Wow! We didn’t know this about Donald Trump’s presidency. But does Obama’s Ebola czar Ronald Klain actually realize this is like the best thing about the Trump presidency for conservatives?
Trump has appointed more judges, more quickly than any President in history.
In 500 days he's named more appellate judges than Obama did in 1000.
Most of them will still be serving in 2050.
And if that's not a reason to fight like crazy to win the Senate this year…. https://t.co/8kO0ctvcCM

Obama bro Jon Favreau is bent out of shape about it, too, calling them “Trumpy judges”:

Oh, and let’s give a giant hat tip to none other than Harry Reid for all of this. Without Reid nuking the filibuster of judicial appointments, the GOP would never have been able to do this:
So, what idiot thought it was a good idea to do away with filibusters for judicial appts? Reid. https://t.co/72yayWPeu9

Hey, Obama wanted to get rid of the obstruction in the Senate over judicial nominees and NOW HE’S GOT IT! From the Washington Post:
After the vote, Obama told reporters at the White House that Republicans had turned nomination fights into a “reckless and relentless tool” to grind the gears of government to a halt and noted that “neither party has been blameless for these tactics.” However, he said, “today’s pattern of obstruction . . . just isn’t normal; it’s not what our founders envisioned.”
If Favreau and Klain are pissed that Trump and the Republican party are remaking the judiciary and they have nobody to blame but their own stupid, short-sighted party.
