Sad news. I didn’t agree with her interpretation of the constitution but she was a very bright intellect. RIP

He is throwing down the gauntlet

She will be missed. Hopefully Biden will nominate an actual jurist instead of a frat boy.

I have plenty of problems with Kavanaugh, but sometimes frat boys do grow up.

My objection to him being on the Court is that he clearly and obviously lied under oath to the Judiciary Committee.

Mitch McConnell: I will fill Ginsburg's seat with Trump's nominee. Chuck Schumer: Don't dare.

She has barely passed.......and this power hog bozo is behaving like an uncouth, despicable persona that he is. Talk abut bad taste......but typically cut throat trumpian.

I'm not shocked by McConnell what so ever.

Female friends are already expressing fears because of her death of what will happen not just to them but to their daughters and sisters.

Considering the nominees Trump has given just recently (did he know or was it a HUGE coincidence?), women's rights in the US under Trump no longer exist.

In 2015 McConnell clearly said that a president in the last year of his term should not nominate judges and he refused to hear the one presented.There is only one word for him if he hears Trump's nomination prior to the election (or after if Trump loses).

Word is that this situation has given energy to t the MAGA hatters who have been a bit deflated due to Trumps' poor performance e re: Pandemic.

Poked around a little.

The rule is that there will be no confirmations in an election year when different parties control the Senate and the White House.

That’s it. No other "rules".

Republicans control both and are entitled to make the pick whenever a seat comes open.

It's still going to be hell if McConnell does put a nominee through, or tries to. Considering the excuse he gave Obama and the less time before the election there is... he may not even get the 51 needed to pass, if a judge is even confirmed that soon to go to the Senate.

RBG dictated a note to her granddaughter before she passed away. It said....

"My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed."

Yeah, how many grandchildren were not born because of her.

Trump needs to replace her fast..

How many grandkids were not born because their mothers made a choice that has nothing to do with anyone but them and them alone?

Nor has it anything to do with you Boom.

Wanna choice in whether to abort a child? Be a woman. Otherwise, STFU.

There are no rules in politics, ask BHO.

Why? Shouldn’t all citizens have the right to vote?

Exactly.


Which is why McConnell doesn't get to say who's on the SCOTUS until after the election when the people vote for who gets to replace RBG.

You cant abort a child and besides, Be careful in claiming something decriminalized to an exclusive Right which it isnt or it WILL backfire.

Well the outcome of whether or not to replace her really falls on Ginsberg’s shoulders . She could have retired with dignity and praise during the Obama Presidency , she was already in poor health , unfortunately she expected Hillary was a lock . Look what that got her .

I know Mitch in 2016 was saying just election year. And to be honest, the non appointing is not just a Republican thing. The Democrats have done it to Republican presidents many times too. I think it is not really a rule but just politiking. But they can't say that of course.
