For any Republicans who didn’t vote for Trump but are looking for a reason to support him, how about that he’s remaking the judiciary in the exact way every single conservative has wanted over the past say 20 years?
So much so that Sen. Elizabeth Warren sent out this unhinged rant demanding the president start nominating judges she think are best for the bench:
The Trump Admin is packing our courts with right-wing nominees like Chad Readler who want to tilt the scales in favor of the rich & powerful & against everyone else. Anyone who cares about protecting the rights of all Americans should be in the fight for fair, impartial nominees. https://t.co/5JUsxtvG8X

In other words, Republicans should be happy!
With all the things that have happened in this presidency, this is one of the scariest with the most lasting effect! Trump appointees will skew our justice system for decades to come ☹ https://t.co/jcTOQ1HgVW

So, yes … please, please publicize this more:
Even when/if #Trump is out of office, we will have to live with these incompetent, self-serving, right wing judges for the rest of my life. This is not getting enough attention. The #Trump ideology will infect our lives for many years to come in ways we don't even realize yet. https://t.co/QxhhSz79Gy

This could help with all the Republicans on the fence:

And we should also not this is hypocritical as Hillary Clinton endorsed a litmus test, at least for SCOTUS nominees:
.@hillaryclinton also said tonight she WOULD have a litmus test for Supreme Court nominees. That's a break with democratic precedent.

Heck, she wanted a litmus test just to be a Democrat, let alone a judge:

So spare us the outrage when we know Hillary Clinton would have done the exact, same thing.
