Sad. But sadder the aftermath.
A wish for a peaceful, well-earned rest for a great, great lady. Thank you for all you have done for this undeserving country.
We now get to see if the Republican senators of 2016 are truthful and consistent about filling supreme court seats during an election year. My two bits says they will declare that 2020 is different.
Condolences to Family, Friends, and Country.
Trump should nominate Merrick Garland to the seat and redeem the CCNR (Christian Confederate Nazi Republicans).
John Cornyn (from his own website): “I believe the American people deserve to have a voice in the selection of the next Supreme Court Justice, and the best way to ensure that happens is to have the Senate consider a nomination made by the next President.”
Ted Cruz: “It has been 80 years since a Supreme Court vacancy was nominated and confirmed in an election year. There is a long tradition that you don’t do this in an election year.”
Marco Rubio: “The Senate is not moving forward on it until after the election. Senator McConnell, the majority leader, has already made that clear. And I agree with that. There’s been precedent established over 80 years that, in the last year, especially in the last 11 months, you do not have a lame-duck president make a lifetime appointment to the highest court on the land.”
Also Marco Rubio: “Number one, I don’t think we should be moving on a nominee in the last year of this president’s term—I would say that if it was a Republican president."
Lindsey Graham: “If an opening comes in the last year of President Trump’s term, and the primary process has started, we’ll wait to the next election.”
of course integrity in the gop is a fart in a hurricane.
Beautiful tribute — I mean really lovely ♥♥ Thank you Nick ♥
Hypocrite Republicans are like leopards tearing apart the corpse of law and demanding a replacement before the election.
Trumpy now says he’ll pick a woman to pander to the ladies which isn’t going to work. Now Teddy Cruz might vote against Trump as well as Tom Cotton who ‘has nothing to lose’. Lerst’s throw in Susan Collins, etc. Numerous others that their chances of being re-elected are very shaky for being Trump stooges. Will 2020 be remembered as the year “We The People” kept the House and took over the Senate? You decide now for those to follow generations after we’re all gone.
Beyond all their insincere words of praise, Republicans can’t roll her into the grave fast enough. I was going to write “back-kick,” but that wouldn’t have been nice.
McConnell will have a justice in place before the election. He will give the world the finger and laugh.
Nice Going Nick,, an Elegant and Respectful Memorial to RBG.
Truth and consistency are qualities of character. Republicans, right to lifers, Evangelical Christians have shown their lack of character ever since the Trump came down the escalator.
I do not know why the R senators go to work all they do is follow Bitch’s, oh I mean Mitch’s lead.
