Presenting Tricky
Senator Charles E. Schumer

February 19, 2017 --

The fiercely anti-Trump Senator Charles E. Schumer wrote an opinion piece for the fiercely anti-Trump New York Times, February 12, expressing great annoyance that the president’s nominee to the Supreme Court, Judge Neil M. Gorsuch, refused to tell the senator that he would rule on cases according to leftist wishes.

This, of course, is the import of the tricky senator’s comments. Specifically, the senior New York senator and Senate Democrat leader pretended to agree that “a judicial nominee should not prejudge how he or she would rule in a specific case to come before the court…” And then the tricky senator said he asked Judge Gorsuch “whether an unambiguous Muslim ban would be constitutional.”

The tricky Schumer is apparently annoyed that the judge would not answer that improper question, nor would the nominee agree with the tricky senator’s apparent views that the “Citizens United” ruling should be overturned and that the president is threatening to “undermine our democracy.”

LPR to Tricky Senator Schumer: just go and vote against the nomination and cut the trickiness.

And by the way, in his column, “We Won’t Be Fooled Again, the tricky Senate Democratic leader claimed that as nominee to the Court, Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. “duped” Mr. Schumer into believing he would be “unbiased by both ideology and politics,” when, according to the tricky senator, Justice Roberts had ruled to shift “the power structure toward the privileged and away from the average American.”

Tricky Senator Schumer slams the chief justice by unwarranted attack; now what about the chief justice’s ruling in favor of Obamacare?
