Liberals In Full Meltdown Mode As President Trump Says Process To Replace Justice Kennedy On Supreme Court Will ‘Begin Immediately’

Trump told reporters the process would “begin immediately .” The president said he would review an existing list of 25 candidates for the opening. The list was put together to fill the seat now held by Justice Neil Gorsuch. It was developed in consultation with conservative legal scholars. “It will be somebody from that list,” Trump said. Among the front-runners is Judge Brett Kavanaugh of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. Also potential replacements: Thomas Hardiman of Pennsylvania, who serves on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit, and Raymond Kethledge of Michigan, who serves on the 6th Circuit.

President Donald Trump said Wednesday that he would move quickly to nominate a replacement for Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, who announced that he will retire on July 31.

EDITOR’S NOTE: The 2018 version of the Democrat Party have given themselves a new name, Democratic Socialists. Their poster girl, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a 28-year-old grassroots activist, just pulled off the biggest upset so far in the 2018 election cycle. She won the New York primary in a landslide, and ran on a platform Far Left Socialism that would make Bernie Sanders look almost Conservative. Today’s news that Supreme Court ‘swing judge’ Anthony Kennedy is going to retire has sent the Left into apoplectic overdrive, as they watch their much touted ‘blue wave‘ slowing to a trickle. For his part, President Trump announced that the process to find Justice Kennedy’s replacement would ‘begin immediately’. And the Trump Train just keeps on rollin’, and keeps on winning. And winning. And winning. #Trump2020

Trump told reporters the process would “begin immediately .” The president said he would review an existing list of 25 candidates for the opening. The list was put together to fill the seat now held by Justice Neil Gorsuch. It was developed in consultation with conservative legal scholars.

“It will be somebody from that list,” Trump said.

Among the front-runners is Judge Brett Kavanaugh of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. Also potential replacements: Thomas Hardiman of Pennsylvania, who serves on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit, and Raymond Kethledge of Michigan, who serves on the 6th Circuit.

The retirement of Kennedy, who turns 82 next month, gives Trump the chance to further cement the court’s conservative bent. Kennedy, appointed by President Ronald Reagan, has been a swing vote on issues like abortion and affirmative action to gay rights and capital punishment. On those issues, he has often sided with the court’s liberal justices. Trump has made clear he wants to nominate justices with staunch conservative credentials.
