PoliticKING Video: Larry Flynt Denounces Scalia’s ‘Damaging’ Supreme Court Legacy
On RT America’s February 15th episode of “PoliticKING”, Larry Flynt sat down with television host Larry King to discuss the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s “damaging” legacy.
Scalia passed away on February 12/13th, 2016, at the age of 79. Appointed to the Supreme Court by Ronald Reagan in 1982, he served there as a justice for close to thirty years. Of Scalia’s death, Mr. Flynt said, “It couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.”
Of course, his politics were a different beast—and the implications of his death have spurred further controversy for the Court. Just half an hour after the news broke, Republican majority leader Mitch McConnell urged conservatives to block Obama’s rightful appointment of a new justice, arguing that it should be the next president who chooses. Meanwhile, Democrats contended that such a delay would be unconstitutional. With less than a year left in Obama’s term, the debate is unlikely to end soon.
