Senator Schumer drew condemnation after threatening two conservative Supreme Court justices and even one of his staunchest defenders refused to defend him.

According to Town Hall:

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer threatened Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh at a Planned Parenthood rally on Wednesday. The Democrat said that the Trump-appointed justices would "pay the price" if they vote the wrong way on an upcoming abortion case. His incendiary words made House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's life a lot harder Thursday on Capitol Hill, because even after his attempted apology, she couldn't justify them.


"I believe he also said on the floor today that his words were not appropriate," Pelosi offered. "And I support him in that."

"It's unfortunate because as you can see, I think the Republicans say it's okay if the president does it, but it's not okay if other people do. It wasn't right for anybody to do and Chuck recognized those words."

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had no issue putting Schumer in his place during his Senate floor remarks Thursday morning.

  Despite Schumer saying he shouldn't have used the words, his communications staff defended his statement on Twitter.
