Dan Rather threw objectivity out the window — not that we suspected he was anything other than a liberal all these years — in an unhinged Facebook rant where he accused Mitch McConnell of orchestrating some sort of coup that prevented Obama from filling the SCOTUS vacancy and the election of Donald Trump:
He then excerpted a part of it for this tweet where he talks about the “will of the majority can still hold sway”:
Justice Kennedy retiring… If you are deeply disturbed, absorb the shock. But respond with even more determination. If you see this as a fight for the future of democracy, let those in power know that the will of the majority can still hold sway. https://t.co/lcKhiAgKao

OR…if you are an actual journalist, report on this objectively. https://t.co/vHtxJYU0z8

Next Rather will tie Kennedy’s retirement to Putin:
