LAST WEEK TONIGHT

St. Valentine’s Day, the day of love and friendship was only a day ago.

The Pope’s USA visit was a while ago.

Where has all the “LOVE” gone?

While we all respect and offer condolences to the Scalia Family, some are making this a circus by claiming incredible erroneous facts and bending the laws of this country to their benefit.

America, this is what you have. It this what you want to keep?

Read on.

I takes a set of British eyes and a reasonable mind to see what some don’t see or, rather, don’t want to see.

Do buckle up …. what’s coming isn’t pretty.

John Oliver Slams Republicans for Attempting to Block Obama’s SCOTUS Choice

In his return to HBO’s ‘Last Week Tonight,’ the Brit took aim at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the Republican leadership for advocating against the president’s constitutional right.

In an unprecedented move, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell released the following statement just one hour after the sudden passing of divisive Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia:

“The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president.”

While there have been Senate objections to SCOTUS appointees in the past under similar circumstances, launching an instant, preemptive rejection of any candidate the president chooses is a first.

He then threw to a clip of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump endorsing Sen. McConnell’s historic stand during last night’s South Carolina debate, saying, “I think it’s up to Mitch McConnell and everybody else to stop it. It’s called delay, delay, delay.”

“Well, that does not bode well because Mitch McConnell is actually pretty good at delaying things for people – whether it’s legislation, court appointments, or orgasms,” joked Oliver. “Believe me, if you ever need to ‘delay, delay, delay’ [an orgasm], just picture [McConnell’s] face and I guarantee you nothing will happen possibly for the rest of your life.”

He then threw to a 2008 clip of Sen. McConnell addressing the Senate

“Our Democratic colleagues continually talk about the so-called Thurmond Rule, under which the Senate supposedly stops confirming judges in a presidential election year,” said McConnell.

“This seeming obsession with this rule that doesn’t exist is just an excuse for our colleagues to run out the clock on qualified nominees who are waiting to fill badly-needed vacancies.”

Oops. Sen. McConnell also stated in 2005 that he supported a sitting president’s absolute right to nominate judges, although that – again – was when a Republican sat in the White House.

“Yes, it seems the ‘Thurmond Rule’ is a bit like God: when things are going your way, you don’t bring it up a lot, but as soon as you’re in trouble it is all that you talk about,” quipped Oliver.

“As it appears in … full read/full credit”
