Some threatened to “burn it all down” in response to the news. Others promised there would be “riots” (shocking!) bad enough to shut the country down.
Naturally, failed 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and her husband and former President Bill Clinton were asked to weigh in on President Trump’s promise to submit a nominee for consideration in short order as well as Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s statement that Trump’s nominee would “receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate.”
In an absolute shock to no one, Hillary Clinton condemned Trump and McConnell, accusing them of “undermining … our institutions” in a “lust for power.” And in an interview done Sunday, Bill Clinton accidentally committed a self-own in comments he made to CNN’s Jake Tapper on the issue:
Like his wife, Bill Clinton’s self-awareness was nowhere to be found here. Not just on the matter of being a hypocrite, but also on the “one set of rules” lecture. Our political history is littered over the last 30 years with examples of there being one set of rules for the Clintons and one for everyone else:
