Trump Gloats About How “Nice” Republicans Are Over SCOTUS Delay, What He Says Is Disgusting

Remember what Republicans did to Obama's SCOTUS pick? This will make you sick.

Donald Trump and the Republican Party are conveniently forgetting that they held up former President Barack Obama’s SCOTUS nominee Merrick Garland for 293 days, setting a record for the longest nomination process in the history of Supreme Court nominations. And yet these morons have the nerve to whine about a tiny delay due to sexual assault allegations by multiple women against Trump nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Earlier today, Trump decided to shame Democrats by praising Senate Republicans on how “respectful” they have been about the accusers that have come forward and caused the process to be pushed back — even though many GOPers and the president himself have publicly attacked Kavanaugh’s accusers. When a reporter asked Trump, “what are your thoughts on the woman questioning Kavanaugh’s accuser tomorrow,” Trump replied:

Well, I think the Senate, the Republicans could not be nicer in the way they are handling this. They could have pushed it through two and a half weeks ago and you wouldn’t be talking about it right now, which is frankly what I would have preferred. But they didn’t do that.

The Republicans could not be nicer and more respectful to the process. Certainly could not be more respectful to the woman, and I’m okay with that. I think I might have pushed it forward a lot faster.”

And of course, Trump praised Kavanaugh and accused the Democrats of running a “con game.” Proving once again that Trump is more than comfortable praising a man who may have sexually assaulted multiple women, the president said:

I know this particular man, Judge Kavanaugh. He’s outstanding. You don’t find people like this. He’s outstanding. He’s a gem. He is an absolute gem. And he has been treated very unfairly by the Democrats who are playing a con game. They know what they’re doing. It’s a con. They went into a back room and talked with each other and they laugh at what they’re getting away with. It’s a con game and that’s what they play and about the only thing they do well.”

It is a travesty that this man is president. You can watch his comments below:
