Add New York Assemblyman Dov Hikind of Brooklyn to the list of Democrats distancing themselves from the party's leaders. The lawmaker slammed Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Thursday for his attacks on President Trump in a new fundraising email. Instead of "villainizing" the White House and the "hard right," Hikind suggested Schumer and his fellow Democrats at least admit that the economy is improving and that there are radicals in their own party. He wrote his suggestions in a Facebook post.
"You forgot to tell us about the economy," Hikind tells Schumer. "As good as its been, economists expect even more growth through the end of the year. Thats very good news, Senator.
You forgot to tell us about unemployment, which is lower than it has been in decades, while economic confidence is at a 17-year high. Its also at a record low for minorities. Thats very good news, Senator."
Hikind goes on to list other Trump accomplishments, such as low unemployment, backing out of the Iran Deal and facilitating a better relationship with North Korea.
Please "restore sanity and honesty" to the party, Hikind pleaded with Schumer.
Other Democrats like Senate candidate Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) have turned on Schumer, despite his giving her his support.
"I'm not going to vote for him, she told Politico.
Schumer still seems to have more friends than Pelosi though, who has been spurned by progressive candidates all over the country. Just how much distance can these Democrats place between themselves and the unpopular House Minority Leader though, when some of them have donated to her and have voted for her agenda?
That’s good, but Hikind is a long-time DINO (Democrat in Name Only) who has for years said good things about Republicans and Conservatives. Unfortunately he has to run on a D ticket.
I know Hikind. He is from the Boro Park area of Brooklyn.
He’s a conservative Democrat.
You busted my bubble but like you say it’s still good. :^)
Maybe there will be a re-election landslide.
If good news is not acknowledged, nobody will notice. At least that’s the hope of the democratic party leadership, and the Hollywood crowd, and the liberal media.
Support Free Republic, Folks!
Sinema is bisexual and is counting on the GOP-e nominating Martha McCain (sic) to be the female Flake.
We get really crappy choices here in Arizona.
Their internal polling must be pretty grim.
how would a dem in arizona vote for someone in new york?
He seems like the Joe Lieberman type.
I honestly don’t know why Hikind is a dummoscrp. He is an Orthodox Jew with very conservative values. THAT is why I can certainly see him parting company with the likes of Schumer, but it still leaves the question of why Hikind is still “D”.
I love this. Rats are trying to get off the ship. But they forgot, the ship is out to see. It’s a long swim to shore, libbies.
Dems are using good cop...bad cop strategy
..cement the lunatic left and sjw and low info dufii...then go after moderate demos and demo leaning independents and viola...you can win elections...then go back to cementing their state paid job by voting to give their voters free (i.e tax revenue taken from you)money....very disingenuous
So there are a couple of Democrats who can think.
Shocking these days...
That’s very interesting.
Considering how the DemonRATS maintain better party discipline than does the GOP, the very idea of a DINO seems far fetched.
Still, I expect there might be a handful who haven’t abandoned reason and morals entirely.
Oh Oh! Another candidate for the Fort Marcy park treatment...
They turning on each other instead of defending their own.
And I believe it is all because of Donald Trump. He's driving the democRATS insane.
