Dems call for Trump Labor pick to withdraw

Andrew Puzder, President Donald Trump’s pick to lead the Labor Department, is unqualified for the job and should withdraw, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Sen. Patty Murray said at a press conference Thursday.

“On policy and practice, Andrew Puzder has proven himself to be an enemy, not a champion, of workers’ rights,” Schumer said.

The New York Democrat said Trump should withdraw Puzder’s nomination “before he further embarrasses this administration and further exposes the hypocrisy of President Trump saying one thing to the workers of America and then doing another.”

Puzder’s candidacy was rocked this week when he admitted to hiring an undocumented immigrant and failing to pay taxes on her employment. The fast-food executive also has faced allegations of beating his wife, apprenticed to a notorious mob lawyer early in his career, and has drawn fire for working conditions at his restaurant chain, CKE. His confirmation hearing has been scheduled for Feb. 16 after weeks of paperwork delays.

Murray, of Washington, who is the top Democrat on the Senate committee vetting Puzder’s nomination, echoed Schumer’s remarks. She described Puzder as “uniquely unqualified” because of working conditions at CKE and the company’s ads featuring scantily clad women in bikinis eating burgers and mimicking sexual arousal.

    • Jim

      I wonder if Chuckie and Patty ever tried having sex with each other. That would be a bull moose and a fat cow. and put in a whole lot of UGLY.

  • Grammaof4

    Hey, Schumer and Murray .. When your pointing your bony finger at someone, has it ever occurred to you that you have three pointing back at you? Seems funny, the ones crying “wolf” the loudest are the same ones that have already done whatever they are accusing their opponent of. So, what does your record speak of?

  • voncile fullwood

    seems to me oh Chuckie need to find that long black train to get aboard because the conductor has took him no where for so long and several more needs to hop on it for it is going no where

  • Peter Smith

    Senator Chuck Schumer, get ready to lose ……… AGAIN, AND AGAIN, AND AGAIN, ………… as the former DC Mulato once said, “I won, get used to it …” President Trump won this time, get used to it …

  • Howleyesque

    Yet ODDLY ENOUGH Eric Holder wasn’t “uniquely unqualified” by dint of having been a member of… THE BLACK PANTHERS? Speaking of HYPOCRISY!!! It’s a good thing the DUMOCRATS don’t have THREE OR FOUR sides of their mouths to speak out of! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/8ea07f3185f16412dbd46dc1ce34f2cc50dcfd9c09dbb323fbc07e851c819c4c.jpg https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/51c1e1c00e219d1bf2307b701d65ab3c2ca5c81d17c11d76b2fc3048b9dfea50.jpg

    get you out of office next election. He has done nothing but obstruct everything in the senate .

    • AC1USNRetired

      “Schumer the biggest do nothing in the Senate Good by loud mouth this is your last free ride. We will get you out of office next election.”
      If your NOT a New Yorker that would be a neat trick.

    • Marlene Binger

      HALLELUJAH!

  • Raymond Levy

    what a bunch of bull shit, Schumer you are the one that should step down, your nothing but an idiot, and it shows every time you open your mouth, you and all the other idiot democrat obstructionist, but their is a silver lining,the democratic party is a dying party, and we will stomp it into the ground, until their are no more of you idiot liberals/democrats……………..

  • Jim Wagenmann

    Seems that there may be cause for concern. I seem to remember a Supreme Court nominee who had not paid taxes on an undocumented worker. I forget what the out come of that was.
    What does concern me is that chucky the clown is perversely aroused buy the model eating the burger. But I get totally disgusted by jealousy exhibited by Murray. You should never be jealous of another person just because everybody would puke if they saw you wearing a bikini or worse yet nothing at all.

    • Jim

      Jim, if I ever saw Patty anywhere close to a bikini I would find somewhere else too go.Her ass is so big it would not fit in one.and that hair -do and face need a big make over.Plus the bitch is a short shit.

  • Concerned Citizen

    And yet these two are unqualified for any job outside of elected office [for which there are apparently no qualifications]; and they continue to steal money from hard-working / tax-paying / legal American citizens.

  • tCotUS

    Chuck Schumer and Sen. Patty Murray Have done NOTHING FOR AMERICA !!…. They are only interested in ” WE the Party, For the Party & Screw You America”… Two of the most worthless pieces of
    Socialist Pig Dung the DNC has in it’s arsenal…with the exception of Warren, PeeLosi, & Hitlery

    • AC1USNRetired

      That’s Communist pig dung. How ’bout we start calling these people what they actually are … Commies. And if they want to push it I can’t cite solid similarities with the NAZIs.

