Wednesday, Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer opposed the nomination of A. Marvin Quattlebaum Jr. as a South Carolina federal district judge. The nominee was confirmed by a 69-28 vote. Schumer's objection, cloaked as complaining about "the overall lack of diversity in President Trump's (judicial) selections": Quattlebaum is white. Any senator opposing a non-white nominee based on skin color would have received saturation media coverage within minutes, but the establishment press is virtually ignoring Schumer's remarks.
It didn’t take long after the three-day federal government shutdown ended for liberals in the Democratic Party and the mainstream media to do all they can to assign blame for what is being called the “Trump Shutdown” by CNN Newsroom guest and Democratic Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Fla.), who branded it as “insane” and was a result of the “complete ineptitude of this president and Republican leadership.”
The journalists at CBS This Morning on Monday placed the blame for the government shutdown on Donald Trump and the Republicans. Co-host Gayle King pressured the President to “do more” on ending the stalemate. The journalists failed to point out that Chuck Schumer in 2013 vowed not to shut down the government over immigration.
On day one of the 2018 government shutdown, Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) came out and claimed that he offered President Trump funding for his border wall in exchange for protection for so-called Dreamers via the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and he turned it down. Since then, the liberal media have been running around claiming that Trump was the reason an agreement couldn’t be reached.
Hours ahead of a possible government shutdown, CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta debased his already self-centered act by playing the role of sycophant on Friday morning for Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) by tangling with Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney over basic facts about Senate procedure.
Back in 2013, with Democrats controlling the Senate and White House, a study by the Media Research Center determined that the broadcast networks mostly blamed Republicans for that year's government shutdown. In the midst of the shutdown, Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer (now the Democratic Senate leader) actually went on ABC's This Week on October 6, 2013 to assure host George Stephanopoulos that Democrats would never shut the government down over an issue such as immigration.
“Resistance” leader of late-night television, CBS’s Stephen Colbert, doesn’t even pretend that his show is only catered to the country’s most die-hard liberals at this point. On his January 15 show, he invited Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on as his guest, to basically parrot what he does every night on his show: mock Trump and slam the right as racists who only care about the wealthy.
On Tuesday night, Senate Democrat Minority Leader Chuck Schumer got upset because too many other people were allegedly talking while he was making a speech on the Senate floor. CNN turned Sen. Schumer's complaint into a rude-Republicans moment, and failed to note that the supposed substance of Schumer's speech was a laughable crock.
On the Fox Business Network on Tuesday, Happening Now host Melissa Francis would not let her Democratic Party guest get away with refusing to answer her question about tax reform. Eventually, she goaded former Clinton adviser Simon Rosenberg into acknowledging that he was refusing to answer her question (then why did he appear in what he knew was a discussion segment?); when she wouldn't move on without getting one, he promised that "I’m never coming back on this show ever again." Boo hoo.
On Wednesday's New Day, CNN host Alisyn Camerota repeatedly fretted over President Donald Trump attacking Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer for supporting the 1990 immigration law that helped Uzbekistan-born terrorist Sayfullo Saipov to get into the United States.
In the wake of the New York City truck attack, President Trump called on Congress to eliminate the Diversity Visa Lottery Program since the terrorist used the program to enter the United States in 2010. It was an idea that had bipartisan support in the past, but on Wednesday the broadcast networks claimed the President was exploiting a tragedy for political gain. Yet they themselves have a long history of doing just that after mass shootings.
While covering Republican efforts to reform the tax system and the health care industry, on Monday’s CBS This Morning, correspondent Major Garrett turned to Democrats to tear down both GOP agenda items, claiming the Trump administration tax plan was “angling to benefit the wealthy” and that the President “caved to conservatives” by maintaining his opposition to ObamaCare subsidies.
