Trump picks Kavanaugh
I think this sums up the coming SCOTUS battle nicely:
Yesterday, President Trump announced that he will nominate Brett Kavanaugh to fill retiring Justice Kennedy’s seat on the Supreme Court. You can learn about Kavanaugh here. His lovely family, soon to be trashed and violated, was present for the big 9 p.m. announcement. Kavanaugh made a nice speech that didn’t matter because he won’t be judged according to any abilities or judicial attitudes he has, only according to the person who nominated him. Expert-level trolling from the Trump folks last night, who forced the press to walk past a portrait of Hillary Clinton to enter the East Room for the announcement.
During the Gorsuch pick, reporters had been walked through the front colonnade of the mansion. This pick was different. The large gaggle of reporters were walked through the bowels of the service area, past some recycling and trash compactors and directly past Hillary Clinton’s portrait hanging in the White House first floor hallway.
Lunatics gathered outside the SCOTUS last night to flex their hysteria and ran off Fox News’ Shannon Bream while she was reporting.
Classy behavior from left as usual. Always supporting women.
Conservatives will launch a $1.4M campaign to overcome the slander and lies the left will spread to whip people into a frenzy. Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell will meet with Kavanaugh today. Has Roe been overturned yet?
