Bitter Democrats still jealous and totally pissed off about the U.S. Senate's snubbing of an Obama Supreme Court nominee in 2016.

They are issuing "warnings" to Republicans to NOT confirm a 3rd Trump nominee (should a seat become available in 2020)!!

Oh are these Democrats snarling and drooling LOL.

They're so numbed, they are threatening to expand the Court and add more justices when they (Democrats) get the power again (if again).

If that ever happens it would take generations to get balance back in the Supreme Court !!

I think the power monger Democrats will do this anyway if they ever get power back regardless of what Trump does !!

Horrible Jealousy as mental case Democrats talk and threaten !!



Democrats are warning Republicans not to fill a possible Supreme Court vacancy this year after denying President Barack Obama the chance in 2016, saying it would embolden a push on the left to add seats to the court whenever they regain power.

"We knew basically they were lying in 2016, when they said, 'Oh, we can't do this because it's an election year.' We knew they didn't want to do it because it was President Obama," Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., said in an interview.

Kaine, the party's last vice presidential nominee and a lawmaker with a reputation as an institutionalist, said confirming a nominee of President Donald Trump this year could compel Democrats to consider adding seats to the high court.

"If they show that they're unwilling to respect precedent, rules and history, then they can't feign surprise when others talk about using a statutory option that we have that's fully constitutional in our availability," he said. "I don't want to do that. But if they act in such a way, they may push it to an inevitability. So they need to be careful about that."

Eh, so don't.
Wait until the election is over and half the sitting democrats die from strokes, THEN replace them.

It's just nonsensical rhetoric.

It is a fairly well established precedent that appointments will not be confirmed during an election year.

Yep and it was a precedent that political outsiders don't get elected president. AKA Ross Perot. Trump will do what Trump wants to do to hell with precedent. Is there a law to keep him from doing so?

As opposed too?

Democrats have done nothing but retaliate since Trump's election, to the great detriment of the nation.

The deep state has dirt on Roberts and his shady adoption of his two sons. IMHO

Ruth Ginsburg did not tell the world for four months that she was being treated again for recurrence of cancer. She decided to reveal this now because it is getting pretty bad.

Democrats understand what has happened and are shifting into a higher mode of panic.

At this point, I just have to ask, what will they do, lie using the IC and spend years on an illegal investigation and try to force him out with a failed impeachment?

What else haven't you tried democrats?

On January 4, 1940, President Franklin Roosevelt (a Democrat) nominated Frank Murphy to replace Pierce Butler, who died on November 16, 1939; Murphy was confirmed by a heavily Democratic Senate on January 16, 1940, by a voice vote.

So the democrats have no room to complain. Their paragon of virtue did it.

What are they gonna do? Put another 50 million Americans out of work by having all their governors lock down everyones job again? The left are a joke and after all the rioting, looting and violent protests, most of their own people don't even like Democrats. I've seen some friends completely ditch the left.

I think the Democrats screwed up big time and know it, which is why we don't even have a presidential campaign for Biden. Might as well save the money or what little of it is coming in from actual supporters.

And I would look those Dems straight in the eyes and say GFY. Who is any party to say a justice can't be installed during an election year? If the need is there, fill it. They're "supposed to be non-partisan" anyway, right? Right. The whole f'g world is upside down and they're worried about replacing RBG before November.

Burn it down. All of it. Start over.

I would place my attourney and good friend Joseph Mama on the Supreme Court so when any evil insane Marxist leftist douche-waffle asked who it was I was placing, I could honestly say, "Joe Mama".

That's my point. Both sides do it, both sides are wrong.
