After seeing how quickly the mainstream media declared Joe Biden president-elect, it looks like Sen. Chuck Schumer thinks he can press his luck even further, and he’s using the COVID-19 pandemic to insist that hearings on Biden’s cabinet picks begin immediately after the Georgia runoffs, before Biden is inaugurated.
BREAKING: Sen. Schumer says Senate should begin confirmation hearings for Biden's Cabinet BEFORE inauguration:

We only have 1 President at a time. President Trump is president until Jan 20. Pound sand @SenSchumer

Yo… This guy is wild. Confirmation only comes with rite of passage. The time for that rite certainly hasn't arrived and it definitely hasn't passed yet. If you know, you know…

Looooool, lets claim crisis and then see what we can get away with again.

They're obviously panicked if they think the Senate will agree to that before 1/20.

Not happening, but a funny suggestion

But everybody wants Biden to be president today, so let’s just swear him in now.
Shadow government in plain sight

Sen. Schumer should watch what he's saying, cause what he's saying sounds like a request for a coup.

You can't do that.
And there's no actual need.

Why is it so imperative to hand the reins over to Biden, whose plan to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic is essentially President Trump’s plan?
