Chuck Schumer Sums Up ‘Scared’ Donald Trump’s SOTU With 4 Little Words

The Senate minority leader said Trump had “something to hide.”

Senate Minority Leader  Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) described President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address as “sort of like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.”

Schumer told John Berman, host of CNN’s “New Day,” on Wednesday that there was “very little nice to say about” the president’s speech to the joint session of Congress.

“The president was political, divisive, calculating, even nasty at times,” said Schumer, summarizing Trump’s 80-minute address in four words. “You can’t talk about comity and working together and give a speech that is so divisive ― that just doesn’t fly.”

Schumer also called out Trump for loving “hot-button issues that inflamed his base but divided America.”

“This speech was more of the same,” Schumer said. “The most enthusiastic parts, the parts that seemed to have the most weight, were the divisive parts.”

He likened Trump to “a 10-year-old in a schoolyard in Brooklyn or Queens” in response to the president reportedly calling him a “nasty son of a bitch” during a private lunch for television anchors just hours before the event.
