Dem Leader Chuck Schumer Shows Signs Of Usefulness: Trolling Mitch McConnell To All Hell
Schemin' and eatin' soup.
What did Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer spend Monday afternoon doing? If you guessed "Giving Mitch McConnell Hilarious Wedgies On Twitter," you are correct! Schumer tweeted this to McConnell:
Can you read that? We are not transcribing the whole thing, but if you can't tell, it's a letter Mitch McConnell sent to Harry Reid back in 2009, as the Senate prepared to hold hearings on President Obama's nominees. It encouraged everybody on both sides of the aisle to follow time-honored practices in making sure each nominee was fully vetted, having passed FBI background checks, submitted financial disclosures, and made sure they were square with the Office of Government Ethics (OGE).
So Schumer just tweeted THE SAME LETTER, but crossed out the "Dear Harry Reid" part and changed it "Hey Mitch You Fucker" and changed the "Sincerely, Senator Turtledick" to "LOVE, CHUCKLES." Oh, and these are the words he tweeted with the picture:
Our requests are eminently reasonable, shared by leaders of both parties. I'll return this letter to @SenateMajLdr with the same requests.
LOLOL! Show America what a goddamn hypocrite Mitch McConnell is, Chuck Schumer!
It's really funny because McConnell actually said Democrats who want to fully vet these nominations -- or even delay them, something Republicans NEVER have done ever -- need to "grow up." He also is completely brushing off any concerns that Trump's nominees aren't anywhere near close to being fully vetted, because pffffffft, they are Republicans, they don't have to follow the same rules as everybody else, especially under Fuehrer Trump. Is it because McConnell lacks all self-awareness, or because he is a craven reptile who takes one million years to even go to the mailbox, due to how turtles walk slow? BOTH.
This is also the same Mitch McConnell who huffed and puffed that the American people simply won't tolerate it if Democrats decide to keep Merrick Garland's rightful Supreme Court seat open for a few years, because apparently the minority of voters who support Trump and Senate Republicans count for more than the majority who watched McConnell refuse to give Garland a hearing for close on a year, because Obama is black and McConnell didn't want to.
Anyway, fuck Mitch McConnell is the point. It's always the point. Also, too, keep fightin' the good fight, Chuck Schumer!
