Rand Paul is exploding Chuck Schumer’s con on the American people.
Schumer wants the nation to think Donald Trump committed a crime with his language, despite the fact that Trump never encouraged or condoned violence.
But as Sen. Paul pointed out. Schumer did exactly that. “I think if we are going to criminalize speech and somehow impeach everybody who says, oh, go fight to hear your voices heard, really we ought to impeach Chuck Schumer then,” said Paul. “He went to the Supreme Court, stood in front of the Supreme Court, and said specifically, hey Gorsuch, hey Kavanaugh, you’ve unleashed a whirlwind, and you’re going to pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you continue with these awful decisions.”
Then Paul dropped a bombshell:
This inflammatory wording, this violent rhetoric of Chuck Schumer was so bad that the chief justice, who rarely says anything publicly, immediately said this kind of language is dangerous as a mob tried to invade the Supreme Court,” he continued. “So if people want to hold President Trump accountable for language, there has to be a consistent standard, and to my mind, it’s a partisan farce because they’re not doing anything to Chuck Schumer, not doing anything to Representative Omar, not doing anything to Maxine Waters. It’s just not fair. It’s just partisan politics under a different name.
And Paul is right. The Democrats have been using inflammatory wording for years, but now that they are upset about something, they are grasping at the wind to complain about Trump’s words.
