Appointing a justice to the Supreme Court of the United States of America requires giving time and thoughtful consideration to a search for the best and brightest mind to fill this role now that we have lost one of the finest — Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She may have been small in stature, but she was a judicial giant. 

Instead, we have a president who is all about flapping his wings like a hungry vulture at the prospect of naming another justice to the highest court in our land.

The process of selecting a SCOTUS candidate doesn't start the day a Justice dies. It starts long before, so your point of it being rushed is based on bad judgment. At any given time by any president is a solid list of possible candidates. Your seated President is following the Constitution. You know it. Everyone else knows it. If the shoe were on the other foot, you would be writing in favor of the seated Democratic president to "do the right thing" and get it over with. You know it and we know it. Waiting to put off the selection until after the election is... silly because it will be the same president we have right now. You know it and we know it. Orangeman good. Strap in for the pleasant ride and enjoy the benefit of a president who is making America greater than ever before. You know it and we know it.
