CNN’s Jake Tapper takes Biden’s deputy campaign manager to task on Biden’s accusation that filling a judicial vacancy is “unconstitutional”…NOT true.
Tapper called out Biden: “He said what the GOP is doing is not Constitutional. How is it not constitutional what they’re doing constitutional?”
Bedingfield replied: “His point is that the people have the opportunity to weigh in on this constitutional process through their vote. And we are now in the midst of the election. Millions of people have already cast their votes. And you see that the vast majority of people say they want the person who wins the election on November 3rd to nominate the justice.”
“That’s not what the word constitutional means. It doesn’t mean I like it or don’t like it. It means it’s according to the US Constitution.”
BRUTAL. Tapper takes Biden's deputy campaign manager to task on Biden's accusation that filling a judicial vacancy is 'unconstitutional'

Once in a while, CNN pushes back on Democrats. Tapper is right. President Trump has the authority to nominate a Supreme Court Justice anytime during his four years as president.
