  2. Keep our word by breaking our word? That’s a pretty bizarre way to operate but that’s Republicans I suppose

  3. If you want to pick Justices then you should win both the Senate and Presidency…..

  4. All these people calling McConnell a hypocrite, are ignoring how Schumer and his ilk were arguing the exact opposite

  5. If the Democrats had the president and the senate, I’m sure they’d be rushing to replace a justice in no time flat too.

  6. Next level GOP fuckery. Theyve taken the bar and thrown it in the Marianas trench

  7. Really ignoring her DYING WISH while also dropping her name in your speech, that is low shit McConnell, low low

  9. FILL THE SEAT! MAGA 🇺🇸
    Sorry that your mail in voting fraud won’t hold up now 💁🏻‍♂️

  10. 🤡🤡🤡Pelosi, McConnell, and Schumer are all colleagues. Don’t get it twisted. They all don’t care about the American people.

  11. The only currency in DC is power. Honor has no value.

  12. It’s not rushing. It’s the process. And we all know with all the shit going on with the voting/cheating etc, we need all justices on board bc it very likely will come to down to their decision. We also know this wasn’t her “last wish;” just another way for the Dems to exploit something. Schumer has a lot of nerve talking about morals and ethics

  13. TELL CHUCK SCHUMER TO WORK TO PASS THE “STIMULUS BILL”. (DO YOUR JOB) HE HAS NO AUTHORITY REGARDING THIS…AND HE KNOWS IT.

  14. They should fill it , does crying chuck doesn’t understand this is politics!?
