Will Obama Become A Supreme Court Justice


>>WHOEVER IT IS THAT BECOMES
PRESIDENT NEXT IS LIKELY GOING TO NOMINATE AT LEAST ONE SUPREME
COURT JUSTICE, POSSIBLY EVEN MORE THAN THAT. HILLARY CLINTON
OBVIOUSLY THINKS SHE HAS A GOOD SHOT AT BECOMING PRESIDENT, AND
A PERSON AT ONE OF HER CAMPAIGN EVENTS HAS A NOVEL IDEA ABOUT
WHO SHE SHOULD NOMINATE, WERE SHE TO HAVE THAT CHANCE.>>THE NEXT PRESIDENT WILL
PROBABLY APPOINT SEVERAL MEMBERS OF THE SUPREME COURT. WOULD YOU
CONSIDER APPOINTING OBAMA?>>WOW. WHAT A GREAT IDEA.>>[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]>>NOBODY HAS EVER SUGGESTED THAT
TO ME. WOW. I LOVE THAT. WOW. HE MAY HAVE A FEW OTHER THINGS TO
DO. BUT I TELL YOU, THAT IS A GREAT IDEA. AND, YOU KNOW, IT IS
TRUE. THE NEXT PRESIDENT MAY GET ANYWHERE FROM 1 TO 3 SUPREME
COURT APPOINTMENTS. I WOULD CERTAINLY TAKE THAT UNDER
ADVISEMENT. HE IS BRILLIANT, AND HE CAN SET FORTH AN ARGUMENT AND
HE WAS A LAW PROFESSOR, SO HE HAS ALL THE CREDENTIALS. NOW, WE
DO HAVE TO GET A DEMOCRATIC SENATE TO GET HIM CONFIRMED, SO
YOU WILL HAVE TO HELP ME ON THAT.>>SO PRESIDENT OBAMA ON THE
SUPREME COURT? AN INTERESTING IDEA. THANKFULLY HERE, WE HERE
AT THE YOUNG TURKS HAVE A BODY TO RULE ON THINGS LIKE THAT. SHOULD PRESIDENT OBAMA BE
ON THE SUPREME COURT? WE TURN TO THE YOUNG TURKS
SUPREME COURT.>>IT’S A GOOD ONE. FIRST OF ALL I
WAS ANNOYED THAT THE PRESS SECRETARY AT THE WHITE HOUSE
SAID, MY GUESS IS OBAMA’S ASPIRATIONS FOR HIS
POST-PRESIDENCY EXTEND BEYOND A SUPREME COURT APPOINTMENT. HOW
MUCH HIGHER ARE YOU GOING TO GET? I THINK WHAT HE MEANS IS,
WE WILL GET PAID. WE WILL MAKE $100 MILLION AND THEN MAYBE WE
WILL TALK ABOUT THE SUPREME COURT. BUT I WILL VOTE NO. I
THINK THAT FOR ALL OF THE REASONS — THE EXACT OPPOSITE
REASONS AS THE REPUBLICANS.>>[BUFFERING]>>THE
WIRETAPPING OF AMERICANS,
A LOT LIKE BUSH DID, WHICH IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL, REPUBLICANS
WON’T BRING THAT UP BECAUSE THEY LOVE IT. I HAD MANY
CONSTITUTIONAL ISSUES WITH PRESIDENT OBAMA, SO I WOULD
PREFER A REAL SCHOLAR AND A REAL PROGRESSIVE, TO BE HONEST.>>I WOULD LOVE IT IF BARACK
OBAMA WAS A SUPREME COURT NOMINEE. I THINK IT IS A 12 ON A
SCALE OF 1 TO 10. BUT I HATED EVERYTHING ABOUT THAT.>>HOW HAPPY SHE WAS?>>[BUFFERING]>>OBVIOUSLY ANY AMERICAN WOULD
BE HONORED TO BE CONSIDERED FOR THE SUPREME COURT, THAT IS WHAT
JOSH EARNEST IS SUPPOSED TO SAY.>>AND IT IS AMAZING, YOU NEVER
KNOW WHAT HILLARY IS GOING TO DO TO MAKE YOUR SKIN CRAWL.>>WHAT DO YOU SAY ABOUT IT? BUT
I THINK HE WOULD BE A GREAT SUPREME COURT JUSTICE. I THINK
HE WOULD BE A BETTER LIBERAL — WHEN HE DOESN’T HAVE TO GOVERN,
I THINK HE WOULD BE MORE LIBERAL. EVEN WHEN CONSERVATIVES GET ON
THE COURT THEY BECOME MORE LIBERAL.>>THEY WIND UP HAVING TO READ A
LOT.>>MANY OF THE THINGS WE DISAGREE
FUNDAMENTALLY WITH HIM IS THE ACCOMMODATION OF HIM GIVING IN
TO DONORS AND HIM BUYING INTO THE SYSTEM. SO HE WILL STILL
HAVE BOUGHT INTO THE SYSTEM, ALTHOUGH HE WILL BE SURROUNDED
BY FEWER ADVISORS. I THINK HIS TRUE SELF ESPECIALLY ON SOCIAL
ISSUES IS PROGRESSIVE, BUT IT SICKENS ME THAT SHE NEEDS TO
SHOW THAT SHE LOVES OBAMA TO GET DEMOCRATS, SO SHE IS LIKE, THAT
IS THE BEST IDEA EVER. AND WATCHING IT AT HOME, OBAMA IS
LIKE, COULD I HAVE GOTTEN SOME OF THIS ENTHUSIASM IN 2007? YOU
WEREN’T THAT BIG OF A FAN THEN.>>JUSTICE OBAMA WOULD BE MORE LIKE
EXECUTIVE ORDER WRITING OBAMA.>>I HAVE BEEN OUTVOTED 3 TO 1,
APPARENTLY BARACK OBAMA IS NOT GOING ONTO THE SUPREME COURT,
BUT WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW IS THAT I HAVE NOT APPOINTED YOU TO
THE SUPREME COURT, THEREBY MAKING ME A 1 TO ZERO WINNER.>>PUT LARRY LESSIG ON THE
SUPREME COURT, LET’S GET A REAL CONSTITUTIONAL SCHOLAR.

