MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace asked Rep. Eric Swalwell (D., Calif.) on Wednesday if he and other Democrats were ready to "get mean and fight" in light of recent events concerning the Supreme Court.
Swalwell agreed he was willing to do just that following news Wednesday that Justice Anthony Kennedy will retire from the Supreme Court this summer and considering a stream of recent rulings from the Court that did not favor liberals.
"We've now heard almost word-for-word the same analysis from former Republican Steve Schmidt, from former Democratic Congresswoman Donna Edwards, from our own Rachel Maddow that it is time for you guys to get mean and fight," Wallace said. "Are you ready?"
"Yes, Nicolle," Swalwell said. "And we've seen this week that we cannot count on the Court to save us from the wrecking ball that is Donald Trump. And as far as what I can do as a congressman, electing a Democratic majority that can push that big red button to stop the wrecking ball, that's what we have to do."
