If I remember correctly, somewhere way back when, corporations were given special treatment so they would not be subject to the same standards as individuals.

Maybe he'll nominate Sarah Palin...

Excellent!  She can shoot SCOTUS plaintiffs from a helicopter ;-)

I doubt that "Corporations are people" was part of the courts dissenting opinions.  That is a bullshit claim based on semantics and now treated as a sacred rule of law.

Citizens United the worst SCOTUS decision since Dred Scott ;-(  Defund SCOTUS, not the cops!

The Republicans have been stacking the courts on every level and this is a huge opportunity that could protect their interests for decades. For example, any single-payer healthcare plan Congress passes will be declared unconstitutional. People focus on abortion but the ability to block legislation to regulate business is what this is really about. $$$

Remember, corportations are people.

While Dems play gotcha politics with MSM collusion, they ignore all the judges appointed to lower courts.  Incompetence?

TPP etc being promoted by Obama et al, was going to enshrine that in international law  You would have to go to an international arbitration panel loaded with pro business people, to sue a corporation.

Better she died now than in December after Biden wins the election. In that scenario she was killed by the libruls so they could put a communist in her seat.

This may be the break Trump needs.  If they wait until after the election, even reluctant Republicans will vote for Trump, because another redneck on the Supreme Court would further their agenda far more than another 4 years of Bozo.  Biden's lead in the polls is mostly because he is not Trump, not because of his greatness or his agenda.  Republicans have been thirsting for an all right wing Court for years.  Another 4 years of an idiot, not so much.  But this issue is the one that can energize the Republican Party.  The rest of the issues are only losing battles where Trump fails.
Actually, a poll done before RBG's death shows that Democrats are now more driven by SCOTUS issues than Republicans are, and that Biden polls better on the question of who should be putting people on the court.

Obama submitted a SCOTUS candidate, and lost.  As he did on some, but not all domestic initiatives.  Pre-2017 Trump was no different from you.

Real history, about early SCOTUS conflicts, and when there were more than 9 or less than 9 SCOTUS members.

"Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in 2016 said “nothing in the Constitution” prevents a president from nominating to fill a court seat."

"TRUMP HAS SECURED ALL VOTES TO CONFIRM NEW JUDGE, DEMOCRATS PANIC, THREATEN MASSIVE BACKLASH" ... the Dems so upset, they are going to stop with the MJ and bring out their stash of Hash ;-)

"Romney Agrees To Back Trump On Supreme Court Pick; McConnell Now Has Votes To Replace RBG" ... Dems trusted a turncoat?

I was hoping this would wait, but we all knew this was coming.

Any hypocrisy on display will be McConnell, not Trump.  Obama nominated as he was going out, McConnell blocked it.  Trump can nominate it as he is maybe going out, where his nomination goes depends on McConnell.

Yes, Trump doesn't run the Senate.  Obama didn't run the Senate either.  You expect consistency from politicians?

it's all on McConnell and the right wing Senators.

And fuck Trump, too, it's on him as well. He doesn't have to nominate.

Fuck all of them. Fuck them in the neck.

Amend the Constitution to remove the Senate entirely?  Hypocrisy goes with being a pubic servant ;-)
