Liberal tears were flowing heavily on Monday night after President Donald Trump selected Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court.
During an event at the White House, the president announced that Kavanaugh would be his choice to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, who announced he would be retiring on July 31.
Within minutes of Trump’s announcement, liberals melted down on Twitter, with some claiming Kavanaugh will threaten the lives of millions of Americans:
The nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh will threaten the lives of millions of Americans for decades to come and will morph our Supreme Court into a political arm of the right-wing Republican Party.

In selecting Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court, @realDonaldTrump has put reproductive rights and freedoms and health care protections for millions of Americans on the judicial chopping block. #WhatsAtStake #StopKavanaugh #ScotusPick pic.twitter.com/vUoVpJ6SHu

The Supreme Court nominee @realDonaldTrump will announce tonight will have an impact on a woman’s right to choose for generations to come. He said overturning #RoeVsWade “will happen automatically” during his presidency. We can’t let that happen. #WhatsAtStake

If Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed to the Supreme Court it will have a profoundly negative effect on workers' rights, women's rights and voting rights for decades to come. We must do everything we can to stop this nomination.

Trump’s Supreme Court Justice nominee, Judge Kavanaugh, represents a direct and fundamental threat to the rights and health care of hundreds of millions of Americans. I will oppose his nomination to the Supreme Court. #SCOTUSpick

.@realDonaldTrump wants to use the Supreme Court to undo what makes our country great. With his choice of Brett Kavanaugh, the Affordable Care Act is in danger. Voting rights and workers' rights are under threat. A woman's right to choose is on the line. #WhatsAtStake

Just like Donald Trump Jr. predicted, there was a flash flood warning because of all the liberal tears.
Despite doom-and-gloom from liberals, with some implying Trump’s pick will kill people, many praised Trump for picking Kavanaugh.
Kavanaugh currently serves on the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C. He previously worked in the White House under former President George W. Bush as a counsel to the president and, later, as staff secretary. Kavanaugh is also more conservative in his rulings than Kennedy, giving Republicans a strong 5-4 majority on the high Court.
Conservatives praised the president for nominating a strong conservative who will fight for individual and religious liberties on the nation’s highest court.

Kavanaugh is a double, not a home run. On the one hand, a double is one hell of a lot better than being hit in the head by a fastball from Hillary Clinton's pick. On the other hand, we were promised full ownership of the libs.

This is a truly excellent choice by the President. I know Brett Kavanaugh to be a man of character, decency and intellectual depth. He has the mind and temperament of a great Supreme Court justice.

Republicans currently control a 51-49 majority in the Senate. Despite liberals inevitably throwing a never-ending pity party, there’s not much they can do to stop Trump’s pick from being confirmed.
In fact, there are currently four Senate Democrats — Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Joe Donnelly of Indiana, and Claire McCaskill of Missouri — who are in states that Trump won big in the 2016 presidential election.
These four Democrats are not only in very tight Congressional races ahead of midterm elections, they are also facing extreme pressure from their constituents to vote in favor of Trump’s SCOTUS pick.
So, even if one or two GOP Senators do not vote in favor of Trump’s pick, a handful of Democrats will more thank likely vote for Kavanaugh, to save themselves politically from voters.
When Democrats stop crying, they will undoubtedly smear and attack Kavanaugh. But Republican lawmakers are confident they will get Trump’s pick confirmed before the midterm elections in November.
