Sen. Chuck Schumer Just Turned On His Own Party and Threw Clinton Under the Bus!
You know it’s getting bad when the vultures are eating each other!
One of the “leaders” in a rather leaderless Democrat party is Chuck Schumer.
And he just threw his fellow democrats, and especially Hillary Clinton, under the bus. Oops! It looks like things are not well in Dem land!
I love it! It’s a feeding frenzy in the Dem camp, and it’s going to lead to a clean sweep for Trump and the Republics in 2018! Can you imagine how great it will be when we have 70% of the Senate? 😊
Here is the story, from the DailyMail:
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said that Democrats can only blame themselves, not Russia, for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s loss to President Donald Trump in November.
“When you lose to somebody who has 40 percent popularity, you don’t blame other things – Comey, Russia – you blame yourself,” Schumer told The Washington Post Saturday.
Schumer, previewing the Democratic Party’s campaign message heading into 2018, admitted that people are not sure what the party stands for.
“So what did we do wrong? People didn’t know what we stood for, just that we were against Trump. And still believe that,” Schumer explained. The Democratic Party’s plan for 2018 is titled, “A Better Deal” and is meant to contrast the president’s economic message.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who faced a challenge from Ohio Democratic Rep. Tim Ryan for her leadership position earlier this year, agreed with Schumer. Pelosi told WaPo, in a separate interview, that the new slogan was not part of a course correction, but rather a “presentation correction.”
Rust-belt Democrats have sparred with their coastal-counterparts over the future of the Democratic Party. Ryan and others have argued that Democrats must return to an economic message that appeals to working class voters and marginalized groups.
Schumer said that the new agenda is not about partisan politics.
