Chuck Schumer Cut In Front Of Mitch McConnell And Became A Meme

·2 min read

Twitter users got a kick out of Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s (D-N.Y.) lighthearted power move over Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) this week.

Viral video (above) shows McConnell walking down a long corridor in the U.S. Capitol to a lectern for a news conference. But, seemingly from out of nowhere, Schumer enters the screen from the left and beats him to it.

“The prerogatives of the majority,” the New York Democrat cracked.

McConnell was filmed laughing in a corner.

When his turn to talk finally came, the Kentucky Republican referenced his predecessor Bob Dole’s quote about “the most dangerous place in Washington to be is between Chuck Schumer and a microphone.”

MSNBC’s Ari Melber set the moment to the Megan Thee Stallion and Beyoncé song “Savage.”
