Pants on Fire: Andrea Mitchell Thinks Republicans ‘Never’ Gave Merrick Garland ‘A Meeting’ (NewsBusters)

On Sunday’s Meet the Press, correspondent and MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell perpetuated a glaring lie that not a single Republican Senator met with Obama Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland (when at least 16 met with him) in order to predict that the GOP should not underestimate the opposition aimed at Trump pick Neil Gorsuch.

“They have to figure this out, but the passion over Merrick Garland, and the way he was treated, the humiliation of never even giving him a meeting, no less a hearing, among these Republicans is not to be underestimated,” Mitchell complained as she produced this piece of false news.
