Republicans set the precedent that 9 months was too short a time, they didn’t have to do that but they did. The average time to process a SCOTUS appointee is 67 days but there are only 42 days until the election. Running an appointee through would be rushed hypocrisy. Anyone who cared to look could see the reasoning for holding up Merrick Garland was political posturing and this week proves it. Trump, Mitch, and their flying monkeys wanted us to believe they cared about our voices but they couldn’t care less about us. They have no integrity. These are political power grabs that have nothing to do with the People.
