Schumer: How Could 74M People Vote for Such a Despicable Human Being as Trump?
'He always appeals to the dark side of human nature'
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer condemned the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump during an event with Roosevelt Island and Upper East Side community leaders.
Schumer described Trump as a “racist” and “vile” man.
“How could 74 million people vote for such a despicable human being as Donald Trump?” Schumer asked in the video.
“I don’t care if you’re a liberal or a conservative, Democrat or Republican; he is a vile man.”
“He is dishonest, divisive."
"That’s what he loves to do. Just divide and have people fighting with each other," he added.
"He’s a racist,” Schumer claimed.
“And he always appeals to the dark side of human nature.”

Schumer is just one of many Demcorats who belittle Trump supporters.
Hillary Clinton called Trump voters a “basket of deplorable," a statement that possibly cost her the election in 2016.
"You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right?" Clinton said at the time.
"The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic – you name it. And, unfortunately, there are people like that. And he has lifted them up."
"He has given voice to their websites that used to only have 11,000 people, now have 11 million. He tweets and retweets offensive, hateful, mean-spirited rhetoric."
"Now some of those folks, they are irredeemable, but thankfully, they are not America."
Sen. Mitt Romney said that 47 percent of voters would vote for former President Obama “no matter what."
"There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. That, that’s an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what."
“And I mean the president starts out with 48, 49 percent … he starts off with a huge number,” Romney continued.
Following the Capitol riots on January 6, Schumer blasted Trump and “the people who follow him."
"But make no mistake, make no mistake, my friends, today’s event did not happen spontaneously."
"The president, who promoted conspiracy theories and motivated these thugs, the president, who extorted them to come to our nation’s capital, egged them on, he hardly ever discourages violence [sic], and more often encourages it [sic]."
