Wednesday on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) elaborated on his party’s efforts to slow the confirmation of President Donald Trump’s cabinet appointees, including Jeff Sessions, who was confirmed earlier in the day by the U.S. Senate.
Host Rachel Maddow told Schumer she had been told by former Obama White House officials their biggest concern about the upcoming Trump presidency was Sessions heading the Department of Justice. Schumer concurred by responding that Sessions was “anti-immigrant” and had a bad record on civil and voting rights.
“When Jeff Sessions was passed, it turned my stomach,” Schumer said. “I don’t have anything against him personally. It’s known we here in that gym together in the morning but to have a man like this with his record on immigration, he’s almost certainly the most anti-immigrant senator of the hundred, on civil rights and voting rights he’s probably one of the top three or four against these sacred rights, civil rights, and voting rights, he doesn’t belong there and I think a lot of Republicans know it.”
Thanks for the laugh, it was good.
Hmmmmmm you may be on to something....his father ran an exterminating business.
Schumer was born in Brooklyn, the son of Selma (née Rosen) and Abraham Schumer. His father ran an exterminating business, and his mother was a homemaker.His family is Jewish, and he is a second cousin, once removed, of comedian and actress Amy Schumer. His ancestors originated from the town of Chortkiv, Galicia, in what is now western Ukraine.
He attended public schools in Brooklyn, scoring a perfect 1600 on the SAT, and graduated as class valedictorian from James Madison High School, in 1967. Schumer competed for Madison High on the It's Academic television quiz show. He attended Harvard College, where he became interested in politics and campaigned for Eugene McCarthy, in 1968. After completing his undergraduate degree, he continued to Harvard Law School, earning his Juris Doctor with honors, in 1974. Schumer passed the New York state bar, in early 1975. However, he never practiced law, choosing instead a career in politics.
This nation persevered through 8 years of Obama and survived . . . barely.
With the installation of President Trump by We the People, this nation is on the way to recovery.
However, that does NOT mean we rest on our laurels.
We have to continue to pound sand up the posteriors of the denizens of the desert and slaughter our political enemies of both stripes no matter how well placed they might seem at the time.
This is NOT the time to let others handle it. We the People are well seasoned from the last 8 years of political war. We're still functional. We can still fight. Until our replacements are ready, we have to continue to fight on. It might take a while.
Unfortunately he's probably laughing his ass off right now.....that the 9th court did NOT uphold Trump's temporary travel-ban. MORONS.
The Trump administration will fight it......and win. The downside is that this decision (blatantly ideological) will embolden the nut base in the DEM party. It will also slow down Trumps 100 day agenda. However, they are not going to win a whole lot in the next four to eight years. Trump received a bitter dose of Far Left war tactics. Hopefully, Steve Bannon and company will continue to enlighten Trump, regarding all the devious methods the Left will use to defeat his Presidential agenda. These radical criminals are NOT players that will ever play fair, nor would you ever want to entertain a 'reach across the aisle' attitude, for a deal. Trump must apply the pedal to the metal to outright DEFEAT THEM!
Frankmusic:"...will embolden the nut base in the DEM party."
That's the idea...to embolden them to expose their nuttiness. They are so infected with the Liberalism virus that they can't even see themselves exposing their nuttiness. The actually believe they are winning......ROFLMAO!
My stomach turns each time I hear you or your cronies standing spewing your venom.
You are NEVER going to know what can happen to our Country, UNTIL YOU, as the Minority Leader of the United States Senate stop crying and start acting like a "Leader" (or drop the title)!
You and the band of wind bags that turn on everybody and everything, if YOU don't agree! YOU need to realize that YOU DO NOT KNOW EVERYTHING THAT IS RIGHT OR WRONG FOR "WE THE PEOPLE", and you damn sure have turned a deaf ear to what WE have to say. Lead, Follow or get the HELL out of Congress!!!!!
