Riehl World View: Schumer Is Not A Graceful Rube
Schumer Is Not A Graceful Rube
Actually, I don't know if Schumer is upset because he found out what a rube he is, or if this is just cover because he's worried about his pro-Israel cred and fundraising.
... Schumer dramatically sharpened his tone on the politically conservative Jewish Nachum Segal Show today, calling the White House stance to date "counter-productive" and describing his own threat to "blast" the Administration had the State Department not backed down from its "terrible" tough talk toward Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Schumer, a hawkish ally of Israel since his days as a Brooklyn Congressman, described "a battle going on inside the administration" over Middle East policy.
"This has to stop," he said of the administration's policy of publicly pressuring Israel to end construction in Jerusalem.
