What I watched Tom Nichols aka “@RadioFreeTom” on Twitter tell MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” panel today regarding judicial nominations – especially Supreme Court nominations – was not the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard, but it easily ranks in the top 10.

Nichols, a prominent Never Trumper who (like the rest) is sorely lacking in the self-awareness department, was discussing the battle over who President Trump would nominate to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who passed away on Friday after battling pancreatic cancer. More specifically, Nichols was opining on alleged Republican flip floppery on whether or not there should even be a nomination submitted and considered in a presidential election year.

After lecturing, without evidence, for about a minute or so about how most Republicans in Washington, DC supposedly are all about judicial activism and power and doing things “because they can” these days, Nichols – an advocate for destroying the Republican party in order to save it – suggested that though President Trump had a Constitutional right to present a nominee to the Senate for consideration, that Senate Republicans should operate on the “norms” system it allegedly normally does instead on this issue because muh principles or something:

A diehard Never Trumper like Nichols lecturing anyone about “principles” did not go over well at all with people who are all too familiar with the notoriously disingenuous tactics of NeverTrump’s more out-front movers and shakers:

What Form4li7y said.

Besides – when should “norms” ever trump written law?
