Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) used the deadly Uvalde, Texas shooting to repeatedly vilify Make-America-Great-Again (“MAGA”) Republicans, in a Senate speech pitching his "Domestic Terrorism Protection Act" on Thursday.

“No amount of bloodshed seems to be enough for MAGA Republicans,” Schumer said, adding that Americans are sick of hearing “the same string of hollow words from the MAGA Republicans that never lead to action.”

“MAGA Republicans don't want to get the results,” Schumer claimed. He smeared MAGA Republicans again while praising Texas Democrat gubernatorial candidate Beto O’Rourke for interrupting a press conference by Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott:

“Yesterday, after Beto O'Rourke confronted the Texas Governor Abbott's press conference, the MAGA Republican gave them empty platitudes about healing and hope.”

Schumer, then, accused Abbott’s “MAGA buddies” of being too self-involved to address gun violence:

“Governor Abbott, will you ask your MAGA buddies and your NRA pals to put aside their agendas and think of someone other than themselves?”

“People are sick of mourning again and again, while listening to the same string of hollow words from the MAGA Republicans that never lead to action,” Schumer said.
