No cheating you criminals. Grinning sodimites!

Moz Waters says:

many thanks for articulating what could be a pivotal moment for the Trump Administration and more importantly for the US democracy.

Kelvin Smerdon says:

How is the Supreme Court a judicial Court when the judges vote depending on which party they support, that does not seem like fair and impartial justice

Conservative Vanguard says:

How could you watch this and not feel stupid as you do it?

Anthony A says:

propagandist… supreme court going back to the constitution…. this nut is freaking out bc he wants his far left socialist agenda to be pushed … he doesn’t care about our constitutional rights more than he cares about the kids at the boarders… where was his outrage in 2014,2015,2016,2017….
oohh obama was potus he didn’t care but now trump is potus he cares….. gaslighting propagandist

Linda Burger says:

I Love Jill Winebanks

John Lenin says:

Nominees of an illegitimate President are illegitimate. They’ll be gone the day after we hang him.

Butt Hurtz says:

Let's see if Flake is a man of his word. Kinda doubt he be a man of his word.

John Lenin says:

One motivated marine.

Alan Daniels says:

Oh wow….Jeff Flake Lol lol lol….
Desperate men do desperate things. Weakest Senator ever !

Guy Ferrante says:

It won't work.. no more dead babies

Nancy Southern Belle says:

Interesting to see how Senator's Donnelly, Manchin, Heitcamp, Tester, and Mccaskill vote. Representing extremely red states, they vowed to their constituents that they would support bipartisan legislation. So if these Senator's vote no on SC pick, they can certainly kiss their Senate seats goodbye. So they are all in "quite the pickle"

Anna Forhisglory says:

Dems are sore losers, may they all go jump in the river.

Doug Eldredge says:

haha, i love it

Jeff Poisson says:

POTUS WILL GET HIS PICK CONFIRMED PRIOR TO ELECTION. POTUS HAS SO MUCH POLITICAL PULL RIGHT NOW I IMAGINE HE WILL GET MORE DEMOCRATS IN HIS COURT FOR THIS PICK…..ONE TWEET FROM POTUS CAN END A POLITICIANS CAREER. LMAO

Radio Laboratory says:

whats up with your David Byrne jacket Jill?? ditch the 90's shoulder pad look.
"…you may find yourself living in a shotgun shack…" lol

Radio Laboratory says:

would it not be historic if it came down to ONE vote to put it off til after the election, they wheel in John MaCain on a gurney & as only he can do "thumbs down" to save the union once again!!!
awhhhh would that not be one of Americas great moments?!!
ok wake up now, stop dreaming.

Terry Oesch says:

Mueller for president

seashell1286 says:

I would like to see Congress pass laws that will reign in some executive power. Maybe have consequences for Congressmen who aided in Executive corruption… Devin Nunez…

donald trump says:

the senator that votes against Trump will be in office for life

arthur riley says:

Trump is a Russian stooge- God help us all!

rogenalobdell says:

Total Control – all we can hope for is that when Trump is found guilty of treason, etc., he will lead them, by Twitter (of course), and they will all go "Jonestown" and drink the red koolaid (this time poisoned), one last time. Survival of the Fittest, on it's best display!
Then America would be GREAT AGAIN!
