A little hole in her argument.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders on Wednesday accused Democrats of playing politics with Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court.

Sanders blasted Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and other Democrats for "throwing the kitchen sink" at Kavanaugh with "no regard for the process, decency, or standards," adding that Democrats have been:

"literally trying to undercut the voice of the American people who elected Donald Trump"

Yes, President Donald Trump was elected in 2016, but it was not because more people voted for him. The Electoral College decided the 2016 election, not the "voice of American people," which by a margin of nearly three million, chose Hillary Clinton.

Social media wasn't about to let Sanders forget that.

Watch the full segment below:

Sanders also went after Democrats who have questioned Kavanaugh's truthfulness over his drinking habits during high school and college, stemming from allegations that he sexually assaulted several women during his youth while intoxicated at house parties.

Democrats have thrown "11th-hour accusations" in a "smear campaign" against Kavanaugh with "no evidence," Sanders said." The FBI is currently investigating the aforementioned claims against Kavanaugh before the Senate begins confirmation proceedings on Friday.

"One thing is clear - Democrats want to block Kavanaugh and hold the seat open until the 2020 election," Sanders said. "This is about politics, this is about power, pure and simple."

Republicans don't actually need any Democratic votes to confirm Kavanaugh, but the scandal surrounding his youth is giving Republicans like Jeff Flake (AZ), Lisa Murkowski (AK), and Susan Collins (ME) pause.

This, however, pales in comparison to when Republicans let Justice Antonin Scalia's seat sit open for a year following his death in 2016 - because they didn't want to consider Barack Obama's replacement, Merrick Garland.

Even then, when Trump picked Neil Gorsuch to fill the seat, Democrats did not mount much of an opposition. Gorsuch was confirmed with some Democratic support.

Twitter reminded Sanders of this.

Many people also feel that Kavanaugh's temperament and partisanship during his hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week, following testimony by his accuser, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, is wholly disqualifying from a seat on the nation's highest court.

Thirty-four days to go.
