Schmucky Schumer is responding to Trump’s threat to use a sweeping executive order to deal out relief to victims of this ongoing pandemic lockdown with a threat of his own: “Schumer warns that if the President goes ahead with broader executive orders, they will be “litigated””

Immediately Senator John Cornyn responded to the report, saying “They will sue to stop relief for #COVID19? Pathetic”

Mitch McConnell’s press secretary wondered the same thing:
Are Democrats saying they’ll sue to prevent economic relief for Americans? https://t.co/jBIWIjNSjy

Yep. Schumer and Pelosi say it’s their way or the highway when it comes to relief. Nobody gets relief unless they say so. NOBODY.
Seriously, I remember the good old days when the House, run by Republicans, was essentially told to get in line because the Senate and the Presidency were both controlled by Democrats. My how times fly.
Democrats can get away with anything these days because the media will never hold them to the same standard as Republicans. And if any of the media even nudge in the wrong direction – well we saw what happened today when a PBS news host decided to play devil’s advocate with Pelosi and dare repeat what Republicans are saying.
