Few things scream BELTWAY ARROGANCE louder than Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer.
You’ll remember his putdown of fiscally responsible Americans on the floor of the Senate earlier this year when he derided taxpayer concerns about massive pork in the stimulus bill.
So, it’s no surprise he treats flight attendants the same way he treats every other ordinary, hard-working taxpayer: with utter contempt:
Sen. Chuck Schumer loves the sound of his own voice, but it carried a bit farther than he might have liked on the US Airways shuttle from New York to Washington on Sunday.
According to a House Republican aide who happened to be seated nearby, the notoriously chatty New York Democrat referred to a flight attendant as a “bitch” after she ordered him to turn off his phone before takeoff.
Schumer and his seatmate, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), were chatting on their phones before takeoff when an announcement indicated that it was time to turn off the phones.
Both senators kept talking.
Confirmed: Chuck Schumer is a first-class jerk.
