You might have missed it, but Sen. Mitch McConnell wrote an op-ed Tuesday asking, “Will Democrats work with us, or simply put partisan politics ahead of the country.”
My latest Op-Ed: Will Dems work with us, or simply put partisan politics ahead of the country? https://t.co/X4IwYUedTE

The answer is B, put partisan politics first. But it’s not just his party that has Democrats steamed with McConnell — they’re still furious with him for not allowing Judge Merrick Garland his proper place on the Supreme Court seat stolen by Neil Gorsuch.

no wonder the nomination never moved forward — we can't have a supreme court justice with a middle name like that! https://t.co/kdGzxgGAfP

Poor Merrick…I knew him well.

May God rest his soul, I know Merrick's in a better place now.

He’s looking down on us and urging us to find a way to work together. #DoItForMerrick ❤️

Some people deal with losing a loved one differently than others. What Ian needs to know is he has our thoughts and prayers in his time of grief and need. https://t.co/VaAAflBCl1

So sorry for your loss, Ian.

Merrick, if he were with us today, would want Democrats to work in bi-partisan fashion with the Republicans.
— Robert Henriques (@RHenriquesUSA) November 13, 2018
He was sweet. He was kind. A good man. He will be missed. Only hope Special K can carry the fire in his stead

If he were still with us today, he'd want us all to come together and reach across the aisle to confirm more judges.
