Schumer Can't Imagine A "Mainstream" Trump Supreme Court Nominee

posted on January 5, 2017

On Tuesday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said, “It’s hard for me to imagine a nominee that Donald Trump would choose that would get Republican support that we could support.”  

Schumer told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow that he is prepared to block any Trump nominee to the Supreme Court whom he does not consider “mainstream,” and that he would “absolutely” do his best to hold the seat open. 

Reminded by CNN that Democrats changed long-standing Senate rules to get Obama’s judicial nominees approved, Schumer expressed regret (“Wish it hadn’t happened”)—while warning that it would be “very hard” for Republicans to do the same thing for Supreme Court nominees.  

Declaring opposition to any Trump nominee while decrying possible rules changes just shows that, when the shoe is on the other foot, Schumer’s blatant hypocrisy sticks out.
