Schumer Tries to Rewrite History: Republicans Spreading Conspiracy Theories and Poisoning Well of Our Democracy

 During a joint press conference with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer just tried to rewrite the history of the past four years in an attempt to turn Republicans against President Trump.

“We just had a divisive and hard-fought presidential election,” Schumer said. “But instead of working to pull the country back together so that we can fight our common enemy, Covid-19, Republicans in Congress are spreading conspiracy theories, denying reality, and poisoning the well of our democracy.”

I must have missed the part where Democrats united behind President Trump after a “divisive and hard fought election” back in 2016, or since.

Schumer then doubled down on his attempt to rewrite history, “The Republicans should stop their shenanigans about an election that President Trump has already lost and focus their attention on the immediate issue at hand, providing relief to a country living through the Covid health and economic crises.”

Just like Democrats stopped their “shenanigans” after President Trump defeated Hillary Clinton. Truth is, there is a huge difference between the 2016 and the 2020 elections.

In 2016, President Trump won fair and square, even though Democrats and their media allies screamed “Russia, Russia, Russia!” for years. This time we are not so certain, and that is part of the problem.

Later in his speech Schumer said “The election is over, it wasn’t close. Trump lost, Joe Biden will be the next president of the United States, Kamala Harris will be the next vice president of the United States. Senate Republicans, stop denying reality.”

Schumer must think we are stupid and have forgotten the past four years and what we have just witnessed with our own eyes since November 3rd if he thinks conservatives are “denying reality.”

President Trump should refuse to give in until every vote is counted in an open and transparent fashion and all of the legal challenges are resolved.

Watch via CSPAN:

Read the entire transcript of this segment, it’s important:

SCHUMER: “Thank you Madam Speaker, it’s good to be back.

Now, good morning. This is a great — a moment of great national challenge.

Covid-19 is surging, small businesses are shuttering, families are struggling, people continue to lose jobs and not gain new ones.

We just had a divisive and hard-fought presidential election.

But instead of working to pull the country back together so that we can fight our common enemy, Covid-19, Republicans in Congress are spreading conspiracy theories, denying reality, and poisoning the well of our democracy.

The Republicans should stop their shenanigans about an election that President Trump has already lost and focus their attention on the immediate issue at hand, providing relief to a country living through the Covid health and economic crises.

When it comes to the election, Republicans, congressional Republicans don’t have the evidence. They don’t have the proof. They don’t have anything, neither does the president.

Congressional Republicans are deliberately casting doubt on our elections for no other reason than fear of Donald Trump. These Republicans are all auditioning for profiles and cowardice. So this morning I have a simple message for Senate Republicans.

The election is over, it wasn’t close. Trump lost, Joe Biden will be the next president of the United States, Kamala Harris will be the next vice president of the United States.

Senate Republicans, stop denying reality.

Stop deliberately and recklessly sewing doubt about our democratic process and start focusing on Covid.

The Republican refusal to do with reality is hurting our country in many ways.

Fighting the health crisis of Covid, improving our economy, and not compromising on a national security.”
