Schiff May Be Facing a Challenge for His Seat From Dr. Drew!

As the popularity of Adam “Shifty” Schiff wanes, even by members of his own party, the Representative from California may be facing an unexpected challenger for his Congressional Seat – TV personality, “Dr. Drew.”

Addiction expert and reality show star Dr. Drew Pinsky is reportedly mulling a congressional run and is considering mounting a bid against his current congressman, who happens to be Schiff.

Pinsky, who has been an outspoken commentator on homelessness and the opioid crisis, recently told The Hill that seeing the impeachment hearings on television increased his desire to get involved in the political process.

“I was watching all the impeachment proceedings and I was going, ‘Oh my God, our Congress is tied up and we’re dying out here in California. What are these people doing?’ ”

Pinsky, 61, lamented the lack of action from Schiff, specifically with regard to the issues facing the homeless in the state of California. “I wake up every day and drive through this town and I am morally moved where I feel like I have to do something,” he said. “We have people literally dying in our streets.”

During an appearance on “Fox & Friends” just before the end of last year, Pinsky said the homelessness crisis is not limited to just housing issues and has more to do with drug use and mental health issues.

“The ideology is — this is a housing crisis. Period. End of story. It’s income inequality. [But] it’s not. It is a mental health crisis,” he said. “If you don’t wake up from that theological fog, more people are going to die. Three people die on the streets every day in Los Angeles County. Three every day, and people who get in the way of treating those people are murderers. They are, and I’m sick of it.”

The celebrity doctor claimed to be a moderate when it comes to his political stances and said he would likely run in the Democratic primary for the 28th District (Schiff’s District) if he decided to throw his hat in the ring.

Despite his newfound fervor for politics, Pinsky told The Hill that a run for office might prove too chaotic and could uproot his life. He left room for the possibility however and said California’s current decay continues to remind him of how badly the state needs strong leadership.

    I am a Trump supporter, and why isn’t the left being held accountable for obstructing Congress, the Senate and most of all, the American People. They have to be held accountable for their actions on Impeachment. PELOSI, Waters, Shifty Shif, Nadler, Ilan, Tlaib, should all step down and resign. They are the ones that divided this nation along with OBAMA and his wife and Hil-Liary Clinton. They should be imprisoned.

    Every person in Congress whose district is in turmoil & their time is spent on frivolous witch hunts should be bounced out of office. There is a democratic process to remove a person from office & if you believe you cannot depend on the American voter to do that then that should tell you the American voter does not want that person removed.

    It is refreshing to hear a Democrat that wants to get things done. Many of our problems could be solved by term limits. Many in the House and Senate have retired in place. They make some noise so that people remember who they are, but do not do the Peoples work. President Trump puts all of the to shame. He has accomplished almost all of his election promises over the obstructionism from both Democrats and Republicans.

    WE NEED NEW BLOOD IN CONGRESS … NOT WHAT WE HAVE HAD TO LIVE WITH FOR THESE LAST 14YRS. AND WE NEED TO GET BACK -TERM LIMITS. SOME HOW CONGRESS MADE ON OF THOSE MIDNIGHT LAWS AND DID AWAY WITH TERM LIMITS. BECAUSE I KNOW WE HAD IT. AT LEAST 30YRS AGO. THAT IS WHY WE ARE IN THE MESS WE ARE IN . SOME OF THOSE PEOPLE MADE A CAREER OUT OF IT AND GOT WEALTHY TO BOOT. THEY SNUCK ONE PAST US -WELL NO MORE. ONE THING MORE WE NEED IS GOOD AMERICAN PEOPLE WHO LOVE AMERICA AS WE DO. NO MORE FOREIGN NATIONALS– LIKE THE ONES YOU KNOW I’M TALKING ABOUT. THAT HAS BEEN IN CONGRESS FOR A YR NOW. AND THAT HATE AMERICA. LET ALONE WE NEED TO FIND OUT ABOUT THOSE 2,500 PEOPLE THAT OBAMA LET IN. AND THE CAIR AND MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD NEED TO GO. THOSE PEOPLE HAVE THEIR OWN AGENDA FOR AMERICA AND IT IS NOT THE SAME AS OURS.! THEY ARE A THREAT TO THE WAY WE LOVE AMERICA.!!

    I hope you do. Him and Nancy both need to go. They’re too obsessed with impeaching the president because they don’t like him, instead of paying attention to their own state.

    Adam Schiff needs to be ran out of politics, ASAP! He is a liar and a disgrace to the Dem party, as well as Pelosi, Nadler and Schumer….and I am a Democrat who WILL be voting for Trump 2020. If the Dems EVER find a presidential candidate who is worth voting for, I will vote Dem again. Biden has dementia. Warren lies all the time. Dems have no one running worth my vote.

    Then this is a FAKE NEWS article. THEre is NOTHING he can do IN DC that will resolve LOCAL issues as the ones he describes EXCEPT attempt to fund and throw money at a new or existing department of government.

    I do have a SIMPLE solution. Anyone found with more than X ounces of drugs for distribution be sentenced to death (execution must take place within 36 months of conviction PERIOD as this gives time for Supreme Court review. Anyone found with more than Y ounces of drugs for distribution get 25 years. Anyone that wants help getting of drugs permanently gets ONE chance and the PEOPLE will help you. If you can’t do it in ONE chance then guess what…you get NOTHING, no help of any kind, no government money of any kind, no medical are of any kind in the future. Be willing to help anyone, but ONLY if they are willing to help themselves. Call it a LAST chance deal.

    Our President’s border wall should begin reducing the availability of illegal drugs, thus reducing the number of addicts dying on the streets of LA. Dr. Pinsky should acknowledge this fact, announce his support for President Trump’s policies and run as a Republican. One more freshman DemWit required to toe the company line for several terms by DemWit leadership will do exactly ZERO for helping with California’s problems. We need fewer DemWits in Congress, not more ineffectual newbies under DemWit control.

    Let me get this straight. Pelosi calls Susan Collins a liar at the same time Pelosi is lying about “Court Fight On Impeachment Witnesses”. Big mistake lying about Ms. Collins on National T.V. You might have pissed off one of the few RHINOS left.
