TRUMP DERANGEMENT SYNDROME: Another demonstration of Democrat compassion and tolerance, this time from one of their bigwigs. Yesterday, Senator Chuck U. Schumer encountered the 85-year old Joseph Califano and his wife Hilary (daughter of classic liberal William Paley, founder of the CBS Network) while dining at an incredibly expensive, trendy Manhattan restaurant. Califano, let us remember, worked for both Presidents Johnson and Carter, two gentlemen not exactly conservative in their policies.
Missus Califano, it became known, supported Donald Trump in the recent election. When hearing this, Schumer loudly berated both Califanos, going so far as to pursue them out of the restaurant into the chi-chi streets of the Upper East Side, yelling at them.
Now I realize that leftists do not care about laws with which they disagree. But in a civil society (one not degraded by secular progressives) Schumer’s actions would be considered an assault. I’m also curious to know how many “refugees” accompanied Chuck for a good meal at his expense. Remember that the good Senator is always hectoring us about our “unfairness” and demanding we give illegals free passes to the benefits of American society. Did Chuckles also berate the restaurant owner for failing to provide free meals to “sanctuary-seekers” living on the streets of Manhattan?
Schumer, the top Senate Democrat, lost his cool on Sunday night at Upper East Side restaurant Sette Mezzo, according to witnesses.
He was dining with friends when he encountered Joseph A. Califano Jr. — the former US secretary of health, education and welfare under President Jimmy Carter and domestic policy adviser to President Lyndon B. Johnson — and his wife, Hilary, who were having a quiet dinner.
Onlookers said Schumer was incensed that Hilary — the daughter of William S. Paley, the founder and chairman of CBS — had voted for Trump, even though her husband, Joseph, is a well-known Democrat.
One witness said of the restaurant rant, “They are a highly respected couple, and Schumer made a scene, yelling, ‘She voted for Trump!’ The Califanos left the restaurant, but Schumer followed them outside.” On the sidewalk, Schumer carried on with his fantastical filibuster: “ ‘How could you vote for Trump? He’s a liar!’ He kept repeating, ‘He’s a liar!’ ”
Hilary confirmed the confrontation, telling Page Six, “Sen. Schumer was really rude . . . He’s our senator, and I don’t really like him. Yes, I voted for Trump. Schumer joined us outside and he told me Trump was a liar. I should have told him that Hillary Clinton was a liar, but I was so surprised I didn’t say anything.”
Joseph didn’t return calls for comment.
Another diner insists that Califano and his wife approached Sen. Schumer’s table. The diner said, “It was a pleasant conversation. Joe said the senator was doing a good job on health care. Joe joked that Hilary voted for Trump. The conversation continued outside because everyone left at the same time.”
A spokesman for Schumer said, “[He] and his wife ate at the café on Sunday, engaging in unremarkable conversation with patrons who approached their table. There were no heated exchanges with anyone.”
Schumer has been making a lot of noise about Trump. On Monday he called for the removal of Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) as chairman of House Intelligence Committee. He’s also said he and the Democrats will attempt to filibuster Judge Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court.
The moral to this story: If you encounter a libtard progressive out in public, watch out: These loons will go off on you at the least provocation. Some folks just cannot tolerate losing …. how sad for them :>)
