Do you all have your phones handy? Today would be a very good day to flood Sen. Chris Coons’ office with irate phone calls. Why?
Sen. Chris Coons, D-Delaware, a member of the Judiciary Committee told CNN he is still seething over the Republicans’ decision to block Judge Merrick Garland from filling the seat when they refused to hold hearings and votes on his nomination last year.
“But I’m not going to do to President Trump’s nominee what the Republicans in the Senate did to President Obama’s,” Coons said. “I will push for a hearing and I will push for a vote.
Other Democrats privately agreed with that sentiment.
No. He says he’s angry that the moderate nominee of a legitimate president wasn’t considered. But, of course, that’s no reason not to consider the right wing nominee of a Fascist who is trying to destroy the independence of the judiciary.
What the fuck is WRONG with this guy? He needs to hear from all of us that this cannot be countenanced. Forget about waiting until 2020. This has to be stopped now.
For those of you who don’t have his office on speed-dial:
Wilmington: (302) 573-6345
Dover: (302) 736-5601
D. C.: (202) 224-5042.
Just. DO it!
