Jane Fonda urges Dems to be 'as tough as Mitch McConnell,' block RBG successor

Jane Fonda urged Democrats to beas tough as Mitch McConnelland not allow Republicans to fill the vacant Hooggeregshof seat left behind by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Fonda spoke onReal Time with Bill Maher,” after news broke during the taping of the show that Ginsburg had died at 87 after a long battle with cancer.

As a political battle looms over Ginsburg’s replacement, Fonda pleaded that the left must hold the line following the bitter 2016 battle to replace Justice Antonin Scalia after his sudden death.

I’m still reeling, Bill,” Fonda told host Bill Maher. “I just heard that Ruth Bader Ginsburg died. We have to be as tough as Mitch McConnell and not allow them to do one frickinthing until the election results. ek bedoel, we have to rise up and not allow them to do it. If Mitch McConnell can do it, let’s get somegrow some bs and ovaries.


McConnell held up then-President Obama’s SCOTUS nomination of Merrick Garland in 2016, met verwysing na die “Biden rule” — made by the then-senator in 1992 about not confirming justices during an election year, particularly when the Senate is controlled by the opposing party. In a statement Friday evening, the Senate majority leader announced his intent to proceed with the confirmation process, despite the November election being just weeks away.

Tydens “Ware tyd”‘s panel discussion, The Dispatch writer-at-large Tim Miller predicted the battle over Ginsburg’s vacant seat would get “regtig, really uglyand that McConnell wouldjamthe nominee through.

This is literally the worst-case scenario,” Miller said before predicting President Trump would pick Circuit Court Judge Amy Coney Barrett as his nominee.

After praising Ginsburg asawesome,” Maher expressed his concerns over the power Trump still has as president.

I’ve said it before on this show, power begets powers,” Maher gesê. “This is why you cannot let a guy like Trump become presidentbecause it’s not just about the presidency.
