According to The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur, Hillary Clinton shouldn’t make good on her musings of appointing Barrack Obama to the Supreme Court because the president is not “a real progressive.”
Uygur joined a panel invoking their own version of the Supreme Court on TYT, to discuss the ramifications of a Clinton-appointed Obama to the Supreme Court if she ultimately won the general election.
Clinton was asked by an audience member during a town hall event on Tuesday if should would consider making such a move. Clinton’s eerily emphatic support aside, the idea of the president joining the Supreme Court does not seem as far-fetched.
In the video, Uygur voted against a “ Justice Obama” bringing up the unconstitutional wiretapping by the NSA while under his watch. However, Jimmy Dore, another member of the panel, was in favor of the idea.
“When he doesn’t have to govern, I think he’d be more liberal like most people,” Dore said.
The panel finally agreed that Obama’s “true self” will likely shine through as a Chief Justice and he would act like “executive order writing Obama in getting things done.”
