The Senate Majority Leader has been coddled by Democrats for years. But now he’s being taken to task.

And Chuck Schumer’s jaw dropped after what this Republican just threatened to do.

House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) made an appearance on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” last Thursday, where he announced a plan that would have Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) enraged.

Johnson said that he is planning on inviting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to speak to Congress in a joint session.

“I would love to have him come in and address a joint session of Congress. I will certainly extend that invitation,” Johnson said.

“We’re just trying to work out schedules on all this.”

Johnson’s proposal comes at a time where Democrats, specifically Sen. Schumer, are growing frustrated with Netanyahu.

Recently, Schumer said that Netanyahu and and the people in his cabinet are an “obstacle” to peace and that Israel should hold elections to oust them.

“Of course, the United States cannot dictate the outcome of an election, nor should we try,” Schumer said two weeks ago while speaking on the Senate floor.

“That is for the Israeli public to decide.”

The House Speaker didn’t mince words when criticizing Schumer for those remarks.

“What Chuck Schumer did was almost staggering, just unbelievable. To suggest to our strongest ally in the Middle East, the only stable democracy, that he knows better how to run their democracy is just patently absurd,” Johnson said to CNBC.

A spokesperson for Schumer told the New York Post that the House Speaker and Senate Majority Leader have yet to discuss Netanyahu’s invitation to address Congress.

“Israel has no stronger ally than the United States and our relationship transcends any one president or any one Prime Minister,” Schumer said in a statement that the New York Post received.

“I always welcome the opportunity for the Prime Minister of Israel to speak to Congress in a bipartisan way.”

Schumer isn’t the only Democrat leader who has grown frustrated with Netanyahu.

After delivering his State of the Union address several weeks ago, President Joe Biden said on a hot mic that he and the Israeli Prime Minister need to have a “come to Jesus meeting.”

There are also a number of Democratic legislators, like Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) who are opposed to Israel and their efforts to fight back against Hamas after the terror group attacked the Jewish nation on October 7.

So imagine just how angry they would be if Benjamin Netanyahu made an appearance to speak to them in a joint session of Congress.
