Robert Patillo, sorry I had to laugh at this for a minute… OK so Patillo stated that Democrats have “no reason” to try and create bipartisan deals with President Donald Trump because he believes that next year, whack-a-doo Maxine Waters will lead the house and Chuck Schumer will lead the senate… riveting stuff, Patillo…
“Democrats looking at a president hovering around a 30 percent approval rating have no reason to run into a burning building and try to put it out, when they should instead just wait for 2018 when they have Speaker of the House Maxine Waters and Senate leader Chuck Schumer,” Patillo, an attorney, civil rights activist and Atlanta radio host, told Fox News’ “America’s News Headquarters.”
As reported by Fox News:
Waters, a California congresswoman, has been one of Trump’s most outspoken Democratic critics, with her calls to impeach him creating buzz about a possible 2020 presidential bid.
Patillo’s comment presumes Democrats next year would retake control of the House and Senate and that Waters would unseat now-House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi, of California, who has been the chamber’s top Democrat for roughly the past 11 years.
Schumer, of New York, is now the Senate minority leader.
Democrats next year would have to win a net total of about 35 House seats.
Republicans how hold a 52-48 majority in the Senate, but Democrats next year must defend 25 seats, compared to just eight for Republicans.
