Mitch Connell clearly stated that a president shouldn't appoint a Supreme Court justice during an election year. Those were his exact words. It doesn't matter who has the majority or not. He said that, yet when RBG died, he during an election year confirmed Trump pick. We're not going on who had a majority or not. We're going that one statement "A president shouldn't pick a Supreme Court Judge during an election year." it's like me saying it's wrong to still a car to you, but when I do it's ok. Either it's wrong or it isn't
The President is elected for 4 years, not 3 and a few months. Even IF Trump is not re-elected, he still can sign laws and issue Executive Orders right up to Jan 20th - like it or not. Remember, Obama was spying on the Trump campaign in '16, right into January '17 during the transition.In '16, Obama nominated but the Senate declined to offer their advice & consent for the nominee. There's nothing wrong with that, nor against the US Constitution. The same applies now, in '20. Regardless how close to an election this appointment is made, it's still legal and well within Constitutional bounds.Now... flip the script and put Democrats in the same situation as Republicans were/are and you cannot tell me they would have done differently. If you do, you're full of shit. Democrats would have done EXACTLY the same thing as the Republicans have done. Democrats cannot handle the situation when it goes against their plans. They literally behave like 4yr olds having a temper tantrum. So go ahead and whine, complain, bitch, and moan about the situation. One person on the SCOTUS cannot out vote the other 8, so your complaints that she alone can destroy healthcare or remove abortion are also full of shit too.It's about time that court was shifted in a more conservative direction. We've put up with liberal bullshit for the past 40+ years!
The Senate decline because Mitch McConnell said that a president shouldn't pick a replacement during an election year. So how is it that those words were true for Obama but not true for Trump. Seocnd I didn't ask you was it against the US constitution.Third just because the democrats would have done the same thing doesn't make it any less hypocritical. But since the democrats aren't in power we're talking about Mitch McConnell.The mère fact that you went on a tirade about the democrats tells me a lot about you.
Look I personally don’t even like Mitch mconnell... but him and anything he says is irrelevant. The constitution is what matters here. Who gives a crap what one senator has to say. It is the presidents job to nominate someone and it is the job of the senate to either confirm them or not confirm them. By law it is there choice. Not Personally I believe that they should have held the confirmation hearings for merick Garland and then voted accordingly. “But the end result would have been the same”!!!
