Thursday’s impeachment trial in the Senate ran well into the night, and the last question from a senator was addressed to the House managers. Rep. Jerrold Nadler was eager to provide an answer, but Adam Schiff didn’t seem to want that to happen:

That certainly seems to be the case:
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

This video of Adam Schiff desperately trying to stop Jerry Nadler from seizing the microphone is priceless.

How could Jerry Nadler do that?
Adam Schiff had so many more conversations to fabricate

An MSNBC panel made a note of it:
"Adam Schiff stood. He was ready to go to the podium. He only had to do about 3 steps to get there. Jerry Nadler had to do about 12.
"It's the FASTEST I've seen Jerry Nadler move, in the 25 years that I've known him." pic.twitter.com/EVziTG6Km6
