Chuck Schumer just let out desperate he really is to retain some level of political relevance.
In an interview with The Washington Post, the slumping New York senator threw Hillary Clinton under the bus.
“When you lose to somebody who has 40 percent popularity, you don’t blame other things — Comey, Russia — you blame yourself,” said Schumer of Clinton’s defeat at the hands of Donald Trump. “So what did we do wrong? People didn’t know what we stood for, just that we were against Trump. And still believe that.”
Now, that’s quite the admission given that Schumer’s been right there along with the rest of the Democratic leadership alleging Russian intervention in Trump’s election.
It’s also quite the act of betrayal by Schumer, considering he was among Hillary’s staunchest supporters during the campaign.
The Democratic ship is sinking. Most rats are scurrying to get off. Expect those that remain to increasingly cannibalize one another as they desperately cling to any scrap of relevance.
