Chuck Schumer Still Doesn’t Understand Elections Have Consequences

Fresh off his loss at trying to stop the confirmation of Justice Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, U.S. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is once again showing he doesn’t understand one important fact in politics—elections have consequences.

Now Schumer is criticizing President Donald Trump for plans to appoint constitutionally minded judges to lower federal courts.

“With this first slate of lower court nominees, it seems that the president is intent on continuing to outsource the judicial selection process to hard-right special interest groups rather than consulting with senators on a bipartisan basis,” Schumer said in a statement. “The president should work with members of both parties to pick judges from within the judicial mainstream, who will interpret the law rather than make it.”

Here’s the deal, Sen. Schumer: Americans elected Trump to do just what he is doing, including starting to balance the courts against the activist liberal judges appointed by Barack Obama. You lost. ‘Nuff sad.
