In an exclusive interview with NPR’s Nina Totenberg, the president explained his decision to nominate Judge Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court and defended his choice, calling Garland “one of the best judges not just in the country, but of his generation.” Obama also blasted the Senate for obstructing the confirmation process, saying if it truly refuses to consider Garland, it would be setting a new precedent and “at that point, the judiciary becomes a pure extension of politics.”
