Schumer: Everyone Welcome in Queens – Except Donald Trump

March 4, 2020 By Michael Dorgan

U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer told crowds at the Sunnyside Woodside St Pats For All parade Sunday that Donald Trump is not welcome in Queens.

Schumer, wearing an Irish tricolored sash, walked the streets of Sunnyside and Woodside at the parade “For All” with his supporters and yelled through a bull horn:

“Let’s hear it for diversity for Queens. We include everybody, except there’s one person we don’t include… Donald Trump. We want him out of here,” he said.

“In Queens we believe in inclusiveness and diversity, Donald Trump doesn’t, he can leave Queens any day of the week.”

President Trump grew up in Queens and his childhood home is only about 9 miles east of Sunnyside, in the neighborhood of Jamaica Estates.

“Let’s hear it for the LGBT community who we’re proud of, including my daughter and her wife,” he was also heard bull horning.

An estimated 120 groups consisting of about 2,000 people took part in the event which continues to grow in size and stature attracting an influx of high-profile politicians such as Mayor Bill de Blasio, Council Speaker Corey Johnson and Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Carolyn Maloney.

When asked if he would support Bernie Sanders as nominee Schumer responded: “Yes, I’ll support whoever wins, we gotta beat Trump.”

“We just gotta beat him and I don’t know who’s the strongest but whoever wins the primary I’ll support.”

Earlier Schumer told festive goers in his pre-parade speech:

“What we stand for in Queens, what we stand for in New York, what we stand for in America is diversity and inclusiveness.”

“And we stand here together today to tell all those son of a guns in Washington, when you pick on any of us, you pick on all of us.”

“Donald Trump take that, we are going to beat you in every way.”

Hey “Get Real” person who doesn’t have a Real Name!?
The Stock Market was Tanking because, Trump is lying about the Seriousness the Pandemic, sending Mixed Messages & Disregarding the Infectious Diseases Specialist Advise!! And Claimed that the Coronavirus was “a Hoax”???
Trump just said, he “Takes No Responsibility” for his Actions and Lack of Leadership???
Ok, so you’re 59 years old and have lived in Queens all your life. And your Point is?? I’ve also lived in Queens most of my life and was Born & Educated in this Country! If you must know and if your inference was Disparaging!!
The Truth is that Not only is Queens going Down Hill but the Entire Nation. Thanks to Trump the “Idiot in Chief”.
The Best thing Trump can do is Resign immediately for the Betterment of the Country because come November 3rd, Trump is “Fired”!

Hey Rodrigo, the stock market will tank no matter who is president. Before Trump became president, nobody cared where he was from.I’m 59 and have lived in Queens my whole life, I can tell you Queens is going down hill and fast.

To our shame & embarrassment Trump is from Queens. Exactly, from Jamaica Estates, Not Sunnyside/Woodside, Thank goodness!! In 2016 Trump didn’t Win NYC or the State and he won’t Win in 2020.
Trump Constantly makes Derogatory remarks about everyone, but when Senator Schumer makes one comment, Trump supporters jump all over him. That’s a Double Standard!!
But let’s get Real, we are in a Global Pandemic with the Covid-19 aka: Coronavirus. Without a doubt this will get Worse before it gets better and Millions will be Affected!
We are Far behind in terms of Testing, Thanks to Trump & his Administration. Trump doesn’t believe in Science because he doesn’t understand it. And the Reason he doesn’t understand Science is due to his limited Education, Experience and overall Knowledge! Trump said, He didn’t know that the Flu kills people?? But yet, his Grandfather died from the Flu. This kind of Ignorance is Dangerous. EXTREMELY DANGEROUS!
And when the The Infectious Diseases Specialist give their Expert Advice, Trump Contradicts them, giving mixed messages & Bad Advice. This is Down Right Reckless and likely Criminal.
And the Stock Market is Reacting, by Plummeting!
We all Know Trump is a Pathological liar, but he can’t lie his way out of this one! We need a True Leader and Trump doesn’t have Good Morals, Values or leadership Skills; Con Artist Never do!!
So, if this Pandemic Escalates in the Worse Case Scenario; we as a Nation might Not be So Concerned with the 2020 Elections.
But More so with our Health & that of our Families, lost Income, Lack of Food & Water, Lack of Education, losing Homes and Heartbreakingly burying our Loved ones!! Just to Name a Few!
Thanks to Trump!!!

Trump for all

Can we all agree that trump is racist though? Queens is made up of 1.1 million immigrants (white, black, Asian, Hispanic). We are well known for our diversity (melting pot of the world), so it is simply ironic that he’s from Queens. Like own up to it Trump!

If you want to support Trump, fine, but just accept that your supporting a racist.

Why has Trump completely failed to deliver one of his central campaign promises?

With a Republican senate, Trump hasn’t built a single inch of Great Wall.

