CHUCK Schumer was slammed by Prez Turmp after the Dumb Dem attacked Supreme Court Judges.
During a rally outside of the United States Supreme Court, whereby an abortion case was being debated, Democratic Senator for New York and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer made threats against conservative pro-life judges Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh over their views, stating that ‘You have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price. You will not know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions’.
This has caused much backlash among the Supreme Court and the political spectrum in the United States. For the former, Republican Chief Justice John Roberts (in a rare intervention) called the remarks ‘inappropriate’ and ‘dangerous’.
President Donald Trump took to Twitter to voice his objections, mainly that his words ‘a direct & dangerous threat to the U.S. Supreme Court by Schumer’ and that he had ‘brought great danger to the steps of the United States Supreme Court’.
He also claimed that a Republican would be in ‘jail’ for those comments during a Fox News town hall. Republican Senator for Kentucky and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell echoed these concerns, claiming that Schumer’s behaviour was ‘shameful’ and his comments ‘completely irresponsible’ and that he should apologise for his actions.
McConnell even apologised for repeating Schumer’s comments.
Schumer later took back some of those comments, claiming he ‘shouldn’t have used the words’ that he did, but defended himself as well, stating that ‘but in no way was I making a threat’, and that from his home area of Brooklyn, people there ‘speak in strong language’.
