“This is something to be really proud of and feel good about,” said Mitch McConnell, the contented Republican leader in the Senate. “We have made an important contribution to the future of this country. Much of what we have done over the past four years will sooner or later be undone in future elections. But they (read: Democrats) will not be able to change much about this in the near future. ”
The pissed off Democrats see it differently. They still feel highly that the then Republican-led Senate flatly refused to hold hearings for President Barack Obama’s then-candidate, Liberal Judge Merrick Garland, in the 2016 election year. The argument then was that such an important appointment would be inappropriate, just before the election. The Senators were able to withhold his appointment for eight months.
Democratic Senate leader Chuck Schumer made it another big point this weekend. “Don’t forget it, America. Don’t forget what’s going on here. ”

Trump wants to celebrate the expected appointment of ‘his’ Chief Justice with an outdoor party at the White House. The goal is to keep as much distance as possible at the meeting, said a White House spokesman. The party follows the vote on Barrett later today in the Senate.
The previous event around Barrett turned out to be a super spreader of the corona virus. Trump held a meeting at the White House in late September to announce his choice of Barrett, with virtually no one keeping their distance or wearing a face mask. Shortly afterwards, the president and others present were found to be infected with corona. Trump had to go to a hospital for three days.
