Gee, I wonder what inspired this?

A Western New York man was arrested Wednesday on charges that he threatened to kill Rep. Adam Schiff and Sen. Chuck Schumer.
Salvatore Lippa, 57, of Greece, New York, was charged with threatening to assault and murder a federal official on account of the performance of their official duties.
According to the criminal complaint, on Jan. 23, Schiff’s Washington, D.C., office received a threatening voicemail that included a death threat.
Lippa started the threatening message by calling the congressman “Schiff, Shifty Schiff,” invoking the nickname used by President Donald Trump for Schiff, the lead House manager during Trump’s impeachment trial.
Almost two weeks later, on Feb. 4, Schumer received a threatening voicemail at his New York office that also contained a death threat.
After his arrest, Lippa admitted that he was upset about the impeachment hearings.
So to be clear this guy was so incensed that Trump was being held accountable for his actions that he felt it appropriate to threaten the life of a Washington lawmaker.
He even used the derogatory nickname dreamed up by his hero.
But hey, this is just another day in Donald Trump’s America.
