Gowdy Slams Biden – If You Don’t Want Trump Picking Supreme Court Justices, Win an Election

Trey Gowdy responded to Joe Biden and Democrats upset about President Trump selecting a nominee to the Supreme Court by saying “win an election.”

Gowdy, in an interview with “Fox & Friends,” was responding to suggestions that the replacement for Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat should be nominated after the election.

“If I win this election,” Biden said, “President Trump’s nominee should be withdrawn and, as the new president, I should be the one to nominate Justice Ginsburg’s successor.”

Gowdy disagrees.

“If you don’t like who the Supreme Court nominees are, then win an election,” he told Democrats. “You should have won in 2016.”

The former South Carolina congressman explained that Trump’s Constitutional duty to nominate a replacement extends through his entire term as President.

“The reality is presidents are presidents for four years,” Gowdy explained.

“You don’t have a sliding scale of diminished power the closer you get to someone else’s inauguration,” he added. “This is President Trump’s pick and he’s entitled to a vote.”


Gowdy, Biden, and the Supreme Court

Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s own words from 2016 seem to support Gowdy’s contention that a President’s power lasts throughout his term.

“The president is elected for four years not three years, so the power he has in year three continues into year four,” she said to a group of law students at Georgetown University.

That said, according to NPR, Ginsburg dictated a statement to her granddaughter, Clara Spera.

“My most fervent wish is that I will not be replaced until a new president is installed,” she reportedly said.


Elections Have Consequences

Gowdy’s statement is reminiscent of one made by Barack Obama, who once famously declared, “Elections have consequences, and at the end of the day, I won.”

Obama made that remark to then-House Republican Whip Eric Cantor, in 2009.

He followed that up in 2013 by arguing that if one party doesn’t like what a President does, there is a solution.

“You don’t like a particular policy or a particular president? Then argue for your position. Go out there and win an election,” Obama stated. “Push to change it. But don’t break it.”


President Trump concurred in comments made on the South Lawn of the White House just days ago.

“We have an obligation. We won. And we have an obligation, as the winners, to pick who we want,” he told reporters. “That’s not the next President.”

“Hopefully, I’ll be the next President. But we’re here now … We have an obligation to the voters, all of the people — the millions of people that put us here in the form of a victory,” he continued.
