Skip to comments.Bill Clinton: McConnell, Trump ‘Hypocritical’ — ‘Their First Value Is Power’(#CMTSU!)
Posted on 09/20/2020 11:26:31 AM PDT by rktman
Former President Bill Clinton said on Sundays broadcast of CNNs State of the Union that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and President Donald Trump were hypocritical for vowing to fill the vacancy following the passing of Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Anchor Jake Tapper said, President Trump has vowed to nominate a woman this week to fill that slot on the Supreme Court. Whats your reaction?
Clinton said, Well, of course, its superficially hypocritical, isnt it? Mitch McConnell wouldnt give President Obamas nominee Merrick Garland a hearing ten months before the presidents election. And that meant that we went a long time with eight judges on the court. This is what they do. I think both for Senator McConnell and President Trump. Their first value is power, and theyre trying to fill the court with as many ideological judges as they can. But to be fair, there is a case to be made for the argument McConnell made that in the middle of a presidential season, you should give the voters a say thats what he said when it was 10 months away. But when the shoes on the other foot, and he wants to judge, were fewer than 50 days away, and that argument doesnt cut any mustard.
He added, So, its going to further spread cynicism in our system. And, you know, he said he wouldnt do it.

Says the creepy guy still pulling Sunday morning talk show strings thirty years after his presidential run
People find this impeached disgraced woman abusing felon relevant
Is it hypocrisy to oppose one’s political enemies?
Stick a cigar in it Bill.
Tell that to Monica Lewinski, Bubba.
The whole point of politics is the accumulation and use of power. In this case, its the power to do good things.
Yeah, who would have ever made that connection that power and politics go along hand in hand.
Bill’s first value is sex.
Billy Fastballs Rapist Clinton & Hillaryous Rotten Criminal...better put some ice on that rapist.
In 2016 the voters chose Trump knowing full well that he would most likely have to chose a replacement for the aging decrepit Ginsburg. Trump is the president and one of his duties is to name a replacement. You can bet that if 0bama named a replace and the senate was controlled by the dems they would have approved the nominee even if it was on January 19 2017.
Coming from BJ Clinton, It sounds like a classic case of Leftist Projection.
You know if the DOJ would officially release a criminal case against what the democrats did to Trump then a lot of people would realize that if the democrats get to install a Justice then it would be another crook out to harm the country. The deep state ambitions of the democrat party need to be exposed in order to entirely change the perception. And just about Trump but Biden and the Ukraine, The Clinton Foundation, Soros, and a whole lot of other stuff. Let the world know that the democrat party is a criminal organization.
Is this from the babylon bee?
This guy, after his behavior should have been relegated to the dust bin of history. If we had an honest media, he would have been. Now we have to pretend he is some kind of elder statesman?
The guy who in his professional and personal ethics, is practically a poster child for “how you got Trump”, has thoughts on Trump’s and McConnell’s.
Dirty old sex fiend is more like it.
Advice & consent as it pertained to judicial nominations - including for the USSC - was one of the key issues in that election, as it was in 2016.
