Here’s what Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer had to say at a Washington, DC pro-abortion demonstration, “I want to tell you, Gorsuch. I want to tell you, Kavanaugh. You have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price! You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”
Chuck’s unhinged remarks were in front of an angry crowd on the steps of the Supreme Court. The demonstration was about the High Court’s deliberation over a Louisiana abortion restriction. It’s no secret that crazy abortionists become absolutely psychotic at any threat to undermine Roe vs. Wade—even to the point where it’s just fine to puncture an infant’s skull at the point of birth.
Senator Schumer, faced with an unprecedented rebuke from U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Roberts was forced to backtrack his mafia style threats on the Senate floor in front of his colleagues. “Now I should not have used the words I used. They didn’t come out the way I intended to.”
Sure, he in no way meant to threaten President Trump’s two appointees Gorsuch and Kavanaugh. We’ll just have to take your word for it Schumer!
Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell wasn’t buying those weasel words. Schumer, said McConnell was attempting to “gaslight the entire country” by denying he was addressing the justices. (Gaslighting, by the way, is a head game where someone tries to gain power and encourage others to question their reality. Democrats have been doing that a lot in these days of their Trump derangement syndrome.)
McConnell ripped Schumer a new one in the Senate, “But if (Schumer) cannot even admit to saying what he said, we certainly cannot know what he meant. At the very best his comments were astonishingly reckless and extremely irresponsible.”
As Schumer headed for the tall grass, his spokesman Justin Goodman added a few BTUs to the gaslighting. Schumer, he insisted, was addressing Republican lawmakers. Those lawmakers would be the ones who would pay the price.
Note to Goodman: Gorsuch and Kavanaugh are not lawmakers. Schumer addressed his comments to them—by name and it was clear as day.
Senator McConnell wasn’t alone in his condemnation of Schumer. Others called on Schumer to apologize for injecting partisan politics into the judicial process. Senator Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, called Schumer’s remarks “a threat targeting two sitting members of the Supreme Court.”
Senator Josh Hawley, R-Mo, knows that Schumer has no shame and will never apologize. Schumer characterizes direct quotes of what he said as “rightwing distortions.” Sen. Hawley plans to introduce a motion to censure Schumer “for his pathetic attempt at intimidation of [the] Supreme Court.”
Likewise, the American Bar Association was not amused. “Personal attacks on judges by any elected officials, including the President, are simply inappropriate. Such comments challenge the reputation of the third, co-equal branch of our government; the independence of the judiciary; and the personal safety of judicial officers. They are never acceptable.”
In his fake apology speech before the Senate, Schumer’s words were to the effect, “Who are you going to believe, my passionate defense of a woman’s right to choose or your own lying ears?”
Chuck wryly commented that he was from Brooklyn, where people “speak in strong language.” His craven inability to admit he was wrong and to just say he was sorry prompted strong language from President Trump: “Schumer has brought great danger to the steps of the United States Supreme Court.”
