WATCH: Obama Announces SCOTUS Nominee At 11:00am Today, GOP Raging Mad

Obama to announce SCOTUS nominee to today even though the GOP vowed to block any nominee.

In an email sent out Wednesday morning to supporters, President Obama confirmed that he will announce his nominee to fill a vacancy on the Supreme Court. The announcement will be made in the White House Rose Garden at 11 a.m.

Senate Republicans have publicly stated that they will not consider anyone the president nominates for the nation's highest court, purely because they dislike him and his policies and flat out refuse to do their jobs. They are still clinging to the hope that a Republican will get elected in November and hope he gets the chance to fill the vacancy with Scalia 2.0, a similarly hateful, racist, uber conservative justice.

FYI, GOP, Trump is your nominee. Do you really want to risk him picking the next SCOTUS Judge? Who would that be?

Back to Obama...as of late last week Obama had shortened the list of potential nominees to three federal appeals judges: Sri Srinivasan, Merrick Garland and Paul Watford. Two of the potential nominees, Srinivasan and Garland, sit on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, while Watford sits on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

Obama stated in the email:

"Today, I will announce the person whom I believe is eminently qualified to sit on the Supreme Court. As president, it is both my constitutional duty to nominate a justice and one of the most important decisions that I -- or any president -- will make."

Obama further said that he has:

"reached out to every member of the Senate, who each have a responsibility to do their job and take this nomination just as seriously."

Republicans, your move.
