Trump Poised To Shape Supreme Court, Democrats In Total Meltdown
Few things are more exciting, and significant to America’s future, than having a conservative high court. President Trump is now poised to shape the U.S. Supreme Court for years if not decades as Justice Anthony Kennedy prepares to retire.
Even better than this news, is the liberal meltdown happening all over the country.
On Wednesday afternoon, longtime Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy announced he is leaving the bench on July 31. The largely moderate Supreme Court judge was typically the swing-vote on many issues. To say the news of his retirement came as a shock would be an understatement.
Of course, it was especially hard on progressive Democrats.
As word of Kennedy’s impending retirement began to circulate, so did calls to obstruct Trump in any way possible. Journalist and sports author Molly Knight was among the first to experience a breakdown over the news. Her reaction came dangerously close to calling for violence.
“How very cool of Justice Kennedy to pour kerosene on the current dumpster fire that is America,” Knight tweeted. “The Roe v Wade riots should provide fine entertainment for him in his retirement.”
Going lower than Knight, was Think Progress justice editor Ian Millhiser. Calling Kennedy a “horrible justice,” Millhiser gave him the customary liberal send-off on social media. “F**k. You. Justice. Kennedy.,” he wrote.
Adding to the panic, everyone’s favorite criminal activist Al Sharpton encouraged leftists to “organize, strategize, vote and act” to save civil and human rights. It seems the good reverend forgot which party opposed civil rights from the get-go.
Nevertheless, Trump fanned the flames of liberal outrage by putting out a list of potential nominees. Any one of the selections could push the Supreme Court solidly to the right on a host of ideological and social issues, including gay rights and Roe v. Wade.