    I'm no Obama fan, but he is man of integrity and strong character.

    #ObamaSupremeCourt2016

  2. Matt Juve says:

    I love that Hillary's most recent campaign strategy has basically been "Nobody likes you, just pretend that you are Obama."

  3. curtyos says:

    does that mean more drone strikes in the supreme court?

  4. Jerry Cart says:

    Whoever puts Obama up for Supreme Court Justice needs to be arrested for Treason and put in a strait jacket for a full bout of psychiatric assessment,….

    These people are deranged and have a personality obsession with this pretty pathetic black guy with only a mild talent for speaking but nothing else

  5. cub35guy says:

    All joking aside – though Obama would be GREAT! – This election is VERY important for this exact reason. You want an activist right wing court? or a normal one? You already have 4 FAR RIGHT morons – and a 5th who randomly does crazy stuff. You need 2 appointments by liberals to ensure a normal court. Just remember SCOTUS gave us George W. Bush — NOT — We The People.

  6. Adronias says:

    Obama would be awful. In all the important economic business related decisions he'd side with the conservatives.

  7. TopherPatten says:

    Not excited to see her appoint anyone.

  8. Geahk Burchill says:

    I can never tell if Hillary is being sarcastic or not.

  9. yeah says:

    Any person who want's their profession to be judge is by default a despicable human being.

  10. chefawkes says:

    He's too old. That would be a waste of a liberal supreme court justice. You're supposed to go for youth so they stay there for a long time.

  11. Charles Pearson says:

    I don't think Trump would nominate Obama

  12. Anti Hypocrite says:

    The only thing that Obama is going to do when he's not president in more is go live in Hawaii the rest of his life and get his $400,000 a year and why would he wanted live in the cold-hearted Washington, D.C.  And  the winters are that nice neither.

