On eve of Trump's Supreme Court pick, top Dem suggests sacrificing Senate seats to stop nomination

There are 32 comments on the Fox News story from Jul 8, 2018, titled On eve of Trump's Supreme Court pick, top Dem suggests sacrificing Senate seats to stop nomination. In it, Fox News reports that:

Just one day before President Trump is set to announce his pick to replace retiring Supreme Court Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy in a primetime address from the White House, a top Democratic senator suggested that stopping the nominee is more important than the upcoming midterm elections. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., acknowledged that so-called red-state Democrats may be tempted to vote for Trump's selection out of political necessity, but urged his colleagues Sunday to consider more than their political careers.

Dumb Democrat Durbin.
He actually believes that putting more Republicans in the Senate will help his cause.
Just goes to show how utterly clueless the Democrat Party actually is.

Democrats are defending 22 Senate seats in November, and 5 are already polling behind their Republican opponent, 2 are running even. I wouldn't think they would be stupid enough to go out of their way to lose any additional seats. But you never can tell, I guess. They cannot stop the nomination, if it isn't confirmed now it will be confirmed in January when the new Senators are seated. Then there is the funny phone call Schumer made to the President advising him he could nominate their choice for the S C. I remember when Ronald Reagan cut a deal with the Democrat Majority Leader at the time, and they renigged. They cannot be trusted. It is fun watching them beg though.

He lies like you do, and you lick his bottom for it. Repulsive but sadly, true.

When are you going to supply any documentation to your claims? Or didn't Putin's boys provide you with that information, liar?

You're going DOWN in November. Mark my words.

Reagan was a scumbag, but a liberal by your and Trump's standards. And the word, racist, is "reneged." Can't spell in English, Comrade?

gleebile there is so much information out here, all you have to do is look for it. As long as the Democrat party is attached to the Clinton crime syndicate they will lose elections. The only people interested in what the Democrats stand for are the very rich, and the very poor. There is a huge number of Americans in the middle that learned in 2016 their votes really counts, and they will come out in November to give the President the support he needs to make America the country the Founders always knew she could be. A free country with smaller government, less taxes, a working country.

Why can't Trump appoint himself to the Supreme Court? As president, he can poison the other eight justices. And as Chief Justice, he can destroy the world. What more can a mentally compromised, self-absorbed, conscience-free, total moron want?

This sounds good to me. More progressive democrats falling on their swords in an effort to keep the US Constitution from being upheld in the highest court in the land!

Let the progressive democrat political suicides begin!

God Bless President Trump - The swamp is slowly but surely beginning to drain at last! Like a malignancy in the body politic, the progressive cancer is being eliminated.
