On Tuesday, The View” co-host Joy Behar asked famed lawyer Alan Dershowitz why Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., was not in jail after he refused to give President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland a hearing in the Senate in 2016.
Behar asked Dershowitz: “Well, how come Mitch McConnell is not in jail?” The question came after Dershowitz said Senate Republicans “stole” President Trump’s first opportunity to appoint a justice to the country’s highest court.
“He wouldn’t have been my choice,” Dershowitz said of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump’s nominee. “I’m a liberal Democrat. They stole the first member of the Supreme Court. Absolute theft. Unconstitutional. I’m a little critical of President Obama, for whom I voted. He should have nominated Merrick Garland and should have sworn him in.”
Dershowitz continued: “The Constitution says advise and consent. It doesn’t say delay and postpone.”
“Well then how come Mitch McConnell is not in jail?” Joy Behar interrupted. “That’s what I want to know.”
“You want to put everybody in jail,” Dershowitz responded.
“I want to put him in jail,” Behar said.
Dershowitz had a simple answer: “I’m against putting people in jail unless they’ve actually committed crimes. I know that’s a radical position.”
Dershowitz said that Kavanaugh the best pick on Trump’s list.

These people (Behar and the like) can’t stand it that they can’t have their way. Elections are okay… but only if they win. A Supreme Court Justice is good, only if they picked them. A President is good, if they voted for them.
There is something seriously wrong with these people! We need to get them off the air, out of politics, out of government, out of journalism, etc.
They’re ignorant and bigoted. These people are the real danger to America!
