Pinocchiohontas is making all sorts of statements about the character of the judges that Trump has appointed.
Sen. Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren(D-MA) said at the “We The People 2020” forum in Des Moines that President Trump has prioritized bigoted anti-voter judges for his judicial appointments.
Does she have proof?
Not really. But then, she doesn’t need proof.
Warren says just look at their judicial records — because if they’re on the “wrong” side of any issue that clearly means that they’re racist, sexist, or homophobic.
The real issue is that President Trump has appointed two originalist Supreme Court Justices, and a whole host of other conservative judges to fill seats on high courts.
Now up to 187 Federal Judges, and two great new Supreme Court Justices. We are in major record territory. Hope EVERYONE is happy! https://t.co/ymEQljJyib

Trump has nominated two Supreme Court justices who tend conservative, Brett Kavanaugh, who replaced retired Justice Anthony Kennedy, and Neil Gorsuch, who filled the seat of the late Justice Antonin Scalia.
Besides the nominations to the high court, which enjoyed a high profile in the media, Trump has also named at least four dozen judges to federal appeals courts, nearly as many in his three years in office as the 55 judges former president Barack Obama appointed in his eight years as commander-in-chief. Over a quarter of judges on those courts are now Trump appointees.

WARREN: I think what’s at the heart of it is who you ask to be a judge. And I’ll tell you what the answer has been for Donald Trump, cause I’ve seen these guys. Homophobic, that’s in. Racist, that’s in. Sexist, oh yeah, most definitely. And anti-voter. That’s been a big qualification. He has named one person after another. And I don’t mean we have kind of a sense that that’s who those people are. I mean look at their written records. Look at the activities they’ve already engaged in. Look at the fights they’ve been in and what side they’ve been on.

Clearly, this is all about the left protecting their ability to legislate from the bench. Now that President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell(R-KY) have committed to appointing conservative judges, the federal courts are shifting to the right. Currently, 1 in 4 circuit court judges is a Trump-appointee.
Lieawatha just can’t have that.
How do you exert your will over an unwilling electorate if you can’t count on lefty judges to push your agenda forward — Constitution be damned?
