With much fanfare, President Donald J. Trump announced Brett Kavanaugh would replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy on the United States Supreme Court.
Moments after the announcements, Democrats and the left-wing media lost their collective minds.
From Fox News:
Within seconds of Trump’s announcement in the White House Monday night, the far-left political action committee Democracy for America called Kavanaugh, 53, a “reactionary ideologue” whose confirmation would “directly lead to the deaths of countless women with the dismantling of abortion rights.”
And in a statement, the Women’s March said ominously: “Trump’s announcement today is a death sentence for thousands of women in the United States.”
“Stripping a woman’s ability to make decisions about her own body is state violence,” the group continued. “We cannot let this stand. We will raise our voices and take to the streets.”
In an embarrassing blunder, though, the Women’s March statement began: “In response to Donald Trump’s nomination of XX to the Supreme Court” — indicating that the group didn’t expect to have to change its pre-written press release much on Monday night.
The mood outside the Supreme Court soured quickly throughout the evening, as protesters screamed and jostled in a markedly hostile atmosphere after Trump announced his selection.
Saying that a would-be Justice Kavanaugh would somehow be responsible for the deaths of thousands of women strains credibility, even for the unhinged leftist Women’s March.
This kind of outlandish, left-wing hyperbole is more responsible for the negative political discourse in our country than anything President Trump or his presidential campaign ever did.
Team MAGA should expect a bruising confirmation battle ahead for Kavanaugh, if this is what the left is going to resort to.
Call your Senators and urge them to support Kavanaugh for the court.
