Chuck Schumer got his feelings hurt when President Trump tweeted he doesn’t see a deal with Democrats coming out of a WH meeting. Schumer wants surrender so he cancelled the

Democrats invariably attempt to use the guise of “bipartisanship” as a premise for a one-sided acquiescence to their positions on the part of gutless Republicans in Congress.
President Trump struck the first blow in the upcoming December battle over spending, immigration, the border and tax reform with a tweet he sent out ahead of a scheduled meeting on Tuesday with “Chuck and Nancy.”
President Trump tweeted, “Meeting with “Chuck and Nancy” today about keeping government open and working. Problem is they want illegal immigrants flooding into our Country unchecked, are weak on Crime and want to substantially RAISE Taxes. I don’t see a deal!”
President Trump’s words didn’t sit well with the conniving Democrats, who might have been hoping for another dose of preferential treatment from a White House visit. If the President isn’t going to surrender to their demands, they’ll attempt to cut him out of the process and go deal directly with the surrender-prone members of Congress, Ryan and McConnell in particular.
Scummy Chuck Schumer took to his favorite position for whining, the Senate lectern, to cry over the way he and Nancy had been treated by that “mean old President Trump.” Schumer said, “Unfortunately, this morning, instead of leading, the President tweeted a blatantly inaccurate statement and then concluded ‘I don’t see a deal.’”
The problem “Scummy Schumer” has with President Trump’s tweet is that it is actually the opposite, he was very accurate in his statement.
Schumer snarked, “Given that the President doesn’t see a deal between Democrats and the White House, Leader Pelosi and I believe the best path forward is to continue negotiating with our Republican counterparts in Congress instead.”
He continued, “Rather than going to the White House for a show meeting that won’t result in an agreement from a President who doesn’t see a deal, we’ve asked Leader McConnell and Speaker Ryan to meet with us this afternoon.” Schumer is lambasting the President for prejudging the meeting as he hypocritically describes it as a “show meeting.”
Schumer, in calling for Republicans to cut President Trump out of the process, labeled them as “actually interested in negotiating a bipartisan agreement.” Bipartisan is Democrat speak for Republican surrender, not a great endorsement of the leadership of either McConnell or Ryan.
Schumer goes on to threaten a government shutdown and fire a blame salvo at Republicans. Certainly there will be many more fired over the coming weeks.
