Nearly daily demonstrations from the left against President Donald Trump’s agenda and protests on college campuses against conservative speakers have become predictable.
But why would liberals protest Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer?
Apparently, he’s not doing enough to resist Trump and conservatives.
Roughly 3,000 demonstrators gathered outside Schumer’s apartment building in Brooklyn on Jan. 31, some carrying signs reading “Resist Trump” and “Show Some Spine Schumer”, the New York Post reported.
“Sen. Schumer needs to know we’re watching him,” fumed Brad Wolchansky, of Flatbush who was carrying a cardboard cutout of a giant eye. “He works for us. We need him to be bold. We need him to stand up to Trump and oppose his picks.”
Dara Barr, a 40-year-old acupuncturist from the East Village, told The Post she felt it was time for Schumer to crack the whip on the Democratic caucus — so she brought a black leather whip from home to make her point.
“I’m trying to whip Chuck Schumer into shape so he can whip those ‘no’ votes,” Barr said.
Schumer has said he would oppose at least eight of Trump’s cabinet nominees, but he has already voted “yes” on Gen. James Mattis for the Department of Defense, Gen. John Kelly for the Department of Homeland Security and Mike Pompeo for the CIA.
Schumer is “talking the talk on social media, but is he walking the walk?” said Cambra Moniz-Edwards, 35, of Brooklyn. “What the f–k, Chuck?!”
