No way Dems let Trump choose the next SC judge without a fight. How do they try to stop it?

Another sexual misconduct allegation?

Claiming he's too close to the end of his first term to make an appointment?

Muh Russia?!

They'll invent something totally crazy since they have no real process to do it.

Itl be batshit crazy like actual rioting or bomb threats. Theyre shenanigans knows no bounds and there seem to be no consequences so on it goes.

How funny would it be if he nominates a POC? The left would melt.

 

But he has to win first. Not like he can shove through a SCOTUS judge in 3 months.

Romney, Collins & Murkowski This is terrible timing for Trump IMO. Now it’s likely to be an election issue. Takes the focus off of the rioting & BLM bullshit

Aren't there 53 Republicans in the Senate? And I believe Collins is up for re-election. So it would be either 51-53 votes yes, 50 votes yes with Romney/Collins/Murkowski abstaining, or 50/50 with Collins putting her re-election in jeopardy by voting no and Pence casting the tie breaker.This is going to happen. You think there will unrest of Trump appoints someone? You know what's worse than not filling a SCOTUS vacancy in an election year? Heading into what is most likely going to be one of the most litigated elections in history with a SCOTUS that can't guarantee a clear majority in its decisions.

Agreed. Also, no way the house votes in trump as president. Luckily neither of those things are necessary.

And all of the accusers are somehow deeply embedded into Democrat activism. Amazing how that works.

His pick will be a woman. So no “rapist” nonsense.

If he picks a woman, they will attack him. If he picks a dude, they will attack said dude. 
 

He’d be smart to push it, even if he doesn’t get it. This is what people really vote for
