Schumer Shreds Trump: ‘He Is the Worst President Ever’

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) is not holding back on his thoughts about former President Donald Trump and his upcoming impeachment trial in the Senate.

Schumer spoke with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow where he said the nation can be unified by “truth and accountability.”

“I don’t think you can just say, ‘Never mind,’ with some of the egregious things Trump has done,” he said. However, he added that it should not “be our number one concern.”

The Democratic senator later said, “You can’t just sweep some of these egregious things under the rug. Plain and simple.”

He called Trump’s act on Jan. 6 — the day pro-Trump protesters stormed the U.S. Capitol — the “most despicable thing any president has ever done.”

“He is the worst president ever,” Schumer declared.

Watch Schumer’s interview below:

The House of Representatives voted to impeach Trump for the second time, charging him with “incitement of insurrection.”

Trump previously called the impeachment efforts “absolutely ridiculous” and suggested “it’s causing tremendous danger to our country.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said at a press conference on Thursday, “The fact is the president of the United States committed an act of incitement of insurrection. I don’t think it’s very unifying to say, ‘Oh, let’s just forget it and move on.'”

“That’s not how you unify,” Pelosi added. “Joe Biden said it beautifully, ‘If we’re going to unite, you must remember,’ and we must, we must bring this. And look, that’s our responsibility, to uphold the integrity of the Congress of the United States.”

House Democrats sent the article of impeachment to the Senate on Monday. The Senate is expected to begin its impeachment trial the week of Feb. 8.

President Joe Biden told CNN on Monday that he does not believe there will be enough votes to convict Trump, as at least 17 Republican senators have to join Democrats to do so.

    1. I will never understand why American Fascists or the old Republicans always interpret opposition as hate. These are NOT equivalent to each other, but you keep on doing this.

      Why, Arthur? Why? Can you explain this?

  1. Great photo op for Schumer. The hate flows from every orifice. What a sad way to live. With all of the really urgent issues to deal with this is his focus? Again!

  2. Schumer is illustrating the Peter Principle – elevating someone to the level of their incompetence.

  3. From the guy who runs the worst state in the country?

    A state that sets the record for covid deaths by a huge margin. More than CA, NJ and FL combined.
