As Twitchy has reported, Sally Kohn has been in a shouty mood Thursday, tweeting a lot in all caps, like this:
THERE ARE OTHER JUDGES!!!!!

Yes, there are … but Donald Trump won the election so it’s his choice. But Kohn’s tweet inspired CBS News correspondent Alex Wagner to imagine what might have happened in another administration were Brett Kavanaugh nominated:
In another administration, someone in the White House would have gotten the president’s ear and said 1) Kavanaugh is damaged 2) McConnell can get someone confirmed in the lame duck 3) This will tear the country apart 4) Let’s pick someone else https://t.co/v2mN97ZqMf

Is she talking about Earth 2, where Hillary Clinton is president? Or is she imagining one of the Republican candidates who lost to Trump in the primary? It doesn’t matter either way, really. The reality is Trump is president and he’s standing by his pick, period.
And this is why we like Trump. https://t.co/YiV55ZvoJp

This isn’t the anti-Trump argument you hope it is. https://t.co/98YV9VdTsL

No, it is not.
And by whose standard is Kavanaugh “damaged”?
Yes, any other GOP administration would have chickened out and not called the Dems' bluff. What's your point? https://t.co/AINrK3dRvb

Thankfully, we have a President with a strong backbone who understands the evil nature of the Left and their mouthpiece #FakeNews media. Never back down to these people. Those days are over. #ConfirmKavanaughNow https://t.co/t2Eu5ncMur

Our President won't be pushed around. The democrats have pulled this same crap twice before with SCOTUS appointments and he isn't having it. If they got away with this and he withdrew they would just do the same to the new nominee. And the next. https://t.co/vozpA0iTiH

…another progressive female who believes those not left-leaning should compromise or capitulate when they disagree with her ilk.@alexwagner, take your "er'rybody but us adjust" mentality and deposit – anywhere on your person – where the sun don't shine. https://t.co/2JzMxOouA6

Yet according to Bob Woodward’s book Fear and a recent NYT editorial this Republican administration is just chock full of and brimming with Trump resistors. Isn’t that so? What happened to them??? Those guys are so gullible. ? ? ? #MAGA https://t.co/TRRDVAL5oD

Trump is stronger than other Republicans. Check. https://t.co/DukITjcyqs

Because giving in to this kind of extreme, last-minute political blackmail would never have the effect of encouraging this type of political sleaze the next time. No, better plan: show them their smears won't work. #ConfirmKavanaugh #ConfirmKavanaughNow https://t.co/zHO17n0gsw

Yes, another GOP admin would have done those things. And y'all would have run the same playbook at that nominee, too.
If nothing else, Trump forced the GOP to finally fight back. That alone has earned my vote. https://t.co/qnXXgh4Mnh

They're used to Republicans cowering to their threats. Elections have consequences lady and you're seeing them first hand because you guys lost. https://t.co/u6P7fH3T6Y

Not to worry, Trump will get another pick in 2019 https://t.co/xi6R4qZ0TM

Any Judge Trump could/would have nominated would have been treated the exact same way.
To suggest Trump is trying to tear the county apart by nominating someone to an open seat is complete horseshit. https://t.co/0lRSFfEI4x

The country was already torn apart by the racial politics of Obama. Nice try though. https://t.co/3kP1nXAKuo

It’s been nearly two years and the press still doesn’t get Trump.
‘GFYS!’ Sally Kohn wrote Repubs a letter shaming them for being worried about their sons, guess how it turned out https://t.co/lhomZiofvL
