Stabenow Called Out on Hypocrisy of Filibustering Gorsuch

MSNBC's Chuck Todd called out Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D., Mich.) for Senate Democrats' hypocrisy in filibustering Judge Neil Gorsuch's Supreme Court nomination.

Stabenow has said she will not vote for Gorsuch's nomination or for cloture, which would allow for a full vote in the Senate. Stabenow also insisted that Gorsuch get at least 60 votes to be confirmed.

Todd said he couldn't understand Stabenow's refusal to allow a vote for cloture. Stabenow pointed to Senate Republicans not considering Judge Merrick Garland's nomination to the bench, leading Todd to ask if that justified the actions of Senate Democrats.

"What I'm saying is, do two wrongs make a right here? Or three wrongs? Or four wrongs? Or five wrongs?" Todd asked.

"It's not about wrong or right," Stabenow said. "Chuck, it's not about wrong or right."

Is Todd having a change of heart by confronting a Liberal. He definitely proved the hypocrisy and the bully tactics of the DumbocRATs if it benefits them and against it when it applies to Republicans.

No it's not about right or wrong. It about me getting MY way.

"...IT'S NOT ABOUT RIGHT OR WRONG." I can't believe he would openly say that, but......

That's all you need to know about every single lying thieving, pedophilic, manipulating, back room dealing, bribe taking, payoff arranging, self-important and self-promoting, cheating, alcoholic, double standard loser that makes a "career" out of what THEY call "public service".
What IS it about, then???

M-O-N-E-Y. You and me??? We are somewhere around 11 or 12 on that list.
If you haven't contributed to their next campaign, you probably aren't even ON the list.
Keep cheering.
