Justin Amash Supports Nancy Pelosi’s Rule-Breaking to Call President Trump ‘Racist’ on House Floor

Amash once again shows he is a tool of the far-left Democrats.

It was ruled today by the House that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) violated the chamber’s rules when she referred to President Donald Trump as a “racist” on the House floor.

The House voted to keep her words in the record despite her violation by a vote of 231-190, and also allowed Pelosi to keep debating on the House floor.

“Every single member of this institution, Democratic and Republican, should join us in condemning the president’s racist tweets,” Pelosi said in violation of the rules.

“To do anything less would be a shocking rejection of our values and a shameful abdication of our oath of office to protect the American people,” she added.

The rules, which go back to the days of founding father Thomas Jefferson and his writings, ban House members from using language that is “personally offensive” to the President, although they are permitted to criticize him in an official capacity.

“As such, remarks may not refer to the President as a racist, having made ‘racial slurs’ or ‘racial epithets’” the Jefferson’s Manual states.

Rep. Justin Amash (I-MI), usually a stickler for rules and procedure, voted to let Pelosi slide on her rule-breaking behavior.

The liberal media is singing Amash’s praises for once again doing the bidding of the Democrats:

Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) was forced to announce that Pelosi had violated House rules in her rant against President Trump’s alleged racism.

“The words used by the gentlewoman from California contained an accusation of racist behavior on the part of the President,” Hoyer said. “The words should not be used in debate.”

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) took Pelosi to task for her lack of professionalism in breaking the rules.

“What we just saw was a very sad day in this House — probably a historic day, so the very person who is supposed to uphold the rules broke the rules of the House,” he said to reporters.

“Are they going to treat her different? You couldn’t even find a Democrat to stay in the chair to read what the parliamentarian decision is,” he added. “Decorum matters. The rules matter.”

House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-NC) was also appalled by Pelosi’s outrageous behavior, as the Democrats become more unhinged in the age of Trump.

“Regardless of what the rules say, it appears political statements will rule the day,” Meadows said to reporters.

“We would be well served as an institution to not become like some of our allies’ parliament debate — have a more civil discord,” he added.

Pelosi was unrepentant about her rule breaking and takes no responsibility for her actions.

“I’m proud of the attention that is being called to it because what the president said was completely inappropriate against our colleagues, but not just against them, but against so many people in our country to say ‘Go back where you came from,’” she said.

President Trump is making the Democrats show their true colors, and it is not pretty. The House voted affirmatively tonight on a resolution condemning Trump over patriotic tweets he made over the weekend against socialist Democrats.

FLASHBACK: Three Recent Supreme Court Justices Were Confirmed Within 45 Days

There’s ample precedent for a quick confirmation.

Published

on

There are 45 days until the November 3rd presidential election, and there’s ample precedent for an expedited confirmation of a Supreme Court Justice in such a timeframe following a vacancy.

Ruth Bader Ginsberg died on Friday, setting up a possible contentious confirmation process to fill her seat. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is pledging that a tentative Trump administration nominee for the position will receive a vote on the Senate floor, despite outrage and indignation on the part of progressives falsely maintaining that McConnell is breaking precedent he set by refusing to confirm Merrick Garland. President Obama tried to get Garland confirmed when the opposing party controlled the Senate, a divided government that does not exist in 2020.

Ruth Bader Ginsberg herself was formally nominated by President Clinton on June 22nd, 1993. Her confirmation process began on July 20th, and she was confirmed on August 3rd, with a total of 42 days elapsing between her nomination and confirmation.

John Paul Stevens’ nomination was advanced and confirmed in a speedy 19 days, and Sandra Day O’Connor was confirmed in 1981 in a total of 33 days.

In fact, every single Supreme Court nomination of the past 45 years was nominated and voted upon within a shorter duration of the time remaining in Donald Trump’s first presidential term.

There’s actually wide precedent for nominating and confirming a Supreme Court justice within the confines of President Trump’s first term, and Democrats are being untruthful or erroneous to suggest otherwise.

McConnell is beginning initial work to advance confirmation hearings, with potential liberal Republicans such as Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, and Lisa Murkowski presenting themselves as possible holdouts. It is possible to approve a judge with 50 votes in the Senate and a Vice Presidential tiebreaker.
