Democrat Response To Trump’s New Supreme Court Pick Is SO Predictable

On Monday evening, President Trump fulfilled his vow to the American people in naming his next pick for the Supreme Court, Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

The pick was announced at a press conference in the White House where Trump was accompanied by the 53-year-old judge. Also standing on stage with the judge was Ashley Kavanaugh, his wife, and their two children.

From Fox News:

President Trump nominated appeals court judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court Monday night to replace retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, ending a days-long guessing game that began the moment Kennedy announced his retirement and setting the stage for a grueling confirmation fight.

In televised remarks from the East Room of the White House, the president praised what he called Kavanaugh’s “impeccable credentials, unsurpassed qualifications and a proven commitment to equal justice under the law.”

“There is no one in America more qualified for this position, and no one more deserving,” Trump said at the presser.

The rumor mill began to push Kavanaugh’s name as the frontrunner soon after Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement on June 27. The president interviewed several other candidates before settling on Kavanaugh and will undoubtedly look to press the Senate to confirm the second Supreme Court pick of his early presidency.

Following Trump’s announcement, the judge also shared a few words.

Fox News:

“If confirmed by the Senate, I will keep an open mind in every case, and I will always strive to preserve the Constitution of the United States and the American rule of law.”

He said a judge “must interpret the law, not make the law.”

Trump has put forth a conservative judge who could be at his post, should he be confirmed, for a number of decades. Democrats predictably want none of it.

Shortly following the announcement, Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren took to social media and criticized Kavanaugh’s nomination. She also said she would be voting against him during an expected confirmation vote.

“Brett Kavanaugh’s record as a judge and lawyer is clear: hostile to health care for millions, opposed to the CFPB & corporate accountability, thinks Presidents like Trump are above the law – and conservatives are confident that he would overturn Roe v. Wade. I’ll be voting no,” she tweeted.

And, from former Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders:

During the White House announcement, Democrat Senator Kirsten Gillibrand was outside of the Supreme Court with a group of protesters. She led anti-Kavanaugh chants and forced capitol Police to shut down pedestrian traffic to First Street, Fox News reports.

Her efforts were echoed by Democrat Senate Leader Chuck Schumer who quickly took to social media and expressed his frustration over the pick.

Most of Schumer’s and the arguments of other Democrats center around the assumption that Kavanaugh will look to overturn Obamacare and Roe v. Wade. If Schumer is this fearful of Trump’s pick, then conservatives can rest assured that it was a good one.
