Fox News host Chris Wallace got in a heated exchange with contributor Trey Gowdy over today’s Supreme Court confirmation hearing.

The acrimonious exchange promptly followed Wallace asking Gowdy if the GOP’s behavior in the case of pushing Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation versus blocking Merrick Garland’s nomination in 2016 was purely political.

WATCH:

Mediaite’s Charlie Nash reports:

During Fox News’ coverage of Barrett’s Supreme Court confirmation hearing, Wallace asked Gowdy, “Is it civics that the Republicans blocked the Merrick Garland nomination 269 days before the election and they’re pushing this one through now 22 days, or is it pure politics?”

Gowdy replied, “It’s pure, raw politics. But also what is pure, raw politics is the one Republican who’s actually done what most of us want to see, which is treat Supreme Court justices fairly, is Lindsey Graham who voted for Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor, and the reward for that is a historic level of money pouring in to try to kick him out of the Senate.”

Wallace then interjected, stating that while he appreciated Gowdy’s foreright response, the record also showed that Sen. Graham had flip-flopped on Supreme Court nominations in presidential election years.

“Having said that, it was Lindsey Graham who in 2018 or 2019 at a forum said, ‘Look, if there is a nomination in the final year after the primaries start in 2020 for Donald Trump I will not bring it up before my committee,’ and he even said, ‘Mark the tape and hold me to account on that,’” Wallace continued. “So he has flipped entirely.”

Gowdy returned fire with a pithy observation, “And so has every Democrat…”

The two men began talking over each other until Fox News Chief Anchor Bill Hemmer inserted himself, declaratively saying, “Gentleman. Wait a minute here. We are debating history, okay? From four years ago.”

Hemmer continued:

“Today in 2020, you’ve got a leading candidate in Joe Biden who has been asked repeatedly over the past several weeks whether or not he would pack the court if he won, and he’s yet to even provide an answer, and we are still waiting on that day after day,” Hemmer concluded. “So that’s where we are in 2020.”

Because this is the tactic of the demonRATs, they run all the platforms, making them the most powerful entity on earth. They demonize all that is good and praise all that is bad, as they spoon feed over and over again what they want you to know and believe. They know that if they say it over and over again and loud enough we all will believe every lie they spew out of their hate filled mouths. They hate America, they want YOU to hate America, to hate God, and to hate each other so “we the people” will hate each other so we will destroy ourselves and our country for them so they can usher in their new world order communist muslim utopia. They are drunk with absolute power and absolute control over us and our paychecks. Their green new deal wants 70% to 90% of our paychecks, and when they get their power back, we will lose everything we hold dear. Just try paying your mortgage, your car payments, or even buying a steak once in a while on 30% of your salary. You will be paying healthcare for the world, because they will give it to anyone who crosses our border. Stand in line, because OUR citizens will be at the end of the line, and pray to God you never get sick because the wait could be months and months. The only people who will be getting good healthcare are the demonRAT politicians that WE THE PEOPLE pay for them.

As like the rest of the people like the Blacks, the dems will only use the illegals until after the election. Then the poor illegals will be left to rot in cardboard boxes like the citizens of LA and Frisco. They are just being used to get the Presidents chair after that they will all as will us too be left to die.

I think you are wonderfully correct however, getting the Biden supporters to take enough time to absorb these accurate comments is blowing my mind! Obviously they want to believe nothing positive and I do not want to live in a society such as Brazil, Venezuela, Cuba or any other place where I do nothing except be a minion for someone else.

There are millions of dipshitz that will always watch CNN or MSNBC. Why is mental health such a BIG issue in health care with the Dems? Because they are totally aware of how many millions of effen nut jobs supporters they have that need their heads examined on a regular and continuous basis and eat up the propaganda promoted by CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC and ABC.
