Democrats are losing their minds over President Trump’s Supreme Court nomination.
The Resistance base of the party is thirsting for total war against Trump’s pick.
And you won’t believe what Nancy Pelosi just promised to do.
In an email to supporters Pelosi promised to “avenge” President Obama.
“Because I need you to understand how critical Trump’s Supreme Court announcement tonight is.
I just learned that SECONDS after Trump’s announcement… Republicans will launch an unprecedented $1.4 MILLION ad blitz to support his nominee.
I’m worried this will eviscerate our chance to make Republicans pay for the Supreme Court seat they STOLE from President Obama.
But I’m determined to avenge President Obama if it’s the last thing I do.”
Pelsoi was referring to the fact that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell observed the Biden rule and refused to hold a vote on Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland to succeed Antonin Scalia.
Democrats consider that seat “stolen” even though all the Republicans did was follow the precedent laid out by then Delaware Senator Joe Biden in 1992.
Then Senator Biden said Supreme Court nominations should not proceed in Presidential election years.
Obama had just months remaining in his term when Scalia unexpectedly passed away so McConnell observed the traditions set forth by Biden and held the seat vacant.
When Trump won the election, it allowed him to fill Scalia’s seat with Justice Neil Gorsuch.
Now the President can shift the court to the right for years.