  13. 100ThomasFletcher says:

    Hillary, "Wow that's a great idea. I'm going to put right here, right on the fridge where everyone can see it"

  14. David J. says:

    William Howard Taft became a member of supreme court after his term so it is not unheard of.

  15. MikaelKKarlsson says:

    If only Hillary didn't actually loathe Obama, just like Billy-boy.

  16. proteuseffects says:

    I doubt Obama can pass Bernie's Litmus test

  17. Ryan Sin says:

    Every time I hear Hillary talk she sounds less sincere.

  18. Orion 911 says:

    The suppreme court is out of touch with the main stream

  19. Wisakedjak Archetype says:

    that would be great.

  20. Moaz Razzack says:

    If Bernie doesn't get elected president, he would make a great supreme Court Justice!

  21. 820CK W009 says:

    Obama should be in a prison cell right along side Bush.

  22. The Conquistador says:

    TRUMP 2016!!

  23. Jason Milton says:

    Hillary 2016!!!

  24. The Guam Guy says:

    Anyone else need to put earphones in to hear the guy on the left?

  25. Jahnn Drigo says:

    "Wow! What a great idea! Nobody has ever suggested that to me. Wowwww!"
    Ahhh if I had a dollar for every time I heard that……

  26. I support the gay agenda says:

    That would actually be a bit awesome just to make rightwingers heads explode.

  27. Krueger303 says:

    Ben Mankiewicz @1:17  lol

  28. niceguy60 says:

    I hope not as we do not need anymore extreme right ideology in the judicial branch, its bad enough we had to endure with his right wing policies in the executive branch.

  29. Joseph Nordenbrock says:

    Sanders won't discuss this during his campaign, but he might appoint Obama as a Supreme court justice. That would be a perfect way to show the G.O.P. the playground is no longer theirs and scare tactics no longer work on educated Americans that outnumber them.

  30. chris virginia says:

    That was a fantastic question.

  31. God Dam Problem says:

    "WOOW what a great idea, nobody ever suggested that to me"
    WOOW SHOCKING…..

  32. Visda58 says:

    Has there ever been a former President appointed to the Supreme Court?

  33. overunder 55 says:

    No. Not in Trump's America. Obama will continue to run around Washington after Trump is elected, acting like he's still president and condemning everything Trump does, like a crybaby.

  34. Mending Wall says:

    I will take Obama over Scalia any day

  35. Larry Nocella says:

    TYTSCOTUS intro screen shot needs an update SERIOUSLY BRUV

  36. Bev Rockar says:

    Obama would be allowed to rule on cases pertaining to his past presidency, significantly reducing his power on the court.

  37. Kelty Lillquist says:

    "WOW" three out of 4 Turkies live in lala land.  What a surprise.

  38. Liberty Smith says:

    Obama on the Supreme Court… Not in my Life Time… I hope. He has just about ruined the country in 7 years (Freedom and Liberty are Gone). Given a Life time he could complete the Job.

  39. Travis Pluss says:

    Obama would be a great SCOTUS judge. Though it would get under Republican's skin and prove the fact that there is such a thing as establishment politics. I'd much prefer if Bernie elected Obama than Hilary, since I trust Bernie's judgement more.

  40. Dante Xavier says:

    I am for it. For no other reason than to listen to my conservative counterparts bitch about it.

  41. ayyye bruuh says:

    Your not supposed to appoint members of supreme court that will only serve your agenda sadly every president does supreme court is supposed to be the only nonbias branch of government!!! There job is to interpret the constitution.

  42. Crisis7 says:

    Haha Fantastic.

    I would put Obama in the Supreme Court just to make the Republicans and AntiObama people's head explode.

    The Rage and tears would be just that much satisfying.

  43. pineapplesr2u swag says:

    Named after mobsters, in the great philly mob war, that have been sentenced to prison….

  44. Redridge07 says:

    TYT .. Cenk you are not critical thinker …. President Obama and Justice Obama would not be the same. Justice Obama would be more progressive.

