Liberals Prove They're Never Satisfied With Gorsuch, Kavanaugh Gripes

Liberals are, if nothing else, consistent.

From the Jan. 20, 2017 presidential inauguration to the present, their goal has been to resist anything coming out of the White House. Whatever it is.

That was demonstrated Monday night after President Donald Trump announced his pick to fill the vacancy that will be left with the July 31 retirement of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Although four names were advanced as being on the president’s short list, his final pick —Judge Brett Kavanaugh — was kept under wraps until it was announced shortly after 9 p.m. Eastern.

In an effort to be the first to denounce the president’s high court nominee, no matter who that may be, the Women’s March movement released a "fill in the blanks" press release, forgetting to fill in all the blanks, or in this case the XX’s.

"In response to Donald Trump’s nomination of XX to the Supreme Court, The Women’s March released the following statement," the organization’s email began, according to The Washington Examiner.

Perhaps even more egregiously, the group remembered to fill in the blanks later on in its statement, but didn’t bother to check the spelling of Kavanaugh’s name. They mangled it into "Cavenaugh." 

CNN’s Jason Scher published the Women’s March full statement on Twitter, highlighting the paragraphs with mistakes.

Kavanaugh was, if anything, a conventional conservative nominee, who’s arguably deeply-embedded in Washington, D.C. politics and the most centrist of the president’s "final four."

Trump’s nominee apparently took ABC News’ Terry Moran by surprise. ABC’s "Nightline" reported that Moran would report "on the controversial Supreme Court Justice pick and the possible implications for the country."

ABC News later issued a correction. Instead of reporting on the "controversial" nominee, Moran would report on the "controversy surrounding" the nominee.

It was much the same in January of 2017, when Trump nominated then-Judge Neil Gorsuch to the high court. Although his name wasn’t announced until the very last moment, that didn’t stop the left from preparing signs protesting the pick — whoever it may be.

Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., made a trip to the Supreme Court building that night to find out for himself what the protest was all about. He found and tweeted a photo of demonstrators with signs pre-printed with "#Stop" followed by a blank with the name "Gorsuch" filled in by hand with a magic marker.

Gorsuch filled the vacuum from the death of the latte Justice Antonin Scalia the year before. Former President Barack Obama attempted to replace Scalia with Judge Merrick Garland, but Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., blocked that appointment.

Had Trump appointed Obama’s pick, there’s little doubt the signs would have dutifully said, "#Stop Garland."
