FACT CHECK: Stephen Colbert, Chuck Schumer, etc. are lying about the 'McConnell rule' and here's the transcript to PROVE IT

In a clip titled “Mitch McConnell’s Supreme About Face” from last night’s “Late Show,” host Stephen Colbert criticized the Majority Leader for allegedly flip-flopping on how the Senate should handle SCOTUS nominees in an election year. He’s bitching that McConnell refused to allow a vote on Merrick Garland in 2016 while saying yesterday that the Senate will hopefully hold a vote on whomever Trump nominates for the now-vacant Kennedy seat before the midterms:

We’re seeing a lot of this revisionist history from the libs. Basically, they’re forgetting that McConnell specifically said that his move in 2016 was because it was a presidential election year, not just a election year. It’s crystal clear, as this transcript shows:

And here’s Sen. Chuck Schumer saying the same thing as Colbert:

Plus, what Schumer, Colbert, and everyone else are leaving out is that the GOP did allow a vote for Elena Kagan before the 2010 midterms. The Republicans went on to gain 6 seats in the Senate so there would have been every reason to try to hold up the nomination, but they didn’t do it:

Sen. Mitch McConnell is making this clear as well, for any lib who will listen:

But nah. The libs have their narrative and they will run with it.
