Senator Chuck Schumer is leading the Democrat obstruction that’s holding up the confirmation of Trump’s remaining team members.
He says its all about principle. But he didn’t always think this way.
Back in 2013 when Obama was president, he sang a very different tune.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Did Chuck Schumer think we’d just forget about 2013?
Thanks to Google, there’s no such thing as the memory hole. Just about everything is neatly archived on the Internet forever, including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s hypocritical political record on presidential nominees.
Schumer might insist Democrats are just acting as a constitutional check on the administration by slowing executive nominees. But a quick search shows he once decried what he’s now embracing.
Four years ago, Obama had just won a second term, Democrats controlled the Senate, and Schumer was getting annoyed with Republicans. “Just about everyone in America—Democrat, Republican, liberal, conservative—believe that once you elect a president,” Schumer said, “he deserves his choices to run the executive branch.”
Watch the video:
Back then, obstructing a president’s ability to pick his team was a big problem. Now obstructing Trump’s team is perfectly fine.
Everything is different when Democrats do it.
If it weren’t for double standards, the left wouldn’t have any.
