In a stunning display of generosity, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer reportedly offered his sage advice to President Trump as to whom his nominee should be for the Supreme Court seat soon to be vacated by retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy.
Schumer reportedly suggested the same judge whose nomination by former president Barack Obama was stopped by the GOP Senate so that Obama could not solidify the Court as a bastion of leftism: Merrick Garland.
Schumer has been bloviating about what Trump should do since the very moment Kennedy announced his imminent retirement; only last week he whined about the timing of the nomination:
Of course, Elena Kagan was nominated by former president Barack Obama in May 10, 2010, and confirmed by the U.S. Senate on August 5, 2010, which was a midterm election year, so there’s that . . .
CNBC reported that when Schumer called Trump, he warned that picking a justice hostile to Roe v. Wade or Obamacare would be “cataclysmic.”
