Trump Brands Schumer And Blumenthal As Two Weepy Losers

President Trump unleashed on Chuck Schumer and Richard Blumenthal on Wednesday and Thursday, mocking the Northeast Democratic senators for supposedly crying after both spoke out against the White House’s firing of FBI Director James Comey.

The tweet about Schumer referenced his tearing up back in January, when he gave a speech denouncing the president’s “Muslim ban” - now tied up in court. “Cryin’ Chuck Schumer” is a change from that time, though, when he called the New York senator “Fake Tears Chuck.”

He also took aim at Schumer’s Connecticut colleague Blumenthal.

Those tweets referenced Blumenthal embellishing his record in the Vietnam-era military, when he served as a reservist in a domestic context. Trump received multiple deferments for military service while the war was on.
