“Hopefully, now the president has learned his lesson.”

Those are the mocking words of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY).

Is this the best strategy, though?

From Daily Wire:

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer mocked President Donald Trump on Friday immediately after the president ended the government shutdown so non-essential federal employees could get paid and so both of the nation’s major parties could work on a deal to fund border security.

Schumer noted, “The American people do not like it when you throw a wrench into the lives of government workers over an unrelated political dispute. Working people throughout America empathized with the federal workers and were aghast at what the president was doing to them. Hopefully, now the president has learned his lesson.

Now, once the president signs the continuing resolution, we in Congress will roll up our sleeves and try to find some agreement on border security. Today the president will sign the bill to reopen the government along the outlines of what we have proposed and hopefully it means a lesson learned for the White House and for many of our Republican colleagues: Shutting down the government over a policy difference is self-defeating.

It accomplishes nothing but pain and suffering for the country and incurs an enormous political cost to the party shutting it down.

WATCH:

By agreeing to reopen the government, Trump has not ended his campaign to build a wall on America’s southern border.

WATCH:

Trump noted, “I wish people would read or listen to my words on the Border Wall. This was in no way a concession. It was taking care of millions of people who were getting badly hurt by the Shutdown with the understanding that in 21 days, if no deal is done, it’s off to the races!”

Here’s the tweet:

Press Secretary Sarah Sanders elaborated:

In 21 days President @realDonaldTrump is moving forward building the wall with or without the Democrats. The only outstanding question is whether the Democrats want something or nothing

Trump’s speech:

Liberals lost their minds because the New York Times had the audacity to fact check Schumer during his rebuttal to a recent Trump’s speech.

They can’t take it when their side gets called out.

Here’s the NYT tweet:

Annnndddd the meltdowns:

Schumer and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) lived up to the hype.

Twitter noticed.

In short, the Democrat “leaders” put on a creepy performance.

Save conservative media!

Watchdog Group Says Trump Broke The Law By Withholding Aid From Ukraine

Published

on

The U.S. government’s congressional watchdog has determined that President Trump and his administration are guilty of breaking the law by withholding hundreds of millions of dollars of military aid from Ukraine during the summer of 2019. The Government Accountability Office published a nine-page report on Thursday that concluded the Officer of Management and Budget violated the Impoundment Control Act when it refused to release $214 million set aside as aide to Ukraine. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “Faithful execution of the law does not permit the President to substitute his own policy priorities for those that Congress has enacted into law,” the independent legislative branch agency concluded. “The Office of Management and Budget withheld funds for a policy reason, which is not permitted under the Impoundment Control Act. The withholding was not a programmatic delay. Therefore, we conclude that the Office of Management and Budget violated the Impoundment Control Act.” The determination comes the same day that the impeachment trial against President Trump related to allegations of abuse of power in Ukraine is set to kick off in the Senate. “The Constitution grants the President no unilateral authority to withhold funds from obligation,” the Government Accountability Office said. “Instead, Congress has vested the President with strictly circumscribed authority to impound, or withhold, budget authority only in limited circumstances as expressly provided in the Impoundment Control Act.” How much this information will impact the impeachment trial remains to be seen, but it’s definitely not going to make matters any easier for President Trump going forward.

Republican Senator Attacks CNN Reporter; Calls Him A ‘Liberal Hack’

Published

on

Sen. Martha McSally proved in a recent spat with a CNN reporter that she is not the kind of individual you want to mess with. McSally was asked about recent developments that have been unfolding would make her change her mind about impeaching President Trump. To say the answer was a resounding no would be an understatement. McSally ripped into the reporter calling him a “liberal hack.” Someone’s been taking lessons on counterpunching from President Trump. Check out the details from The Washington Examiner: On Wednesday night, Rudy Giuliani’s Ukrainian associate Lev Parnas claimed that “Trump knew” about all of the shady efforts taking place in Ukraine, including the alleged stalking of U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch. Parnas said, “President Trump knew exactly what was going on. He was aware of all my movements. I wouldn’t do anything without the consent of Rudy Giuliani or the president.” On Thursday morning, CNN reporter Manu Raju tried to ask the Arizona Republican about the developments and how it could change her impeachment vote. He asked, “Senator McSally, should the Senate consider new evidence as part of the impeachment trial.” She responded, “Manu, you’re a liberal hack. I’m not talking to you.” Raju followed up, “You’re not going to comment.” McSally brushed him off and echoed her earlier retort of calling him a “liberal hack.” https://twitter.com/mkraju/status/1217822020848771074 McSally went on to double down on her claim about Manu being a liberal hack in a video posted to Twitter: https://twitter.com/SenMcSallyAZ/status/1217829609808547841 Well, she’s not wrong. Perhaps Manu is still in the first step of denial about the role he is playing in the modern media? Regardless, he certainly got served by McSally, extra crispy on both sides.
