A bit of SCOTUS HISTORY — Repuglicans are such FIDIOTS … they have no substance! Truly disgusting!! Yet, no surprise, right?
Republicans are having racist conniption fits over President Joe Biden’s pledge to nominate a black woman to fill the vacancy left on the Supreme Court by Justice Stephen Breyer’s retirement. They’re trying to mask their opposition to Biden’s promise by claiming it’s about choosing the most qualified person to sit on the highest court in the land, no matter what their race or sex may be.
Before Ronald Reagan was elected in 1980, he promised during his campaign that if he got a nomination to the Supreme Court, his first would be a woman. When a vacancy did come up in his first year, he kept his promise and nominated Sandra Day O’Connor. Reagan got three justices on the court, but he made four nominations. The three that made it, O’Connor, Antonin Scalia, and Anthony Kennedy, each got over 97 votes. Trump’s three steals barely got 50 each.
