Over the weekend Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer was on the verge of tears as he condemned President Trump’s travel ban on a select few Muslim nations known for terrorist activity. He obviously has Alzheimers or some other memory-reducing brain disorder because just 2 years ago he was all for a very similar plan to stop terrorist from entering America.
In response to Trump’s executive order banning travel from 7 terrorist hotspots, Schumer vowed to fight it “with every fiber” of his being and then tweeted out this:
There are tears running down the cheeks of the Statue of Liberty tonight. pic.twitter.com/X6q40dMCsN

“There are tears running down the cheeks of the Statue of Liberty tonight.” wrote Schumer.
That is quite a change from this tweet Schumer sent out in 2015:
We must tighten loopholes in the Visa Waiver prgm, ensure passports can’t be faked & stop terrorists who want to exploit the system.

“We must tighten loopholes in the Visa Waiver prgm, ensure passports can’t be faked & stop terrorists who want to exploit the system,” Schumer wrote.
Well gosh, that’s pretty much what Trump is doing with his temporary travel ban, isn’t it? The President is tightening the loopholes to make sure we know who is coming into our country and ensuring that terrorists don’t exploit the system. I wonder why it’s making Schumer and the Statue of Liberty cry now, but a couple of years ago it was a great idea. If I didn’t know better, I’d say Chuck Schumer and all of his liberal buddies are completely full of shit.
The fact remains that Obama issued a similar travel ban on Muslims during his presidency and that the list of countries is based on the Obama administration’s threat assessment. The butthurt feeling liberals have had since Hillary Clinton lost the election have turned into a blind rage of opposition to anything Donald Trump does. If he he ties his shoes, suddenly tying shoes is an act of fascism. If he orders a Coke with lunch, only racists drink Coke.
For his part, Trump responded to Schumer’s crying with his own series of tweets:
“Only 109 people out of 325,000 were detained and held for questioning. Big problems at airports were caused by Delta computer outage, protesters and the tears of Senator Schumer. Secretary Kelly said that all is going well with very few problems. MAKE AMERICA SAFE AGAIN!” Trump wrote.
And Fox News reports:
He later doubled down on his criticism of Schumer, telling reporters after a White House meeting with small business owners that he thought “there’s about a 5 percent chance [the tears were] real.”
“I noticed Chuck Schumer yesterday with fake tears. I’m going to ask him who is his acting coach,” said Trump.
It’s not acting, liberals really are this full of shit. Not that democrats had any credibility before, but this irrational opposition to everything Trump does or says is exposing them for the frauds they are. Chuck Schumer literally supported the exact same thing Trump just did, but now that it’s coming from him the liberals are outraged. It doesn’t get any more bullshit than that.
