Sunday night, John Oliver Back from a short Emmys break to the Last week tonight Office.
And the Emmy award winner His speech began by addressing news of President Trump’s nomination, Amy Connie Barrett, to replace the late great Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court. Barrett, a student of late Judge Antonin Scalia, is an anti-gay, bisexual, transgender and reproductive rights advocate and anti-immigration campaigner. She belongs to a marginal, charismatic Christian sect called People of Praise, which believes that women are second-class citizens of a man and the highest they can reach within the group is the level of feminists, which until recently they called “the servant.”
Trump is about to replace a liberal symbol with a sign until far away The conservative justice that female was called Antonin Scalia, and she can serve for a long time, “Oliver explained.” Amy Connie Barrett is only 48, and I know I make 43 look like 76, but trust me, that’s it. young man To spend the Supreme Court. “
“If Barrett was confirmed to the Supreme Court, and for sure when, the effect could be dire,” the HBO host continued. “In recent years, major issues have been decided with only one voice – from support for the Affordable Care Act, to the preservation of DACA, to the repeal of the incredibly restrictive abortion law. If these cases go to court again, they can now easily go the other way. It is clear that there is no point in clinging to the hope that the Conservatives will choose to respect the precedents they set by refusing to consider Merrick Garland even in an election year, because that was always in bad faith, as was evident at the time.
Then comedian spoke to Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) at a closed-door meeting on October 29, 2016, saying, “If Hillary Clinton becomes president, I’ll do everything I can to make sure four years from now, we still have an opening in the Supreme Court. “.
Oliver’s offer, “This is a Republican senator who admits to obstructing the assertion of justice not only in an election year, but for a full presidential term.”
Senator Mitt Romney (Republican from Utah) has justifications for why he supports Trump’s candidate Barrett.
“I realize that we may have a court more conservative than it has been over the past few decades, but my liberal friends, for many decades, have become very accustomed to a liberal court, and this is not written in Romney.” It is also appropriate for a country that is, If you will, center-right, have a court that reflects center-right views. ”
“What the hell are you talking about dead ?!” Oliver shouted. “Let’s put aside the idea that the court that abolished the Voting Rights Act is a” liberal court, “since when is this nation naturally the right of center?
For the record, more Americans (47%) say they are more aligned with the Democratic Party than Republicans (42%). In addition, poll after poll showed that Americans prefer abortion rights, with support from Ru vs. wade Reaching record levels, while the vast majority of the public also supports Medicare for all. Oh, and by the way, the vast majority (59 percent) say the winner of this presidential election should be whoever picks Ginsburg’s successor. ”
Oliver concluded, “So, our country is not so much the right in the center as Mitt Romney was wrong in the middle,” adding, “Look, this week has been very dark for a lot of people. The Supreme Court is about to head to the right in the foreseeable future, and if things look Hopeless right now, it is because, quite frankly, they are. “
