GOP’s stunning hypocrisy on Supreme Court seat – dangers of minority rule in Lincoln Project ad
GOP Senator, Thy name is Hypocrite
Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell and his troupe of GOP followers have publicly acknowledged that they all intent to confirm anyone President Trump nominates to the Supreme Court. The hypocrisy is frightening. Rewind to 2016, Republicans argued they would not fill Justice Antonin Scalia’s seat (which occurred the February of an election year). They refused to hold a confirmation process for Merrick Garland who was nominated by former President Barak Obama back in 2016.
On September 18, 2020, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away and her dying wish, a concern on her mind up until the end, was for her seat not to be filled until a new president and congress were seating in January 2021. They won’t wait until private services are held which are planed next week at Arlington National Cemetery, but will wait until after Friday, where Justice Ginsburg will lie in repose in State in the Capitol.
The majority of the GOP have since all changed their tune and plan to fill the seat before the election, with Trump planning to announce his nominee on Saturday, September 26, 2020.
In the Lincoln Project ad, the video rounds up comments previously made by the likes of Mitch McConnell, Ted Cruz, Lindsey Graham, Thom Tillis, and more. In it they speak staunchly against filling a vacancy on the Supreme Court during an election year, this is obviously the exact opposite of what they are now crying out in the present.
The ad ends with, the once, very outspoken opponent of Trump, who had called him a “kook” – saying:
“If there’s a Republican president in 2016 and a vacancy occurs in the last year of the first term, you can say Lindsey Graham said, ‘Let’s let the next president, whoever it might be, make that nomination.'”Lindsey Graham
Those were Lindsey Graham’s EXACT words and even stood firm on his stance, saying “I want you to use my words against me”.
