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.

Nancy Pelosi and Fake Tears Chuck Schumer held a rally at the steps of The Supreme Court and mic did not work (a mess)-just like Dem party!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 31, 2017
Trump jumped on the opportunity.
When will the Democrats give us our Attorney General and rest of Cabinet! They should be ashamed of themselves! No wonder D.C. doesn't work!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 31, 2017
He also took the opportunity to demand Democrats stop obstructing his Cabinet picks.
The Democrats are delaying my cabinet picks for purely political reasons. They have nothing going but to obstruct. Now have an Obama A.G.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 31, 2017
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.
Firing of Sally Yates underscores how impt it is to have an Attorney General who'll stand up to the WhiteHouse when they violate the law.— Chuck Schumer (@SenSchumer) January 31, 2017
Schumer addressed the controversy over Sessions on Twitter late Monday.
