While U.S. Sen. John Barrasso has been making the rounds on television discussing the Supreme Court vacancy, he’s also been discussing the upcoming election and how perilous it could be for the country if the Democrats take control of the Senate and the White House.

The Wyoming Republican told FOX News host Shannon Bream that the far left wing of the Democratic party is actually in control of the party and submitted as evidence the fact that Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer actually allowed someone else to appear on camera with him.

“Anyone who has followed Chuck Schumer for a long time knows he doesn’t like to share the camera or the microphone with anyone,” Barrasso said.

And this anyone isn’t just anyone. Schumer’s press conference pal was Democrat U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC).

“She is the de facto speaker of the House because Nancy Pelosi is terrified of her and Chuck Schumer is worried about a primary from her in two years in New York,” Barrasso said.

“She is running the Democratic Party and she wants to run it further and further to the left and that’s a big problem for the country, Shannon,” he said.

Barrasso said the Democrats have a plan in place to expand the number of seats on the Supreme Court and expand the number of members in the U.S. Senate (presumably Democrats) by allowing the District of Columbia to become a state.

“That’s what’s at stake in the election,” Barrasso said. “The Democrats have a full-time war room and they’ve been campaigning on this promise for some time.”
