Senate Republicans now say that GOP members of the Judiciary Committee—whose job is to consider the president's judicial nominees—will not consider any Supreme Court nominee that President Obama makes before his term is over. In other news:
- Obama proposed a plan for closing the Guantánamo Bay prison that Congress would have to approve. They won't. And Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio are already claiming with no evidence that Obama wants to give the entire Guantánamo base back to Cuba.
- John Kasich's mild Kasich-mentum may soon be halted.
- Despite the network's previous feuds with Donald Trump, Sean Hannity gave Trump the softballiest of softball interviews on Fox News last night.
- And Spike Lee endorsed "Bernie from Brooklyn."
