Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, told “Real Time” host Bill Maher he was given the perfect comeback for when President Trump belittles him on Twitter.
Schiff recently found himself on President Trump’s ever-growing list of politicians he has christened with a demeaning, childish nickname in a tweet, calling him “Little Adam Schiff, who is desperate to run for higher office” and “one of the biggest liars and leakers in Washington.”
Although Schiff had a humorous and equally as taunting comeback for the President, a colleague of the Congressman’s had a suggestion that was much more to the point.

“One of my colleagues had a suggestion for how I ought to respond on Twitter to the president’s attacks, which I didn’t take because it was much more ‘Bill Maher’ then ‘Adam Schiff,’” the Congressman from California told Maher.
“He said I should write back, ‘Dear Mr. President, when you go low, we go high. Go screw yourself.’”

Maher had a better suggestion for dealing with the POTUS: “When they go low, we get high.”
“ That’s a true Bill Maher answer,” Schiff laughed.
