Harvard Law professor Laurence Tribe called Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell “a flagrant dickhead” on Thursday for his apparent reversal on filling a Supreme Court vacancy in an election year.
McConnell refused to meet with Merrick Garland, who was former President Barack Obamas Supreme Court nominee in 2016, explaining that the next president should fill the vacancy following Antonin Scalias death. That decision resurfaced Wednesday when McConnell said he would try to fill a vacancy if one were to open in the final year of Trumps first term.
Hypocrisy is McTurtles middle name. And his first and last name too. What a flagrant dickhead! https://t.co/17vKziC2eJ

Tribe tweeted a link to an article in The Economist about McConnells new comments with the caption, “Hypocrisy is McTurtles middle name. And his first and last name too. What a flagrant dickhead!” (RELATED: Supreme Court Will Review Cross-Border Shooting By Border Patrol Agent)
