VIDEO: Schumer Gets Heckled During Live Press Briefing

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer was hysterically heckled during a press briefing on the Supreme Court vacancy Tuesday by a heckler who shouted, “Stop lying to the people.”

Actually, he said a little more than that, and it was a bit more graphic as well. Read on, won’t you?

The incident occurred as Nancy Pelosi’s BFF was in the middle of verbally spanking Republicans for their decision to move forward with confirming a Supreme Court justice before the election – a move most Democrats staunchly oppose since they’re not in charge at the moment.

At the time of the interruption, Schumer had strayed off-topic and was criticizing Republicans for their COVID-19 response.

“We Democrats are fighting as hard as we can to protect Americans,” Schumer said. “And we need Americans — ”

“You ain’t doing s***,” the heckler said. “Stop lying to the people. Stop lying to the people.”

Another person shouted, “Jesus saves. Jesus saves. Jesus loves you guys,” to which Schumer, a practicing Jew responded, “Thank you.”

ALERT: Here’s the video of that you skipped past the above text to watch:

Incidentally, Schumer’s really been laying it on thick with his “Republicans are bad people for pushing ahead on filling the vacancy on the Supreme Court” schtick.

Democrats have accused Republicans of hypocrisy after the caucus blocked Merrick Garland‘s confirmation hearing in 2016, nine months before the election.

Here’s what Democrats used to think about filling a court vacancy in an election year:

In Washington, that’s known as “evolving on an issue.” In the rest of the country, it’s called being “full of crap.”
