Liberals Melt Down Over Justice Kennedy Retirement and It’s Glorious
On Wednesday, Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced he will be retiring from the bench at the end of July.
Kennedy, 81, has been a noted swing vote on the court with his decisions often determine the deciding vote on a court split 4 to 4 between liberals and conservatives even though he was considered a conservative, having been appointed by President Reagan in 1987.
President Trump is reportedly choosing Justice Kennedy’s replacement from a list of 25 judges – the same list he chose Justice Neil Gorsuch from last year.
The left is going insane.
Anguished cries could be heard from Democrats at a DNC meeting in an audio obtained by Politico’s David Siders the moment it was announced Justice Kennedy would be retiring.
Liberals also melted down on Twitter:
IF YOU THINK A SINGLE REPUBLICAN SENATOR WILL CARE ABOUT RULES OR PRECEDENT OR ANYTHING BESIDES CONFIRMING A TRUMP RUBBER STAMP WHO WILL ALLOW THIS COUNTRY TO BECOME A ECONOMICALLY LIBERTARIAN PLACE THAT IS A CHRISTIAN THEOCRACY ON SOCIAL ISSUES, YOU HAVE NOT PAID ATTENTION https://t.co/HFZQ5qDGLx

Every single one of these rights is now in the balance. Democrats have not traditionally voted based on the court. And they have been spotty about voting in midterms. November was already critical for every vulnerable group in America. It just became *everything, esp. the Senate. https://t.co/x1XcKyHI9w

For starters, abortion rights are more imperiled now than at any time since Roe v. Wade. And there is no reason to think there won’t be a rollback of gay rights, either, with Kennedy gone. https://t.co/awg2oC5uYl
