Schumer: 'We Aren't Celebrating' ObamaCare Repeal Fail; Celebrates With Selfie
Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said on the Senate floor that his caucus should not celebrate the failure of the Republican ObamaCare repeal bill.
"I would suggest we turn the page," he said. "We are not celebrating."
But, a short time later, Schumer's communications director tweeted a photo of the Brighton Beach native taking a selfie with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.).
After the floor session, Matt House took a picture of Schumer standing with Warren.

Later, Warren was mobbed by raucous supporters outside the Capitol, despite the late hour
Steve Doocy said on "Fox & Friends" that Republicans "betrayed the confidence they had with voters" by defeating their own bill.
Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) cast the deciding vote, after it was correctly projected that centrist Sens. Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) would vote 'nay'.
Schumer said he is "relieved" that Americans can "keep their health care" and stressed that bipartisan committees meet to improve the current ObamaCare law.
