Chuck Schumer fires staffers shortly before Christmas

From Fox News: Incoming Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, smarting from the Democratic Party’s big November losses, is blaming the messengers.

With Christmas days away, nearly every member of the Senate Democratic Media Center has been fired, a senior Democratic aide confirmed to Fox News. Schumer swung the axe on Friday, according to Politico, which first obtained “goodbye” emails from staffers, including some with decades’ experience.

The move comes amid plans to revamp the unit, which handles video content, in an effort to help the Senate Democratic caucus get their message out in the New Year. The party not only lost the presidential race, it failed to capture the Senate or House and lost state legislative races throughout the country.

Critics, including some within the party, say the party has become dominated by East and West coast elites who can’t connect with working class folks in the country’s interior.

A senior democratic aide told FoxNews.com that Schumer decided Senate Democrats would need to produce sharper, more creative digital content. “As a result, we are bringing in new people with expertise in digital videos and content for Facebook, Twitter, and other social media,” a senior democratic aide told FoxNews.com. “The mission of the revamped SDMC will be to produce more content to make content more creative and catchy, and to do so faster than we’ve been able to in the past.”

The timing could not be worse, given the holidays. But the 115th Congress begins just two days after the New Year, and Schumer apparently wanted to start fresh, and hit the ground running.

“We don’t comment on personnel decisions,” a spokesman from the Democratic Policy and Communications Committee (DPCC), which serves as an advisory board to the Democratic Leadership in which Sen. Schumer will serve, told FoxNews.com in an email.

The aide would not share the number of employees fired, or the official number of employees working at the Senate Democratic Media Center.

A Republican Senate aide called the timing “brutal.”

“Job creation has never been a strength of the Democrats,” a Republican aide told FoxNews.com. “But firing staffers just days before the holidays so they can play catch-up is pretty brutal.”

  1. Chuck Schumer is such an odious human being . . . just another pressing reason why we need term limits!

  2. Auntie Lulu is absolutely right! Up-Chuck is the scum of the Elitist Scum. Father of Lies. As bad as Dingy Harry, but just a little smarter. He is better at hiding his craziness.

    “Critics, including some within the party, say the party has become dominated by East and West coast elites who can’t connect with working class folks in the country’s interior.” This is true. The Elites only care about Their Agenda! They do NOT CARE about people, only as Political Pawns that they can maneuver against any one or group that resists their intended “Change”. After 8 years of Obama and his constant Usurpation of Power they have become totally demented in their quest for dominance and dictatorship.
    They refuse to see that THEY and their AGENDA is what We the People are rejecting. But typical Elitist Response – blame the troops! Fire everyone and round up a new crop of peasants to whip into line. It won’t help, but it gives them new peasants to whip.

  3. There must be a mistake, I bet it was a Republican Trump supporter that is being confused with Chuck, because Chuck is kind and only cares about the people.

  4. The Dems need to reinvent themselves. They’ve become as corrupt as the Republicans (I’m an Independent, and I couldn’t in good conscience vote for either Trumpler or Killary). We need to put both parties out of their corrupt misery. They’ve failed us. There are so few good people of high morals, ethics and integrity left in politics, we might as well get their bosses – WE, The PEOPLE – and physically remove, then incarcerate them. We need to expose the Lie of 9/11, the Lie of Sandy Hook, and hold these perverts accountable.

  7. They said: “The mission of the revamped SDMC will be to produce more content to make content more creative and catchy, and to do so faster than we’ve been able to in the past.” Isn’t this like putting lipstick on a pig? Or, perhaps, like putting lipstick on a skunk.

    • Chuckie apparently doesn’t get that it isn’t the medium, it’s the message. Poor Democrats, so out of touch on so many levels and I am so enjoying watching the meltdown!

  11. schumer wants to help the Senate Democratic caucus get their message out in the New Year? Hello. The message IS out. And it wasn’t one that anybody wanted to hear. Or that any thinking person cares about. Canned crap is still crap.

  12. First, the truth: Sen. Schumer has done some good work on behalf of the consumer.

    That being said, I state my belief that Schumer is a Mossad agent, or, a Mossad asset, and that it’s part of his job to make sure America remains, within his appointed purview, “Israel’s Bitch.” As long as he does his job and makes no waves and doesn’t rock the boat, he’s got a job for life.

    Not enough deep intell has been done on Chuckie. It’s high time it has been done, and published: He’s flown under the radar for too long. This IS NOT “McCarthyism”: We need to know where his allegiance is.

    I have HOWLED from the rooftops about George H.W. Bush: I am no St. John the Baptist, of course, but I have been “a voice crying in the wilderness”: Rush Limbaugh has had all the sheep HYPNOTIZED for decades. But there are millions of people that JUST. WON’T. WAKE. UP. And I speak the truth: Not even Donald Trump can do it.

    Just a word to the wise.

    • P.S.:
      Let us remember that Schumer has done nothing out of the ordinary: Ever since the Eisenhower days, corporations and businesses of all sorts ROUTINELY laid off and fired or excised workers BY THE THOUSANDS at this time of year—usually on December 26th—with only one week’s notice. So, Yes, Schumer may be a bastard, but he’s following decades’ old established precedent. Precedent designed to buffet our (once) collective Christian Faith. “Sorry, Chuckie…”

  13. I bet this backfires on his A$$. days before CHRISTmas and he fires everybody. People that know where the bodies are buried might just start talking to the public about a lot of cover up crap that has been going on in the Dumbocrat congress!!!!!
