During an outdoor press conference on Tuesday, Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) was heckled towards the end of his remarks by a couple of people and was also confronted by a reporter over a previous statement he made regarding a Supreme Court vacancy in an election year.

While speaking, Schumer threatened that if Democrats get the majority back in the Senate, “everything is on the table”, adding, “But it was everything is on the table. We are gonna look at how we can produce change.”

Chuck Schumer: “Everything is on the table”:

Schumer was confronted by a reporter about one of his tweets from 2016: “Democrats did an about-face– you tweeted out 4 years ago, ‘Senate has confirmed 17 SCOTUS Justices in presidential election years. #DoYourJob'”.

Schumer claimed, “Look– just look at that. It’s McConnell who changed the rules, not us.”

Asked if the Senate moved too fast when they confirmed Justice Ginsburg in 50 days, Schumer said, “Well, I’d have to go over the history there, but it wasn’t on the eve of an election like this is.” Video Below

When asked if he worries his language about ‘everything is on the table’ could be used against his some of Senate Democrat candidates, Schumer replied, “Everything is on the table. My Senate Democratic colleagues and candidates knows America needs some change. And we’re gonna figure out the best way to do it.”

Another reporter asked Schumer: “Do you think this sort of brings the importance of elections and voting into focus? I mean the reason why there’s likely gonna be a third conservative Justice in the court is because President Trump won won the election, Senate Republicans won the majority. What is the message now to Democrats in terms of the importance of winning elections?”

We leave you with hecklers who interrupted Schumer towards the end of his remarks: “Stop lying to the people… Jesus saves! Jesus love you guys!”
