Chuck Schumer Comes Unplugged and Unhinged
The entitled Senator Chuck Schumer believes the rules don’t apply to him. Thankfully we don’t need Omarosa to validate that Schumer is a self-entitled scumbag.
When a female flight attendant asked him to follow the rules like every one else on the plane, Holy Mother of Weinstein did Schumer lash out.
According to the New York Post,
Sen. Chuck Schumer apologized today after word got out that he called a flight attendant a “bitch” for ordering him to follow the rules and turn off his cellphone before takeoff.
And his political protégé, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, initially provided him with public cover.
Before I continue, understand that Chuck Schumer called a woman doing her job a bitch, and the Queen of #MeToo didn’t do a thing.
And it’s not like they were the only two who heard Schumer say this. No, Schumer’s outburst was overheard aboard a US Airways flight from LaGuardia Airport to Washington recently.
Schumer and his seatmate, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), were chatting on their cellphones when the plane’s captain told passengers to turn them off. However, the two Democratic senators ignored the order and kept talking. Because the two elitists believe themselves to be above the rules and regulations for peons, they figured nobody would bother them.
A flight attendant did. She returned to the pair and asked them to follow Federal Aviation Administration rules, this according to a House Republican aide who was seated nearby.
Schumer asked if he could finish his call. The attendant replied “No”, because the plane was prevented from taking off if they didn’t hang up.
The state’s senior senator ended his call.
Next however, he launched into an argument with the flight attendant, claiming he was entitled to continue his chat until the cabin door was closed.
“She said she doesn’t make the rules, she just followed them,” the aide said, according to Politco.com.
“Bitch!” Schumer remarked to Gillibrand after the attendant walked away.
Gillibrand’s office initially gave Schumer cover, telling Politico.com that the senior senator was “polite” and that “he turned off his phone when asked to.” That was not the case, and proves that Gillibrand was willing to toss the female flight attendant on the “casting couch” to protect her boss.
Republicans seized on the slip to slam Schumer. They circulating copies of news stories about the incident, knowing that the spin was in.
Once word spread that Schumer had been less than friendly, Gillibrand’s office offered a second statement, issued through her aide, Glen Caplin.
“Chuck did the right thing by apologizing.”
He criticized Republicans for “trying to score cheap political points” from the incident.
I’d love to know what Schumer would do if Trump had called a flight attendant a bitch? Think he and the Democrats wouldn’t make political hay from it?
We all know how much press such an incident involving Trump would have generated. I’d say at least a week of media, where they would call Trump a misogynist at least. Next we would hear that he tried to grab the flight attendant by the p*ssy.
In the aftermath, the flight attendant would get a 7-figure book deal, and a made-for-TV movie about her incident with Trump. But because it was Schumer, few people even know the incident took place.
After the flare-up was reported, Schumer officially apologized. No big public hoopla, just a terse “apology”.
Knowing Democrats as I do, I suggest that flight attendant lay low for a bit. You know Schumer now schemes to ruin her.
