Trump is expected to announce his nominee for new SCOTUS justice today. Will post again once it's announced.

Based on what I am reading, I don't like Kavanaugh. Too staunchly conservative. Will overturn Roe, gut voting rights, choose corporations over people.

I'm reading on Twitter that Kennedy may have had a backdoor deal with the President that he'd retire as long as Trump appointed Kavanaugh to succeed him. Curious to hear what comes of it.

Funny, he was the most liberal of the 4 choices. Might as well appointed the most conservative one of the bunch if there is going to be outrage no matter what.

I'm more Live and Let Live in my opinion.
Let's Go! Enough of this tanking crap. It's time to win.

What makes you say that he is the most liberal? What decisions or cases lead you to think so?

Just because his other announced candidates were even worse...

Gotta give Trump credit for knowing how to play his game.
JJ will be better than KP when all is said and done [in 2020]. Mark it. — AIG, with Indy betting against
TJ Warren will average 20+ points a game this year.... Mark it. — iLLmatic

I really don't know myself, but that's what the people that actually look at it are saying.