      “A message from Gus Hall, General Secretary of the Communist Party, U.S.A. since 1959.”
      “Our electoral policy has for some 25 years been expressed in the phrase “the three legs of a stool”…”;
      “… the concept was built on the idea that when the other two legs, namely, the Communist Party and the forces of political independence, get strong enough, then and only then would the stool sit on three legs. But until that day comes the one operating leg would be the liberal wing of the Democratic Party.”

      “Is that not how it has in fact operated?” [page 37]

      I have an ORIGINAL copy of the pamphlet this is excerpted from, “A Lame Duck In Turbulent Waters”

  • CALVIN

    Shumer, you are a pathetic dipshit. Who are you to say anyone is unqualified for anything. Hillary and bill and obama should be in jail for all the shit they have pulled!

  • d66cmorris

    If Schumer doesn’t want him he must be an excellent person for the job and should be approved immediately.

  • Oscar Pearson

    Schumer and Murray are unqualified so what is their problem?

  • Henry J. Gilbertson

    Chuckie Schlock Schumer is living proof that someone opened his scull and fond that there was nothing there and they stuffed it full of donkey dung

  • Dan

    Maybe Chuckie should join ‘bama in some R&R. Windbags slowly run out of air.

  • Frederic Charles Hilnbrand

    The DEM’S are upset that they can’t have it there way. To bad ASSHOLES!!

  • epauls

    Democrats are expecting the Labor groups to donate to their cause. The Dept of Education is a big mess; but their function is to donate to the Democrat. This arrangement is a BIG Problem.

    • homegirl

      Overturn Citizens United SCOTUS ruling and its all over for union, corporation and big money in campaigns.

  • kassa1

    If I was the communist a.k.a. Democrats in Congress I keep my big pie hole shut that’s the bomb I had the biggest turd on the sore on his cabinet that anybody could have. So sit down and shut up Schumer your piece of shit

  • AC1USNRetired

    As with the military, “I” volunteer my services to my employer. I DON”T have stock holdings therefore I have no say regarding ANYTHING pertaining to the “company”. Please, someone cite my “rights” as an employee beyond that I’m contracted to a forty hour work week, two fifteen minute breaks, thirty unpaid minutes for lunch and two weeks paid vacation per year. I have my own medical insurance covering my wife and I.
    Quite bluntly, you UNION COMMIES best LEAVE ME and MY EMPLOYER ALONE, because if YOU try getting between me and my EMPLOYER acting on my behalf without my consent, I SHALL be all over you like ugly on a gorilla. I fight my own battles.

    • homegirl

      Somehow you have never learned that you have:
      forty hour work week
      two weeks paid vacation
      two fifteen minute breaks
      and 30 minutes for lunch

      because unions fought for those terms of employment.

      PS: You forgot about overtime.

      Men, women and children died to attain those conditions for you. Show some respect.

      • AC1USNRetired

        The unions have Communist roots. I despise Communism and socialism on the whole. I work and PREFER to live and work in a right to work” state. AND it was Henry Ford NOT unions who instituted the forty hour work week … for SAFETY reasons.

  • jimamrhein

    I Just Have This To Say; Mr. Schammer & Paddie, IT’s Time You LEAVE PRESIDENT TRUMP’S CABINET PICKS ALONE!!! “THE PAST 8 YEARS WAS NUTHIN’ BUT A DISASTER THANKS TO YOUR KIND”!!! “LET HIM DO HIS JOB & MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS & KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT CONCERNING THE PRESIDENT’S CHOICE FOR SUPREME COURT JUSTICE”!!! HE MAY HELP ELIMINATE THE CORRUPTION THAT’S PLAGUED OUR COUNTRY THE PAST COUPLE DECADES”!!! Jim

      AND GUESS WHO HAD TO RESIGN WHEN IT HIT THE FAN?

      Donald Trump’s national security adviser, Michael Flynn, has resigned over his contacts with Russia, the White House has announced.

      Mr Flynn is alleged to have discussed US sanctions with the Russian ambassador before Mr Trump took office.

      He is said to have misled officials about the conversation.

      Earlier, US media reported that the Justice Department had warned the White House about the contacts late last month.

      They said that Mr Flynn might be vulnerable to Russian blackmail.

      Senior Democrats had called for Mr Flynn to be fired.

      It is illegal for private citizens to conduct US diplomacy, and the calls
      happened late last year before Mr Flynn was appointed to the
      administration.

      The national security adviser is appointed by the president to serve as his or her chief adviser on international affairs and defense.

      SO, WHAT DID DJT KNOW AND WHEN DID HE KNOW IT?
