later grinned through a passive-aggressive walkback and said he had just made a joke.

& # 39; My summary of the President's call was meant to be, at least in part, in parody, & # 39; he announced after a republican complained that he had put false words into the president's mouth.

& # 39; The fact that that is not clear is a separate problem in itself, & # 39; he pricked.
