The Democrats are desperately trying to stop Trump from appointing a new Supreme Court justice.
But they’re reaching for straws at this point.
Chuck Schumer saw a message from voters that filled him with fear.
The Democrats have used the Supreme Court in order to expand the federal government’s power for decades.
Now they are so worried about having a check to their insane Marxist plans that they are threatening to burn the system down.
The recent death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has sent Democrats into a frenzy.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said that impeaching Trump was among her options to stop Trump’s Supreme Court nomination from being confirmed.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said that if Republicans replace Ginsburg, it would “spell the end” of the Senate.
Other Democrats have mentioned court-packing as an option now.
The Democrats don’t seem to realize that they don’t have all the power in the universe.
Voters chose for Trump to be President and for the Senate to have a Republican majority and that’s the reason that Trump is moving forward with the nomination.
Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) made the case on Sunday that Republicans are fulfilling their obligation to the voters who placed them in office.
“In 2014, the American people elected a Republican majority to the Senate to put the brakes on President Obama’s judicial nominations,” Cotton said during an interview on Fox News. “In 2018, we had a referendum on this question, just a month before the 2018 midterms. We had the vote on Justice Kavanaugh. There could not have been a clearer mandate because the American people didn’t just re-elect Republicans, they expanded our majority. They defeated four Democratic senators who voted against Justice Kavanaugh. They re-elected the one Democratic senator who did vote for Justice Kavanaugh.”
“So we have a clear mandate to perform our constitutional duty. That’s what the Senate majority will do now. That’s what we did back in 2016 as well,” Cotton continued. “The Senate majority is performing our constitutional duty and fulfilling the mandate that the voters gave us in 2016 and especially in 2018.”
The Democrats are trying to pretend that there is something morally wrong with President Trump and the Senate fulfilling their constitutional duty.
The Democrats accuse the Republicans of being morally corrupt every time they don’t give in to their insanity.
The Republicans are playing by the rules and there is nothing underhanded about what they are trying to do, it is how politics has always worked.
The new element is Democrats threatening to make fundamental changes to America’s government in order to try and keep the opposing political party from ever gaining any victories.
