Wednesday on CNN’s “Wolf,” while discussing President Barack Obama’s nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court left by the late Justice Antonin Scalia, Democratic National Committee chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) said Americans do not want Republican front-runner Donald Trump, who she said was “un-american, dangerous, vulgar,” picking the Supreme Court nominee.
Wasserman Schultz said, “The opening on the Supreme Court makes the stakes of the outcome for this election even more significant. You know, we’re going to make sure that Americans are — ask themselves the question — ‘do I really want Donald Trump nominating the next Supreme Court justice?’ That is going to be hung around the neck of every Republican candidate around the country. You know, we’re happy to hear them say, yes, that’s what they want, because this is the most extreme divisive un-American, dangerous, vulgar Republican candidate for president that has certainly been nominated certainly in modern times. You know, when you have a candidate that espouses torture, that has proposed unconstitutional policies, you know, that’s who we want to place in the hands the balance the Supreme Court? I think Americans will reject his candidacy based just on this.”
