    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Friday called George Floyd by the wrong name during a press conference less than 24 hours after House Democrats passed police reform legislation. 80-year-old Pelosi referred to George Floyd, the black man who was killed by a Minnesota police officer, as “George Kirby.” Pelosi was quoting her conversation with Floyd’s brother when she made her mistake. “I only will do that [name the bill after Floyd] if this legislation is worthy of George Kirby’s name, and he said it is,” the speaker said with a smile.

    GOP rallies around Trump after firing of Manhattan US attorney BY ALEXANDER BOLTON - 06/22/20 08:05 PM EDT — GOP rallies around Trump after firing of Manhattan US attorney Senate Republicans on Monday largely defended President Trump following his controversial decision this week to fire Geoffrey Berman, the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York. Senate Majority Whip John Thune (R-S.D.) said Trump was within his right to fire Berman, who was involved in a number of politically sensitive investigations that touched on Trump and his advisers. “It’s kind of like previous firings, I would say,” Thune said....
  • Trump urges AOC to run against Schumer, says she’d win

    President Trump urged Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., to run against the state’s longtime Sen. Chuck Schumer in the 2022 primary in November, saying that she would be a “big improvement” and that she would likely win. Schumer, the Senate minority leader, has been a vocal critic of the president, but so has Ocasio-Cortez, who faces her own primary challenger this year for her House seat. Critics of the president say Trump's call on Ocasio-Cortez to run is simply an attempt to divide the party. Trump retweeted a report from the Washington Times that said liberals “are kicking around the idea”...
  • Graham says he won't advance Trump nominee for SDNY prosecutor without Schumer, Gillibrand consent

    Sen. Lindsey Graham said Saturday he will not take up President Trump's nomination for a new U.S. attorney for Manhattan unless New York's Democratic senators sign off. Graham, a Republican from South Carolina who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, said he will honor the "blue slip" tradition and require the consent of home state senators to proceed -- in this case, Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand. Graham's statement signals an uphill climb for Trump to get a new Senate-confirmed federal prosecutor in one of the nation’s most high-profile districts. It comes hours after Attorney General Bill Barr made a Friday...
  • Newt Gingrich: If Biden, Pelosi and Schumer are in charge in 2021 get ready for this nightmare

    Every time some supposed conservative or Republican explains why he or she can’t vote for President Trump, I wonder if they have thought about the alternative – the Biden-Schumer-Pelosi machine. Our choice in November will not be between President Trump and President Perfection. It will be between President Trump and a nightmare that would end America as we have known it. If former Vice President Joe Biden wins, it means the turnout in favor of Democrats will be such that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., remains leader of a Democratic majority in the House. It also means that Democrats will...

    A former national surrogate for Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., ripped into white congressional Democrats on Monday after they wore African-patterned garb and knelt in a demonstration against racism and police brutality. "I still can’t wrap my mind around the fact that they draped these white people in kente cloth to 'honor' him. This has to be hell," author Frederick Joseph tweeted, also arguing that black Americans are "being pandered to, and ultimately, disrespected." In a tweet thread, he argued that Democrats were failing in their attempts to be helpful amid ongoing strife surrounding George Floyd's death. He specifically took aim...

    Government officials should investigate the treatment of protesters who gathered near the White House on Monday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said Tuesday. “Secretary [of Defense Mark] Esper, General [Mark] Milley should not allow the U.S. military to come within a country mile of these ugly stunts,” he stated in remarks given from the Senate floor, according to the Hill. “The administration is using the military as a tool to intimidate American citizens and the Department of Defense IG must immediately launch an investigation into how the U.S military was used and whether it was consistent with the laws...

    Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) issued a joint statement Monday evening condemning President Donald Trump for his statement on the ongoing nationwide violence. Earlier Monday evening, Trump declared in the Rose Garden at the White House that he would end the riots that had sprung up around the legitimate protests against the death of George Floyd in the custody of Minneapolis police. He then walked across Lafayette Park, which had been a flashpoint for violent protest for several nights, and had been cleared by tear gas before Trump’s statement. The president,...

    Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said on Friday that Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) should force members of his caucus to call off hearings and business meetings scheduled next week as part of GOP investigations tied to the Obama administration. Schumer, in a letter sent to Senate Democrats, said Republicans have become the "conspiracy caucus." "The Republican-led Judiciary and Homeland Security Committees — two powerful committees with broad jurisdiction over issues related to the coronavirus — have instead used their majority to chase wild conspiracy theories to appease President Trump," Schumer wrote. "They have failed the American people by...

    Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis spoke too soon when he criticized the media's dire predictions about his reopening strategy, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., argued on Thursday. "What he’s saying is premature," Schumer told "The View." "Most of the experts say if this is going to come back because we moved too soon, it will take several months before that happens — July, August, September, October. And to compare New York and Florida is sort of like apples and oranges." "We were the hot spot. We had more coronavirus cases than anybody else, and so I think you’ve got...

    Tensions are flaring in the Senate as Republicans prepare to ramp up their investigations into Obama-era officials. Amid public and private pressure from President Trump, GOP senators are increasingly embracing calls to use their congressional power to investigate some of Trump’s biggest grievances stemming from the Obama administration, including the origins of the Russia investigation, the court established by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) and Hunter Biden. Democrats argue Republicans are using their committee gavels to probe Trump’s political enemies, an effort they say is designed to hunt for political fodder against former Vice President Joe Biden, the presumptive...
  • Joe Scarborough: 'Let Me Assure You'—Trump Not Taking Hydroxychloroquine

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Yesterday, we noted MSNBC's John Heilemann saying there was a "high probability" that President Trump is not taking hydroxychloroquine. Joe Scarborough took things a huge step further on today's Morning Joe, flatly asserting that the president is lying. Scarborough claimed that President Trump announced he was taking the drug in order to distract Americans from, among other things, the virus death toll that has now exceeded 90,000. Notice how they always slam conservatives for "conspiracy theories," but they're always unspooling Trump conspiracy theories themselves. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    President Trump reignited the media firestorm over his endorsement of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) as a prophylactic against and treatment for coronavirus, revealing in response to  question that he is currently taking the drug and has been doing so for about two weeks. To my eyes, he appeared to relish the bewilderment and outrage that immediately started brewing among the media facing him. Watch all four minutes for yourself: I happened to be watching Neil Cavuto’s Fox News show when the program cut away to President Trump answering reporters’ questions following his meeting with restaurant industry executives, and so had the...

    Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Monday accused President Trump of “giving people false hope” after the president revealed earlier that he has been taking hydroxychloroquine despite a lack of evidence proving the drug to be effective in treating and preventing the novel coronavirus. “What the president did with hydroxychloroquine was reckless, simply reckless,” Schumer during an appearance on MSNBC. The New York Democrat also said that Trump was “giving people false hope” with his comments and said “people may take it instead of going to the doctor.” “But it’s worse than that,” he continued. “His own FDA has...

    Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) countered a Democrat-led push for more regulations on “ghost guns” by making clear his belief that there is enough gun control already. On May 15, 2020, Breitbart News reported that Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and other Democrats are demanding background checks for “ghost guns” and kits containing parts that can be used to build guns. The Mike Bloomberg-founded gun control group, Everytown for Gun Safety, supports the Democrat push. Politico quoted Sen. Cornyn in a way that gave readers the impression that he also supported the advocacy. They reported that Cornyn “might...

Can gun control advocates like Schumer truly be this ignorant? No matter how many times they are corrected about the difference between semi-automatics and automatics, they continue making stupid statements like this.

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is itching to hear from Dr. Anthony Fauci as he testifies before the Senate Health Committee Tuesday morning. The Democrat believes that without President Trump looking over his shoulder, Fauci can tell them how he really feels about the administration. "Fauci has a huge amount of respect and it seems at times he's muzzled by the president," Schumer said. "The president is always lurking over his shoulder. This is the first time we get to hear him without the president looking over his shoulder or cutting him off or cutting the reporter off who asks...

    In eager anticipation of the Senate's virtual hearings with four top doctors from President Trump's coronavirus task force, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., urged Dr. Anthony Fauci to "let it rip." Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, is scheduled to testify for the first time before the Senate Health Committee on Tuesday about the way Trump has responded to the coronavirus pandemic. "Until now, we've mostly heard from the members of the coronavirus task force through the distorted lens of the White House press conference where the president often prevents them from answering...
