Chuck Schumer Caught on Hot Mic with Grim Midterm Prediction


With the midterm elections now less than two weeks away, there is an endless stream of wild speculation occurring in regard to just which way the contest is going to go.

For months, we heard about a “red wave” coming to crash Congress, in which the Republican Party looked prepared to seize control of both the House and the Senate.  Then, for weeks on end it appeared as though the media was suggesting that the Democrats were making serious gains in the polls.

But now, as we approach the 11th hour, even some prominent liberals aren’t so sure about their chances.

Senate majority leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) was caught Thursday on a hot mic discussing Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman’s highly criticized debate performance against Dr. Mehmet Oz on Tuesday evening.

“We’re in danger in that seat,” Schumer told President Joe Biden in Syracuse, New York. It’s unclear which seat he is referring to, however.

Schumer goes on to tell the president that “the debate didn’t hurt us too much in Pennsylvania. So that’s good.”

The debate in question was largely seen as an abysmal failure for Fetterman, whose recovery from a recent stroke has left him with cognitive issues that made his performance difficult at times to watch.
