Today’s Orrin Hatch Award For Lack of Self-Awareness


Obama Supreme Court

Goes to Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah):

Orrin Hatch charged Democrats with acting “like idiots” on Tuesday as they boycotted a Senate Finance Committee hearing in order to block a vote on two of President Donald Trump’s Cabinet nominees.

“I think they ought to stop posturing, and acting like idiots,” Hatch told reporters after the committee’s Democrats skipped a vote to push the nominees to the full Senate, a move that denied a quorum required to proceed.

“I’m really tired of this type of crap,” Hatch said as Republican senators sat down Tuesday morning only to be greeted by an empty Democrat side of the room. “I mean, my goodness, there’s no excuse for it.”

Tonight, Donald Trump will nominate someone to fill a Supreme Court seat that has been vacant for nearly a full year.
