    Friday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) called President Donald Trump the “weakest” president in American history. Schumer said, “President Trump from day one has shown such weakness to Vladimir Putin that an autocratic power-grabbing man like him will constantly take advantage and he has been doing that through the years. Right now, with everything going on, with Russia being one of the biggest foes that we have, Trump calls for them joining the G-8, you know making the G7 a G8 and adding them in. When every other country says no way.”
  • Something I asked a Liberal/Dem the other day: Where is the Democrat Leadership?

    I was talking with a liberal/democrat the other day during a business transaction, ( they don't know that I am a conservative and I have pretended to be middle left before when dealing with them, they are a lot further left than what I am pretending to be ). And I brought up the point that "Where the hell is the democrat leadership?" I said the anti-Fa and BLM are running around tearing down statues of confederates, and that is perfectly fine ( again playing the part), but now they are goign after statues of Abe Lincoln and other abolitionists...
  • Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer care so much about #BlackLivesMatter they botch Floyd’s name over and over again (watch)

    This is just painful. Every four years or so, Democrats like Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have to pretend to actually care about racism and the Black community so they can continue to take advantage of that population for votes. C’mon, it’s not like they really care. If they did, you’d think they’d have done more for that community in the combined 70+ years these two dinosaurs have been in office. They can’t even get George Floyd’s name right. Watch.
  • In Blow to Schumer, McGrath Lead Evaporates in KY Senate Primary

    Booker celebrated his newfound lead in a Thursday morning tweet, saying, "something big" was going on in the state. McGrath has yet to address the new vote total. McGrath will become the biggest fundraiser to lose a congressional primary in U.S. history should she fail to close the gap. She was endorsed by the Chuck Schumer-controlled Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee in February, using the national support to raise nearly $41 million. Nearly 97 percent of her campaign funds came from out-of-state donors, as McGrath ran watered-down ads in major liberal cities to court donors. Booker, meanwhile, raised just $793,000 as...
  • 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”...

    What was meant as a gesture of solidarity with the Black Lives Matter claim to represent the interests of African-Americans turned into an ironic joke. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif), Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) and twenty other Democrats wore scarves made of Kente cloth as they knelt for eight minutes and 46 seconds in the Capitol as a tribute to George Floyd. Kente scarves were traditionally worn by the wealthy leaders of the Ashanti tribes of what is now known as Ghana. The ugly truth is that these leaders were major players in the slave trade. Nevertheless, Pelosi...

    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...

    Democrats faced intense backlash on Monday over a political stunt that they pulled in an attempt to show solidarity with the black community over death of George Floyd. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY), and other top Democrats took at knee at Capitol Hill while wearing Kente cloth, which, as noted by The Washington Post, “comes from Ghana, where people wear it to show patriotism or celebrate a special occasion.” The photo-op moment for Democrats quickly went viral online — but not in a good way, as numerous people from the black community mocked and...

    Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) is calling on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to give police reform and coronavirus legislation votes before a two-week July 4 recess. The Senate has more than three weeks before they leave for the break, though McConnell has not indicated that either item is on his agenda. “There is no reason that we cannot respond to this moment of national crisis with vigorous and sustained action, with purposeful action and bipartisan effort on the COVID pandemic and long-simmering issues of police violence and racial justice. We must do both,” Schumer said from the...

    According to the Department of Labor's May report on employment, non-farm payrolls rose by 2.5 million and the unemployment rate fell to 13.3%—the biggest positive shift in more than 80 years. This confounded a Wall Street Journal prediction that these payrolls would decline by 8.3 million and unemployment would rise to 19.5%--the highest since the Great Depression. President Trump hailed the jobs numbers and said "the great enterprise of American business owners and workers is the key driving factor. As the lockdowns are being eased, the boom stimulated by the tax cuts and deregulation we implemented earlier in my term...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on Thursday slammed President Donald Trump for how he has handled various crises and situations the country has faced in recent weeks. Schumer said during MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that not only does Trump go “beyond” the boundary in every situation, but “you never can underestimate how bad” he will be in “every instance. Schumer pointed to the incident with Trump and protesters in Lafayette Park, vote-by-mail, election interference and other situations as some of the examples.

    The Senate’s top Democrat compared the Trump administration’s use of the military to protect the Lincoln Memorial from protester damage to the 1989 Chinese government crackdown and killing of demonstrators in Tiananmen Square. “Rows of camouflaged troops standing at attention on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, like an occupying force defending a critical position,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said in a Senate floor speech Wednesday. “When you see the image of troops dressed for combat, flanking the Lincoln Memorial, an altar to freedom, you cannot help but think of Tiananmen Square.” President Trump ordered the D.C. National Guard...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Tuesday blocked a resolution from Democrats that would have condemned President Trump after rubber bullets and gas were used on peaceful protesters near the White House. Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) tried to pass the resolution, which was introduced earlier Tuesday, by unanimous consent, meaning any one senator could block it. "If a senator objects, they should be asked if they believe Americans do not have the constitutional right to exercise the freedom of speech. ... Do they support the president's use of tear gas against people, including families, who are peacefully...

    Senate Democrats will introduce a resolution to condemn President Trump for the use of tear gas against protesters outside the White House Monday evening.  The resolution, which is expected to be introduced on Tuesday, would condemn Trump for "ordering Federal officers to use gas and rubber bullets against the Americans who were peaceably protesting in Lafayette Square in Washington, DC on the night of June 1, 2020, thereby violating the constitutional rights of those peaceful protestors."   The National Guard, U.S. Park Police and Secret Service used rubber bullets and tear gas to clear demonstrators from Lafayette Square so that Trump could...

    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...

Chuck Schumer jabbed at President Trump on Twitter Thursday after the commander in chief’s public dispute with the social media giant earlier this week. “If President Trump doesn’t like Twitter, he can do everyone a favor and stop tweeting,” the Democratic senator tweeted. The disagreement grew out of Twitter’s decision this week to fact-check one of President Trump’s tweets – the first time it has done so.

    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...

    But Schumer indicated that reopening the U.S. economy immediately is not the kind of "big, bold action" he envisions. Instead, he wants President Trump to listen to Dr. Anthony Fauci, who urged caution at a Senate hearing on Tuesday. "The consequences could be really serious," Fauci warned, if states ignore the federal guidelines on "how to safely open America again." "On Fauci, I just hope that the president listens to Fauci," Schumer said . . . Host George Stephanopoulos asked Biden about Dr. Fauci's warning not to reopen the country too quickly: "If you were president right now, what would...
