Trump bashed Democrats for obstructing his Cabinet picks in his daily morning tweetstorm


In Tuesday's edition of President Trump's near-daily morning tweetstorm, he took aim at House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), whom he dubbed "Fake Tears Chuck."

Democrats held a rally on the steps of the Supreme Court on Monday night to protest Trump's controversial travel ban. However, Pelosi and Schumer could barely be heard over the crowd thanks to a faulty microphone.

Trump jumped on the opportunity.

He also took the opportunity to demand Democrats stop obstructing his Cabinet picks.

That tweet seemed like a continuation of a Monday night tweet.

Trump's talk of obstruction is particularly poignant in light of the firing of acting Attorney General Sally Yates Monday night. Yates was only set to stay on until Trump's AG nominee Jeff Sessions was confirmed. 

Sessions has been criticized by Democrats given racially charged comments in the past, at one point calling the NAACP "un-American." Schumer said Monday he would vote against Sessions' confirmation. 

Schumer addressed the controversy over Sessions on Twitter late Monday.
