As we told you earlier, Sen. Chuck Schumer caused a few double-takes with this tweet:
I donâ€™t agree very often with Chief Justice Roberts, especially his partisan decisions which seem highly political on Citizens United, Janus, and Shelby.
But I am thankful today that heâ€”almost alone among Republicansâ€”stood up to President Trump and for an independent judiciary.

Frank Luntz summed up just what Schumer managed to accomplish there:

Most impressive, Sen. Schumer!
I canâ€™t imagine why people think that politicians are insincere. https://t.co/qC82YukkjO

Weâ€™ve come to expect nothing less from Chuck.
