Democrats have been in panic mode since the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
The corporate press is in lockstep with them to stop Donald Trump from confirming a third Supreme Court Justice.
But Nancy Pelosi was stunned after a surprising question about Justice Ginsburg.
The so-called mainstream media have become the propaganda wing of the Democrat Party.
Democrat politicians know the press will back every one of their plays, paper over their mistakes, and avoid asking them difficult questions.
So when a Democrat actually gets a challenging question from a reporter, they don’t know how to react.
That’s what happened to Nancy Pelosi during an interview with CBS host Gayle King.
Gayle King is a big supporter of the Democrat Party, but surprisingly asked Pelosi a question that all Americans have been wondering.
Pelosi and the Democrats have railed against the Republicans for filling Justice Ginsburg’s seat in 2020 while voting against a confirmation hearing for Merrick Garland in 2016.
That caused King to ask Pelosi:
“Madam Speaker, they always say, ‘He who has the votes has the power.’ Don’t you think the Democrats would do the same thing if the situation was reversed?”
Pelosi was immediately on the defensive.
“No, no…that is absolutely not true.”
King persisted with her line of questioning, and Pelosi said, “This is totally, completely inappropriate. And counter to what they said when Justice Scalia passed. But it’s no use getting into their hypocrisy. What we have to make sure people know, they must vote. They must vote early so that the message, their voices, their vote, that that message comes clearly. All of the polling shows that people do not want the Affordable Care Act overturned.”
Pelosi tried to pivot to healthcare – which will be the Democrats’ line of attack against Barrett –but lost in Pelosi’s rambling answer is that the situation with Merrick Garland is not applicable because the White House and Senate were controlled by different parties in 2016.
In those instances, only two out of ten vacancies have been filled in an election year.
However, the seat is almost always automatically filled in an election year when the White House and Senate are controlled by the same party.
She and Biden exemplify a party that’s out of ideas and they aren’t too good at obscuring that fact.
In the aftermath of Ginsburg’s death, there were some concerns that RINOs in the Senate would cave to pressure from the press, but Majority Leader Mitch McConnell seems to have secured the 50 votes he needs.
Even still, if Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing taught the country anything, it’s that the Democrats will stoop to any low in order to seize power.
Attempting to destroy Barrett during her confirmation will be a giant mistake for the left, but they can’t help themselves.
