NBC Actually Grills WH Chief of Staff on Obama’s ‘Supreme’ Hypocrisy
After McDonough called on the Senate to “do its job” and allow a vote on Merrick Garland, Guthrie countered: “When it comes to these judicial nominations, perhaps neither side has clean hands entirely. Back when Senator Obama was in office he voted against Justice Robert’s nomination and Justice Alito’s nomination. So is this a case of what’s good for the goose is what’s good for the gander? How does he explain that now?”
McDonough claimed: “…in both of those cases not only did senators meet with and give a hearing to those candidates, but in fact, they voted on them. And that’s exactly the process that we’re asking for here.”
Guthrie promptly corrected him: “But, Denis, President Obama voted to filibuster Justice Alito, which is another way of saying not bring him to the Senate floor for a full vote.”
