Elizabeth Warren Peddles False Merrick Garland Talking Points on 'The View'

After recent dismal fundraising and polling numbers were released, and with Iowa Caucuses on the horizon, presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren’s campaign desperately needs momentum. In true Warren fashion, the Democratic contender pushed a false narrative in order to distract from her non-existent authenticity. 


While a guest on "The View," Warren ranted about how Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell stole a Supreme Court seat from Judge Merrick Garland, who was appointed to the late Justice Antonin Scalia’s seat in 2016. Nearly four years later, Democrats are still harping on a blatantly false narrative.

Former President Obama nominated Judge Merrick Garland, of the DC Circuit Court of Appeals, to fill the seat vacated by Justice Scalia in March of 2016, ahead of a general election year. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell took one of the boldest political risks in modern history by not holding hearings on Judge Garland, thus not filling the vacancy. McConnell had hoped that Hillary Clinton would not take the White House and that President Trump would nominate a conservative jurist to the high court. Indeed, that risk paid off. 

Aside from the abundance of precedent to back McConnell’s move, it was Democratic leadership who changed the Senate rules to allow for McConnell to not fill the vacancy. In 2013, former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) invoked the nuclear option to destroy the filibuster option in the Senate. 


Leader McConnell’s move was not unconstitutional by any reasonable measure, as Warren claims it to be, echoed by liberal hosts Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin. The presidential hopeful likely knows that McConnell was well within his power as Majority Leader to do so, but it is certainly easier to rattle off false talking points about her Republican colleagues, rather than answering questions about the very policy positions she embraces. 

It appears unlikely that the senator from Massachusetts will win in Iowa, even after her brief uptick in national polling. In this time of desperation, Senator Warren is resorting to what she knows best: lying for the sake of political support.
