One thing’s for sure:

Well, what doesn’t these days? But would the choice of a woman for the open SCOTUS seat soften the blow to the Left? From most indications, quite the opposite:
Setting up the "How can you say I don't care about women or that this is about hurting women? I put one on the court!" defense as he nominates the person who will end Roe v. Wade https://t.co/iJpZ4gPTuF

Just as @Hegemommy wrote yesterday. Trump is going to appoint a woman so everyone can say WELL DIDN'T YOU WANT MORE WOMEN? even as she votes to overturn Roe v. Wade
So once again: Women gaining power in systems that oppress other women is not the same thing as feminism https://t.co/v86v9RJ6nP

I've read a bunch of pieces in the past two days about how Trump would use a woman to dismantle Roe v. Wade. Looks like they're correct. https://t.co/fortyaolIa

Of course. With what they're going to do to women in this country, they want to be able to say we did it to ourselves. https://t.co/Q1waZ1SgOL

Our best hope here is that Trump accidentally announces the wrong name and is too embarrassed to correct himself and the Senate is too cowardly to vote against his choice and so we end up with just some random person who is reasonable and decent, as most random people are. https://t.co/7j8p2ziMpy

The only thing we know for sure is that the Left will be apoplectic no matter who Trump picks.
If he chooses a man they'll say he's sexist.
If he chooses a woman they'll say he's pandering and do their best to destroy her personally. https://t.co/zqlpJPozBN
