Dem Senator Says Schumer Can Kiss His ‘You Know What’ Regarding Kavanaugh Vote
Democrat Senator Joe Manchin is not holding back his rejection of Charles Schumer’s efforts to rally the party against President Trump’s Supreme Court pick, saying that the Senate Minority Leader can kiss his “you know what.”
Speaking to Politico, Manchin said that Schumer will have no influence over which way he votes when it comes to Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination.
“I’ll be 71 years old in August, you’re going to whip me? Kiss my you know what,” Manchin said.
Manchin is not the only one who doesn’t take Schumer very seriously. Senators Joe Donnelly and Claire McCaskill have no time for him either.
“My decision won’t have anything to do with Chuck Schumer,” Sen. Donnelly told Politico.
McCaskill said that if he attempted to rally her to vote a certain way she would tell him to take a “flyin’ leap.”
“He doesn’t come to me and say: ‘You’ve got to vote with us on this.’ He knows I’ll tell him to take a flyin’ leap,” she said. “I’m going to do what I think is right. It has nothing to do with the party.”
Schumer has vowed to fight Kavanaugh’s nomination with “everything he has,” but it looks like he doesn’t even have his entire party.
