Perfect Example of Why Over Half Nation Hates GOP/Trump/Right Wing

This is not normal: Grassley steamrolls home state senators to force racist, anti-LGBT judicial pick

When it comes to the courts, Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Chuck Grassley (R-IA) fights dirty. During the Obama administration, Republicans withheld their “blue slips,” the slips each home state Senator uses to express approval of a nominee, to block judicial nominations. After D.C. Circuit Judge Merrick Garland’s nomination to the Supreme Court, Grassley and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) wouldn’t even give him a confirmation hearing.

Under the Trump administration, Grassley’s reversed course. He torched the blue slip process in January and steamrolled Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) over serious objections to a particularly unqualified judicial nominee in February. Now, he’s taken it one step further: Despite both Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) and Sen. Jeff Merkeley (D-OR) refusing to return blue slips, the GOP forged ahead, forcing a confirmation hearing.

sleazy sleazy sleazy

and the right wing acts all surprised why over half our nation loathes the GOP / Trump / and most of the Right Wing

So sad about the poor white man! And God forbid we should have something OTHER THAN WHITE MEN on the bench.
Quote:
Bounds also bemoaned the plight of the white male—he was ahead of his time, really, but used language from another century—in decrying social justice proponents as believing their “opponent is the white male and his coterie of meanspirited lackeys: ‘oreos,’ ‘twinkies,’ ‘coconuts,’ and the like.”

Trump, McConnell, and Grassley want to fill the judiciary with white men just like Bounds. Or worse. They’re well on their way, and bragging about it. Reminder: Federal judges have lifetime appointments. Their rulings live on even longer.
Our Trumpets here on DTT must be thrilled.

Yeah Clara, it's not about the content of his/her character or qualifications, it's all about "skin color". Thanks for making your position clear.
Thanks from TNVolunteer73 and Sabcat
