Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s threat towards the two SCOTUS Justices was widely condemned by both the right and the left.
Even Chief Justice Roberts weighed in calling the threats by Senator Schumer(D-NY) not just “inappropriate” but “dangerous.”
Senator Schumer didn’t apologize even after the Chief Justice condemned his statements, even though he was advocating for Chief Justice Roberts to speak up just last month when President Trump was critical of the judge overseeing the clown show that was the Roger Stone hearing.
Chuck Schumer, Feb. 13th 2020:
"Trump's attacks on the judiciary are dangerous. Chief Justice Roberts needs to speak up."
Chuck Schumer, Mar. 4th 2020:
To Kavanaugh & Gorsuch, “You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these decisions”
What changed, Chuck?

If Democrats didn’t have double standards, they wouldn’t have any standards at all.
On Thursday morning, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell(R-KY) read the shocking words into the Congressional record.
It’s a thing of beauty.
The Senate Majority Leader condemns the comments stating that we live in divisive times and it seems to be a pattern of behavior for Democrats. It’s incredibly dangerous at a time when a leftwing political nut shot at Republicans on a baseball field simply for being Republicans.

If the 8-minute clip is too long, here’s the TL;DR version….
Cocaine Mitch exposes just how awful the Senate Minority Leader’s comments were — they were clearly threats against the two Associate Justices. It wasn’t the first one, either. Senate Democrats had sent a threatening letter to the Supreme Court last summer.

This threat came from a senior leader in a party that wants to change the Supreme Court by changing the number of justices, removing the lifetime appointment, or effing up the court in other ways because it’s not giving them exactly what they want.

The Senate Minority Leader responded without exactly apologizing, stating that he is passionate about a woman’s right to an abortion and then says that Republicans are “manufacturing outrage.”

I see he’s taking his cue from Politico:
The Democratic front-runner has a phrase that is a perfect response to Senator Schumer’s “blame the Republicans” nonsense.
