Schumer Refuses to Meet Trump’s SCOTUS Pick

In a major act of political foot-stomping Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer is refusing to meet with President Trump’s Supreme Court Nominee, Amy Coney Barrett.

According to The Hill:

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said on Tuesday that he will not meet with Judge Amy Coney Barrett, President Trump‘s third Supreme Court pick.

Democrats are weighing whether to meet with Barrett as she begins her Capitol Hill outreach on Tuesday, where she is scheduled to meet with several Republican senators including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.).

Two Democrats on the Judiciary Committee — Sens. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) — said over the weekend that they won’t meet with her. But Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) indicated on Sunday that he wanted to.

“It’s my intention to do so … I’m going to make it very clear. One of the things I want to ask her is will she recuse herself in terms of any election issues that come before us, because if she does not recuse herself, I fear that the court will be further delegitimized,” Booker told “Meet the Press” when asked if he would meet with Barrett.

The meetings between the nominee and the Senators are not required but have become part of the normal procedures in these situations.

Capt — my thinking is that this idiot booker thinks he can intimidate her into agreeing to recuse herself from some cases. He is just going to make a complete fool of himself(AGAIN) !!!!!!

And she’s gonna look him dead in the eye and tell him, ‘Spartacus, please, recuse myself from what, you’re butt hurt? Nothing in the Constitution that saves you from that, so move along now, real work to be done here…’.

All joking aside, I would dearly love to be in the room for that conversation, as I’m sure a woman of her intelligence and stature would have a great response for that type of individual. Let’s face it, Cory is far from the sharpest knife in the drawer, and the woman he’s going up against is a Ginsu.

I almost feel sorry for him. Almost….

The POS scumbag schumer is afraid to meet with her because she is way out of his league. He will not be able to make empty threats to her, he will not be able to rattle her and he will definitely be at an intellectual disadvantage. He is proving just what a ton of us have known for a long time– he is gutless.

Shouldn’t Cory Booker be in prison by now for that cocaine induced, homosexual murder a couple years ago? He doesn’t get to decide what cases a Supreme Court Justice hears, and she only starts returning the court to being a legitimate one again, after years of socialists abusing their position, making policies, and violating the Constitution. I’m sure he thinks butt hurt feelings of a panzy are more important than facts, and the law, though.

Ms. Barrett make no commitment to recluse on anything with any politician. No need to do so, you will be selected anyway. And the job is not to be involved in politics but to rule on the law and just the law. Booker is obviously an idiot like others who does not understand what a real judge does.

What a rude bastard Schummer is. He knows she’s perfect for the job. Quit trying to destroy people just because you didn’t get it your way.
