Chris Wallace Confronts McConnell on SCOTUS: ‘Fair Amount of Hypocrisy’ Here (Mediaite)

On Fox News Sunday today, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell argued that Democrats are hypocrites on the Supreme Court. Chris Wallace shot back, “Isn’t there a fair about of hypocrisy on both sides here?”

McConnell said that Harry Reid, Chuck Schumer, all held very different thoughts on the Senate taking up Supreme Court nominees, but Wallace pointed out that so did McConnell himself in 2005.

Wallace asked him if he thought 11 years ago an up-or-down vote on judicial nominees is a simple fair principle, “is it still true?” McConnell dismissed that as “apples and oranges,” as he wasn’t talking about a Supreme Court nominee.
