Senator Chuck Schumer — soon to be Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer — took to the floor Wednesday night and declared it a day that will live in infamy. Remember, this is the same Chuck Schumer who declares everything the darkest day. This is the same guy who said “generations of unborn will suffer” if Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed, and then declared her confirmation “one of the darkest days in the Senate’s 231-year history.” He also said passage of the GOP tax cuts was “one of the darkest days in the long history of this Senate.”
Here he is invoking Pearl Harbor:
Sen. Schumer compares today's events to Pearl Harbor:
"Franklin Roosevelt set a day aside that will live in infamy. Unfortunately, we can now add January 6, 2021 to that very short list of dates in American history that will live forever in infamy." pic.twitter.com/mVMrVbuxQ8

He can't hold a candle to Americans that lived through Pearl Harbor. What an insult.

They didn't reconvene hours later at Pearl Harbor.

Two broken windows and one dead protestor is the same as 2500 people dead. Great logic, there.

I don’t remember them reconvening pearl harbor after two hours. I think I need to read up on history. Clearly two hours after bombing, ship sinking, and 2400 Americans dead everybody just went on with their life after 2 hours.

You can always count on a Democrat to take a moment that could unify people and say something so stupid that it ruins the opportunity. https://t.co/U3l6L6XCGD

For a sitting senator to compare today to Pearl Harbor is an abomination.
