Frank Rich has a sense of humor


By Frank Rich

In the case of Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, it’s a no-brainer: It is not hyperbole to say that the Republican Senate majority stole a Supreme Court appointment from President Obama on the spurious grounds that he only had a year left in his presidency when Scalia died.

The Democrats can argue no less spuriously that a president who lost the popular vote lacks the standing to fill that same seat.

Of course, it is exactly hyperbole, but still.

And didn't he mean no more spuriously?

Well, maybe not.
