Adam Schiff just got humiliated. In the worst possible way. For a grandstanding politician and inveterate leaker, the only fate worse than death is to be ignored, forgotten, unknown.
Adam craves the spotlight and has carefully crafted a media image that he believes will propel him to higher office.
But it is not working. The contestants on a recent episode of Jeopardy – the show with the smartest people in America – were asked to identify Adam.
Not one knew who in the hell he was and they showed his picture too. In short, it an epic dose of karma, Schiff is already forgotten.
Not one contestant on Wednesday’s edition of Jeopardy! managed to identify Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) after being asked to name the chair the House Intelligence Committee and leader of the partisan impeachment campaign against president Donald Trump.
Schiff was the correct answer to a $12,000 category marked “U.S. Representatives.” Contestants were provided with a photo of Schiff and the following clue: “One-fifty-third of California’s House delegation is this House Intelligence Committee chairman.”
None of the three contestants knew the answer.
Episodes of Jeopardy!, a televisioned quiz show where contestants compete for cash prizes, are usually filmed three months in advance. This means that Wednesday night’s episode would likely have been filmed around October when Schiff and other House Democrats were opening impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump.
The episode was broadcast on the same day Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi sent impeachment articles to the Senate for trial, appointing Schiff as Impeachment Manager.
