Tool Town got a little more violent last week.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer not only clearly threatened conservative members of the Supreme Court, he caught himself once again in the hypocrite’s snare.
“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,” the New York Democrat told a friendly crowd of abortion supporters Wednesday at a rally in front of the Supreme Court.
What’s lost in the coverage, of course, is that the crowd lustily cheered Schumer’s threats against Supreme Court justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.
Facing criticism on all sides, particularly from Chief Justice John Roberts, Schumer’s staff lashed out, insisting Roberts took the senator’s comments out of context. When the inane defense failed, Schumer was forced to do something he clearly is not very good at: apologize.
Well, describing Schumer’s lame mea culpa on the Senate floor as an apology is kind of like claiming Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky was a cure for the former president’s anxiety.
It is more than interesting that just last month, Schumer implored Roberts to “defend the independence of this federal judge” after President Trump on Twitter criticized the magistrate presiding over the sentencing of his former associate, Roger Stone.
How does telling a crowd of diehard abortion supporters that conservative justices “will pay the price” for their legal opinions uphold the “independence” of the court system?
How does Schumer still have his job as leader of the Senate’s minority?
Because he’s a tool of the left, and many liberals (as noted by the cheering pro-abortion crowd), agree with Schumer’s threatening rhetoric.
For his hypocrisy and for so much more, Chuck Schumer is Empower Wisconsin’s Tool of the Week.
