Normally little value parses Obama’s lips. However his thoughts on SCOTUS picks should rile the Left demanding it is done after the election.
There was no surprise Obama brought up the time the Senate refused his pick, Merrick Garland, in his last days. Republicans had a majority so it wouldn’t have passed anyway.
If the shoe was on the other foot, the Democrats wouldn’t cede an advantage with a SCOTUS pick nor respect the dying wishes of a judge.
