Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer has called homeless children ‘retarded’.
The Senate Majority Leader made the remark on Sunday during an interview after he was probed on community housing.
He said: “I wanted to build when I first was an Assemblyman, they wanted to build a congregate living place for retarded children.
“The whole neighborhood was against it, these are homeless kids. They just needed some help.”
New York lawmaker Schumer had earlier spoken about funding for “mental health services” and “real mental health counseling.”
