Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is still under heavy fire for threatening conservative Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh last week.
It has been several weeks since Schumer’s threatening remarks, and nothing has been done about it.
The president took to Twitter this week and got the ultimate payback on Schumer by again calling for action against the New York Democrat for his threats.
“Can’t believe they are not going after Schumer for the threats he made to our cherished United States Supreme Court, and our two great Justices,” Trump wrote.
But he didn’t stop there.
“If a Republican did that, there would be an endless price to pay,” continued Trump. “Pathetic!”

And the president couldn’t be more right that Democrats and Republicans are held to different standards by the liberal mainstream media.
Last week, Trump and over a dozen Senate Republicans have called for Schumer to be censured.
Soon after video clips of Schumer’s comments scorched across social media earlier this month, one top Republican confirmed publicly that he thinks Schumer “must” be censured for his remarks.
Censure is a formal, and public, condemnation or reprimand of an elected official for displaying unacceptable and grotesque behavior.
Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz is calling for Schumer to be punished for threatening the two conservative Supreme Court justices.
“I don’t say this lightly, but Minority Leader Chuck Schumer MUST be censured for threatening Justices by name on the steps of #SCOTUS,” Cruz tweeted in reaction to Schumer’s comments.
According to Fox News, Republican lawmakers are about to take action against Schumer:
Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., has continued to call for Schumer to be censured after introducing a resolution in the Senate to do just that. And dozens of well-known conservative leaders signed a letter Monday adding their voices to the calls.
Hawley’s resolution, which was co-sponsored by 14 senators, called for Schumer to be censured for the comments, which it describes as “an attempt to unduly influence the judicial decisions of the Supreme Court of the United States and to undermine the vision of the founders of the United States of the ‘complete independence of the courts of justice.'”
Schumer’s threatening comments have ignited a firestorm.
Schumer warned in a fiery speech outside the Supreme Court that Gorsuch and Kavanaugh will “pay the price” if they vote against pro-choice advocates in a high-profile abortion case.
Of note, Schumer declared: “I want to tell you, Gorsuch, I want to tell you, Kavanaugh, you have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”
Schumer’s comments are in response to the Supreme Court hearing a challenge to a Louisiana law which requires doctors who perform abortions to possess hospital admitting privileges.
The Supreme Court could be on the verge of issuing a major pro-life ruling and, as evidenced by Schumer’s threats, Democrats are freaking out about it.
In response to Schumer’s threats, Trump called for “serious action” against the top Senate Democrat.
Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts issued a rare rebuke of Schumer’s threat, calling it both “inappropriate” and “dangerous” for a leading lawmaker to utter.
