How Frantic Are the Dems?

We hit a new low in Fake News spin from the AP today.  I came across an article under a headline announcing the Senator Schumer had "WARNED" Senate Republicans not to change the Senate rules.  That's truly funny since it was the Democrats with Schumer as their deputy leader who changed the same rule four years ago so that all other nominees could no longer be filibustered.  Still, the best line in the whole article is this one:

"Although such a change might seem procedural or obscure, it is known on Capitol Hill as the "nuclear option" because it would amount to a dramatic departure from Senate norms of bipartisanship and collegiality."

Bipartisanship and collegiality??????   Really???  I actually laughed out loud when I read this.

Schumer and his fellow Democrats have been opposing every move made by the GOP and President Trump and every nomination made by Trump.  It's the last day of March, and we still have cabinet officials who have not yet received even a vote in the Senate as a result of blatant partisanship from the Democrats.  And as for collegiality, how many times did we hear Schumer accuse Republicans of being "terrorists" or "hostage takers" or some other name in the last four years?  The answer is too many times to count.

The idea that the senate Democrats and their allies in the mainstream media can still push lies like the "Senate norms of bipartisanship and collegiality" is ridiculous.  The whole article is Fake News.  It's a lie.  The senators know it's a lie.  The reporters know it's a lie.  But for the Democrat/media complex, spouting Fake News is just politics as usual.
