Fonda spoke on “Real Time with Bill Maher” after the news broke that Ginsburg had died at the age of 87 after a long battle with cancer.
As a political war erupted over Ginsburg’s replacement, Fonda pleaded with the left to seize the fort following the bitter 2016 war to replace Judge Antonin Scalia after his sudden death.
“I’m still hesitant, Bill,” Fonda host Bill Phill said. “I heard that Ruth Bader Ginsburg is dead. We must be as tough as Mitch McConnell and not allow them to do a tricky thing until the election results come out. That is, we must not get up and allow them to do that. — s and ovaries can grow. “
McCann was nominated by then-President Obama’s Scotus Merrick Garland in 2016 for the “Biden Rule” – the failure of the then senator to confirm judges in an election year in 1992, especially when controlled by the Senate opposition. In a statement Friday evening, the Senate Majority Leader announced his intention to continue the confirmation process, just weeks before the November election.
During the “Real Time” panel discussion, The Dispatch writer-great Tim Miller predicted that the battle over Ginsburg’s vacant seat would get “really, really ugly” and McConnell would “jam” the candidate.
This was a very bad situation for Miller before he predicted that President Trump would choose Circuit Court Judge Amy Connie Barrett as his candidate.
After praising Ginsburg as “awesome”, Maher expressed his concern about the power of Trump still to be president.
“As I’ve said before on this show, power gets powers,” Maker said. “That’s why you can’t allow someone like Trump to be president – because it’s not just for the presidency.”