  45. Overwatch Media News says:

    Hillary Clinton: "Now we do have to get a Democratic Senate to get him confirmed so you guys have to help me with that

    It's like the candidates are just 'Reality TV Shows' .. It's all scripted anyways.

    Except Rand Paul

  46. Hyperpandas says:

    How is this even remotely being taken seriously? He doesn't have nearly the career in law, nevermind zero experience presiding over cases, to be considered for SCOTUS.

    I like the guy and all, but a stint as a Constitutional law professor and just over a decade as an elected official doesn't qualify him for the job. Frankly, it would set a terrible precedent for all future SCOTUS appointments.

  47. adriano lehman says:

    she might as well say no!

  48. Alan Sinclair says:

    Hahahahaha…..That would push so many on the far-right over the edge.

  49. Daniel Tarczynski says:

    He probably wouldn't want to do it. 8 years of being president he has probably had enough of politics (Look at how harsh presidents age) from within the system. Obama honestly could have more impact as an ex-president working as an activist and spokes person for people of color than he can as a Supreme Court Justice.

  50. onlythewise1 says:

    of course all them wise jews will chose him  remember jews are the chosen ones

  51. Paul Raver says:

    One hand washes the other, that simple.
    Just pathetic corruption, ass finger politicians.

  52. Alex Morales says:

    How much u guys getting paid to talk from ur butt??? In the end I hope it's all worth it

  53. Isaac Hampton says:

    No president should be appointed to the supreme court, because it upsets the distribution of power. If later down the line the nation rallied to appeal The Affordable Care Act, then he would have a conflict of interest.

  54. Victor Facundo says:

    I would love to see him as a sc justice

  55. Timothy Sanchez says:

    Btw….I might feel stupid but they always do the supreme court picture in the background and I never noticed it said TYT Supreme Court till John said lets get to TYT Supreme Court.. Just an interesting thing I saw pointless comment really.

  56. MantisNoMore says:

    During a town hall event, Donald Trump should be asked if he will pardon and reinstate General David Petraeus.

  57. EloquentTroll says:

    This would not be without precedent, William Taft was appointed to the Supreme Court after his stint in the White House.

  58. darkseed2001 says:

    Obama will be too busy cashing in.

  59. quest 77051 says:

    president obama will be making tons of money from speaking fees all over the world.

  60. Samol Duong says:

    Obama would make a great SC justice. Every time I hear him speak so clearly and rationally about a contentious issue, I always think that his talent is wasted in political discourse.

  61. EgyptianMinor says:

    Well, Barack Obama is a lawyer, so it's quite fitting.

  62. malcolm forsberg says:

    I don't like that their main arguments in support of Obama is that he'll do things they agree on. A member of the SCOTUS shouldn't be liberal or conservative, they should strictly be interpretors of the constitution. Ideology should play no part.

  63. James Brown says:

    🇺🇸VOTE BERNIE SANDERS 2016⭐ AMERICAS NEXT PRESIDENT.🇺🇸BLACK SLAVERY REPARATIONS MONEY MATTERS MORE.🇺🇸

  64. Oklahoman Mapper says:

    That'd be pretty cool.

  65. Brendan Beckett says:

    When was the last time a former President became a supreme court justice?

  66. kramcas2 says:

    Hillary is fake af. Just listen to her reaction. Like talking to an annoying child who's trying to show off their crappy art.

  67. Mansamusa17 says:

    Hopefully

  68. Trish St Clair says:

    He has the credentials but not the actions to show he respects the constitution completely.

  69. LIVAE says:

    Obama would be an excellent SC justice.

  70. Thomas Graydon says:

    Go figure. 4 men, 0 women all bashing Hillary.

  71. Adam Murray says:

    I think he should have court experience before that decision is made. Even if it's like a year in a circuit court or something. We can speculate how he'd be as a justice but maybe we should observe first?

  72. YouTube Comments Critic says:

    "A real scholar and a progressive"? LOL! You mean like the current conservative right-wing assholes that took decades to finally approve gay marriage? Yeah, what a comparison.

  73. hang obama says:

    the only thing Obama needs is a public execution for treason.

