On Friday, the news broke out about Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death which rocked the nation, and brought much heated politics into display.
After the news broke out, all of the Democrats quickly rushed to Twitter to demand that we must wait until after the election to appoint a new SCOTUS justice.
Here’s the problem, none of them wanted to “wait” after conservative Justice Antonin Scalia died in February 2016.
As a matter of fact, former President Barrack Obama is likely deeply regretting a tweet that he had sent out in 2016 when he told the Senate to “do their job” and “consider appointees” fairly before the election.

“Reminder: It’s the Senate’s job to fairly consider Supreme Court nominees. #DoYourJob”, Obama tweeted.
Joe Biden also jumped into the discussion, saying the Senate had a “constitutional responsibility” to fill the seat:
Republican Senators — Remember that Joe Biden said it’s your "constitutional duty" to give the President’s Supreme Court pick a hearing in an election year or else you’re putting us in danger of entering a constitutional crisis. 😁👍🏼 pic.twitter.com/nY6b6u5zde

Now that it’s 2020 and Donald Trump is president, both Obama and Biden want to wait until the election is finished to appoint a new SCOTUS.
After seeing what they did to Brett Kavanaugh and how they treated him, we as conservatives need to stand up and say no way.
