Senator Chuck Schumer appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” and Joe Scarborough asked him if he would repudiate Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid for calling philanthropist David Koch “un-American.” Schumer tried to wiggle his way out of it, but Scarborough (to his credit) wouldn’t let him. Schumer finally had to admit that, yes, he does believe it’s anti-American for Mr. Koch to exercise his First Amendment rights. “I think what Harry Reid was saying was the actions are un-American. And they are, and they should change,” he said. But that’s not all, he also said “David Koch’s commercials, I don’t think they should be allowed.” But of course he has no problem with commercials funded by left wing millionaires. What a jerk.
