Does Senator Chuck Schumer think President Trump isn’t working hard enough?
Even Trump’s fiercest critics would never accuse the billionaire of being lazy. But Schumer suggested as much when he responded to Trump’s comment that he cried “fake tears” to grandstand for the cameras.
“I’m not gonna dignify that kind of silliness,” Schumer told CNN’s Erin Burnett. “Let him roll up his sleeves and put out something that really does prevent terrorists rather than this.”

Schumer also said he doesn’t think Trump takes his job seriously, even though the president has made bold moves to deliver on all his campaign promises after only 10 days in office.
“He doesn’t take this presidency seriously enough, at least in this instance,” Schumer whined. “There are times he flatters me, there are times he calls names. He’s not going to influence me.”
If he’s been paying any attention at all, the Democrat senator might want to think twice before goading Trump into more action.
Schumer embarrassed himself over the weekend when he cried crocodile tears at a press conference to protest Trump’s executive order temporarily blocking refugees from 7 terrorism-plagued nations.
Trump mocked Schumer for his melodramatic grandstanding: “I noticed Chuck Schumer yesterday with fake tears. I’m going to ask him who is his acting coach.”
Bo Dietl, a former New York City police detective, said he never saw Schumer get that emotional when 3,000 Americans died in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
“I didn’t see Senator Schumer crying on 9/11,” Dietl told Fox News.
Meanwhile, Twitter had a field day calling out snowflake Schumer’s crocodile tears.
One person said Schumer has a promising career on “Real Housewives” if he decides to quit his day job.
If Sen. Schumer was any more dramatic he'd be on Real Housewives of Atlanta.

Schumer conveniently forgot that he supported a temporary refugee ban in November 2015, citing national security concerns.
We must tighten loopholes in the Visa Waiver prgm, ensure passports can’t be faked & stop terrorists who want to exploit the system.

Fortunately, Twitter was there to refresh Schumer’s memory.
