Hillary’s Hubby Calls McConnell, Trump ‘Hypocritical’ on RBG Replacement Process

The left is calling all of their attack dogs to the front for this fight.

The next few weeks are going to be an incredible whirlwind of vitriol and nonsense, with the 2020 election closing in and now a vacancy on the Supreme Court.

Top Republicans have indicated that they will move forward with the nomination process for the seat on the bench left open by the recent death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, despite the fact that they had such different opinions about the subject of late-term appointments just 4 years ago.  Their comments from the Obama-era attempt to appoint Merrick Garland during an election year have been brought back to the forefront of the political conversation and drawing criticisms from prominent Democrats.

From a recent interview between CNN’s Jake Tapper and former President Bill Clinton:

Anchor Jake Tapper said, “President Trump has vowed to nominate a woman this week to fill that slot on the Supreme Court. What’s your reaction?”

Clinton said, “Well, of course, it’s superficially hypocritical, isn’t it? Mitch McConnell wouldn’t give President Obama’s nominee Merrick Garland a hearing ten months before the president’s election. And that meant that we went a long time with eight judges on the court. This is what they do. I think both for Senator McConnell and President Trump. Their first value is power, and they’re trying to fill the court with as many ideological judges as they can. But to be fair, there is a case to be made for the argument McConnell made that in the middle of a presidential season, you should give the voters a say — that’s what he said when it was 10 months away. But when the shoe’s on the other foot, and he wants to judge, we’re fewer than 50 days away, and that argument doesn’t cut any mustard.”

He added, “So, it’s going to further spread cynicism in our system. And, you know, he said he wouldn’t do it.”

Clinton was responsible for appointing Ruth Bader Ginsburg to the Supreme Court in 1993, making her only the second woman to ever serve on the nation’s highest court.
