Samantha Bee: Obama Is Not a 'Lame Duck' (Yet), Can Make SCOTUS Pick

Full Frontal‘s Samantha Bee would like to clarify what does and does not constitute a lame duck period as the Senate opts not to vote on President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court pick Merrick Garland.

Just as she did with the fictional Strom Thurmond “rule,” Bee eviscerates those claiming that an alleged Joe Biden clause is now preventing a vote on the nomination during the sitting Commander-in-Chief’s last year in office.

As clearly stated by the current VP, it is his belief that the Senate should not vote on a justice’s appointment until after the election, when a president’s lame duck period officially begins. He does not at any point state that a decision should not be made prior to the inauguration of the next president-elect, or that the current president should not nominate a judicial leader.
