Left-wing activist Al Sharpton implored Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to give Republican’s “the big payback” when it comes to President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Neil Gorsuch.
On Wednesday’s Tom Joyner Morning Show, Sharpton said Sen. Schumer should blast out “The Big Payback” song at the Senate for refusing to give former Supreme Court nominee Judge Merrick Garland a hearing.
Below is the transcript of what Al Sharpton had to say on the morning show:
“As I watched last night…, President Trump nominate Judge Gorsuch be in the Supreme Court — first of all, let’s be clear…, Gorsuch has a very conservative, go by the Founding Fathers, kind of interpretation of how you deal with Constitutional law, and would sit on that court and would rule in a way that would be against the interests of those of us that clearly, when the Founding Fathers wrote the Constitution, were not considered full human beings and full citizens.
“So when you deal with the mentality and the legal profile of Judge Gorsuch, it is not a good one. Bu,t even beyond that, let us not forget he is not sitting, and being nominated to sit in Scalia’s seat [is] he’s being nominated to sit in Garland’s seat. President Barack Obama nominated Judge Garland, who has got as much, or more, qualifications as this nominee to have been the Supreme Court judge.
“Nominated him almost a year ago, Febuary of ’16, when Scalia died.” They stalled, they filibustered, they would not even give a hearing to Judge Garland. It is time for the Democrats now to say, ‘Since you changed the rules, you’re going to have to live by the rules you applied to President Obama’s nominee; and we are not going to allow you to change it, and we will use those rules to block this nominee, Gorsuch.’
“The Bible says that you sow that — that same thing shall you also reap. But Bill Bellamy had a better idea. They should come in the Senate and replay ‘The Big Payback,’ James Brown’s song. Bill was right, just take one of them old blasters, Chuck Schumer, and blast out ‘The Big Payback.’ You took my judge. That ain’t right. Wouldn’t give a hearing. You know that I’m tight — the big payback.”
