An angry Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) invoked iconic U.S. President Ronald Reagan in a temper tantrum over Republicans who want to put America over Ukraine.
With GOP lawmakers digging on insisting that money to address the illegal alien crisis be tied to the Biden regime’s $60 billion Christmas gift to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the New York City Democrat sought to shame his political adversaries rather than do the right thing and secure the border.
“If Republicans want to bring up immigration right now, right in the middle of trying to pass aid to Ukraine and other issues, the onus is on them to present serious bipartisan proposals that can get broad support from Democrats, not just 1 or 2 Democrats,” Schumer said in his Senate floor hissy fit.
“Ronald Reagan would be rolling in his grave — rolling in his grave, if he saw his own party let Vladimir Putin roll through Europe.”

“And if Republicans are unable to produce a bipartisan, a broadly bipartisan immigration proposal, they should not block aid to Ukraine in response,” he continued. “They should not be resorting to hostage taking…”
“That would be madness. Utter madness,” he whined. “It would be an insult to our Ukrainian friends who are fighting their lives against Russian autocracy and could go down as a major turning point where the West didn’t live up to its responsibilities and things turned away from our democracies and our values and towards autocracy.”
“Ronald Reagan would be rolling in his grave, rolling in his grave if he saw his own party let Vladimir Putin roll through Europe. So once again, I urge my Republican colleagues to think carefully, carefully about what’s at stake with this week’s vote,” referring to the upcoming high stakes vote to bilk hard-working Americans out of their tax dollars for yet another giveaway to the notoriously corrupt Eastern European country and its rapidly shrinking leader.
Schumer was steaming over Speaker of the House Mike Johnson (R-LA) to told the Biden regime that there won’t be any money for Ukraine unless there are major changes in border security.
In a letter to the White House, Johnson said that the cash for Zelenskyy was “dependent upon enactment of transformative change to our nation’s border security laws,” according to Fox News.
More than any other U.S. president, Reagan stared down the Soviet Union at a time when there really was a red menace during the Cold War, and through strong leadership and the willingness to talk to his Russian counterpart Soviet General Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev in a day when diplomacy was still seen as a virtue, the “Gipper” saved the world from communism.
Tragically, a mere three decades after the fall of the Berlin Wall, communism – or something very close to it – has once again reared its ugly head, this time in America in the form of Schumer’s ruthlessly authoritarian political party.
Now THAT is what would have Ronald Reagan rolling over in his grave.
The nation’s 40th president will be remembered long after Senator Schumer becomes just another minor footnote in history.
