It didn’t take long for leftists to turn RBG’s death into a fiasco.
The celebrated justice had been gone for only a few hours before Democrats online started making demands of the president.
Some dared challenge him not to do his Constitutional duty in picking a replacement.
President Trump, refusing to back down, promised he would fill the vacancy “without delay.”
In a seemingly pathetic stab, Democrats said they would try to stop him with another impeachment vote.
Pelosi called it one of her “arrows.” Because, you know, the last impeachment worked so well.
President Trump gave them a cold warning if they dared to impeachment him again:
President Trump on Monday claimed he would win the presidential election if House Speaker Nancy Pelosi actually attempted to use impeachment as an option to block his eventual Supreme Court nominee from being confirmed to the seat vacated by the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg…
“I think we’ll win the entire election,” he said. “I think we’re going to win back the House, I think we’re going to win the House anyway.”
President Trump told Democrats, point blank, if they dared to impeach him over doing what he’s Constitutionally required to do, he’d “win the entire election.”
He said they’d not only win the White House and keep the Senate, but Republicans would “win back the House.”
Trump said he believed they were going to win the House anyway, but this would certainly seal the deal.
Sentiment against House Democrats only worsened after they went back on their pledge not to impeach Trump, to impeach him last year.
Many blame Democrats for wasting valuable time and resources to impeach the president over a phone call, only for the Senate to acquit him.
For Democrats to impeach him now, over nothing? That just might spell their doom.
Obama, apparently thinking his opinion matters to Trump, expected him to follow the 2016 precedent. This is how Trump replied to that chestnut:
Trump asked about Obama/Garland precedent:
“That’s called the consequences of losing an election. He lost the election he didn’t have the votes, when you lose elections some times things don’t turn out well.”
This is very different from 2016. Back then, Americans put Obama’s power in check by electing a majority Republican Senate.
They then elected Trump (and kept the Senate red in 2018) because they wanted Trump and the Senate to work together.
There is no reason they shouldn’t appoint a new justice, at least according to the country.
- Pelosi and House Democrats float the idea of impeaching Trump over SCOTUS pick.
- Trump threatened if they did, he and the GOP would win the election for sure.
- Trump said “elections have consequences” in response to Obama’s “precedent.”
