Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) will, apparently, be made to suffer for his weekend-long wait to collapse in front of Congressional Republicans. Not only has he earned the moniker, "#SchumerSellout," but left-leaning activists are now camping out on his lawn and, perhaps worst of all, they're leaving reviews for him on Google Places.
“The idiot just plays games with the Americans, just got my furlough because of this idiot and his left wing extremist minions shutting down the government Get out of office. Get out of America you scum Schumer,” one particularly steamed reviewer wrote about his (possibly) local senator.
"Can’t believe you are leading the charge for a shut down!!!! How am I and others going to pay our bills? While you go on another vacation and cheat people out of money!!!! Disgraceful human who only cares about keeping yourself in office! You have never served the American people, only yourself and illegals! Disgusted with you and others you work with,” fumed another.
Some of the reviews appear to have been made before Schumer led the way in refusing to end a filibuster, which sent the federal government into a tailspin starting at midnight Saturday morning. Others — the angrier ones — were mostly authored after Schumer accepted a Republican plan to fund the government through early February, winning absolutely nothing in return — and even cutting off a potential second showdown by agreeing to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's plan for immigration reform.
Those reviews accused Schumer of “putting politics before the American people," and of being “a poor excuse for a legislator.”
Schumer seems to have survived the bad reviews, but there are also, reportedly, hundreds of people currently camped out on his lawn, which is probably going to make for a nasty surprise come the weekend.
