Now this is amusing. From the Washington Post:
Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) privately urged President Trump in a phone call earlier this week to nominate federal Judge Merrick B. Garland, then President Barack Obama’s third nominee to the Supreme Court who was summarily shunned by Senate Republicans in 2016, to replace retiring Justice Anthony M. Kennedy.
Trump had called Schumer on Tuesday afternoon for a Supreme Court-centered conversation that lasted less than five minutes, according to a person familiar with the call. Schumer, the person said, pressed the president to name Garland to succeed Kennedy, arguing doing so would help unite the country.
Unite the country? I don’t think so.
This is Chuck’s plan to keep every Republican home on Election Day 2018 and 2020. That the phone call lasted less than five minutes, I assume, is a sign Trump got a good laugh over this and went on to the next thing.
All of this, of course, presupposes that Schumer isn’t in the early stages of dementia, which if he is, certainly would not be a laughing matter.
