Trump Honors Schumer With a New Moniker - "Fake Tears" — The Beltway Times


Thursday 57°47°F

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer earned a new moniker this morning from President Donald Trump after Schumer cried while criticizing Trump’s travel ban. In an early morning tweet, Trump referred to him as “Fake Tears Chuck Schumer.”

Last night, Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi led a protest on the steps of the Supreme Court against Trump’s travel ban. They were unable to get the microphone to work during the protest, so Pelosi made several awkward statements, then led the crowd in singing “This Land is Your Land.” The hilariously embarrassing video can be seen on the Fox News website here.

On Monday, Trump expressed doubts about the sincerity of Schumer’s tears while speaking about the travel ban. Trump said “I noticed Chuck Schumer yesterday with fake tears. I’m going to ask him who is his acting coach. I know him very well. I don’t see him as a crier. If he is, he’s a different man. There’s about a 5% chance that it was real, but I think they were fake tears.” NBC posted a video of Trump’s unsentimental and candid reaction to Schumer’s fake tears.

Trump also vented his frustration on Twitter this morning about the delays in approving his cabinet nominees.
