|Bitch McConnell now wants to Democrats to get along and support the fuhrer.|
The fuhrer Donald J. Trump nominated Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court. Expect this to be a partisan fight. The conservatives are hoping for Trump to keep his word by nominating these type of justices to the Court.
Democrats who are seething from their loss are vowing to delay nominations and not hold hearings on candidates. They will take the route that Republicans done.
Progressives warn Democrats that they better get a spine or continue to lose elections.
When Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) and later Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) spoke in 2016 about the confirmation of a nominee, they said that they will wait until the results of the election when a new president is charge. They gambled their chances and it paid off.
A Republican president, a Republican congress, no problems rights! Uh, not so.
Democrats still can delay the nomination and oppose it. It takes up to 60 Senators to confirm the nominee. If the nominee fails to get a vote, McConnell could impose the "nuclear option".
The option could reduce the nomination confirmation to 51.
Barack Obama nominated Merrick Garland for the position and it ended with no confirmation nor a hearing. Republicans took the legal steps to deny Obama his third justice to the Supreme Court.
I am still amazed that McConnell has the audacity to get on this soapbox to warn Democrats to not clog up Washington. This asshole spent eight years doing so.
Antonin Scalia's death was partisan from the start. Republicans quickly went to social media and the junk food media to warn Obama not to pick a nominee. Obama was constitutionally in the right to pick a nominee. So when he did, the Republicans bemoaned about our country's courts are going to be fundamentally changed forever and it's the end of the world.
Now that Trump is entitled to getting a nomination, he will now face the wrath as well.
Trump is likely to get a nominee confirmed to the court.
The real test for the partisans is how far and how long could this go. Obama is still angered by Republicans and their unrepentant obstruction. Democrats are hoping to capitalize off the anger that Trump's two weeks in office brought upon the nation.
