Chuck Schumer leads the Democrats *because* he isn’t a leader. Jimmy Dore, Steve Oh, Stef Zamorano, and Malcolm Fleschner, hosts of Aggressive Progressives, discuss.
“In the latest episode of the Senate Minority Leader embarrassing himself, Chuck Schumer reportedly called President Donald Trump and asked him to nominate Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court “as a way to unify the country.” Schumer, seemingly waking from a decades-long slumber to pontificate on 2018 politics, warned that there would be “cataclysmic” consequences of another arch conservative hostile to the Affordable Care Act and Roe v. Wade and that it would tear the country apart—an almost hilariously senseless non-appeal to Trump’s most basic political instincts.
The Twitter account for the Senate Committee of Mitch McConnell—who long ago napalmed any appearance of unity by blocking President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court nomination of Merrick Garland—responded to Schumer’s appeal with a GIF of Michael Jordan laughing. Meanwhile, Trump nominated hardcore conservative federal appeals court judge Brett Kavanaugh, vetted by Leonard Leo of the right-wing law activist group, the Federalist Society.”*
