A President, who received 3 million fewer votes, gets to put another Justice on the bench after being confirmed by a Republican majority who represent 11 million fewer Americans than their counterparts, and 2 of those republicans were not elected by the people, but appointed by Governors. Explain to me again how this is a legitimate hearing?

LMAOOOOOOO

People like to talk about the popular vote...but if elections were by popular vote instead of the electoral college then campaigns would have completely different strategies. If the popular vote was the end goal, the result would have been different and no one can say what that would have been

While I appreciate the ideals behind that, you’d be asking liberals to simply accept that conservatives have seized control of the judicial branch for a generation using parliamentary manipulations. I don’t think that’s going to happen.

Good reminder that republicans have appointed 15 of the last 19 justices despite winning the popular vote once in 30 years.

The last 19 justices appointed - going back to Warren Burger, no? Well he was appointed in 1969...over 50 years ago. So you need to compare elections over the same timeframe, not over just the last 30 years...

Its legitimate because the current rules allow for these types of actions. Don't worry, the democrats will change the rules once they win the presidency and senate.
