If Chuck Schumer isn’t gay, he might be now. Because he got manhandled by Republican Sen. Tom Cotton from Arkansas.
In what could have been a scene in Deliverance, the fight started last Friday.
Democrats agreed to allow the Senate to hold a vote on Donald Trump CIA nominee Mike Pompeo. Then in typical third-grader fashion, Democrats changed their mind.
By Democrats, I mean the ONE Democrat who now thinks for all brain-dead Leftist morons. That person is equally brain-dead Chuck Schumer.
So, the following Monday, the Arkansas Republican Senator Tom Cotton confronted Schumer on the Senate floor.
Senator Cotton approached Schumer and said,
“Hey you promised you were going to hold this vote. You didn’t hold it.”
Schumer reportedly responded,
“Well where were you eight years ago when we were trying to get through all of President Obama’s nominees?”
Game on, Bitch!
That’s when Cotton snapped back,
“Eight years ago I was getting my a** shot at in Afghanistan… so don’t talk to me about where I was eight years ago.”
Tom Cotton is known for standing up to the establishment, and there is no quit in this veteran. In this next exchange, Cotton discusses GITMO.
COTTON: I want to explore the so-called risk balance between recidivism of released terrorists and the propaganda value that terrorists get from Guantanamo Bay. How many recidivists are there at Guantanamo Bay right now?
MCKEON: I’m not sure I follow the question.
COTTON: How many detainees in Guantanamo Bay are engaging in terrorism or anti- American excitement?
COTTON: … because they’re detained, because they only engage in that kind of recidivism overseas. Now let’s look at the propaganda value. How many detainees were at Guantanamo Bay on September 11, 2001?
COTTON: How many were there in October 2000 when al Qaeda bombed the USS Cole?
COTTON: What about in 1998, when they bombed our embassies?
MCKEON: The facility was not open before 2002, Senator.
COTTON: In 1993 in the first World Trade Center bombing.
MCKEON: Same answer.
COTTON: In 1979, when Iran took over our embassy? In 1983, when Hezbollah bombed our embassy and our Marine barracks in Lebanon? The answer is zero.
COTTON: Islamic terrorists don’t need an excuse to attack the United States. They don’t attack us for what we do, they attack us for who we are. It is not a security decision. It is a political decision based on a promise the president made on his campaign. To say that it is a security decision based on propaganda value that our enemies get from it is a pretext to justify a political decision. In my opinion, the only problem of Guantanamo Bay is there are too many empty beds and cells there right now. We should be sending more terrorists there for further interrogation to keep this country safe. As far as I’m concerned, every last one of them can rot in hell, but as long as they don’t do that, then they can rot in Guantanamo Bay!
