Senator Al Franken on the Supreme Court Matter

This pretty much speaks for itself. One of many money quotes:

“The president has a four-year term,” said Franken. “Scientists tell us that there are approximately ten months left in his term.”

“But then I hear colleagues from the other side saying: ‘Well you know what, if the election goes the wrong way, I’d be happy to consider this nomination during the lame duck.’ How absurd is that? So it’s ‘let the people decide’ unless they decide on Hillary Clinton, in which case ‘let us decide.’
