Chuck Schumer is proving to be the New York version of Harry Reid. He’s slimy, despicable and a filthy liar. He also loves to thrown around insults to those in the other party and punk out on his deals. Schumer had a deal with Republicans to confirm Mike Pompeo on Friday, rather than tonight. An unnecessary 72 hour delay. Tom Cotton of Arkansas then confront slimy Schumer on the Senate floor and Schumer insulted Cotton. That proved to be a bad idea. Chuck Schumer, like his untalented fat neice Amy Schumer isn’t a very good actor. Tom Cotton took Schumer to school on the Senate floor after slimy Schumer insulted him.
|Chuck Schumer insults Tom Cotton – gets destroyed on Senate floor|
This is the same Chuck Schumer who took a bunch of money from Bernie Madoff and never returned it.
The Senate reconvened after the inaugural ceremonies on Friday, with Pompeo’s nomination set to come up at 4:50pm. Cotton angrily confronted Schumer about his broken promise. According to witnesses, Schumer told Cotton to lower his voice and asked him move off of the Senate floor to an adjacent hallway for a private discussion. “We need to take this out into the hallway,” Schumer said. Cotton walked with Schumer but loudly rejected his first request. “Don’t tell me to lower my voice!” he shouted, with an additional salty admonition tacked on for emphasis. Burr and Cornyn were present, as was Senator Mark Warner, ranking member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, and several aides.
Schumer told Cotton that the Senate had never previously confirmed a CIA director on Inauguration Day and if Cotton had been around eight years earlier, he’d know that Republicans didn’t extend that courtesy for incoming president Barack Obama. “Eight years ago, I was getting my ass shot at in Afghanistan,” Cotton snapped. “So don’t talk to me about where I was 8 years ago.”
I’m going to enjoy watching the slimy New York Democrat Schumer get his ass handed to him for at least four years and hopefully eight.
