Schumer Begs Trump To Nominate Obama’s Pick for Supreme Court Seat

15

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer appealed to President Donald Trump to repeat his predecessor’s choice and nominate federal judge Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court for a second time “as a way to unify the country,” according to a source.

Garland, who is the chief judge on the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, was nominated by President Barack Obama in 2016 to replace the late Justice Antonin Scalia. However, Republicans refused to hold a hearing on his nomination, citing the 2016 election.

According to the source, Schumer also warned Trump of “cataclysmic” consequences if he picked a nominee that is “hostile” to the Affordable Care Act and Roe v. Wade — the landmark 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion nationwide.

  1. ACA and DACA are just two of the plagues inflicted upon this country by Obama. As for the nominee, WHY would the President agree to that?

  2. “hostile” to the Affordable Care Act and Roe v. Wade – now the President knows what he has to zoom in.

  3. What is Schumer smoking. The Dems would not vote for Trump even if he would be stupid enough to to do as Schumer asked.
    Trump would loose many Rep votes for nominating Garland.

  4. ‘rav gadol’?! what a joke….a ‘rav gadol’ should support retzicha
    murder the bnei noach are also ? oh, you mean
    ‘erev rav godol’ you are the godal rav of the eirev rav ,like reform etc etc

      • An appeal for mentschlichkeit to someone who has no shred of decency is wasted. While you mean well, I honestly believe the individual you directed your request to is a rasha, possibly an apikores, who enjoys calling those he disagrees with “Reform”, “Christians” and other names, then mocks those who politely ask that he refrain from doing so (as he just did to you). It’s sad.

  5. So Mr. Schumer is threatening the President of the United States?! I would have the FBI have a little chat with the Senator. The Democrat Party have now begun threatening violence on Republicans and the stupid Jeff Sessions couldn’t care less. Eric Holder NEVER would of let the Republicans get away with this incitement, had the shoe been on the other foot. Jeff Sessions should be held responsible if these threats causes some crazy to go out harm a Republican. Why President Trump has not fired Floppy Ears, is beyond me.

  6. I think as a way of unifying the country he should nominate Ted Cruz. Cruz would be a tremendous supreme court justice and I think the country would be very unified, mr. schumer. I don’t think garland would be so unifying, mr. schumer. I think that the honorable democratic party should get behind the president and for the sake of the country all vote yay for the president’s nominee and not vote nay just on party lines, mr. schumer. In other words, Mr. Schumer, you sound like you lost your mind.

  7. On July 4th Sick Schumer tweeted: “Today, I am celebrating the FREEDOM of women to make their own health care decisions, as established by the Supreme Court in Roe v. Wade.”
    President Trump shouldn’t give a hoot what Meshugene Schumer who celebrates the murder of millions of babies suggests.
