Vacation ‘Trumps’ Principles for Dems on President’s Judges

From The Blaze:

Some on the left expressed anger and outrage as Democrats in the U.S. Senate showed that they put much more of an importance on one thing over defeating the legacy of President Donald Trump — their vacation time.

Here’s what happened

The Republicans controlling the Senate cancelled their scheduled August recess in order to pursue legislation in advance of Trump’s and their agenda.

Rather than stay and fight by using parliamentary procedures to stall and possibly block some of them, Democrats decided to cave on his judicial nominations so that they could go home.

Even progressive news outlet Huffington Post called it a “major win” for Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, whose “No. 1 priority is filling up federal courts with conservative judges ― many of whom are incredibly anti-abortion, anti–LGBTQ rights and anti–voting rights.”

Those are delicious liberal tears emanating from HuffPost.

The results:

… (Marco Rubio tweeted) “Cancelling August recess resulted in the most productive Senate work period in recent memory. Today alone we confirmed seven more judges & 27 executive branch nominees.”

Rubio predicts that eight more judges will be confirmed next week.

  1. Can we now do an ObamaCare repeal as promised two years ago? McCain will not be around for a thumbs down.
