Whenever big news breaks — say, the impending retirement of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy — old tweets always manage to gain new life. Upon hearing the news, Twitter archaeologists did some digging and came up with this 2015 gem from Hillary Clinton:
A Republican president could nominate as many as 4 Supreme Court justices. Why that should terrify you: https://t.co/gaRy4MSDzo

Only four? That’s not really terrifying. Four’s a good number for us.
Four in his first term?

The deplorable Republicans are about to change the court for a lifetime and there's nothing you can do about it. pic.twitter.com/FLTDHOxvM3

We are electrified. Not terrified. Deplorables are large and loud and we know the Constitution. I thank God every day for President Trump.
