Libs ‘clever’ spin on so-called ‘McConnell rule’ exposed. Here’s how they’re trying to sway America…

Liberals are running with their narrative on the so-called “McConnell rule” despite being exposed for their “clever talk” on the impending Supreme Court nomination.

Revising history to suit the agenda, the left has been slamming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for allegedly flip-flopping on how his chamber should handle the nomination of a Supreme Court Justice during an election year.

A meltdown was unleashed in the liberal camp as Justice Anthony Kennedy announced he was retiring Wednesday, leaving the door open for President Trump to appoint a replacement who could affect the high court’s decisions for generations to come.

McConnell spiked the panic on the left by announcing efforts to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy before the midterms. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer raised the alarm and reminded voters that former President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, Merrick Garland, was not even given a hearing because it was an election year.

He followed up with a video montage to drive home his point.

This narrative was picked up by other liberals and the indignation quickly spread.

“Late Show” host Stephen Colbert aired a clip titled “Mitch McConnell’s Supreme About Face” on Wednesday’s show.

Senate Democrats, including Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren, are also apparently unfamiliar with McConnell’s actual work.

Ever resistant to facts, the left missed one important aspect of the 2016 “rule” they are throwing in the GOP’s face.  McConnell was clear, as an interview transcript clearly shows, that the decision was made because 2016 was not just an election year – but a presidential election year.

Additionally, there is the overlooked – or deliberately left out – reminder that before the 2010 midterms, Republicans did allow a vote for Elena Kagan.

McConnell apparently clarified  the issue for any liberals who were still confused.

Many others joined him in exposing the political play of words.
