HACK says what?! CNN analyst Jeffrey Toobin claims framers didn't think SCOTUS justices would live past 50s

The stupid … it burns.

Keep in mind Jeffrey Toobin is a legal analyst.

Way to go, CNN.

From the Free Beacon:

CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin had a novel argument Tuesday for why Supreme Court nominations have become stiffer political battles in recent years.

“When the Constitution was written in the late 18th century, people were expected to die in their 50s,” Toobin said. “The Framers never contemplated that these terms would regularly go to 30-plus years as they do now.”

Life expectancy was significantly shorter in the 18th century, largely due to those who died when they were young. However, many adults lived well past their 50s, including all the presidents of the Founding generation. President George Washington lived to be 67, John Adams to be 90, Thomas Jefferson to be 83, James Madison to be 85, and James Monroe to be 73.

How hard would Washington laugh if he hadn’t dropped dead in his 50s? Oh, wait …

Wow, Adams lived to be 90! That’s amazing.

Almost as amazing as Toobin’s level of hackery, but we digress.

Well, that’s because net neutrality and tax cuts weren’t floating around back then killing people. Mark our words, if they faced Trump’s tax cuts they surely would have keeled over in their 50s or earlier.
