….the classic ‘legal’ definition of chutzpah….a person who kills his parents and pleads for the court’s mercy on the ground of being an orphan….
This afternoon, via Twitter, from Mike Pence (r):
Vice President Mike Pence @VP
…Justice Antonin Scalia was confirmed 98-0 and Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg received support of 96 Senators. If we lived in a more respectful time, Judge Brett Kavanaugh would be overwhelmingly confirmed by the United States Senate. #ConfirmKavanaugh
3:03 PM – 28 Aug 2018
Some of the responses:
If we lived in a better time, you’d be an anonymous potato farmer.
Actually he would be still be a DJ on a low-powered radio station somewhere in an Indiana cornfield.
If we lived in a more respectful time, all records would be released #WhatAreTheyHiding
#UnindictedCoConspirator doesn’t get to pick his own judge.
Remind us again how many votes Merrick Garland got.
If we lived in a more respectful time, you would not be Vice President.
If we lived in a more respectful time, Judge Merrick Garland would have been overwhelmingly confirmed by the United States Senate instead of being back burnered for months and months by your party. What a hypocrite!
Manafort’s top draft pick.
Сделать Америку великой Снова.
Well blame your boss for not living in respectful times.
Traitor says what?
If the documents had all been released already we’d have no problem beginning hearings. This nominee lied in confirmation hearings held on his appointment to the circuit court. We will not seat a man of no integrity.
Trump once said, “Most people aren’t worthy of respect.” His behavior toward others continues to demonstrate this belief. The lack of respect is coming from the top. If you wanted to live in more respectful times, you shouldn’t have helped him into the WH. #MerrickGarland
If we lived in a more respectful time, your boss would not Tweet hate towards everyone except those who bow at his feet. #YourBossIsUnindictedCriminal #NoKavanaughUntilMuellerIsDone
This is disgusting. If we lived in a more respectful time, the GOP would have given Merrick Garland A HEARING. And in a more respectful time, Trump would not be sitting in the Oval Office, and you, as transition head, would not have ignored bipartisan concerns over traitor Flynn.
what about MERRICK GARLAND? where was the respect owed him? where was his vote?
garland’s not on the record perjuring himself. garland wasn’t working in concert to hide 85% of his records from congress. garland didn’t say that a POTUS couldn’t be indicted.
Um…and Elena Kagan had to show ALL her papers from when she was an advisor the White House. THAT is the holdup over Kavanaugh. Republicans are damming up the flow of those documents that will be incriminating against Kavanaugh. Respect has nothing to do with it; documents do.
What was the final vote for Merrick Garland?
Was the president who nominated them under investigation for committing treason and working with Russia to make himself president?
If we lived in a more respectful time, you wouldn’t be in office. #complicit
Judge Merrick Garland deserved the support of every member of the United States Senate. If we lived in a more respectful time, Garland would have been easily confirmed. Your hypocrisy knows no bounds. #ReleaseTheRecords
NOPE Sorry Kremlin Ken. We don’t want a Putin appointed president to decide who sits on our highest court.
How DARE you complain about times not being “respectful”. The man you are enabling and hiding behind is the least respectful and most abusive person in our government, and is the top reason why our country is so divided and disrespectful. Get HIM to change, or stop your whining
Merrick Garland. Merrick Garland. Merrick Garland. Merrick Garland. Merrick Garland. Merrick Garland. Merrick Garland. Merrick Garland. Merrick Garland. Merrick Garland. Merrick Garland. Merrick Garland. Merrick Garland. Merrick Garland. Merrick Garland.
What was the vote on Merrick Garland, @VP?
“If we lived in a more respectful time…” With all due respect Mr. Vice President, get bent.
Only if we lived in less corrupt days.
have you had your irony surgically removed, or are you just that incapable of understanding it?
You have got to be kidding me. Tell me this is a joke.
Two words: Merrick Garland. Three more: so shut up.
A president under investigation should not pick his judge. #NoHearings
If we lived in a more respectful times, Merrick Garland would be a Supreme Court Justice, actual Nazis wouldn’t be running for public office, and Donald Trump wouldn’t be either a celebrity or a president.
Yep. Justice Merrick Garland fully agrees.
The ABSURD posturing around blocking Merrick Garland’s nomination and refusing to even let a vote happen has left your party with ZERO moral high ground to complain about lack of cooperation with Supreme Court nominations, you jackass
Not forgetting the confirmation vote for Merrick Garland, you pompous, purpose-less poser.
The hypocrisy runs deep in this one.
Merrick Effing Garland you putz
You set the standard.
Now live with it.
The difference is Scalia and RGB we’re appointed by a democratically elected administration. #NoNewAppointments
You’re a stooge, a crook and a flunky, Pence. Everybody knows it, even those who pretend otherwise to your face.
It goes on and on.
Mike Pence (r) is a putz. And probably the only reason why Donald Trump (r) won’t be impeached, convicted, and removed from office.
