Amid the devastating news that Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy has chosen to retire now, handing another judicial pick to Trump, Democrats are beginning to speak out against allowing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to exercise his glaring hypocrisy.
On March 16, 2016, 237 days before Election Day, Barack Obama nominated Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court, a move that McConnell blocked, claiming that the “American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice.”
Now, amid Kennedy’s retirement announcement, which comes 132 days before this upcoming election cycle, California Senator and likely 2020 presidential hopeful Kamala Harris has demanded that the people be given that same opportunity to let their voices be heard.

The likelihood that McConnell is willing to follow the precedent that he established is slim to none, putting on full display the GOP’s glaring, disgusting hypocrisy. But Democrats will not go down without a bitter fight.
