Charles Schumer Statement: When I Threatened Gorsuch and Kavanaugh By Name, I Was Really Talking About Republican Office Holders, Who I Did Not Name

Sounds reasonable.

Speaking of reasonable, egg-shaped soy container Ed Morrissey agreed with his very good Democrat friends on Twitter that this was no big deal and that no one should make any kind of issue out of it.

Then he decided it would be a great idea to troll what I must assume to be his dwindling customer base:

Addendum II: In anticipation of the “what if a Republican had said this” argument, let me assure you that I have read my contract, and I am not required to lose my mind every time a Democrat loses theirs. Your contract may vary. Void where prohibited.

Well, lecturing and dismissing your actual customers has worked like gangbusters for Disney Lucasfilm (Kathleen Kennedy reportedly sideline, but they don't want to outright fire her due to the likely feminist shrieking), Marvel Comics (EIC Axel Alonzo fired 18 months ago) and DC Comics (just fired publisher Dan DiDio last week).

Gettting #Woke didn't turn out to be a winning strategy for liberal media companies. We'll see how it works out for NeverTrump working for the allegedly "conservative perspective" media.

Hope those contracts are long-term and iron-clad, boys!

Added: Star Trek fans complained that while I was covering the utter decimation of Doctor Who, I wasn't covering the similar decimation of Star Trek.

Well, this video from Midnight's Edge might scratch you where you itch.

According to rumor and rumblings, Star Trek is deemed to be a "garbage fire" by Viacom and its own production staff.

Showrunner Alex Kurtzmann is another person widely rumored to have been fired or sidelined -- but, supposedly, per the terms of his contract, they can't officially fire him.

But supposedly they've done everything they could to reduce his role.

Again, this is rumor and rumbling, unconfirmed.

Update: Maybe Allah and "The Cap'n" can rouse themselves to attack Trump for his dangerous provocation and coarsening of our discourse.

No, but seriously: All the True Conservatives who just piously lectured us about being "snowflakes" will now rush to condemn Trump for "inciting" people.

Wow, I Can't Believe The Very Very Reasonable Site HotAir Got Something Completely Wrong Again.

MoreBrit Hume Retweeted Laurence Tribe

Schumer's threats against Gorsuch and Kavanaugh not even playing well among lefty legal scholars.

Laurence Tribe

These remarks by @SenSchumer were inexcusable. Chief Justice Roberts was right to call him on his comments. I hope the Senator, whom I've long admired and consider a friend, apologizes and takes back his implicit threat. It's beneath him and his office.

Well look at that -- NeverTrump is now even more pro-Schumer than actual friend of Charles Schumer and leftwing lunatic Laurence Tribe.

So reasonable!

189 Josh Hawley just said he's going to introduce a motion to censure Schumer in the Senate tomorrow. Posted by: Mark1971

Well that'll settle it -- NeverTrump loves attacking Josh Hawley. It's how they all virtue signal to each other on the platform that doesn't pay their salaries but can never get off of, Twitter.
