On a day where many are still trying to get through the entire Supreme Court decision on the Affordable Care Act before the House of Representatives voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt, some Republicans are not exactly happy with the decision to act on the latter. Joe Scarborough particularly appeared incensed about it this evening, alluding to the combination of the Supreme Court and the vote as making the Republicans look especially bad.
“The political timing of the Eric Holder contempt vote could not be worse. It makes the House GOP look petty and partisan,” he tweeted today:
While many of those reacting to the vote– as opposed to the Supreme Court decision– are likely to disagree, it appears Scarborough is referring to the loss in the Supreme Court, which, on the same day as something like this, could look vindictive.
