McCarthy Blasts Democrats: They Would Have Protested Any Trump Nominee for SCOTUS

"I don't understand [how] the American public would get excited about voting for Democrats, what have they stood for? They're just against everything."

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) blasted Democrats for opposing President Trump’s Supreme Court pick before Trump even nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh during an interview with “Fox and Friends” on Tuesday.

Fox News’ Pete Hegseth asked McCarthy what he thought about the nomination of Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

“It’s exactly what you’d expect from President Trump,” McCarthy said. “He’s keeping his promise. Here is a judge who’s qualified, who’s not an activist judge, he bases it on the Constitution, and I think it’s another smart decision by President Trump.”

McCarthy then explained how he found it ironic that Democrats were out protesting Kavanaugh “without even giving him the opportunity to know where he stands and what his work is.’

Fox News’ Ainsley Earhardt followed up by asking McCarthy what he thought about Democrats’ strategy to resist Trump and Republicans at every turn.

“I just want to see the van where they had the signs of all four proposed judges, so which one they pick from, to just walk out and have the press conference against. They don’t even give an opportunity,” McCarthy said.

McCarthy added that nobody who looked at Kavanaugh’s record could argue he’s not qualified.

“I think it would be responsible on the Democratic side to sit back and meet with Kavanaugh before you propose or take an action against him,” McCarthy said.

Fox News’ Ed Henry asked if the Democratic Party’s obstruction of Kavanaugh’s nomination is something Republicans want to run on in November.

McCarthy blasted Democrats for voting against the Republican tax reform bill and proposing to abolish ICE.

“I don’t understand [how] the American public would get excited about voting for Democrats, what have they stood for? They’re just against everything,” McCarthy said.
