‘Disingenuous Dumpster Fireplace’ Grassley Blasted for Saying Biden Ought to ‘Have Management’ Over Home and Senate Dems

US Senator Chuck Grassley comes under fire after allegations that senators should take orders from their political party leaders. The Iowa Republican has been in Congress since 1975 and was the third successor to the presidency in his role as president pro tempore of the Senate until Thursday.

Senator Grassley, in his usual unique way of tweeting, claimed that President Joe Biden should have “control” over the Democrats in the House and Senate. The U.S. Constitution makes it clear that there are three separate branches of government, and nowhere does this suggest that the legislature is owed to the president or any other party leader.

“Pres Biden preaches unity and healing, while Dem leadership focuses on the impeachment of a former president. Isn’t Pres Biden in control of the Congress Democrats as the party leader? This move will surely slow down the Biden Cabinet’s affirmation / agenda + increase the divide, ”Grassley tweeted.

The Iowa Republican has been beaten up by many on social media for placing partisan politics above the control and balance of the U.S. Constitution and its three equal branches of government.

Have you heard of these “branches of government”? https://t.co/NPCgDCDDSh

Chuck was absent the day they attacked the capital to stop the elections and turn the country over to a fascist dictator. https://t.co/9ZOg2p4e2Y

Clear threat to filibusters / Grassley obstacles if we hold Trump accountable for violent insurgency.

The goal is to prevent an insurgent president from holding a federal office again and to show no tolerance for it in the future, genius. https://t.co/gOpQSvy3ne

Why not unite against the mobs who threatened to kill your colleagues, including the Vice President? It’s not that complicated. Uniting against people who encouraged a mob to kill their employees and destroy our Capitol should be the easiest decision of your life.

@ChuckGrassley openly advocates that @POTUS add partisan policy to its own accountability process as a separate branch …
It’s time for Senator Grassley, #Resign https://t.co/Zg9pNtMOwS

Impeachment and unity are completely consistent, Chuck. If you use the right process with fascist agitants, you will get rid of other fascist agitants who are sowing discord. If you are facing more discord than retaliation, Chuck, I must conclude that you are a fascist agitant intent on sowing it. https://t.co/527Ujriph2

Dems don’t do the GOP’s Dear Leader stuff. It is the job of Congress and SCotUS, not the executive.

If you are too busy reading the Constitution, you can take a look at the Senate website: “The House of Representatives Has Sole Power to Impeach” and [the] “The Senate has sole power to attempt any impeachment” https://t.co/1OU8yY1dMt https://t.co/FZBRyOAp3c

Let me sum it up. @ChuckGrassley threatens not to do his sworn job for believing criminals shouldn’t be prosecuted because @GOP redefined unity to mean that #GOP violations of the constitution are okay.

You know, #insurrection is just a locker room chat.
Let us continue. https://t.co/yIQrDy8xlt

I thought I understood the strength of party loyalty, but then I saw that some members of Congress couldn’t even draw the line when it came to inspiring a mob that wanted to kill me and / or my colleagues. https://t.co/aFQUXhhxEL

When they literally can’t stand democracy and control.

Imagine the OPPOSITION party is supposed to be autocratic. https://t.co/IWeYBUCJKj

I like presidents who don’t commit criminal acts.

Then I don’t have to accuse them.

It’s a simple process. https://t.co/5w4bMfh8H3

Unity is about the unity of purpose as a nation. Unit to eliminate the virus. Bring our kids back to school. Feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, heal the sick, employ the unemployed. It’s not about your accused leader. https://t.co/elZOxH8Rhq

To be very clear, you can’t go by the Constitution? No rules, no laws, no justice? Just wild wild west bull shit?
