Barack Obama’s 2016 Tweets Demanding the Senate “Fill the Supreme Court Vacancy” Come Back to Haunt Him

By Cristina Laila

Former President Barack Obama issued a statement late Friday night on the passing of Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

In the statement, Obama demanded the Republican controlled Senate not vote on any replacement for Ginsburg until a new president is sworn following the November presidential election.

Obama cited his failed 2016 nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to back up his support for Ginsburg’s reported dying “instructions” that her replacement be nominated by a new president.

“My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed,” Ginsburg reportedly said.

However Obama’s 2016 tweets instructing the Senate to confirm a new SCOTUS following the death of conservative justice Antonin Scalia is coming back to haunt him.

On August 30, 2016, Barack Obama demanded the GOP Senate fill the Supreme Court vacancy with Merrick Garland.

“Summer’s almost over, Senate leaders. #DoYourJob” Obama said in a tweet.

 

Again, on October 19, 2016 Barack Obama insisted the Senate confirm his SCOTUS nominee.

 

It looks like Barack Obama agrees with President Trump!
