Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is all but conceding that President Trump’s pick for the Supreme Court, Judge Neil Gorsuch, will be approved. To listen to the cantankerous and bitterly partisan Democrat hack, one comes away with the notion that Schumer is the quintessential Emperor with no clothes.
The Washington Examiner reported on April 3 that Schumer’s true petulance and pettiness came out when he justified his party’s obstinacy as payback for Merrick Garland’s inability to get a vote on his nomination by the Democrats. “We can go back and forth and blame each other,” mused Schumer, “but the recent history of the vacancy caused by Justice Antonin Scalia’s death, we both lost.”
While Democrats could filibuster the nomination, it is looking more and more like the Republicans will have no problem nuking that ploy. Schumer knows this and this is why he has referenced that the Democrats inevitable lose is becoming clear.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell referred to Schumer’s hinting of a filibuster as “a new low”.
Somehow, I don’t think New York slime-ball Schumer knows the meaning of that phrase.
