Conservative Leader Is Getting Dragged for His Tone Deaf Tweet Complaining About How Democrats Treat Republican Supreme Court Nominees
American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp is getting pounded on Twitter for suggesting that Republicans' Supreme Court nominees get treated unfairly by Democrats.
Schlapp tweeted on Sunday that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation hearings have "transformed into a disgrace" and that "when Dems win their SC noms get an easy time, but ours get mauled."
Senate Democrats are making public their planned votes for opposing or supporting Judge Neil Gorsuch's nomination to the Supreme Court. The Republicans hold 52 seats in the Senate, and they would need 60 votes to avoid a filibuster that could block the confirmation.
As of Monday morning, three Democrats have said they will support Gorsuch and 39 senators have said they will oppose his nomination. Of those 39, already 37 have said they will support a filibuster. That leaves the Republicans five votes short of stopping, and the Democrats four votes shy of invoking, the procedural block.
Today we will see if the other Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee took notes on Senator Al Franken's methods. Franken, unlike the other committee members, was able to pin down Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch.
During hearings yesterday, Gorsuch, like many Supreme Court nominees, evaded questions about his rulings and past rulings by the Supreme Court. When it was Franken's turn to question the nominee, the former comedian was aggressive in pushing for answers.
