Senator Roy Blunt (R-MO) joins the show to discuss President Trump nominating a replacement for the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Senator Blunt says there will be a vote. He explains that when a President and a Senate are in agreement, the vote typically happens.
He also believes that if everything goes smoothly, they will be able to get through the vetting, hearing, and voting process before the election.
Schumer and fellow Democrats will use every tool possible to slow the process down. However, Senator Blunt believes that Schumer would have made the exact same decision that Mitch McConnell made if the President were a Democrat and his party controlled the Senate.
Senator Blunt also compliments Ruth Bader Ginsburg as a ‘clearly brilliant’ individual who was able to disagree with friends and colleagues without ruining relationships.
Although this process doesn’t mean the Senate can’t get a COVID relief package through, Blunt admits it is a distraction from everything.
