2016 Obama Said POTUS Must Nominate Person to SCOTUS After Scalia’s Death, Now Wants Trump to Wait

The following article, 2016 Obama Said POTUS Must Nominate Person to SCOTUS After Scalia’s Death, Now Wants Trump to Wait, was first published on Flag And Cross.

Barack Obama was a lame-duck president in early 2016, when Associate Justice Antonin Scalia passed away. He had less than a year left in the White House, so it was only right for the GOP-controlled Senate to block the confirmation of a new Justice until the next president was sworn in.

President Trump, on the other hand, is not a lame-duck in 2020. He could still serve a second term. Therefore, it makes sense for the GOP-controlled Senate to fill Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat before the election.

Like Barack once told us, elections has consequences. If you want to get your judges on the bench of the highest court in the land, your party first must hold the upper chamber.

He added, “Donald Trump hasn’t grown into the job because he can’t.”

Enter Trump…

obama meant the ‘elections have consequences’ only when he was president, not when Trump is. We real Americans want to see a conservative minded Supreme in place as soon as possible and that may end up saving America from the clutches of the communistic dems.
