Schumer Responds to McConnell, Issues Faux Apology for Attack on SCOTUS

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has been at the forefront of the news cycle Wednesday and Thursday after he outright threatened two Associate Justices of the Supreme Court Wednesday at a rally in support of abortion rights. 

Senate Republicans rightfully ripped Sen. Schumer’s vicious attack on our judicial institution on the Senate Floor Thursday morning.

Sen. Schumer responded:

“I am angry, the women of America are angry. And yes, we will continue to fight for a woman’s right to choose,” Schumer said on the floor.

Sen. Schumer backhandedly apologized for his sentiments at the Supreme Court, but did not fully own up to his attack on Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh:

“My point was that there would be political consequences for POTUS and Senate GOP if their newly appointed justices stripped a woman’s right to choose.”

The minority leader admitted that he should not have used the words he did, but then contended that he was “in no way making a threat,” and flipped the situation onto Senate Republicans, accusing the majority of “manufacturing outrage.”

Sen. Schumer finished his floor speech by falsely characterizing abortion rights as enshrined in the Constitution:

“We have an obligation to the women of America to fight for their constitutional right to choose,” he said.
