Chris Matthews: Senate Democrats Should Reject Gorsuch, ‘It’s Not His Turn, It’s Merrick Garland’s’

Chris Matthews ended his show tonight by saying Senate Democrats need to fight Neil Gorsuch‘s Supreme Court nomination because “it’s not this guy’s turn.”

As far as he’s concerned, Republicans and President Trump should not be allowed to “exploit the vacancy Mitch McConnell created” in not giving Merrick Garland a hearing last year.

Matthews said Trump shouldn’t get to “stuff his nominee through the hoop,” calling on Democrats to vote “nay,” “demand the 60 votes, and don’t give them to Trump.”
