MSNBC’s Chris Matthews is Fired Up Over SCOTUS: This is Time to Fight!

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews is fired up over the departure of Justice Anthony Kennedy. 

Speaking at the start of his show on Wednesday, he announced it is time for Democrats to play “Hardball.”

“There are times to fight and this is one of them,” he said.

He continued on: “If the Democrats in the U.S. Senate allow President Trump to pack the Supreme Court with a 5-4 majority for the next 30 years, it’s not something the Progressive Democratic voter will soon forget. Two years ago, Republican majority leader Mitch McConnell mocked the Democrats by refusing to even meet with President Obama’s court nominee. In 2018 with just a handful of months before Election Day, one that will decide which party controls the Senate, Democrats owe it to their party, the principle and their own survival to do to Mitch what Mitch did to them. ”

He then warned, “If the Democrats fail to stop him, there will be, I predict, a full-scale rebellion against the leaders.”

His comments echoed similar comments he made earlier in the day when a fired up Wallace warned about the impact on abortion law and warning that there would be “hell to pay” if Democrats don’t take action.
