    Hillary Clinton in this 2019 article says she "may" have expressed an opinion or two about nominating Ginsburg.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/polit...6ef_story.html

    A year later RBG dies and on Meet the Press with Chuck Todd Hillary claims that she pushed Bill to nominate her and takes the credit for RBG getting on the Supreme Court. This sort of dishonesty is why she lost the election. Now we have again have two lying major party nominees. It's disheartening.

    "That kind of dishonesty" pales in comparison to the pathological lying, grifting Russian asset we got instead.

    Taking advantage of public sympathy for someone's death to boost your own reputation with lies is pretty low too.

    I don't have a strong opinion on when the nomination should take place or which party might be right or wrong as long as things are within the intent of the law. What bothered me is the preponderance of prominent Republicans who had offered in no uncertain terms that they did not accept nomination so close to an election. And then how stories were made up to justify how things are different now. I suppose that's just politics, but it's just sad our country's leaders are not honest with the public. I would think integrity would rate higher. Deception is so common these days it's almost expected and the deceptor in chief provides an awfully poor example. What are our kids learning about leadership and success.

    If we truly wanted to make our country great again, integrity over power and gross accumulation of wealth would be an excellent start.

    I don't think they learn much history or civics in schools anymore so they'll probably get all their impressions from media, and those impressions will be one-sided.

    Yeah, all trumpers when they don’t like what is being said scream “fake news”. That is the tactic Hitler used to keep the masses swayed.

    I guess that's how a lot of conspiracy theory starts since the messages from leadership can't be trusted.

    Today's Wash Post had a short article and a video feature that showed a summary collection of the politician's earlier statements regarding the nomination and then dancing around the truth now. I suppose it's just "coincidence" that they are Republicans. https://www.washingtonpost.com/opini...s-way-forward/

    Lying politicians are not anything new, but it seems like these days we are just expecting it because it's so common, it's mostly one sided, and lead by the example of Trump who tells doozies on a daily basis.
