Charlotte, NC — More information continues to emerge on how Democrats are dealing, more like reeling, after their Election Day beatdown they suffered courtesy of responsible, values-based voters who spoke loud and clear that a majority of Americans are not on board.
Those of us who help provide this beatdown are not on board with the defund movement, massive wealth redistribution, and all other such far-left tripe. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has talked in private phone calls about why he believes Democrat hopes to regain control of the Senate were doomed from the outset, as reported by Axios.
And of course, Cryin’ Chuck being Cryin’ Chuck, he’s pointing fingers at everybody but himself.
In one recent call with donors, Schumer lamented that the Democrats’ best chance of regaining control of the Senate was squashed, according to Axios, by the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg and North Carolina Senate candidate Cal Cunningham’s extramarital affair; about which Schumer told donors Cal “couldn’t keep his zipper up.”
Axios reports that the senior senator from New York has made the “zipper” comment on numerous calls, according to sources with direct knowledge of the conversations.
Prior to ZipperGate, many analysts believed Cunningham had a good chance of unseating GOP Sen. Thom Tillis, who was ultimately declared the winner in a tight race.
The Senate balance stands 50-48 with control of the upper chamber to be determined in two Jan. 5 runoff elections in Georgia. Democrats must win both races to take back the Senate. This also assumes Biden is ultimately certified as the winner of the presidential election; therefore, this would make
Willie Brown Kamala Harris as vice president the tie-breaker vote.
Schumer told donors Republican Susan Collins [only] won re-election in Maine because of her opposition to Amy Coney Barrett filling Ginsburg’s vacated seat prior to the election. Collins’s defection proved moot; Barrett was confirmed by 52 of 53 Republican votes.
In another excuse offered up by Schumer, one source told Axios the New York senior senator told donors he regretted being unsuccessful in his attempt to recruit failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams to run for a Senate seat in Georgia.
Abrams claimed she actually won the 2018 gubernatorial race and still insists she won — not unlike Hillary Clinton, still blaming everything and everybody on the planet for her 2016 loss to Donald Trump, except herself, of course. If Biden is certified as the winner and if Abrams is invited, it’s likely, she will rush the Inaugural Stage, take Biden out, and then proceed to take the President’s oath of office.
Schumer’s excuses ignore the reality that Speaker Pelosi’s House Democrat Caucus got absolutely decimated on election night, namely due to far-left support of the aforementioned far-left support of the defund movement, so-called “Medicare for All” — government-administered health care — and other such socialist nonsense. Moreover, the refusal of Pelosi and Schumer to compromise with Trump and the Republicans on a second, stripped-down, COVID relief package — out of fear of Trump receiving credit prior to the election — did not sit well with voters either.
Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) talked about that very issue on Tuesday on the Senate floor.
“We all have bipartisan agreement to support those people who are still in need, yet Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi will not relent on their $3.5 trillion wish list.”
Are you listening, Chuck?

On Tuesday, Schumer did everything short of cry on the Senate floor about potential Senate Republican opposition to Biden cabinet selections.
“If Senate Republicans are concerned about someone who made controversial comments running OMB, perhaps they shouldn’t have confirmed Russell Vought who once said ‘Muslims… do not know God because they have rejected Jesus Christ his son.’”
Schumer was referring to Biden’s pick for director of the Office of Management and Budget, Neera Tandan, who in 2016 spread wild conspiracy theories about Russian vote-hackers, all the while denying that Hillary Clinton lost the election.

Chuck Schumer’s excuses for why he believes the Democrats are doomed — at least to the extent that he’s reportedly told donors — are just that. Excuses.
Still, it’s far more fun to think about Cryin’ Chuck anguishing that were it not for a zipper that refused to stay up, he might’ve become Senate Majority Leader in less than two months.
