‘Most Pathetic’: Dems Boycott Trump Nominee Hearings

Orrin Hatch

Senate Democrats on Tuesday boycotted a critical markup of President Donald Trump’s nominations to lead the Treasury and Health and Human Services departments, leaving a senior GOP leader aghast and saying there is “no excuse” for “this type of crap.”

Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch, Utah Republican, and fellow GOP members said it was unprecedented and “shocking” for Democrats to skip the planned roll calls on Steve Mnuchin for Treasury and Rep. Tom Price at HHS.

Republicans were hoping to advance each of the nominees to the full Senate, so they could be confirmed by the GOP majority and fill out Mr. Trump’s Cabinet.

Yet Democrats said both picks didn’t give straight answers during the vetting process, so they opted to delay.

Mr. Hatch said the boycott, which denied the panel the quorum needed to proceed, showed an alarming degree of disrespect for the nominees.

    What a joke. Hatch has been acting like a democrat for decades. He belongs to the same club as McCain, Lindsey Graham, Susan Collins and on and on. Now, all of a sudden he is outraged? Nothing worse in politics than a Rino.

    Simple – The Dems should treat the Republicons exactly like Bitch McConnell and the right-wing nuts treated Obama. NO DIFFERENT! Matter of fact, they should treat the Repubs worse if possible! Then let the Republicons commit political suicide. You gotta love it!!!

    If they continue their childish tirades, they will be his with an innovation they developed which Republicans have never used….but pushed too hard, the Republicans with President Trump will hit the leftists with their own “nuclear option.” Under that tactic, no Democrat participation will be required, the Republicans will vote in force with the “nuclear action.” (By the way, the NR’ was developed by former Democrat Senate leader, Harry Reid) If the Leftists think the Nuclear Option won’t be used, they will see reality come quite soon

      Beware what you wish for and pass Mr. Reid.

        My wish is for the Democrats to get over being beaten and to act like men and participate in the legitimate business of governance. The nation must move on. The Leftists raised hell when it was convenient to them, their President sneered “Elections have consequences” then he boasted “I won.”
        Well, “turnabout is fair play” as a matter of fact, in this case it’s poetic justice.

    In my opinion, which is of course perfect, I think Trump should simply appoint all his cabinet picks as acting whatever they are supposed to be and then they could begin their jobs whether the dumbocrats like it or not. I don’t know if that is legal or not, but it sounds good to me.

    So now the Democrats are adopting Republican tactics from the years 2009-2017. “Most pathetic”?

    Crybaby Dems are dissing President Trump’s Immigration Order on CSPAN, saying that every day President Trump is making a new order that will turn this country upside down.

    Where were all these Democrats when Obama was making all these unconstitution pen & phone laws?
