Trump Has Been Saving a “Special Replacement” For Ginsburg’s Seat!

When Brett Kavanaugh was nominated to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, many were surprised that President Donald Trump didn’t choose Amy Coney Barrett, another name that was heavily floated as a potential replacement.

Barrett currently serves as the Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit and was appointed by Trump. In the event that Ruth Bader Ginsburg passes away or retires, Barrett can expect to find herself on the top of Trump’s SCOTUS shortlist this time around. After her most recent health scare, Ginsburg missed SCOTUS arguments for the first time in her career.

According to AXOIS:

As he was deliberating last year over replacing Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, President Trump told confidants he had big plans for Judge Amy Coney Barrett.

“I’m saving herfor Ginsburg,”Ā Trump said of Barrett, according to three sources familiar with the president’s private comments. Trump used that exact line with a number of people, including in a private conversation with an adviser two days before announcing Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination.

During the decision of who to appoint to replace Kennedy, there were concerns that Barrett’s staunch pro-life stances would alienated GOP moderates such as Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski, but Kavanaugh shared the same stance. Regardless, it seems pointless to pick SCOTUS candidates based on whether they appeal to fake Republicans.

Democrats, meanwhile, are panicking:

What are Leftists afraidĀ of, exactly? Aren’t they the “Party of Women”?
