With a lack of political awareness that would seem difficult to obtain and dangerous to possess, Chuck Schumer (D-NY) expressed what is almost certainly fake outrage that over 75 million Americans would vote for Donald Trump, whom he characterized as a “vile” man. It was the typical bleating and whining, dispensed in equal parts mistruth and pandering.
It was at a community meeting with members of Roosevelt Island and the Upper East Side in New York State earlier today, with assembly member Rebecca Seawright by his side, that Schumer made the ridiculous comments.

In a video that is making the rounds across media, Schumer repeated the same tired and oft-falsified tropes by stating that “[Trump] is dishonest, divisive. That’s what he loves to do. Just divide and have people fighting with each other. He’s a racist,” Schumer claimed. “And he always appeals to the dark side of human nature.” In true-to-Democrat form, Schumer doesn’t (because he can’t) offer one piece of evidence to suggest that Trump is a racist. Schumer seems to ascribe to the belief that is raging through the Democratic Party like a wildfire, that a racist is simply someone whom you call a racist.
This unremarkable and boring rhetoric has been a bedrock trope on which many Democrats have laid their linguistic foundations. Earlier this year, the clownish and risible figure of Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (MI-13) referred to then-President Trump as “racist-in-chief“, while calling for the eventually unsuccessful impeachment of Trump.
Ever eager to join the bandwagon of mediocre platitudes, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA 12th District), back in 2019, referred to Trump’s recent string of tweets as “racist” . She did this, by the way, on the floor of the House! Apparently there was nothing more pressing going on that day.
However, it could well end up being the case that boring, albeit annoying rhetoric such as this could be the final straw for Republicans as they gear up to retake the House in 2022.
