On his nationally syndicated radio program Tuesday, host Rush Limbaugh said that Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh is impeccable on paper and that some of the left’s objections are laughable.
Discussing President Trump’s recent announcement of Brett Kavanaugh as his Supreme Court nominee, Rush stated, “On paper he’s impeccable. On paper, there is no just way to disqualify Brett Kavanaugh as a Supreme Court justice,” Rush added, “And some of the left’s objections to Kavanaugh today, they’re really weird. I mean, they’re strange; they’re laughable. And people are laughing at some of the things the left’s saying. ”
Rush Limbaugh’s comments come after public outrage on the left has exploded over Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh. A slew of Democrats has come out against Kavanaugh, including Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ.) who suggested that Kavanaugh could be Trumps’ “get out of jail free card.” Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) even suggested that “There is enormous grounds for suspicion right now about this nominee.
A transcript of Limbaugh’s comments can be read below:
“The Supreme Court choice is Brett Kavanaugh, 12 years on the D.C. Circuit for the court of appeals, which is a feeder circuit for the Supreme Court. On paper he’s impeccable. On paper, there is no just way to disqualify Brett Kavanaugh as a Supreme Court justice.
“The left, however, got in gear last night. Even before they knew the name, they started organizing protest marches, and they had protest papers and positions already out. They just had to fill out the name of the nominee; didn’t matter who it was.
“And some of the left’s objections to Kavanaugh today, they’re really weird. I mean, they’re strange; they’re laughable. And people are laughing at some of the things the left’s saying. I had to catch myself because 25 years ago I was laughing the things they said. Now, all that stuff has happened. Much of that stuff that we were laughing at, “Nobody would ever buy this stuff.” A lot of people have.
“So it’s tempting to laugh at ’em, and I’m going to, and it’s tempting to mock them. But at the same time, you have to realize that there is a certain percentage of Americans buying into all of this and eating it all up. And the more extreme the Democrats go, you would think on the surface they’d be killing their own goose.
“Now, much of it is fundraising. I’m hesitant to make any predictions. On paper, there’s no way to stop this. I mean, McCain has come out and tweeted his support for Kavanaugh. That pretty much makes it automatic. The Democrats just don’t have the votes right now to stop this, even without any defections from red-state Democrats up for reelection. But of course, the hearings haven’t begun.
“They can’t stop this, but it doesn’t matter. They’re gonna go to the mattresses trying to raise money. They’re gonna do everything they can to rip this country apart over this because the court is their last bastion of making sure that their worldview remains viable even after they lose elections.”
