"Fox News hosts Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and Dana Perino are all on the record saying that the U.S. Senate should not move a Supreme Court nomination during an election year.
Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a champion of justice, a legal giant, and a pioneering feminist icon, passed away on Friday night after a long battle with cancer. Right-wing media figures instantly began pushing for President Donald Trump to name her successor.
But after Justice Antonin Scalia passed away in February 2016, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blockaded President Barack Obama’s nominee, Merrick Garland, refusing to even grant him a hearing. “The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice,” he said in a statement following the news of Scalia’s death. “Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president.”"
