Trump has announced his Supreme Court pick and it’s just as horrific as everyone predicted — Washington veteran Brett Kavanaugh. The Yale University and Yale Law School graduate worked President George H. W. Bush, President George Bush and Clinton hater Kenn Starr. He is problematic on many fronts but probably his scariest, which is a plus for Trump, he is famous for believing sitting presidents should not undergo criminal investigation or prosecution — basically, he thinks Presidents are above the law. Like a mafia boss, Trump found someone to protect his ass.
During a stiff speech from Brett Kavanaugh, the 53-year-old pulled a remix version of the “I have Black friends card” and said, “My mother taught history at two largely African-Americans public schools so I understand the importance of equality.” Clearly, his mother was teaching him a whitewashed version of history, otherwise, he wouldn’t be anti-affirmative action.
The NAACP released the following statement on Kavanaugh, “Brett Kavanaugh is a dangerous ideologue whose extreme views on civil rights would solidify a far right majority on the Supreme Court. Coming after Neil Gorsuch’s appointment, a Kavanaugh confirmation would re-make the Court in President Trump’s own image. This prospect is unacceptable to the American people, and the NAACP is ready to lead the fight of a generation.”
The statement continued, “The NAACP knows Judge Kavanaugh well. We opposed his confirmation to the D.C. Circuit for good reason. In his 12 years on the bench, he has proven us correct. He has been a strong and consistent voice for the wealthy and the powerful. Over and over again, he has ruled against civil rights, workers’ rights, consumer rights, and women’s rights. ”
The NAACP isn’t alone. See the reactions from Twitter.
