Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, apologized on Monday after he used the word "retarded" in reference to developmentally disabled children during a podcast interview.

Schumer used the outdated term during a segment on Sunday's episode of the 1 NYCHA podcast regarding congressional efforts to combat homelessness. When a co-host mentioned that some initiatives for sheltering homeless people have faced resistance in New York City, Schumer brought up the Biden administration’s proposed "American Rescue Plan," as well as his own past experiences as a politician encountering opposition to housing proposals.

"When I first was an assemblyman, they wanted to build a congregate living place for retarded children," Schumer said. "The whole neighborhood was against it. These are homeless kids, they just needed some help. We got it done, it took a while."

If that same word would've came out of Donald Trump's mouth. The Lamestream media would have never let it go.  :tiptoe:
