Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell promised a quick vote on a Supreme Court nominee by fall. Democrats appeared helpless to block it.

It means that Mr. McConnell, who led the blockade against President Barack Obama’s choice in 2016, in the last year of his presidency, will have the opportunity to usher two Republican-nominated justices on to the Supreme Court in the first two years of President Trump’s term.

The voters decided that Donald Trump would be president and get to nominate the next SCOTUS members...the Senate only gets to advise and consent.

Elections have consequences - thanks to the turd for that quote!

This sets a very poor precedent. When is McConnell going to retire? He is one of the biggest swamp creatures, liberal or "conservative."
