This third wave in the cold weather with the combination of the flu, and we’re sitting on our hands and that’s because Donald Trump is such a — pardon my saying, I know you have a very nice show — such a moron,” Schumer told SiriusXM’s “The Joe Madison Show.”

Schumer argued that the federal government needs to tackle many pressing needs, such as hospitals getting overwhelmed with new patients, and nurses and other workers needing protective equipment.

The comment was one of the most explicit shots Schumer has taken at Trump’s intelligence and a reflection of how bitter the political atmosphere has become in Washington.
