Recently. Senator Chuck Schumer made outrageous comments, some would say threats, towards Supreme Court Justices Kavanaugh and Gorsuch. Today, he made a pathetic attempt to walk back those comments, by saying, "I’m from Brooklyn. We speak in strong language."
Well, Senator, you may be from Brooklyn, but your behavior is not, and what you said is FAR from "strong." To threatened as you did, especially from your position of power, is pure bullying. You'd have a difficult time finding that kind of behavior in Brooklyn, and if you did, it wouldn't last.
I'm not going to call for your resignation, nor will I ask for your censure, although that might happen anyway. I'm just going to ask that if you say you're from Brooklyn, then behave like you're from Brooklyn. Respect our laws, our Constitution, and our President. Show that you LOVE America deeply and passionately, as does everyone from Brooklyn. Finally, if you're going to apologize, make a REAL apology, and don't use it as a platform to lecture us again with your opinion. Have some Brooklyn class.