  74. Bon Louis says:

    Obama needs to run for Governor of Illinois; he could hold that job for life

  75. Nightbob says:

    Cenk cares about the constitution? But wants a "real" progressive on the supreme court? The entire progressive philosophy is to undermine the constitution. I don't understand.

  76. willgtl says:

    Even if Obama isn't a progressive, it's still another liberal in the Supreme Court. However, I don't think he would accept an associate justice seat. Obama's credentials as far as law puts him more in the direction of chief justice. But since Chief Justice Roberts is quite young, the odds of Obama becoming the second Taft is slim to none.

  77. Tony Bastogne says:

    obama on the supreme court..i think I just vomited in my mouth

  78. Powerofthadolla says:

    only if bernie wins but still not sure.

  79. Nevis Cameron says:

    As a lawyer he could take a look at the specious and connotative interpretation of the Second Amendment, which has allowed America to become gun crazy. My reading of the Second Amendment indicates that it is contingent on the first condition 'A well regulated militia…' being met. What does 'A well regulated militia' mean? Would it result in the gun deaths of over 8000 Americans yearly? Maybe it's time to ask these questions.

  80. GUERRILLA SUNRISE says:

    CAPILLARY 2016

  81. d3g3n3r4t3 says:

    Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia is dead!. kinda weird she was asked this so recently if you ask me

  82. Jacob Garrison says:

    You guys Predicted Antonia Scalias Death

  83. Soho tim Smokin says:

    This will bring out the Republicans true colors.  And if we do get a Republican as president, the people would not have spoke.  They should realized that they have been muted.

  84. obamayoumama says:

    Obama should be a shoe shine boy

  85. ABLE2OVER says:

    , yep that's the plan as soon as they forge all of the boats and documents to get Hillary in the president's seat they've been practicing on hiding emails and burning documents lately yep that's the plan and then we're all fucked completely totally and utterly and we will just sit back and watch him do it and then after we're all desolate we will be like well I didn't see that coming

  86. ralph lee says:

    NIGGA PLEASE !  "BARRY" couldn't judge a knife fight on the South Side Ghetto of Chicago !!!

  87. King Lam says:

    I'd love to see Obama on the Supreme Court! 🙂

  88. onlythewise1 says:

    he should   go live in country's  that think like him

  89. Michael says:

    I like how we just talk about the supreme court like they are just a few seats to fill. like.. 'yea 1 to 3 old fuckers on the highest court in the land is about to die but all that matters is that i get to pick whose next. Who those people are dont matter.

  90. blank blank says:

    I'd rather wee Bernie Sanders put Conel West on the supreem court but they could do worse than Obama.

  91. Tellthetruth n/a says:

    Obama has no experience serving on the bench and no real litigation experience. A courtroom would be a foreign land to him. He is not remotely qualified to serve on the SCOTUS and he should not leapfrog above those who are due to his political connections. Cronyism is how we end up with failures like HC as SOS.

  92. myers laboratory says:

    no one did there job.

  93. ranfis mejia says:

    The Clinton's are pure Evil all the way through! LYING, Greedy, Corrupt, Evil, POS, Clinton's! Prison for them Not the White House! IS TIME WAKE UP.

  94. Platerpus7 says:

    Yeah ok, let's get someone who opposes the law into the supreme court. Obama should be worrying about staying out of prison not getting into the Supreme Court. He's not even a judge. TYT reaching for the starts again. You guys are following CNN into the dirt.

  95. Fummy says:

    Obama isn't a lawyer. Not that it matters now anyway.

  96. Brian Head says:

    Exective orders are pres. power. Wow how you changed when Trump was elected. Wow!!!!!!!

  97. Zarves 19 says:

    2018: "WEEEEELCOME to the WOOOORLD of TOMOOOORROOW!" – Futurama

  98. Henry Townshed says:

    Lol I need to get some of the pot you guys smoke

  99. James Scott says:

    Hilary is such a bad politican. Could even figure out how to give a charming response. How hard would it have been to say, "Well, I think Michelle would have a few choice words for if I did." Or something folksey like that.
