Chuck Schumer Cut From Senate Softball Team For Lack of Hustle
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer was cut from the Senate Democrats’ softball team. Schumer, a below-average player, had been riding the bench for most of the season. The last straw finally came after he didn’t jog out a potential single and was called out at first base. Many of his own fans were not happy with the lack of effort and let him know on Twitter.
Schumer had this to say: “You know this is totally unfair. My father is going to be calling the coach later because I am really good. I could play in college and I should actually be playing more.” Schumer then said he didn’t care and added later that he was going to get ready for basketball season instead.
Schumer, who routinely complains about balls and strikes, didn’t say anything today, as he also struck out three times today. Many expected Schumer to say something to Umpire Mitch McConnell. McConnell is known for having a strict strike box when it comes to lefty hitters. The New York senator decided not to argue and retreated back to his team's dugout.
The Senate softball team is not hurt by this move. The Democratic Donkeys have a young strong line up led by Kamala Harris. Harris has an untouchable fastball is now a fan favorite among young fans. The team hopes to add more players in next months Midterm draft. Senate Minority Schumer on the other hand, probably should not expect to see his jersey retired anytime soon.
