Has Mitch McConnell issued a statement about Breyer's replacement?

I know I know, who cares...I'm just curious for some reason what the worm has to say about this so I can have a good laugh.

1. Nothing from McConnell, but Lindsey Graham had a few tweets

I appreciate Justice Breyer’s service to our nation.

He has always been a scholar and a gentleman whose record on the Supreme Court is solidly in the liberal camp.

Justice Breyer has always shown great respect for the institution and his colleagues, and I wish him well in the next phase of his life.

As to his replacement: If all Democrats hang together – which I expect they will – they have the power to replace Justice Breyer in 2022 without one Republican vote in support.

Elections have consequences, and that is most evident when it comes to fulfilling vacancies on the Supreme Court.

3. No.

That's his statement. "No."

He should have it tattooed on his forehead so he doesn't have to talk anymore.

4. Give it time

We'll soon be hearing about "far left agendas" and "activist judges" and "not listening to what the people want"

5. Also, how 3/4s of a Presidency isn't enough time before the election to seat a Justice.

(for Democrats, will remain unsaid.)
