Joe Biden shocked Obama, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi along with other outraged liberals when he told PBS the democrats must consider Trump’s SCOTUS picks.
“I think they should, look the Constitution says the president shall nominate — not maybe could, maybe can — he shall nominate,” the vice president stated. “Implicit in the Constitution is that the Senate will act on its constitutional responsibility and give its advice and consent.”
“No one is required to vote for the nominee, but they, in my view, are required to give the nominee a hearing and a vote.”
“It’s been my policy since I was in the United States Senate, and I’ve presided over more Supreme Court nominees than anyone in history, anyone living.”
“Never once — even the ones I disagreed with — were they denied a hearing.”
But that is just what Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama have promised to do. Maybe this tongue lashing but “Uncle Joe” will straighten them out before they do even more damage to the democratic party.
