Democrats, who seem as if they’d like to do what presidential loser Hillary Clinton is doing and wander off into the woods never to be seen again, are reaching new lows in their ridiculous woe.
Still smarting from their drubbing in the 2016 elections, Democrats on Capitol Hill have decided to take their balls and go home.
On Tuesday, Democrats boycotted a session of the Senate Finance Committee, which meant that scheduled votes on President Trump’s nominees to head the Treasury and Health and Human Services departments had to be delayed.
Democrats in the Judiciary Committee also filibustered a vote on Sen. Jeff Sessions’ nomination to become attorney general,
Which meant Republicans were forced to adjourn without a vote — leaving the nation without a top law official.
Party leaders, including Sen. Chuck Schumer, have ordered Democrats to gum up the works, delaying action on Trump’s Cabinet nominees — often without any stated objection. Normally, the opposition party on the Hill will pick one or two nominees to battle over, but doe for nearly all the other Cabinet nominees.
So far, just three of Trump’s nominees have been approved.
Schumer said Trump is on the verge of committing treason. “During the first week and a half of the Trump administration, the White House has been untruthful, incompetent and at times un-American.”
Others, like Rep. Nancy Pelosi, the party’s leader on the House side, made clear she will oppose Trump on every issue — without first taking a moment to think.
The normally soft-spoken Sen. Orrin Hatch said he’s “very disappointed in this kind of crap.”
“I think they ought to stop posturing and acting like idiots. Some of this is because they just don’t like the president,” Hatch said.
