Leftist Tears Flood Twitter After Justice Kennedy Retirement Annoucement

Published

The political left is learning the hard way that elections have consequences amid the retirement of notoriously centrist Supreme Court Judge Anthony Kennedy, which will allow President Donald J. Trump to appoint another conservative Justice.

The first hot take comes from Tommy Vietor, former National Security Council spokesperson for President Obama:

Bill Palmer, founder of liberal blog Palmer Report, had some choice words for a 30 year Justice and public servant.

“Anthony Kennedy, how dare you retire from the Supreme Court now, allowing an Illegitimate monster like Trump to replace you,” he tweeted. “All you had to do was wait til (sic) November. You just killed America, you asshole.”

Commentator Roland Martin called for war with Republicans, keeping up with the recent violent rhetoric of the far left.

“Center-right Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy to retire,” he said. “The [GOP] is licking their chops to appoint a hard right judge. Dems should say no confirmation hearing until after November. That’s payback for the Merrick Garland appointment. Dems better be prepared to go to war NOW.”

Commentator Jeffrey Toobin opined that 20 or more states will outlaw abortion, knowing the Supreme Court will uphold their decisions.

“Roe v. Wade is doomed, it is gone because Donald Trump won the election,” cried Toobin on CNN.

Podcast host Rick Smith wasted no time fear-mongering, using the typical far-left talking points.

“Anthony Kennedy retiring from the [SCOTUS],” he said on Twitter. “Women say goodbye to Roe v Wade & possibly Griswold, LGBT community say good bye to your rights. Minorities? If you think it’s bad now…just wait. The police state is coming and Capital Punishment will be back. Say Hello to the Theocracy.”

And here’s one last one from Think Progress, it sort of speaks for itself:

According to Trump, he will choose another Justice from the list of 25 he used to choose Justice Neil Gorsuch, appointed in early 2017.

Romney, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski Emerge as Republican Red Flags in Potential SCOTUS Confirmation

They say they’ll vote ‘No.’

Republican Senators Mitt Romney of Utah, Susan Collins of Maine, and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska have emerged as early ‘red flags’ in the push to appoint a new Supreme Court justice, with the latter two senators having spoken openly of their refusal to vote for a new justice in the runup to a presidential election. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg died on Friday, opening up a vacancy on the court.

Collins allegedly told a New York Times reporter that she wouldn’t vote for a new SCOTUS justice in ‘October’ earlier this month.

Murkowski told a reporter with Alaska Public Media that she wouldn’t vote for a new justice before the election, either.

Reports emerged on Friday night that Romney would decline to vote for a court confirmation as well, although they’re yet to be verified.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is pledging to hold confirmation proceedings for a potential Trump Supreme Court nominee, suggesting that a nominee would receive a Senate floor vote before the election. He distinguished between the 2016 blocked nomination of Merrick Garland and the vacancy that arose from the death of Ginsberg, pointing out that a Republican President would be nominating a justice for confirmation through a Republican Senate.

It may be possible to confirm a new SCOTUS justice without the votes of the three-liberally inclined Senate Republicans, as a justice can be confirmed with 50 votes and a vice presidential tiebreaker. Other Republican Senators under the pressure of an ongoing campaign, such as Arizona’s Martha McSally, spoke in favor of the Senate having a floor vote on a tentative Trump administration SCOTUS nominee.

This could be the most heated Supreme Court confirmation process in history, and some the Senate Republican’s members have already confirmed they’re not standing with conservatives.
