Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) trolled Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) in a speech on the Senate floor on Wednesday where he read Schumer’s previous defenses of the filibuster.

Cotton’s remarks come as Democrats, including President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, have attacked the filibuster in recent days as they struggle to pass their agenda through the U.S. Senate.



These “are powerful words — but they’re not mine,” Cotton said. “Every word of my speech today was originally spoken by my esteemed colleague, the senior senator from New York, Chuck Schumer. Senator Schumer spoke so eloquently in defense of the Senate’s rules, customs, and traditions when the fortunes of his party looked a little different.”:snip:
