Trump’s outrageous lie on Obama and judges

This is one of Trump’s worst lies.

Here’s more background on McConnell’s work to block Obama’s judicial appointments.

For anyone critical of Reid lowering the 60 vote-threshold, see this from the Politico article linked to at the top – the bolding is mine:
“Senate Democrats infuriated Republicans in November 2013 by scrapping the 60-vote filibuster rule for judicial nominations — a change Obama and then-Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) used to usher through 96 judicial nominations.

If Reid hadn’t eliminated the 60-vote rule, Trump would have even more judicial openings.
