What #NeverTrump Never Understood . . .

It was about disruption, to be sure. As important, it was about shaping the judiciary for the next generation or two. But, hey, don’t take my word for it. Check out this headline from The Guardian (U.K.): “Liberals’ worst nightmare: a second supreme court pick for Trump.”

Good golly, Miss Molly! What does that mean?

From the story:

With speculation mounting over the possible retirement of supreme court justice Anthony Kennedy, Trump could have a lasting impact on reshaping America’s most important court.

“If President Trump fills another vacancy on the court it will have an enormous effect,” said Erwin Chemerinsky, the dean of Berkeley School of Law at the University of California.

“It will create the most conservative court since the mid-1930s,” he added. “It would mean a majority to overrule Roe v Wade and to allow states to prohibit abortions, to eliminate all forms of affirmative action, to eliminate constitutional limits on illegal police conduct.”

The president himself underscored the power of future vacancies earlier this year, when he tweeted that Republicans “must ALWAYS hold the Supreme Court!”.

On the other hand, Trump is a vicious bastard who says mean things and thinks wrong thoughts, so obviously, Hillary Clinton should hold sway.
