Republicans set the precedent."

2. His Yuuuge rally in Fla is by his 2020 campaign...

Since it's campaign season, obviously we can't seat a new SC justice until the people have made their will clear.

Hey, their rules!

3. You don't even have to go that far...

the McConnell rule is that no SCOTUS nominee may be appointed while there is an election cycle going on. Trump has already announced and filed his paperwork for the 2020 election, so by their own rules, the GOP cannot allow any SCOTUS to fill the vacancy!

and his appointment might even be worse, especially with regard to rights of women to control their bodies, and just general rights of people to determine their sex lives.