He promised Mexico would make a “one-time payment” for it, a lie Trump lovers easily believed.

He threw a tantrum and shut down the government to beg for money. Another failure, costing the taxpayers millions.

Now he’s begging Democrats to add more taxes to pay for it.

Trump can’t secure our nation’s borders, but it’s Schumer you’re mad about? Sad!

While Chuck Schumer and Donald Trump try to out bully each other and try to grab the media’s attention the working class, the poor and minority groups continue to suffer. I wish the focus would be on this virus going around and getting Americans a free universal healthcare program. Perhaps. our elected officials and voters will wise up if it continues to spread and people will not be able to afford the proper treatment.

Just last year, Trump said progressive congresswomen should “go back” and try to fix the “crime infested places” they “originally came from” before telling the U.S. government how to handle its problems. Then, after his comments were denounced as racist, he doubled down. Senator Chuck Schumer has every right to send a message to the city, state, and country that racism will not be tolerated and that racists people are not welcomed here. We are all for Diversity, equality and against racism!

Perhaps Senator Schumer forgot about civil discourse in America. Democrat, Republican or Independent, Liberal or Conservative, we have a long held tradition of respect for our government institutions, be it the President or Supreme Court. Perhaps Schumer missed attending his Civics class at James Madison Brooklyn High School, Harvard College and Harvard Law School.
Schumer’s continued arrogance “that it is my way or the highway” is disappointing to those who are looking for bipartisan cooperation and compromise. No wonder political gridlock continues in Washington. Perhaps Schumer is part of the problem as opposed to part of the solution. Voters should remember this in 2022 when he stands for re-election.

You’ve heard of Trump Derangement Syndrome? The most severe cases are known as Trump DeNiro Syndrome. Chuckie Cheese is approaching that depth of idiocy. Google his C-SPAN comments about open borders 10 years ago and compare to now. He has completely lost the script and his grip on reality.

disrespecting his elected president should be grounds for termination of employment and instant loss of pension. the but the dems are great at passing laws that protect them from any accountability. its why this city is stuck in the 1800’s.

James – The only one in this comment stream and article to be convicted by a court of law for fraud and scamming is Trump. Convicted by multiple courts. Trump was convicted back in the 90’s for stock fraud. More recently Trump was convicted of fraud with his Trump University scam and forced by a judge to pay restitution to his victims in the amount of $28 Million. Another judge and court made Trump and his criminal family pay restitution of $2 Million to veterans who he beat out of money with a Foundation scam. Convicted of crimes and only forced to return some of the money and take an ethics class. Talk about different sets of rule and justice.

What a DUD Schumer is. He’s so blind to his own hate that he doesn’t even know how great President Trump has been to all Americans including Queens residents.

He should look at himself since he’s not done anything for us Queens residents.

I find Schumer to be a wolf in sheep’s clothing. He preaches goodness, kindness, and inclusiveness but whips off his costume only to continually take swipes at the current administration. I am finding Schumer to be more and more dislike able as each day goes by. My advice to Schumer is instead of trying to divide, try kindness and show some class. Remember inclusive means all, leaving just one out means non inclusive!!

Full Time Job: Crying about Trump

Kinda feel bad for this guy, it must be exhausting to wake everyday with a mission to oust the guy from office and to fail every time. Has this guy actually done any work for NY State the past 3 1/2 years other that this one mission he’s on.

He is pathetic and, as a Senator, completely useless.

Partisan politics as usual by Senator Chuck Schumer. Despite being very unpopular in New York, as a native New Yorker who grew up in Queens, Donald Trump should be allowed to attend any parade in Queens or any other borough in New York if he wants to.
In addition, I read on Wikipedia that Chuck Schumer voted in favor of the Defense of the Federal Defense Of Marriage Act in 1996. If this is correct, this means that Senator Schumer a hypocrite. Becoming in favor of gay and lesbian rights only when it is politically expedient does not make him a champion for diversity and inclusiveness.

The idiot Schumer – “we don’t want him here . . . we want him out of here.” We want YOU out of here, Schumer. Schumer does not speak for me or others. He turned what should have been a celebration of Irish culture into a bash-Trump event. Schumer is shameless. And that is why this parade is a big farce.

Schumer is a blow hard. I’m sorry I wasn’t there to boo him. He has done nothing to help this state and is a total fraud and phony. The disgraced Anthony Weiner learned well from his master, Chuck Schumer. Schumer is not welcome here and he thinks only of himself and his own power. Tell him to go back to his fellow phonies in Park Slope. They deserve him.

Donald Trump is a Manhattan snob from Queens who actually has a disdain for the borough. He’s never admitted he’s from Queens. I believe the last time he visited the borough (other then when he was using an airport) is when his mother Mary had her bag stolen in a mall parking lot.,I couldn’t tell you how long ago that was but it’s way back there.,
