Chuck Schumer is committee to obstructing every aspect of the Trump agenda.
But he just went overboard.
That’s because in one speech he leveled a racist comment that left jaws on the ground.
One of the great successes of the Trump Presidency is the confirmation of conservative justices.
The senate was voting to confirm Marvin Quattlebaum to the U.S. District Court in South Carolina when Chuck Schumer rose to speak in opposition.
Schumer declared he could not support Quattlebaum because he was white.
The Daily Caller reports:
“The Democrat from New York said on the Senate floor that he could not vote to approve Marvin Quattlebaum for a vacancy on the U.S. District Court for the District of South Carolina because he is a white man replacing two black Obama nominees.
“The nomination of Marvin Quattlebaum speaks to the overall lack of diversity in President Trump’s selections for the federal judiciary,” Schumer complained. “Quattlebaum replaces not one, but two scuttled Obama nominees who were African American.”
“As of February 14th, 83 percent of the President Trump’s confirmed nominees were male, 92 percent were white. That represents the lowest share of non-white candidates in three decades,” he continued. “It’s long past time that the judiciary starts looking a lot more like the America it represents. Having a diversity of views and experiences on the federal bench is necessary for the equal administration of justice.”
This is lunacy.
Democrats – led by Chuck Schumer – are no longer evaluating nominees on their merits and qualifications.
Instead they are turning to racial quotas.
That is not the American way.
Talent and ability are supposed to win out.
