Schumer Apologizes After Controversial Supreme Court Remarks

Personally Thank President Trump Today

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) ignited a firestorm yesterday over his naked aggression directed at Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.

New York’s senior senator told Gorsuch and Kavanaugh that “you will pay the price” and “you won’t know what hit you” if they rule against reproductive rights.

That prompted a stern rebuke from Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, who called Schumer’s remarks “dangerous.”

Schumer’s office fired back, claiming that Roberts had deliberately misinterpreted what Schumer said while remaining silent when President Trump chastised liberal Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg last week.

This unprecedented exchange highlights how poisoned the relationship between the executive, legislative, and judicial branches has become.

Now, in a moment of lucidity, even Senator Schumer is apologizing.

Per the Los Angeles Times:

Speaking on the Senate floor, Schumer said his words “didn’t come out the way I intended to.”

“My point was that there would be political consequences for President Trump and Senate Republicans if the Supreme Court, with the newly confirmed justices, stripped away a woman’s right to choose,” he said. He added: “I’m from Brooklyn. We speak in strong language.”

A clip of Schumer’s speech circulated on social media and was condemned by conservatives, including President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell who on Thursday said the words “at the very best…were astonishingly reckless and irresponsible” and “clearly…dangerous.”

“It has almost been a century since the last time Democrats threatened to pack the Supreme Court because they wanted different rulings. History still judges that disgraceful episode to this day,” McConnell said. “So I would suggest that my Democratic colleagues spend less time trying to threaten impartial judges, and more time coming up with ideas that are actually constitutional.”

In response to Schumer, Chief Justice John Roberts said, “All members of the court will continue to do their job, without fear or favor, from whatever quarter.”

Schumer can apologize all he wants, he meant what he said and the lawsuit that was before the supreme court was not taking any rights away from women, it was hearing a case that mandated the doctors in clinics doing abortions, have hospital admitting privledges so when something happens he can admit them without er visits and other logistics. Is it really that difficult to get hospital priviledges and do you really want a doctor doing a surgical procedure on you that can cost you your reproductive future and not have the required CME credits and credentials to even admit patients to a hospital. I wouldn’t.

Schumer has nothing to worry about. The Trump Administration has prosecuted Republican political operatives but has not indicted a single Democrat in three years. They know it and act accordingly.

I think Schumer needs to take a lesson in Constitutional law. We live in a republic, not a democracy. Checks and balances have enabled our country to endure and evolve. We survived a Civil War because of the Founding Fathers wisdom and that document. He should not have said what he said. It was inflammatory rhetoric. It is the rhetoric that causes people who wear MAGA hats to be attacked.
Did he even understand the facts of the case? If an abortion doctor jacks you up, they have to have privileges to admit you to a hospital. Otherwise, they cannot practice. Where will you go? To ER by the homie ambulance? CJ Roberts was right to say something.
You don’t go after the Supremes!

Well said Lindita. May you live well, in peace while being brave. May threats never work against anyone regardless of wealth, sex, color or any other attribute.

The easy way to explain the difference between what the Pres. said & what schumer said is that schumer is trying to explain that what he said was not meant to be a threat ( because it did sound like a threat). What the Pres. said sounded like a complaint ( which it was)…not like a threat ( which it wasn’t).

Well said Star. Since Schumer is against protecting patients he is against protecting us against all enemies foreign and domestic. He should be impeached immediately.

I was born in Brooklyn, and yes we do speak in a strong language. The difference is that we ALWAYS mean exactly that which we say, and don’t apologize!
I am still saddened by the fact that Chuckie still claims to be a Brooklynite. Weak!

He should be removed from Congress. He did not really apologize and he meant the threat he made to Gorsuch and Kavenaugh. This is the example for the Dems, no wonder this country is in the state it is. Notice how democrats are the ones who get violent and angry and threatening always.

CHUCK SCHUMER IS A NASTY HATE-FILLED JEW WHO HATES ANY REPUBLICAN, A TYPICAL. He would rather see Trump and the Republicans eviscerated than to see the US prosper. Notice that 3 out of 4 who have lied consistently about Trump are Jews (Democrats), and the other is a mental case Italian who hates Trump with all her strength, (whatever she has left) who will never give an inch to any Republican, no matter how much it moves the US forward. I grew up in the south when the Democrats owned it. Even as a teenager I realized their hatred of black people as many were lynched by the other arm of the Democrat party, the KKK. (I am not black, rather my grandmother was full blooded Creek Indian.)
They are more bold now than ever, especially since most of the Democrat party is now run by socialist/communists.

What does it matter that he apologized. His purpose was served. He used the media to make his lying accusations and now that his words are out there, he doesn’t care if he had to make that apology.
He is pure trash. A real SCHMUCK politician who would lie to his own mother, while she was on her deathbed.
He is what’s wrong with our political system, being a CAREER POLITICIAN betraying his constituents and all Americans during his years of backdoor dealings with lobbyists, with the sole purpose of stuffing his bank accounts with payoffs. He could care less about honor, morality, truth or patriotism.
The sooner he is voted out or, better yet, arrested and charged for is many crimes against the American people – the better.

There are no words I can use to express how angry I am that there has been no effort to remove Schumer from the Senate for his threats to members of the court. Are you telling us that his pitiful explanation is going to be accepted? Good Lord you guys, what is it going to take for you to get some guts? Censure, my rear end. He should be EXPELLED.

When are we going to begin arresting Democrats for committing crimes?! This very questionable person was clearly calling for Maxine-Waters-type mass action against these men.

This is, inn both cases, called “inciting to riot,” and it’s illegal.

Or is anything actually illegal for a Democrat lawmaker with a mouth and a following?

Of course you realize that if any of us who aren’t the special people ever made such a statement, the Secret Service would’ve had us on the ground, tied up in knots, and on our way to jail. It doesn’t pay to be plebe!

As usual, the weasel blamed the Conservatives for not understanding what he said.
A DEMONRAT NEVER speaks the truth.
A DEMONRAT NEVER admits the truth.
A DEMONRAT NEVER apologizes, EVER.
The DEMONRATS are so predictable: they are EVIL personified.
