Marc Short, chief of staff to Vice President Mike Pence, on Sunday rejected that it’s hypocrisy for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to support the nomination by President Donald Trump of a Supreme Court justice to succeed the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

In an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Short said Trump is ready to make his pick “very soon.”

“I reject the notion as hypocrisy,” he said. “Historical precedent is when your party's in power, and consistently going back to George Washington, the party has continued to confirm those nominees. … the people in America elected Donald Trump in 2016 because he was so transparent and said here's who I would nominate.”

“I think the American people wanted Donald Trump to be in a position to make these nominations, and it's his obligation to do so,” Short asserted.

“When you have a party in power in the Senate, whose job it is to advise and consent and confirm the president's nominee, it continually has shown historically that that is the job of the president,” Short added. “And history shows it's the president's obligation to make a nomination.”
