Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer continues to demonstrate why he is losing his mind and needs to resign.
On Sunday, he told 60 minutes that the Republicans should pass on Neil Gorsuch and that they need to nominate a new Supreme Court justice.
He said that it wasn’t fair for the Republicans to push Gorsuch through when he can’t obtain the 60 votes needed to pass.
“When a nominee doesn’t get 60 votes, you shouldn’t change the rules — you should change the nominee.”

What the Democrats forget is that they too have used the “nuclear option” in the past and that Senate Republicans are simply playing by the rules that were previously established.
The rules are the rules and you have to accept them at all times even if they don’t always benefit you. You can’t change your mind because it no longer favors you, that isn’t how it works.
