One significant piece of news that came from the presidential election was the gap between the coastal elites and the rest of the nation. Chuck Schumer has become the face of that coastal elite. Did he cultivate that image, or did it just come about by chance?
It seems that there currently is only one thing about Trump which Schumer approves -- retaliation for gas attacks. Put that aside, and Schumer is constantly on the TV screen decrying anything Republicans do or want to do.
Take Neil Gorsuch. Schumer is ticked off that Gorsuch will be the newest Supreme Court Justice. Gorsuch was a good choice by Trump, but since Merritt Garner didn't get a full hearing, Schumer wanted revenge. Fortunately for conservatives, Schumer got out maneuvered.
But whether he likes it or not, Schumer is the TV face of the coastal elites who feel entitled to rule the rest of us. Elizabeth Warren held that post for a while but seems to have been relegated to the sidelines. Poor gal.
