Clinton: GOP's Supreme Court push is hypocritical

Former United States President Bill Clinton claimed on Sunday that it is "superficially hypocritical" for the Trump administration to push and fill the Supreme Court's vacancy spot before the November elections.

"Well, of course, it's superficially hypocritical call, isn't it? I mean, (Senate Majority Leader) Mitch McConnell wouldn't give President (Barack) Obama's nominee, Merrick Garland, a hearing ten months before the presidential election," Clinton told CNN.

The spot appeared after Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died of pancreatic cancer at the age of 87. The decision on who will join the Supreme Court could affect the upcoming presidential elections, analysts say.
