The nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court moved forward today after a 51-49 cloture vote. A final vote is expected in the Senate as early as Saturday afternoon. Meanwhile, a frustrated Sen. Chuck Schumer has the sads:
Schumer calls this "the ignominious end"of bipartisan cooperation on SCOTUS nominations. That sounds like a warning.

Mmm hmm, and who made “bipartisan cooperation” less necessary, Sen. Schumer?
He should call Harry Reid and thank him.

We don’t recall Schumer raising a big stink at the time Harry Reid used the nuclear option and Mitch McConnell was warning the Dems that they’d regret it:
Remember when Senator McConnell told Harry Reid that "You are going to regret this. Probably sooner than you think." Schumer will regret all this.

The Dems pretty much laughed at McConnell at the time. Now, not so much.
Thought that was when Harry Reid went nuclear.

Hey we're just some dumb rednecks out here in flyover country, but do you think y'all could explain how the nuclear option regarding filibuster became a reality in the United States Senate?
I heard Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer might have some inside knowledge as to why??

Remember Harry Reid.

Thanks to Sen. Schumer for helping point out who made all this possible!
