is this some kinda gotcha moment on Schumer or Trump?  I don't get why this is a big deal to the average person.  I can see ow Trumpers might be upset, but everyone else is gonna think it is a big nothing burger.

It is funny, not a scandal.

He sounds downright giddy knowing he can play Trump
 
2017-09-14 02:33:39 PM  
He admits the President likes the Democrats and that the President understood he should zig-zag going left and right to get things done

That's an admission?  It sounds more like an observation to me.  But is it a Benghazi level observation?

Putting on the tinfoil hat here, but what if this is all according to plan...
Dems and most independents (offer not good for Fark Independents(c)) are going to hate Trump no matter what deals he makes.
The only loyal support he gets is from hardcore Rs... who have been conditioned to never negotiate with Ds.
Donny starts making deals with the Ds. for some reason.
Not just any deals.... deals on issues the Rs hate with the power of a thousand suns such as raising taxes and legalizing DREAMERs and suddenly his hardcore support vanishes.
Sounds like a recipe for impeachment...

Nope.. Trump will tell his idiot supporters that he was always in favor of letting the dreamers stay and that he successfully used it to negotiate the best deal which includes sealing the border to keep the Mexican rapists and drug dealers out... and they'll believe him.

Schumer deserves to be primaried,
 
2017-09-14 03:50:00 PM  
"Here's what I told him. I said 'Mr. President, you're much better off if you can sometimes step right, sometimes step left. If you have to step in just one direction, you're boxed ... He gets that," Schumer said.
The senator also said of Trump: "He'll make us more productive, too."


This sounds pretty intentional, tbh. Oh, Trump so smart to work with Democrats. Everything is so much better when he shiats in Paul Ryan's gym bag.

Schumer plays Trump in ways that Congressman Liftbro and Senator Yertle can only dream of and he's a shill?

Assuming that the DACA deal happens, Schumer and Pelosi will have twice gotten exactly what they wanted from D2S and given up nothing of value in return.

Occam's Razor compels me to believe that this was just standard talk.  Mostly meaningless.  Basic observations and flattery.

However ... part of me really wants to believe that Schumer knew he was on mic, and thought to himself "you know, this will really wind up the conservatives.  I'll just infer that Donny-Two-Scoops really loves the Democrats, and we'll see if it stirs the pot.  Doesn't have to be true or not."  And, sure enough, in moments there is a crisis of faith.

If that was deliberate, and the general fracturing of loyalty was the intention, that would actually qualify as seven dimensional chess or whatever.  Because it is a move with very little risk to Schumer and his camp but high strategic value if it disrupts Schumer's political adversaries.  But I doubt anyone in Washington right now is that sophisticated in their strategems.  That environment does not seem to reward strategy, only fundraising and glad-handing and rabble rousing.

The conversation could have happened anywhere. But, it happened on CSPAN.

This isn't an 'accidental mic' moment. This is a 'sitting down in a constantly-broadcasted room' moment.

I'd call it the most interesting knife in history.

I've seen a few people suggest that but why in the world would any of the Republicans vote for it?  Even if Trump supported it they still have majorities and would have to allow the legislation to even be introduced wouldn't they?  I mean it's a fun fantasy but I just don't see why Ryan would even let it go to a vote.

What an "accident" Schumer had in "inadvertently" saying those things around a mic that he "didn't know" was hot.

If I had to place a bet on this, I'd lay it on the side of this thing being 100% deliberate.  It enrages and splits the right.  The left is unlikely to care.
