wait, are you forgetting history? It was the Democrats that triggered the nuclear option on the Judges not the GOP on Scotus. The Democrats, now living in the nightmare they created, did the little trick to just carve out Scotus in this option. However, the constitution is clear, only a majority is required to approve Judges. Now the Democrats who were warned repeatedly about doing this are seeing a conservative court appearance across the nation. Trump gets reelected in 2020 and it's over.
