A bit of hyperbole, perhaps, but McConnell has allowed roughly twice as many judicial nominees to be approved (or even considered!) under Trump than Obama, per year: https://www.vox.com/2018/12/27/18136...ublican-judges

In any case, this doesn't change my point at all -- there are no consequences for violating these norms, and McConnell has shown this again and again. There's no point in pretending that any remaining supposed "norms" will last long, and no point in pretending that this is anything other than a political knife fight. The Democrats should do anything they can get away with to get any advantage they can, since that's what the Republicans are doing.
