If you thought Democrats lost their minds over Justice Brett Kavanaugh, you ain’t seen nothing yet!
Yes folks, I’m talking this times 100:
Here was the announcement:
President Trump has been releasing his list of top choices and updating it as recently as last week.
That was timely!
And everyone expects he will waste no time making his nomination, perhaps as soon as next week:
Predictably, Democrats are in absolute meltdown mode.
Leading the pack is Chuck Schumer, pleading to not fill the vacancy "until we have a new President."
To which I ask, isn't 4 years a long time to wait Chuck? 😆😆😆
And now the most amazing news of all....
Trump is not waiting and neither is McConnell!
Remember, the Republicans control the Senate and it sure looks like we're gonna push this bad boy right on through!
Check it out:
Fox News had even more details:
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said unequivocally Friday night that President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee to fill the vacancy of late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg “will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate.”
Ginsburg, 87, died Friday from complications surrounding metastatic pancreas cancer.
“The Senate and the nation mourn the sudden passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the conclusion of her extraordinary American life,” McConnell said in a statement Friday.
“In the last midterm election before Justice Scalia’s death in 2016, Americans elected a Republican Senate majority because we pledged to check and balance the last days of a lame-duck president’s second term. We kept our promise,” McConnell continued. “Since the 1880s, no Senate has confirmed an opposite-party president’s Supreme Court nominee in a presidential election year.”
McConnell added that “by contrast, Americans reelected our majority in 2016 and expanded it in 2018 because we pledged to work with President Trump and support his agenda, particularly his outstanding appointments to the federal judiciary.”
“Once again, we will keep our promise,” he said. “President Trump’s nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate.”
In May 2019, McConnell, R-Ky., made clear that should a vacancy materialize in the midst of the 2020 election cycle, the GOP-majority Senate would likely “fill it.”
McConnell’s comments last year were met with criticism from Democrats who accused him of hypocrisy, based on the treatment of former President Barack Obamas Supreme Court nominee and D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals chief Judge Merrick Garland.
Obama nominated Garland to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia, who passed away in 2016, but McConnell and Senate Republicans refused to hold a hearing or vote on his nomination, citing the imminent 2016 presidential election.
Speaking to Fox News last year, McConnell suggested his stance was not hypocritical -- because in 2020, Republicans would control both the White House and the Senate, unlike Democrats in 2016, who controlled only the White House.

"You have to go back to 1880s to find the last time a Senate controlled by a party different from the president filled a vacancy on the Supreme Court that was created in the middle of a presidential election year," McConnell told Fox News.
Oh my, my head is spinning.
How about you?
You thought Kavanaugh was a fight?
Oh baby, you ain't seen nothing yet!
Get ready for World War 10000.
But I'd LOVE to get your thoughts please....
