This looks so bad…
As liberals attempt to pressure the Republican Party to not appoint a new Supreme Court Justice until after the election, they are now realizing that their own presidential candidate, Joe Biden, was in favor of the same thing in 2016!
According to the Gateway Pundit, “The president has the constitutional duty to nominate; the Senate has the constitutional obligation to provide advice and consent,” Biden wrote in 2016. “It is written plainly in the Constitution that both presidents and senators swear an oath to uphold and defend.”
Biden went on to write, “That’s why I was so surprised and saddened to see Republican leaders tell President Obama and me that they would not even consider a Supreme Court nominee this year. No meetings. No hearings. No votes. Nothing. It is an unprecedented act of obstruction. And it risks a stain on the legacy of all those complicit in carrying out this plan.”
