WATCH: Mitch McConnell Brutally Mocks Hysterical Libs Over Supreme Court Pick Opposition

Published

Ever since Justice Kennedy announced his retirement from the Supreme Court, the Democrats have been falling apart at the seams.

And we’re not just talking about the dramatic SJWs on Twitter lamenting the loss of their precious Roe v. Wade or the women who think the country will now be “literally The Handmaid’s Tale.” 

We’re talking about prominent Democratic leadership. But who can tell the difference anymore?

Mitch McConnell seems to agree, and he made no effort to hide his feelings on the Senate floor yesterday prior to Trump’s announcement of his SCOTUS pick, saying Democrats had gotten so dramatic that it was “hard to keep a straight face.”

The Daily Wire reports:

The Kentucky Republican took a shot at Sen. Bob Casey (D-PA), without naming him, for putting out a press release saying that he would not support whomever the president selected, the Free Beacon reported.

“It’s hard to keep a straight face when you hear stuff like that,” McConnell said. “There’s not even a nominee yet. Justice Kennedy just announced his retirement, and they’re talking about the destruction of the Constitution? Please, give the American people some credit.”

“This far-left rhetoric comes out every single time, but the Apocalypse never comes,” McConnell continued. “Americans see beyond this kind of far-left mongering. This kind of fear-mongering they tried over and over again for 40 years.”

“Senators should do the same,” McConnell said. “We should evaluate this president’s nominee fairly, based on his or her qualifications.”

There is a simple reason the Democrats are upset while Republicans are largely calm, and it’s not just because a Republican president nominated Kennedy’s replacement.

It’s because Republicans generally look to the Supreme Court to uphold the Constitution, while Democrats look to the Court to uphold their agenda. 

All they needed to hear was that Trump was going to appoint an originalist, and they were shaken to the core. That speaks volumes about the current state of the Democrat party, and certainly gives us a chance to once again give a sigh of relief that Hillary Clinton is not the one nominating Supreme Court Justices.

US Women’s Soccer Team Skips Representing U.S.A. at Opening Ceremony

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the Olympics opening ceremonies.

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the opening ceremonies at the Tokyo Olympics Friday. The famously anti-American soccer team claimed that they could not attend because they were scheduled to attend practice during the opening event, according to WXIA-TV. “Obviously we can’t be there, I don’t know who scheduled us to practice at this time,” chief anti-American team star Megan Rapinoe told the media. The women’s soccer team was all about protesting against the U.S.A. during its first Olympics game this week but lost to New Zealand in a crushing 3-0 final. Rapinoe added that this year’s gams are different than past games. “It looks quite different and feels quite different than in the past, but all of us are thrilled to be here,” she said. Team members Abby Dahlkemper and Rapinoe enacted a lame “private parade” and posted it to Twitter: https://twitter.com/USWNT/status/1418557013739536390 The America-hating women’s soccer team was not the only American team that skipped the opening ceremonies. Both the women’s and the men’s U.S. gymnastics teams also skipped the ceremonies. They similarly held their own version of the parade” https://twitter.com/InsideGym/status/1418539840564572160 Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.

Kid Suicides, Mental Health Hospitalizations Surge Worse than Coronavirus During Lockdowns

Kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns.

New research has found that kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns themselves. Kids ended up dying of suicides and being hospitalized for mental health illnesses at a high rate, according to a new study. Once again, we see that this “cure” was far worse than virus ever was, especially for young people. Per Just the News: Jeanne Noble, director of COVID response in the UCSF emergency department, is finishing an academic manuscript on the mental health toll on kids from lockdown policies. She shared a presentation on its major points with Just the News. Suicides in the Golden State last year jumped by 24% for Californians under 18 but fell by 11% for adults, showing how children were uniquely affected by “profound social isolation and loss of essential social supports traditionally provided by in-person school,” the presentation says. Children requiring emergency mental health services jumped last year in Children’s Hospital of Oakland, and children’s hospitalizations for eating disorders more than doubled at UCSF Children’s Hospital. In January, the latter’s emergency department (ED) at Mission Bay hit a record for “highest proportion of suicidal children in ER” at 21%. The study authors charged that the CDC is bringing serious harm to children with its coronavirus policies. Just the News added that kids are facing more than the virus. They are also facing an “atrophy” of the interpersonal skills because of masks and lost school time, and they are suffering great bouts of depression. It is even harder on teens, especially those close to graduation, because they face a stymied start to college, or their careers. This also brings severe depression.
