"This is all a bit rich coming from Schumer. Let’s consider some history. Prior to his arrival in the Senate, senators were generally reluctant to openly oppose judicial nominees on ideological grounds, but Schumer worked to change that." https://www.nationalreview.com/bench-memos/senator-schumers-sour-grapes/ @jadler1969
"Schumer led an unsuccessful effort to filibuster confirmation of Justice Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court. Afterwards, in a 2007 speech to the American Constitution Society, he proclaimed he should have done even more to block Alito’s confirmation..."
"...and argued that Senate should not confirm any additional Bush nominees to the SCOTUS should any more vacancies arise. In his view, senators should seek to prevent judicial confirmations that might tilt the balance of the Court..something he would conveniently forget in 2016."
Its hilarious to watch liberals memory hole all of this (which preceded similar actions by GOP later on).

They never take any blame.
"During the closed session, Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) rebuked Schumer for his short memory: “I hope our colleague from New York is happy with what he has built. I hope he is happy with where his ingenuity has gotten the Senate.”"
