‘Jerry, Jerry, Jerry’: Nadler steals last word from frustrated Schiff

When House impeachment managers were asked Thursday night to give a closing argument, lead manager Rep. Adam Schiff rose from his seat, but Rep. Jerry Nadler beat him to the well of the Senate as the California Democrat called out “Jerry, Jerry, Jerry.”

Senate staffers seated above the well covered their faces in an attempt to hide their bemusement while the Trump team also appeared to enjoy the spectacle.

The question from Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., a Democratic presidential candidate, and several colleagues was: “Could you please respond to the question just given by the president’s counsel, and provide any other comments the Senate would benefit from hearing, before we adjourn for the evening?”

See video of the incident:

Nadler, who opened the trial this week by berating the senators, apparently had been demoted Thursday by Schiff. Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y., was seated next to the lead manager and had been given more speaking time than Nadler.

The Trump campaign war room had fun with the incident:
