Radical left activist Michael Moore suggested on his podcast Sunday that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) shut down the government if that’s what it takes to keep the Senate from confirming a President Donald Trump Supreme Court nominee before the election.
“Shut the whole damn thing down. Shut the government down, so they do not have the funds to try to ram through this person they want to get on the Supreme Court before Trump’s gone,” Moore said.
Currently, Trump has not yet named a nominee, so there is no specific “person” to which Moore is referring at this point.
“I know, some people won’t like this,” Moore ended the rant, “but we’re all going to have to sacrifice here, a little bit, for a week or two — or whatever it is — to make sure that the Republicans… cannot do the job that they’re going to try to do, to not pull off another one of their crimes.”
It is actually not a crime to nominate or vote to confirm a Supreme Court vacancy, but it is a crime to obstruct the government and to make threats like Moore and other Democrat activists have been doing.
