CNN hosts Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon rarely miss an opportunity to smear Trump supporters, and they certainly took advantage on Tuesday night when discussing the president’s impact on the judicial branch. Lemon and Cuomo, who are, like most liberals, worried sick about losing the branch of government they’ve been so successful at filling with one activist judge after another, were dismayed over Christian conservatives and their support for Trump.
“The White House last week cheered as the number of confirmed judges on its watch crossed the 150 mark,” Cuomo said in the closing moments of his show. He expressed irritation of the number of “older white men” that had been nominated by the president, Cuomo doubled back to correct himself. “Not older men, they’re younger men, which means they’re going to be there for a long time.”
Why, shouldn’t we be celebrating some longterm consistency on the federal bench? Oh, not when the judges are white men? Gotcha. Apparently there’s something weird about the Constitution that makes it more difficult for white men to read it and understand it. We need more “wise Latinas” to interpret the nation’s founding document correctly.
“A lot of law is made in the lower courts,” warned Cuomo. “So, a lot of these issues that you care about; whether it’s reproductive rights, whether it’s due process. The idea that it all gets decided at the Supreme Court is not always the case. And these judges are going all across the country, so be on the lookout.”
Leftists who watch Chris Cuomo actually care about due process? Could’ve fooled us.
That’s when Cuomo started the handoff to Don Lemon, who drives the Idiot Train through the 10:00 hour.
“This is why people who come on, some of the Trump supporters, and they say this is why they…I can’t stand anything else he does, but it’s the policies,” Lemon said. “He’s getting the judges through, and he’s getting a lot of them through, and people aren’t even noticing. He had a milestone, as you said, 150 appointments.”
To which Cuomo replied: “Christian conservatives, okay? You and I have grown up with them saying, it’s not just about policy and politics. It’s about the personal. Character counts. Remember Mike Pence wrote this famous letter now about Bill Clinton; it’s about morality and leadership. We must treat him as a neighbor. It’s not just about the law. Now he stands next to President Trump. They surrendered character for the courts. That’s what they did.”
Like…there’s a kernel of truth in what Cuomo is saying, sure there is. But the fact is, Christians know we are up against the wall right now. Whatever you might think about Trump’s personal life, it’s insignificant compared to what liberals are trying to do to our country. This isn’t about tax rates or foreign policy. This is about free abortions on every streetcorner, the eradication of the First Amendment, and a whole host of other troubling developments over in LeftyWorld.
Surrendered character for the courts? More like: Got tired of surrendering altogether.
