The hosts of ABC's The View started off Tuesday show discussing what they thought about President Trump's recent Supreme Court pick, Brett Kavanaugh. Surprisingly Joy Behar was really the only one to come out swinging against Trump's nominee.
On her 9:00 a.m. ET hour show on Tuesday, NBC anchor Megyn Kelly took Democrats to task for opposing President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, declaring that they “lost this fight on November 8th, 2016" and were just being “bitter.” She added that “Trump deserves his choice.”
On Tuesday's New Day on CNN, during discussions of President Donald Trump selecting Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the U.S. Supreme Court, CNN chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin again fretted over the possibility that the Court will overturn Roe v. Wade and allow discrimination against homosexuals.
The morning after President Trump named D.C. Circuit Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh as his second nominee to the Supreme Court, Tuesday’s CBS This Morning rushed to get reaction from Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. In the softball interview that followed, the liberal lawmaker was asked how he might “stop the nomination” and whether it would be a “betrayal of the party” for any Democrat to vote to confirm Kavanaugh.
Amid CNN’s analysis of President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh on Monday night, their senior legal analyst, Jeffrey Toobin requested that the panel think about how Obama SCOTUS nominee Merrick Garland and Hillary Clinton must feel watching the announcement.
Late Monday night, Fox News @ Night host and Supreme Court correspondent Shannon Bream tweeted that she had to flee her live shot from outside the Supreme Court after having “felt threatened” by the “very volatile” “mood” by the far-left protesters having conniptions over President Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh for the nation’s high Court.
Hollywood stars and the liberal media had a very mature reaction to President Trump’s announcement — they whined. A lot. Some even called for protests. After Trump announced U.S. circuit court judge Brett Kavanaugh as his pick for the Supreme Court’s vacant seat on July 9, liberals turned into children at a daycare in need of a nap and bottle.
The new Supreme Court pick is very “controversial,” whoever he or she turned out to be. That’s the consensus of ABC’s Nightline. About 90 minutes before Donald Trump announced the name of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, Nightline’s Twitter page blasted:
Moments after Monday night’s White House event concluded in which President Trump announced D.C. Court of Appeals Judge Brett Kavanaugh as his Supreme Court nominee, ABC News ripped into Kavanaugh and sought to cast doubt on his confirmation as “not a slam dunk” that’ll trigger “a battle royale in the Senate.”
Seconds after it was revealed that Donald Trump had selected Judge Brett Kavanaugh as his Supreme Court choice, MSNBC immediately freaked out and deemed him an extreme“right-wing” “conservative.” Liberal MSNBC host Chris Hayes anchored the conversation seconds before Trump’s live announcement: “This is a guy who cut his teeth on the Starr report. He has moved in conservative, right-wing legal circles for the entirety of his career.” A few seconds later, Hayes again warned that Kavanaugh “spent his life in conservative, right-wing legal circles.”
