Gutfeld: Schumer Rips Trump, Makes Trump's Point


Greg Gutfeld said Monday that a recent tweet by Sen. Charles Schumer showed that President Trump's critics "do not have a problem with the truth, but instead with Trump saying it."

Over the holiday weekend, Schumer (D-N.Y.) – the Senate Minority Leader – ripped Trump for his response to criticism from Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts.

Trump previously attacked federal Judge Jon Tigar as an "Obama judge" who ruled against his order to deny some asylum claims at the Mexican border.

Roberts said in a statement to the AP that there are "no Obama judges" or "Bush judges" and admonished Trump for bringing the topic of political parties into the judiciary.

"I do not agree very often with Chief Justice Roberts, especially his partisan decisions which seem highly political on Citizens United, Janus, and Shelby," Schumer wrote Friday. "But I am thankful today that he was almost alone among Republicans-stood up to President Trump and for an independent judiciary."

Gutfeld said the tweet showed that Schumer actually agrees with Trump, in that judges can be partisan and that it is acceptable to label them by party or ideological affiliation.

Gutfeld noted that Schumer labeled Roberts to "Republican" and described some rulings unfavorable to the left as partisan – like the Citizens United decision against campaign finance.

"That's not just comical, that's progress," Gutfeld said, adding that Schumer basically wrote that "Trump's wrong and here's why I agree with him."
