Democrat political activist Alyssa Milano got very upset when President Trump nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the US Supreme Court last Saturday.
After Judge Barrett was nominated by Trump, Milano took her displeasure out on Twitter.
She was clearly very upset with the supposed “unprecedented” nomination during a presidential election. Except — it was not unprecedented. In fact, it has occurred more than half a dozen times in our country’s history.
David Shafer, the Chairman of the Georgia Republican Party, shared her tweet and set her straight.
According to Shafer, not only did Dwight Eisenhower and Woodrow Wilson appoint nominees for the Supreme Court of the United States, but it has happened several times in the United States’ history.
One Twitter user replied to her tweet and posted a graph in her comment thread.
The graph shows 8 instances of justices leaving during election years and the number of days between the election day and when they left the seat vacant. It also shows when the outcome of the vote was determined.
Another Twitter user brought Biden into the topic by posting a video clip of him in a 2016 interview. The caption read, “Biden’s dementia must be getting REALLY bad. He can’t even remember his own stance from 2016.”
In the clip, Biden is recorded saying, “The Constitution clearly states that the President ‘shall’ — not ‘may’ — ‘shall’ nominate someone to the Supreme Court when there’s a vacancy.”
Well, it’s not the first time that Biden contradicts himself, so it shouldn’t really come as a surprise.
Now, Milano shows us once again that she has no idea what she’s talking about.
What’s up with the Democrats?
