After hours of impeachment presentation, which came after months of investigations, impeachment ringleader Adam Schiff was robbed of the last word in President Trump's Senate trial after Jerry Nadler hiked up his pants and 'sprinted' to the dais to give closing remarks.
"Jerry, Jerry, Jerry," Schiff says tersely as Nadler makes his run.
Rep. Jerry Nadler got up to get the last word in for the night. Rep. Adam Schiff, the lead impeachment manager, got up and tried to get Nadler's attention: "Jerry. Jerry. Jerry." pic.twitter.com/M5K2OBXoK1— Julio Rosas (@Julio_Rosas11) January 31, 2020
The reactions in the room were priceless:
And the reactions on Twitter were similarly hilarious:

The best part of the “Jerry Jerry Jerry” video is that you know Schiff stayed awake all night practicing his moronic closing argument, but in a nanosecond Nadler waddled faster than he has in 50 years, beat Schiff to the podium, and stole his thunder.— John Cardillo (@johncardillo) January 31, 2020
President Trump, of course, couldn't resist...
Nadler ripped final argument away from Schiff, thinks Shifty did a terrible job. They are fighting big time! https://t.co/L2qTV9pWiL— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 31, 2020
