Chuck Schumer was caught with his pants down and Republicans are furious

Every politician has had their embarrassing moments. But Chuck is wishing he could crawl under a rock.

Because he was just caught with his pants down and Republicans are furious.

Democrats are mercenaries at their core.

They will flip their beliefs in an instant if it means they will score brownie points with their base or leaders.

Sometimes, the leaders and the base disagree, and you have to choose one. The only way out is to face your own hypocrisy.

When Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) expressed support for Israel amid an Iranian drone and missile attack this weekend, his Republican colleagues promptly pointed out how the Democrat-led upper chamber had rejected legislation to offer aid to the U.S. ally.

“As Israel is under attack from Iran, we stand with Israel and its people, and the United States will do everything we can to support Israel’s defense against Iran,” Schumer said in a post to X on Saturday.

Multiple Republican senators responded by pointing out how the Senate opposed a House-passed bill that would have granted $14.3 billion in emergency help to Israel while cutting the same amount of cash for the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

“Good! [Schumer],” cried Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).

“Then let’s vote on Monday on the emergency military aid for Israel bill that YOU blocked! And every single Dem senator voted with you. Let’s make it 100-0, that we all stand united with Israel.”

Sen. Roger Marshall (R-KS), who joined Cruz and other Republicans in attempting to move the IRS offset measure in November but was blocked by Democrats, also criticized Schumer.

“We brought aid for Israel to the Senate floor FOUR TIMES since the unprovoked, brutal attacks on Oct 7th,” Marshall said, referring to the attacks by Hamas on Israel last fall.

“Chuck Schumer and Senate Democrats blocked our efforts every single time. Actions speak louder than words.”

Schumer pushed on with another plan that aims to offer help to Israel as well as other countries like Ukraine and Taiwan.

That plan, worth approximately $95 billion, cleared the Senate in February but has yet to be taken up by the Republican-controlled House.

“It’s been 163 days since [the House GOP] sent Chuck Schumer a standalone aid package to support our ally Israel. As the Biden White House appeases terrorists and undercuts Israel, Schumer is not just complicit, but has also refused to take up this aid package, emboldening Iran to unjustly attack Israel,” said Rep. Beth Van Duyne (R-TX).

“Senator Schumer, as sirens are sounding in Israel, when will you stop holding aid to Israel hostage to your petty politics?” she added.
