When it comes to politics, maybe Bryan Cranston’s best course would be to tread lightly:
Re: Supreme Court Judge. Sen McConnell: "@POTUS believes 11 months is almost 1 year. I believe it is almost 0 years." Oh, Mitch. It's time
— Bryan Cranston (@BryanCranston) February 15, 2016
My last tweet was satirical. But Senator McConnell, citizens DO have a voice in selecting Justices. It's called a presidential election.

That’s all well and good, but see, we also have these things called senatorial elections. And senators are kind of in charge of approving the president’s SCOTUS nominations.
Saul may be shady, but even he could tell you that the Senate has to sign off on the president’s pick.
@BryanCranston actually, you meant to say "Senate elections"
— Jacob Perry (@jacobperry) February 16, 2016
@BryanCranston Incorrect. POTUS only nominates. Senate gives the final blessing.

Advise and consent. It's really not that difficult. https://t.co/myEHI5iE8a

@BryanCranston what about senate elections, do they count too?
— Lawrence Mussio (@Novamoose) February 16, 2016
So… Senate elections don't count? https://t.co/EkHfbZiGyA

@BryanCranston what about the more recent 2014 mid-terms? Don't they count.?
— Madlaw (@madlaw1071) February 16, 2016
@BryanCranston and also a midterm election in 2014
— Zachary Corrigan (@zcorrigan) February 16, 2016
@BryanCranston same applies to senate elections too, surely?

@BryanCranston and the senatorial election?
— Adam Shuknecht (@AdamShuknecht) February 16, 2016
@BryanCranston You're aware senators are also elected?
— syd (@SydneyCarton1) February 16, 2016
@BryanCranston Retake civics Bryan. There's this thing call Congress, within which is the Senate whose members are also elected.
— Saving Ferris (@StreetDoc_67) February 16, 2016
Yes…because voters don't choose Senators.
— Pradheep Shanker MD (@Neoavatara) February 16, 2016
@BryanCranston Citizens also have a voice in selecting Senators. Obama can nominate a justice, Senate can reject.

@BryanCranston There's also the other half of that equation–the consenting part–which is the Senate. Election in 2014, remember that?
— The Archon (@The_Archon) February 16, 2016
@BryanCranston Just wanted to point out that the Constitution gives senate the power of consent. They were elected too!

Cranston may be wrong here, but “Breaking Bad” was so awesome, we can forgive him.
