Photo of Chuck Schumer Eating Doughnuts With Putin Posted Online, Immediately Goes Viral

Sen. Chuck Schumer was one of the Democrats in Congress who had a nuclear meltdown after President Trump held his recent press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin, delivering a little huff and puff on the Senate floor on Tuesday.

Well, as it turns out, there’s a photo of Schumer getting chummy with Putin over some tasty breakfast treats that’s now going viral on the Internet, serving to undermine his faux indignation against Trump.

“I’m from Brooklyn,” the New York Democart said on the Senate floor on Tuesday. “We learned one thing there, if we learned anything: when there’s a bully around, as Putin is, you show strength. But President Trump showed abject weakness. You know what that means? The bully will continue to take advantage of him. If President Trump was such an easy mark in Helsinki, President Putin will realize he’s an easy mark elsewhere.”

The two met in New York City in 2003, with Schumer welcoming the leader as Russian oil company Lukoil opened a gas station in Manhattan, NTK reports.

The AP photo shows Putin and Schumer smiling, with coffee and Krispy Kreme doughnuts. The caption reads:

Russian President Vladimir Putin, right, enjoys a Krispy Kreme doughnut and coffee with Senator Charles Schumer from New York as Putin visits the first New York gas station of the Russian company Lukoil, Friday.

Schumer also said that day:

“When I showed the president of Russia a Krispy Kreme doughnut and he ate it and said it was good, that was one of the more surreal moments I’ve had in politics.”

In 2008, Schumer buddied up with Putin, writing in an op-ed for The Wall Street Journal — headlined “Russia Can Be Part of the Answer on Iran​” — that Putin could help in negotiations.

As you might imagine, Twitter had a field day with this.

The hypocrisy of the left has now been put on full display in so many different, unique, and creative ways it’s impossible not to take notice of it. Doesn’t saying one thing and doing another sort of turn off prospects from joining your party or causes?

That’s true for the vast majority of people, however Democrats tend to draw out their own, so folks who are already inconsistent in their beliefs flock to the party, joy filling their blackened hearts.

If Schumer truly has a problem with Putin and with Trump’s association with him, he needs to take some time to address this photo and the other connections he personally has to him if he has any hope of being taken seriously.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
