AZ U.S. Senators hypocritically praise Pres. Trump’s SCOTUS pick, though if they got their way during election, we’d be faced with a permanently leftist skewed high court
Who can forget sanctimonious hypocrite John McCain taking to his high horse and withdrawing his brief support from Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump? McCain, who previously referred to Hillary as “a rock star” he could support, also declared he and his wife Cindy would not vote for Trump. Vacuous daughter Meghan followed suit.
Jeff Flake, Obama’s basketball teammate and traveling companion, not only refused to get on board with our nominee, but rogue Flake went before any MSM camera placed in front of him to undermine Donald Trump, declaring, “I don’t expect that I will be able to support him (Trump) in November….I just don’t see how I can.”
Now the duplicitous duo of amnesty supporters is heaping praise on President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee 10th Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Neil Gorsuch.
If it had been up to either of these Hillary cohorts, we’d be looking at liberal nominees in the mode of former ACLU chief counsel, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, admittedly no fan of the U.S. Constitution, appointed by Bill Clinton, as was Stephen Breyer.
Leftists Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, a White House policy adviser to Bill Clinton and later Obama’s Solicitor General — were both Obama appointees.
As McCain and Flake enthuse over Judge Neil Gorsuch, remember what we would have had if either of these Republican pretenders got their way and Donald Trump, who they sabotaged every step of the way, had not been elected President.
The disgraceful Arizona senators deserve the award of shame for their blatant hypocrisy.
Here are a few of the U.S. Supreme Court Justices and the AZ senators votes:
Ruth Bader Ginsburg: Roll Call vote. McCain voted aye in tandem with Democrat AZ Sen. Dennis DiConcini on confirming this radical appointee.
Stephen Breyer: Roll Call vote. Again, McCain and DiConcini both voted aye for the Democrat.
Sonia Sotomayor: Roll Call vote. In an out of character move, McCain and Kyl both voted nay on confirmation of Democrat although she was the first Hispanic woman appointed to the high court.
Elena Kagan: Roll Call vote McCain and Kyl each voted nay on confirmation. Apparently her partisan political background was too much for them to even split their votes.
David Souter (ret.): Roll Call vote. Once again, McCain voted aye with Democrat AZ Sen. Dennis DiConcini. Souter, a nominal Republican appointed by George H. W. Bush, turned further left as a justice. He retired not long after Obama was elected, calculatingly allowing him to appoint Democrat Sotomayor as his successor.
