Watch Samantha Bee take on obstructionist Senate Republicans in the latest episode of Full Frontal with Samantha Bee.
We’ve talked a lot about GOP obstructionism of President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland. And we’ve highlighted polls that show American voters clearly want their senators to do their Constitutional duty or risk losing their jobs in the fall.
Samantha Bee dedicated a portion of her show Monday evening to Republican antics:
Support for a hearing has remained consistently strong: a CNN poll found that two thirds of respondents want the Senate to hold a hearing on Garland. And several vulnerable Senate Republicans, including Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH), Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH), Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA), Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI), Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC), and even Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), are facing pressure from voters who are less likely to vote for them if they fail to hold hearings.
Republicans have a big problem on their hands.
