On March 16, 2016, President Barack Obama, a Democrat, nominated Garland to serve as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court to fill the vacancy created by the death of Antonin Scalia. The Senate Republican majority refused to hold a hearing or vote on this nomination made during the last year of Obama’s presidency, with the Republican majority insisting that the next elected president should fill the vacancy. Senate Republicans’ unprecedented refusal to consider the nomination was considered highly controversial. Garland’s nomination lasted 293 days and expired on January 3, 2017, at the end of the 114th Congress. The seat Garland was nominated for was eventually filled by Neil Gorsuch, appointed by President Donald Trump.

I agree, the Democrats should stack the court.
So you’re okay with Mitch, who 98% of Americans cannot vote for or against, being able to subvert the will of the House, or be a hypocrite on giving Americans a voice in the pick?
Oh, you’re just seagull-trolling, you really don’t say anything of value.
