Schumer Warns Trump To Choose A Liberal To Fill Supreme Court Vacancy

schumer warns trump supreme court


Simple arithmetic shows us that, since the GOP holds 52 seats and 60 votes are needed to confirm a Supreme Court nominee, Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has a little room to work with in regards to blocking Trump nominees.  

A day after naming a hit list of eight of Mr. Trump’s cabinet picks that the Democrats promise to target in Senate confirmation hearings, Schumer is playing his designated role of the big Chihuahua on the issue of Supreme Court appointments.

He’s warning President-elect Trump to pick someone along the lines of the current Obama choice, a liberal who was unacceptable, gun-grabbing Merrick Garland. Garland is someone Schumer described as a “mainstream” choice and he might be, if that Second Amendment weren’t still part of the Bill of Rights. Otherwise they can expect to be opposed “with everything we have.”

Schumer said in a Wednesday interview, “My worry is, with the hard right running the show, that the likelihood of the nominee being mainstream is decreasing every day.” His comments came one day after stating that the Democrats would “absolutely” do their best to keep the vacancy on the Supreme Court unfilled if they don’t get someone that is liberal enough to give them a majority on the court.

Mitch McConnell responded to Schumer’s comments, saying, “There’s apparently a new standard now, which is to not confirm a Supreme Court nominee, at all, something the American people will not tolerate.”

McConnell has the option of following in the footsteps of former Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and changing the rules to restrict the opportunities for Democrat filibusters on Supreme Court nominees, something Reid did for lower court and other nominees in 2013.

Trump hasn’t even been sworn into office yet and Chuck Schumer has already succeeded in making an intolerable nuisance of himself. Whenever possible Mr. Trump needs to just steamroll the big-mouthed Democrat, driving him to irrelevance as quickly and as permanently as possible. He’s got work to do and all Schumer wants to do is stall until 2018 and 2020.

  1. Who does this jerk think he is? There are laws against Bullying and that is all he is about….who the “H” elected this jerk?

  2. Drain The Swamp! Take down names and start kicking ass! I support a POLLITICAL PURGE. ENOUGH OF THESE IDIOTS!!!
    Here is a way to make these BLM thugs useful to modern society: Every day, someone should make a list of names and hand it to the thugs as a hit list. Every day on that list should be names of idiots like Schumer and the Hollywood Morons (known as the Screen Actors Guild roster)! Idiots who promise to block our government progress should be dealt with swiftly and permanently! If Killary (as a regular person) can murder political apponents so as to try and win an election, Trump (as president) should be cleared to do so to move this country forward and rid our society of these loud and anoying idealists that are being a-holes just to be a-holes! Someone just shut them (Democrats) up PLEASE!!!

  3. Term limits.

  4. How can democrap voters be ” mainstream”, most are duplicates, dead, or imaginary people. And…ILLEGALS.

    Gotta laugh at these imbeciles! How many times did the Dumocrats accuse the Republicans of being “obstructionists,” of promoting gridlock, of wanting to shut the govt. down instead of just caving and passing whatever ill-conceived BS they concocted? Yet, here we have UpChuck Schumer pledging to block anything and everything that Trump wants to do before he’s even in office, and detailed bills are on the table! Compromise? Not in their vocabulary. Good, ’cause that word doesn’t exist in Ours, either! Schumer wants war- he’s got it. Take no prisoners.

  6. Uh, NO! I am sure Donald Trump is having a good laugh at that option.
