Hugh Hewitt teaches libs why ‘lame ducks don’t get to make life-time appointments’

Conservative talk radio host Hugh Hewitt was only too happy to instruct others on constitutional law as well as offer some historic perspective on Supreme Court appointments during a president’s last year in office.

Hewitt indicated that lame duck presidents don’t have the luxury of making lifetime appointments.

This was followed in short order by a misstatement of the Constitution advanced by University of Chicago economics Professor Austan Goolsbee who tweeted:

The radio host explained further:

Author and MSNBC host Joy Reid brought up President Ronald Reagan’s nomination of Justice Anthony Kennedy — who was confirmed by a Democratic Senate in Reagan’s last year in office in 1988.

Time for the history lesson.

Incidentally, Sen. Pat Leahy, D-Vt., had a lapse of memory during his Sunday appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

He also (wrongfully) claimed Kennedy was appointed in 1988.
