Bill Clinton’s response to Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death just blew up in the Democrats’ faces
It’s all hands on deck for the Democrat Party.
Not only is there an election in six weeks, but now there is a Supreme Court vacancy.
And Bill Clinton’s response to Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death just blew up in the Democrats’ faces.
After Bill Clinton’s failed attempt at a political comeback at the Democrat National Convention, Americans thought they had seen the last of the former President.
But in the wake of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death Clinton re-emerged to attack the Republicans over their supposed hypocrisy for blocking Barack Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland in 2016 and moving forward with whoever President Trump nominated to succeed Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Setting aside the fact that Article One of the Constitution grants the Senate the power to advise and consent on judicial nominations so Senate Republicans were well within their rights to block Obama’s nominee and confirm Trump’s, Clinton’s line of attack was cringe worthy.
The former President claimed there cannot be two sets of standards in a Democracy.

If anyone has ever benefited from a double-standard it was Bill Clinton.
Clinton survived scandals and credible allegations of sexual assault, harassment, and rape precisely because he was a Democrat and the Fake News Media never held Clinton to the same standard of conduct as they would have a Republican President facing similar allegations.
Clinton’s ridiculous answer showed how far he slipped from the peak of his powers as a politician who could talk his way out of any jam.
And Clinton’s gaffe also demonstrated that Democrats are better off with Clinton off the stage because when Clinton speaks nowadays he only manages to make the story about himself.
