To say Anne Coulter likes to poke the bear is a massive understatement.
But she did much more than that when she suggested that President Donald Trump will be naming the replacement of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Setting Off Liberals
Right now, liberals are in panic mode, worried that if a liberal justice retires, President Trump is going to be able to name his or her replacement.
Had Hillary Clinton won in 2016, it is widely believed that Ginsburg would have stepped down.
At 85 years of age, she is making the case for mandatory retirement.
She has been seen napping and often seems out of sorts when talking in public.
Yet this woman still sits on the most powerful court in the land.
She will no doubt try to hang on in hopes that Trump only has one term.
However, if Trump wins reelection in 2020, Ginsburg would be on the other side of 90 by the time he left office.
It is anyone’s guess if she would make it through Trump’s second term, or even get into his last year, when he would be a lame duck in terms of picking a new justice.
Coulter was discussing Trump’s nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, Trump’s second pick for the high court, when the topic of Ginbsurg came up.
She had stated she was “very happy” that Trump stuck to his guns to nominate Kavanaugh, rather than nominating one of the judges that had been recommended to create an easier path with Democrats.
Coulter also said that Democrats are hoping to get a lead on the Supreme Court so they can push through more liberal legislation and have the Supreme Court uphold their laws to change the country.
She went on to warn that if we thought liberal outrage was bad over the press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Michael Cohen tapes, those reactions are “nothing compared to Trump being able to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg.”
Honestly, it would not be surprising to see rioting in the streets if Trump was able to get a 6-3 edge for conservatives on the Supreme Court.
But if that happens, it would all but guarantee our courts would be forced to honor the Constitution to the letter for the next three or four decades.
And that would be just another victory notch on Trump’s belt.
