Schumer aide trolls Trump voters: ‘I’m tired of all the winning’

Conservatives are getting tired of all the winning–by Democrats.

Matt House, Communications Director for Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), ridiculed President Trump’s “tired of winning” slogan shortly after the Republican head of state on Friday signed a $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill widely seen by his supporters as betraying key conservative causes.

“I, for one, am tired of all the winning,” House wrote.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) also declared victory. “[T]his bill was a victory for investment in our future,” The American Mirror reported her as saying at a press conference.

The massive bill included funding for planned parenthood and sanctuary cities–both of which President Trump and conservatives have promised to defund.

It instead allocated $1.6 billion, most of which is required to go to existing fencing. Additionally, the bill forces the Department of Homeland Security to reduce the number of detention beds for illegal aliens, the Washington Times reports.

President Trump said he signed the bill reluctantly and will “NEVER sign another bill like this again.”

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) praised the bill for increasing military spending. But members of the House Freedom Caucus, including Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), blasted the budget.

“This may be the worst bill I have seen in my time in Congress,” Jordan told Fox News. He added: “The one thing we don’t fund is the one issue we all campaigned on — a border security wall — and that is not in the legislation.”

Many of the president’s supporters offered similar criticism.
