Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer became emotional on Sunday when he criticized President Donald Trump's 90-day ban on immigration from seven majority-Muslim countries.
But the New York Democrat was singing a different tune in 2015 after a series of deadly terror attacks in Paris.
Schumer broke with most of his party, saying a pause in Syrian refugees might be called for, The Hill reported at the time.
"We're waiting for the briefing [with then-President Barack Obama] tomorrow, a pause may be necessary," Schumer said. "We're going to look at it."
On Sunday, Schumer choked back tears as he read a statement about Trump's executive order putting a 90-day stay on immigration from seven countries with terror ties.
"This executive order was mean-spirited and un-American," Schumer said.
Trump questioned the sincerity of Schumer's emotional display on Monday, calling them "fake tears" and adding, "I'm going to ask him who is his acting coach, because I know him very well. I don't see him as a crier."
