Kennedy Just Announced His SCOTUS Retirement; We’re All F**cked

The Donald Trump “presidency” has been an absolute nightmare for everyone who isn’t a raving, right-wing bigot. Just when we thought it couldn’t get any worse, on Wednesday, Justice Anthony Kennedy retired from the Supreme Court. Now, we all know what that means. Kennedy, while a conservative, 0ften sided with the liberals when it came to things like women’s rights, voting rights, and LGBTQ rights; in fact he actually wrote the Obergefell v. Hodges decision. Now, Evil Trump will be gunning for the hardest of hard right bigots that he can get through the Senate so that he can put his narcissistic, bigoted mark on American law for the next half a century or more.

In fact, according to CBS News, Trump is already saying that he is going to, quote, “immediately” pick an “outstanding” nominee to replace Kennedy. Of course, this is all about the impending Blue Wave in the coming Midterm elections. The GOP holds the Senate with the slimmest of margins, and they know that they could lose it easily come November. Therefore, tricky Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) will absolutely pull every rabbit he can out of his slimy turtle shell in order to make sure whatever bigoted nominee Trump picks makes it onto the Supreme Court.

Folks, for those purists who thought that there was no difference between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump – what do you think now? Basically, everyone not straight, white, male, cisgender, and Christian can kiss our civil rights goodbye.
