DNC Chair: Trump ‘the Most Extreme, Divisive ... Dangerous, Vulgar’ Candidate

‘We are going to make sure that Americans ask themselves a question: Do I really want Donald Trump nominating the next Supreme Court justice?’

BLITZER: “How do you think this is going to play out in the election? This is an election season, obviously the presidential election, Senate elections, House elections. This whole issue, which obviously is a critically important issue, there are four liberal justices right now in the Supreme Court, four conservatives with the passing of Justice Antonin Scalia. This could shake the balance of the Supreme Court, not just for four years or eight years but for 20 or 30 years down the road.” 
WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: “It sure could, exactly. And so, the opening on this — on the Supreme Court makes the stakes of the outcome for this election even more significant. You know, we’re going to make sure that Americans are — ask themselves the question, do I really want Donald Trump nominating the next Supreme Court justice? I mean, that is going to be hung around the neck of every Republican candidate in the country. And, you know, we’re happy to hear them say, yes, that’s what they want, because this is the most extreme divisive un-American, dangerous, vulgar Republican candidate for president that has — that has certainly been nominated in modern times. And, you know, when you have a candidate that espouses torture, that has proposed unconstitutional policies, you know, that’s who we want to place in the hands the balance of the Supreme Court? I think Americans will reject his candidacy —“
BLITZER: “Well, are you —“
WASSERMAN SCHULTZ: “— based just on this.”
