Chuck Schumer DESTROYS Trump After Donald Called Him ‘Head Clown’ (TWEET)


On Tuesday morning, Donald Trump unleashed another odious volley of tweets, this time attacking Democrats in congress, as well as minority leader Chuck Schumer. But Schumer wouldn’t be torn down, and stuck up for himself in the classiest way possible. In the process, he put The Donald squarely in his place.

In another one of his early morning Twitter rants, Trump went straight for the jugular, calling Senate minority leader Schumer a “clown,” and mocking Democrats in the Senate over Obamacare.

Schumer’s retort came in the form of comments he made during a press conference. He advised the President-elect to get off Twitter and start putting forward actual solutions to the problems facing the country. He also reminded Trump that Obamacare solved serious healthcare-related problems for millions of Americans, and taking it away without a solid plan would be a disaster. He told the assembled reporters;

‘I’d say to president-elect that this is serious, serious stuff. People’s health is at stake, people’s lives are at stake. Now, we understand that President-elect Trump is in a difficult spot, that Republicans are in a difficult spot. They want to repeal the ACA, and they have no idea how to replace it.’

Schumer reminded everyone that the GOP’s “solution” to the problems the ACA has have been limited entirely to a full repeal. He also was quick to add that Trump has offered exactly nothing in the way of solutions of his own, and, like many of his GOP brethren, has restricted his commentary on the controversial measure to spouting off about how horrible it is instead of helpful criticism.

‘Instead of calling names, [Trump] should roll up his sleeves and show us a replacement plan that will cover the 20 million Americans who gained coverage, that will cover students or post-college students, 21 to 26, who want to stay on their parents plan, that will show how we cover people with pre-existing conditions. So I’d say to the president-elect and the Republicans that this is not a time for calling names. It’s time for them to step up if they want to repeal, and show us what they replace it with.’

The ACA is far from a perfect piece of legislation. But after many separate Supreme Court decisions, it’s likely here to stay for a bit. The GOP needs to grow up and learn to cooperate instead of keeping up this temper tantrum for another 4 years.
