‘It’s not his turn’: Are we 5? MSNBC’s Matthews slams ‘Mr. Nice Guy’ Gorsuch in a tantrum

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews is having a tantrum over “Mr. nice guy” Neil Gorsuch.

Mathews urged senate Democrats on Tuesday to vote against President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee because it simply is not his “turn.”

“It’s not about being a ‘sap’ or a ‘chump’ or any other word you call a person who gets taken and lets himself or herself get taken again,” Matthews chastised Democrats in his “Hardball” commentary Tuesday.

Trump “wants Democrats to join Republicans in giving his pick the 60 votes to override the expected filibuster,” Matthews argued, referring back to the decision by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to hold off on former President Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland after the death of Justice Antonin Scalia last year.

“Let me suggest a very good reason not to let this happen. It’s not about Trump’s pick, it’s about the President Obama’s pick, the one Mitch McConnell and his bunch decided did not even deserve a vote, did not even deserve a hearing, did not even deserve the respect of someone nominated to this high position,” Matthews said, slamming McConnell’s call to wait for the incoming president to fill the Supreme Court vacancy.

“I don’t want to see Donald Trump stuff his nominee through the hoop. Why? Because it’s not his turn. It’s Merrick Garland’s turn and everyone knows it,” Matthews said, all but stamping his foot.

“Vote nay on Gorsuch, demand the 60 votes and don’t give them to Trump,” Matthews implored. “It’s not this guy’s turn. It’s not his guy’s turn and all the charm and dancing and Mr. Nice Guy is not going to change it. It’s not about Gorsuch or even Trump. It’s about Mitch McConnell and the brand of low-level politics he stands for. Get it?”
