Democrat nominee Joe Biden joined in on the left’s hysterical meltdown over the prospect of Donald Trump filling Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s now-vacant Supreme Court seat at a campaign event on Sunday.
Biden just announced during a rambling campaign speech in Philadelphia on Sunday that if he wins in November, Trump’s forthcoming SCOTUS nomination should be withdrawn.
“To jam this nomination through the Senate is just an exercise in raw political power,” Biden complained, “and I don’t believe the people of this nation will stand for it.”
He implored the Senate to “not act until after the American people select their next president, their next Congress, their next Senate.” Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has made it clear he has no intention of doing any such thing.
If Donald Trump wins the election — then the Senate should move on his selection — and weigh that nominee fairly. But if I win the election, President Trump’s nomination should be withdrawn.
As the new President, I should be the one who nominates Justice Ginsburg’s successor, a nominee who should get a fair hearing in the Senate before a confirmation vote.
After spending a large portion of his speech trashing Donald Trump and vaguely threatening “action and reaction, anger and more anger” if Senate Republicans move forward with confirming a new justice, Biden concluded that the nation “needs to come together.”
Biden again refused to reveal the names of those he is considering naming to the high court, despite his promises that his choice will represent the will of the people.
Despite Biden’s lengthy supplication for Trump to delay choosing a replacement, Trump has made it clear that he will push on, despite threats of violence and whining about precedent.
