More than a few Democrats made a very loud fuss about President Trump daring to fill the Supreme Court stolen from Merrick Garland. But while the New York Times was fueling the outrage with editorials like, “Neil Gorsuch, the Nominee for a Stolen Seat,” it turns out Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was snatching seats left and right.

@thedailybeast I love it. By "it" I mean the new conservative judiciary, although your unhinged childish reaction is pretty great, too.

“Think Merrick Garland was robbed a spot on the bench?” asks Jay Michaelson in the Daily Beast. No, not in the least, but do go on. “Fifty-nine other nominees were blocked by Mitch McConnell — and are starting to be filled now.”
Just imagine the impact of a decades-long transformation of the federal judiciary? Seems like a waste of time since it’s happening in real life.

Elections have consequences, and at the end of the day, Hillary lost.
@thedailybeast You lie a lot. Or did you never learn how our government system works?

@thedailybeast Take a civics course. You are completely ill-equipped to write about the US government proceedings.

@thedailybeast How odd. Democrats seemed to understand the consequences of elections while their messiah was jeering and ruling with a pen and phone.

Democrats? You did build that. All of the hinges seem to be missing, but the GOP can still work with what was left in place.
