Every time a Republican president gets to nominate a Supreme Court judge, the left freaks out. The playbook is almost always the same, and Mitch McConnell pointed this out on the Senate floor yesterday. As he did so, you could plainly see he was having trouble containing his laughter.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
McConnell Mocks Left’s Rhetoric Against Trump Supreme Court Pick: ‘It’s Hard to Keep a Straight Face’
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) mocked left-wing “scare tactics” over the years against Republican Supreme Court nominees on Monday, saying “it’s hard to keep a straight face” with some of the recent rhetoric against President Donald Trump’s unnamed choice.
Trump has made his decision to fill the vacancy left by Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement, and he will announce it from the White House at 9 P.M. ET on Monday night.
Without naming him, McConnell noted Sen. Bob Casey (D., Pa.) had already declared he would oppose whatever judge Trump picked based on the list of his finalists. Trump also quoted Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.), who said on MSNBC that “we’re looking at the destruction of the Constitution of the United States” with Kennedy’s retirement.
McConnell chuckled as he read the quote on the Senate floor.
“It’s hard to keep a straight face when you hear stuff like that,” McConnell said. “There’s not even a nominee yet. Justice Kennedy just announced his retirement, and they’re talking about the destruction of the Constitution? Please, give the American people some credit.”
