Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) privately urged President Trump in a phone call earlier this week to nominate federal Judge Merrick B. Garland, then President Barack Obamas third nominee to the Supreme Court who was summarily shunned by Senate Republicans in 2016, to replace retiring Justice Anthony M. Kennedy.
Trump had called Schumer on Tuesday afternoon for a Supreme Court-centered conversation that lasted less than five minutes, according to a person familiar with the call. Schumer, the person said, pressed the president to name Garland to succeed Kennedy, arguing doing so would help unite the country.

Garland is such a perfect swamp creature, it would be almost funny for Trump to try this. He may as well! He’ll have plenty of other chances to appoint!!
I’m certain Trump will listen to your advice chucky.
I’m thinking Trump’s gonna pretty much ignore you, Chuckie. Indeed, the day’s coming when everyone’s going to ignore you.
I’m so glad Schumer is concerned about Trump’s legacy.</s>
Schumer continues to prove that he is an idiot...
Uh huh. “I know you won the election but do things our way anyway and maybe we won’t yell so loud.” Sorry, Chuckie.
LOL!! Chuckie is as funny as his niece Amy!
When you begin to see pink goo...... it’s time to stop whipping a dead horse
Chuckie “The Schmeckel” Schumer, never ceases to amaze me with the crap he comes up with.
Better yet, POTUS Trump should nominate Any Schumer to the Court.
You think Trump nominating a Obama pick would buy us anything?
Schumer is a example of someone who can achieve great things and remain worthless.
>>Schumer also warned the president that nominating a jurist who would be hostile to Roe vs. Wade and to Obamas signature health-care law, would be cataclysmic and damage Trumps legacy.<<
Not parody, right?
Hilarious! I wouldn’t appoint Garland if only to poss off Shmucky Shoomer.
Isn’t that precious? Scummer is worried about Donald Trump’s legacy ...
Schumer: “And if you can’t go with Garland, I’m willing to settle for Eric Holder.”
