Zing! But, wait, what? Why the crocodile tears from prospective Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel?
Schumer says Hagel "almost had tears in his eyes" when he explained to him why Jews were so offended by "Jewish lobby" comment

@maggiepolitico Sure, previous records and unreleased documents say Hagel is an anti-Semite but now he cries crocodile tears for Jews

As we reported during his bumbling and buffoonish Secretary of Defense hearing (even called a train wreck by actor Rob Lowe), Chuck Hagel made his atrocious beliefs about Israel quite clear already. But, you know, Senator Cruz!

Twitter users aren’t buying the crocodile tears. They are, however, investing in some hilarious mockery.
Hagel had tears in his eyes to hear that talking about Jewish control of Washington might be upsetting to Jews, Schumer says. Unbelievable.

@Doc_0 If you fear a nuclear attack, you might try using a whistle, or callbox.

This will surely terrify our enemies. RT @politico: Schumer: Chuck Hagel ‘almost had tears’ in meeting.

The big question remains: What about his utter incompetence?
Remember, the best reason to oppose Hagel? He's an unqualified idiot. http://t.co/BQMFNE6d

If anything should cause “tears,” that should.
