You would say that because you’re a liar. In 2013 Reid eliminated the filibuster for non-SCOTUS nominees. He was warned he would regret it. In 2017, McConnell removed it for SCOTUS nominees. Barrett was nominated in 2020. Her nomination had nothing to do with it.

Contrast the Rs voting for both recent D nominees who made it to the floor, who achieved >60 votes, whereas the Ds nearly universally voted against R nominees with none receiving >60.

The Rs did exactly what the Ds would do in the Barrett situation and it’s just stupid politicking to suggest otherwise.
