DISPATCHES FROM THE HOUSE OF STEPHANOPOULOS: ABC Frets, ‘Country Is Going to Change Profoundly’ over Trump SCOTUS Pick.
Meanwhile, at Time-Warner-CNN-HBO, “Jeffrey Toobin: ‘Roe v Wade is doomed’”
And finally in Hollywood, Bette Midler dusts off her comedic chops to inadvertently remind us once again that Trump is the worst power-mad dictator ever: “Every single institution or agency in our government is being dismantled by this administration. Congress, gone, SCOTUS, gone, the Executive branch, in the hands of a madman, the FBI, DOE, EPA, etc. etc. etc. And you thought it couldn’t happen here.”
A government that leaves us alone? Calvin Coolidge smiles.
As Adam White of the Hoover Institute tweets, “When a single judge’s retirement turns the entire political world on its ear, we ought to consider that perhaps the Supreme Court has claimed too much power in our republic.”
LIZ SHELD’S MORNING BRIEF: Trump SCOTUS Pick Will Destroy the U.S. Constitution and Much, Much More.“Yesterday the SCOTUS gutted the union political machine in the Janus v. AFSCME decision and then for the cherry-on-top, Justice Anthony Kennedy announced he would retire. President Trump will be filling another seat on the bench. I was a little sad we didn’t have time to drink the liberal tears from Janus before the nuclear meltdown over the Kennedy retirement, but I’ll take it.”
It was a good day.
