I guarantee you that the Communist News Network will bury this gaffe. If, on the other hand, it had come from the mouth of the lovely and talented former Governor of Alaska, every talking head and snark-meister on the air would have this at the top of the news.

What a moron.

He has a hard time with the Second Amendment, too.

But wait, let's give the guy a break, okay? Democrats are lawless, right? They don't bother with courts, unless they need them for some unconstitutional purpose. So of COURSE he'd forget about the Judicial branch.

And since Obama is hardly executive material, we can certainly forgive him for calling the Executive Branch the President branch.

In the liberal brain he’s correct. The courts are a sub-branch of the legislative and executive branches. That’s been their goal for decades and they’re almost there.

Actually there are four branches: Congress, the Supreme Court, the President and a fifth column media formerly known as the fourth estate.

No way that ignoramus could have scored 1600 on an SAT. No way.

I’d be surprised if he could get more than a 500.

Mommy and Daddy must have bought that score for him.

Or he simply lied.

Again.

Never, ever, trust the “intelligence” of somebody who brags about his SAT scores, especially 40 years later.

Well, it must have really shook him up when that unknown judicial branch ruled that Obamacare is unconstitutional today?

"I guarantee you that the Communist News Network will bury this gaffe..."

Maybe so, but we need to flood Schumer's office with "idiotgrams" chastising him for being so ignorant, and then DO A "CC" OF THE LETTER TO EVERY MAINSTREAM NEWS ORGANIZATION YOU CAN THINK OF....

Kind of hard to deny when EVERYBODY is seeing the same message...one of those buzzards will release just to "one-up" the others.

Send this over to Chris Tingle at PMSNBC—I’m sure he will have some non-politician liberal on to berate them about Schumer’s lack of knowledge.

I caught that while listening to the replay on CSPAN, and knew it would get play, everywhere save the MSM.

Schumer got reintroduced to that third branch an hour or so ago.

Liberals don't realize that there are actually four branches of government.

Executive, Legislative, Judicial, and the People.

Think about this concept for a moment:

Schumer is channeling Joe Biden.

UpChuck was just being honest, giving the progressive democrat definition he adheres to .. sort of ... he doesn't think the House is necessary now that his Nazi Pelicanosi is out of power there. The courts are a nuisance to the democrats.
