Democrat Sen. Mazie Hirono was on CNN today and helped prove that the Merrick Garland talking points have been re-sent for the latest political battle over the open SCOTUS seat, and the word of the day is “steal”:
Sen. @maziehirono dodges on whether Democrats would try moving a SCOTUS nominee were the roles reversed: “That’s what they’re doing — [trying to] steal another Supreme Court seat.” pic.twitter.com/GCyU4abgt1

You’ll also notice there was zero pushback from Anderson Cooper, but maybe he’s still tired after teeing up so many softballs for Joe Biden the other night.
How is it stealing? That’s the process, right?

Doing their job isn’t stealing. The democrats are incapable of accepting defeat it’s so embarrassing. https://t.co/f6L9dspl6N

A Republican president sending a Supreme Court nomination to the Republican-controlled Senate to fill an open SCOTUS seat is “stealing” to Hirono and the Dems. Do they think they own the spot?
In fairness to @maziehirono, she’s so dumb she may not understand the Senate’s role in the confirmation process. https://t.co/iJakyo5x3a
