McConnell Refuses To Say He Will Block Trump's Nominees As Term Ends -- Like He Did To Merrick Garland
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) refused on Sunday to say that he would block Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominees in the final year of his term as was done to President Barack Obama's nominee, Merrick Garland.
Jake Macoby, a speechwriter for AG Eric Holder told the Fox News panel that Democrats waited a year for the Merrick Garland nomination to be brought forward, but it was thwarted. Conservatives claim revenge!
Melber uses numerous clips from GOP Senators to show how they live by one set of rules while expecting the Democrats to play by a different set.
Amy Klobuchar goes there. This ramming through of Kavanaugh is a long-range conservative strategy. MERRICK. GARLAND.
Senator Mitch McConnell seems to have forgotten how he treated Merrick Garland.
Mitch McConnell in August 2016 bragging about preventing Pres Obama from filling Justice Scalia's open seat: "One of my proudest moments was when I looked at Barack Obama in the eye and I said, ‘Mr. President, you will not fill this Supreme Court vacancy!"
Hewitt upset that Kavanaugh is being put "on ice" but doesn't want anyone to mention Merrick Garland.
As right-wingers ramp up the rhetoric and the hyperbole, three words echo through the universe: Merrick Effing Garland.
"But that doesn't mean they should be rude to Brett Kavanaugh!" Gee, thanks Tucker, too bad your entire career is a cesspool of servitude to the people who carried out that injustice.
Mitch McConnell can live another three decades and we'll still remember what a thief he was with Merrick Garland's SCOTUS seat.
