Constituents Upset Over Senator Schumer Failing To Show Up For Brooklyn Town Hall Meeting

Will Donald Trump win the 2024 election?

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is in hot water over his failure to show up for a scheduled town hall meeting at a synagogue in Brooklyn, New York.

The Nation reports:

On Monday evening, Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer was scheduled to host a town-hall meeting at his reform synagogue, Congregation Beth Elohim (CBE), a historic building on a tree-lined Brooklyn block. Ever since Donald Trump’s election, Schumer has faced growing anger from progressive Democrats infuriated by his stated willingness to work with a man they consider unfit for public office. A local group had been working for nearly a year to convince Schumer to answer questions from constituents in person.

Those waiting to talk with Schumer received an email shortly before the event notifying them the Senator was not going to attend the meeting as planned.

“We sincerely regret to inform you that—due to mechanical issues that have grounded his plane in upstate New York—Senator Schumer is unable to make it to New York City and must CANCEL tonight’s town hall meeting.”

Schumer’s constituents were not happy with the Senator’s decision to speak to them via a conference call.

Politico reports:

But activists were looking for more from Schumer on Monday night, and his move to speak from afar didn’t ease their anxiety.

“We are in a gunfight, but we have a butter knife,” one New Yorker who identified herself as Monique sighed to Schumer on his conference call.

The story adds one activist was contemplating holding a rally outside the Senator’s Brooklyn home if he failed to reschedule the town hall event.

Some of the attendees were frustrated Schumer criticized Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) over her comments to harass members of President Trump’s administration.

The New York Times reports:

Multiple people at the synagogue and on the call expressed frustration that Mr. Schumer had rebuked Representative Maxine Waters, Democrat of California, for her call to harass Trump administration officials in public places.

“This rhetoric of civility is rhetoric that doesn’t enable the Democratic Party to unite and fight and have a solid stance against white supremacy,” said Jess Applebaum, who left work early in Manhattan to come to the town hall that wasn’t.

Schumer sent a Tweet showing a picture of him on the phone with his constituents.

The comments directed at Schumer illustrate the energy of the Democrat Party is from the extreme Left and the New York Senator is too moderate for their political beliefs.

Democrats are eating their own.
