Senate Dems Refuse Meetings w/ ‘Illegitimate’ SCOTUS Nominee Barrett

'Why would you meet with somebody if you already know where they’re going to be on every case?'

Several unhinged Senate Democrats said they will not meet with Amy Coney Barrett, whom President Donald Trump nominated for the Supreme Court.

“This is an illegitimate nomination,” said Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., according to Politico. “I personally have no desire to pretend it’s acceptable.”

They do not want to acknowledge Barrett, who may believe that the Supreme Court should stop unconstitutional law-making and overturn Roe v. Wade.

With the aid of the corporate media, Democrats still draw inaccurate comparisons between Barrett and Merrick Garland, the Obama nominee whom Senate Republicans refused to bring to a vote in 2016 after the death of Justice Antonin Scalia.

In that situation, the Democrats did not control both the presidency and the Senate, so Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said the will of the people was not certain.

But in the 2018 midterm—shortly after Democrats’ failed attempt to block the confirmation of Trump’s second pick, Justice Brett Kavanaugh, by using unsubstantiated rape smears—the GOP added more seats to its Senate majority, reflecting the will of voters after the controversial confirmation process.

Despite the clear mandate, Democrats continued to have sour grapes over what they perceived to be the loss of a “liberal” court seat to upset the tenuous idealogical balance of the court.

Sen. Bob Casey, D-Pa., said “no,” he will not speak with the nominee because he already knows that she will oppose his left-wing agenda.

“Why would you meet with somebody if you already know where they’re going to be on every case?” Casey asked.

Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, who has attacked judicial nominees in the past for their Christian beliefs, said she does not need to talk to the nominee in private.

“Whatever she has to say to me, she should say it under oath,” she said.

On the other hand Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., said he would “love to meet with a nominee.”

He voted to confirm both Justice Neil Gorsuch and Kavanaugh, casting the only Democratic vote in favor of the latter after receiving assurances that he would not be the deciding vote.

Manchin said, however, that he does not support a confirmation vote prior to the Nov. 3 elections.

White House spokesperson Judd Deere criticized the Democrats for their unwillingness to talk.

“The president has not even put forward a nominee yet,” he said last week, prior to Trump’s Saturday announcement. “This is pure politics from Senate Democrats and shows they do not take their constitutional duty to advise and consent seriously.”
