After much anticipation, President Donald Trump nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh as the next U.S. Supreme Court justice on Monday night.
Kavanaugh, a staunch constitutionalist who studied law at Yale. Even CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin admitted he is a highly accomplished judge.
"Kavanaugh is in perfect shape," Toobin said during CNN’s coverage on Monday night.
Left-leaning Vox reported that Kavanaugh, 53, is a "veteran of every conservative cause you can imagine, from the 2000 Florida recount to the fight against Obamacare."
There is no way to look at this as anything but a huge win for conservative values for decades to come.
That's why liberals everywhere were having a total meltdown over Trump's SCOTUS pick, predicting dire consequences for women and civil liberties of Americans.
Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) claimed Kavanaugh was a "true Second Amendment radical" because he supports gun rights.
Democratic activist Scott Dworkin freaked out over his views on unions.
President Trump said Kavanaugh deserves a speedy confirmation from lawmakers and “robust bipartisan support” as he is uniquely qualified to sit on the Supreme Court.
"If confirmed by the Senate, I will keep an open mind in every case," Kavanaugh said after being introduced by the president.
Senate Republicans currently have enough votes to confirm Kavanaugh without any votes from Democrats, making his confirmation highly probable.
