It is messed up that Republicans blocked Obama from appointing a Supreme Court Justice in an Election year but the Republicans do it and its ok. As far as the Nobel Peace prize goes, that was absurd. Because one of the requirements to win that award is that you had to of "contributed to the decline of standing armies", and Trump has put a ton of money into the millitary and has worked on expanding it. Which should automatically make him ineligible for that particular award.

Fucking cringe at the slurping RBG re having a pocket constitution. When conservatives do that we ridicule them as cheesedicks with props...and maybe in both cases that's unfair. But it definitely can't be fair in one case and unfair in the other. That's...that thing that RBG was big on...whatchamacallit...*equality*.

Ted 'my real name is Raphael but I pander to old white racists' Cruz is the biggest hypocrite because not only is he two faced but he wrote a damn book whining about 'activist judges' but has been pushing to get conservatives to load the bench. To so tip power against the majority of the nation's leanings that they can flagrantly ignore the will of the people, overturn decades of precedence, and functionally destroy the middle class as they as a brazenly show deference to corporations and block social protections like health care protections and social security mandates. They want activist judges but only the people who will force everyone to live in their version of utopia, a gated community for all the rich evangelicals who are just waiting for white Jesus to whisk them away to their private heaven and the only colored folk they have to see in the mean time use the service entrance, go away come nightfall, and are so oppressed they don't have the strength to fight back.

As much as I hate Trump and everything he stands for, please do not stoop to their level and make fun of his stuttering. We are trying to defend Biden for his stuttering, yet mocking Trump for his? That's a double standard and we should be better than that.

During the debate Trump was predictably a mouthy, overbearing, unruly, undisciplined, spoiled baby who broke down and imploded when he couldn't get his own way. Talk about being a big spoiled baby! What a disgrace. He is a poor excuse for a president. I saw without any reservations all of the traits that make Trump an incompetent and incapable leader. When he is not given total control over everyone and everything, his insecurities get the best of him, and he literally breaks down and implodes. This showed the real Trump -- without the con and the glitz. Nobody - not even Fox news - can rescue him from himself. America deserves better than this. Hopefully we shake off this most unworthy character in November.

The sad thing is...not even Seth can make this funny anymore. Sure, the jokes are great but the fact is we’re powerless or unwilling to do what it takes to save this country. So enjoy these comedy shows before they’re taken off the air by a soon to be dictator. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Thank god, that woman hated the constitution and was what our forefathers fought to free us from, she didnt want us peasants to have guns YET she had armed guards, she thought if the government wanted your house they should be able to just take it with eminent domain. It was her MASSIVE ego which thankfully got her taking the room temp challenge while Trump was in office, if her brain was bigger than her ego the old bat would have stepped down under the radical left obama

You lefties are totally bankrupt of any morals or values. Seriously, if it wasn't for your double standards you wouldn't have any standards at all. It was YOU who pushed though a justice in 2016!! Now the shoe is on the other foot, you are whining about hypocrisy lmao...you seriously couldn't make this crap up. We know EXACTLY what the left would do in this situation because we watched them do it last time. So of course, we are going to push through one as quickly as possible - i could link you to hundreds of videos of democrats desperately wanting their judge to be nominated in 2016 - so what's changed? Seriously, grow up.

At this point I'm just gonna ask all the Republicans: WHAT THE HELL WERE YOU THINKING???

But to vote for a party with so many shameless hypocrites!!! What were you thinking???

You don't get hypocrisy....in 2016 athe nominee if appointed by Obama would have to get the majority of the Senate..the senate was a MAJOITY controlled sente and would not have voted Obamas pick in...Trump, by artical 2 SHALL ...SHALL nominate a canidate the the Sentate would vote on and they are still a MAJORITY republican senate, which means his pick will most likely get all the votes.. The Democrate screwed themselves by passing a law eliminating a fillibuster nuclear option as they feared the republicans would use it against their nominations..LESSON: BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR.....Some Republican nominated justices were very liberal because they didnt chose party, they chose to follow the constitution....Just look at Kennedy's voting record. Joe Biden said our government has failed us..yes joe, you have failed us for the past 50 years...why did you not accomplish what you say you are going to...you and obama had 8 years.....Hunter Biden...3.5 million dollars paid to him by china....Obama increased his net worth 30 fold during his presidency... Donald trump has lost half of his fortune during his presidency ! Trump 2020
BOB WADAS 23 days ago
@niduoe stre Please give me a source to back you claim that this is corruption. The constitution shays, "The President SHALL nominate , ( not may nominate but SHALL NOMINATE) a canidate when a vacancy in the supreme court. The nomination goes to the senate, as written in our constitution, and the take a vote. So if states would have elected more Democrates to the senate, then the nominee would probably not get nominated. In 2016 Obama nominated a vacancy in the supreme court as he is required by the constution requires, but there were not enough Senators to confirm him. Had the people voted more Democrats into the Senate. I am sorry, but I believe in America and the supreme court and when they put on the robe, they are commited to following the constitution and put aside political and personal beliefs. If you follow history, you will find that most decisions are not split between party lines. You can look back at kennedy and his support for Obamacare. No Justice wants to be remembered as a political pawn for a party. RGB voted many times and agreed with republican nominees in her decision making. The senate stays in session till jan 20th. Obama nominated a justice in the last months of office and now Trump is..The problem Democrats overlook is the people voted in a majority of republicans. Personally, I believe that ginsburg should have retired for health reasons if she wanted to make sure a democrate replaced her and take the well deserved retirement and have just emersed herself in her families love. Family before work. Again, no corruption, 100% following the constitution. You will see the real corruption soon with hunter biden and the falsifying of the dossier ! Have faith in the system and believe the justices truly do what the constitution says.. I have faith in the democrat appoined judges alon with the republican nominees.... America works when we have faith and stand behind the whole country. I miss the closeness of all the parties when 9/11 happened...A proud moment that I wish would return. I never vote across party lines. I vote for everyone after I see what their voting record is, could care less about party ! Have a little faith. Stand next to me as an Amican and stand up when rules are not followed and trust everything will be OKAY ! We are Americans and thats all that matters. I watch no political news program. I just llok up who is running and what their past voting was.Americans have to stop being angry at each other..its ok to disagree and they is no reason not to get along with someone. Democrats say America has never been great..wait..Democrats dont think obama did anything to make America great? I pray every president takes action that improves Anerica.. I had not problem doing his job if he believedhe was trying to do the best he could... I dont like lies.. I didn't like Biden calling Trump a racist because "he banned the china restriction to soon...now he says the president did move quick enough to ban...If he would have stuck with his original statement, I may not agree, but I respect a man how stands behind what he said..America has the lowes covid deaths than any other country at3% and has administered test million more times than any country ! I state my point of view but I have no problem that you have a different opinion,,thats what makes us great.
