Earlier today President Trump said that he’d be making some announcements this afternoon:
I will be announcing a list of future potential Supreme Court Justices at 3:30 P.M. Eastern from the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House.
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 9, 2020
And as promised, Trump read the list, and it included the names of some Republican U.S. senators:
"Today I am announcing 20 additions to my original list of candidates for the United States Supreme Court," Pres. Trump says. "Should there be another vacancy on the Supreme Court during my presidency, my nominee will come from the names I have shared with the American public." pic.twitter.com/9eBeBmX1cH

Cruz and Cotton both tweeted that they were honored to be included on the list. Sen. Cotton also included this tweet:
It's time for Roe v. Wade to go.

You can already hear the heads exploding over that one — NARAL and others included:
This is who Trump wants on the Supreme Court. ?
This is what we'll get if we give him four more years. ❌
This is why we have to vote him out in November. ?#ReproFreedomVoter #SCOTUS https://t.co/4RVuXd9Zzb

So they’re handling that well.
And who would be on Joe Biden’s list? @ComfortablySmug makes a prediction:
Biden gonna release his one-name SCOTUS list: Barrack Hussein Obama.

That’s so very believable.
