Senate Democrats will stage the "most disgusting thing" seen since the proceedings to confirm Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh with their fight against President Donald Trump's nominee to succeed late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, White House chief of staff Mark Meadows said Friday. 

"They are already gearing up, no matter who the pick is, to say this person, this female judge, is not qualified," Meadows said on Fox News' "Fox and Friends." "It's all about politics. It has nothing to do with the resume."

Democrats are still angry after Republicans blocked former President Barack Obama's 2016 nomination of Merrick Garland, Meadows agreed. However, he said, if the Senate had been controlled by Democrats at that time, they also would have voted on an election-year nominee.

"If they are going to go after a judge based on what they believe, not on how they voted, not based on their record, shame on them," he said. "I thought we were better than that as a nation. When we look at our Constitution, it allows us to really worship and have faith as we dictate, and that shouldn't be a litmus test for the court, and, yet, they are trying to make it exactly that."

Meadows also discussed Trump's healthcare order, including his vow on preexisting conditions and promise of a $200 discount card for seniors to help with their medication copays. 

"It's the first time that money went from Big Pharma's pocket into American seniors' pockets ... almost $7 billion going from Big Pharma back to the American people," said Meadows, dismissing critics' complaints that the card is being offered to buy seniors' votes.
