Sen. Tom Cotton Masterfully Trolls Dems By Reciting Chuck Schumer's Own Words Defending Filibuster On Senate Floor
· Jan 12, 2022 ·

This is weapons-grade trolling right here:

  • "Right now, we are on the precipice of a constitutional crisis. We are about to step into the abyss."

Yes, those were Chuck Schumer's words, once upon a time.

Now, of course, Dems are claiming that if you don't support nuking the filibuster so they can have perpetual rule in America, then you are a vile racist ... or something.

"Those are powerful words -- but they're not mine. Every word of my speech today was originally spoken by my esteemed colleague, the senior senator from New York, Chuck Schumer. Senator Schumer spoke so eloquently in defense of the Senate's rules, customs, and traditions when the fortunes of his party looked a little different.

"My, how times have changed. Now it's Senator Schumer's fingers that are hovering over the nuclear button, ready to destroy the filibuster for partisan advantage. Think about it: the narrowest majority in Senate history wants to break the Senate rules to control how voters in every state elect senators. Could there be a better argument to preserve the Senate's rules, customs, and traditions?"

More of this, please.
