Ingraham Sounds Off on Democrats, Celebs' Unhinged, 'Antifa-Like Resistance' to SCOTUS Pick
Kavanaugh a 'natural choice' for any GOP president.
In her Angle commentary, Laura Ingraham, said that watching the angry reaction of Democrats over the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court was "one part dystopian drama" and "one part sour grapes."
Trump on Monday nominated the District of Columbia Court of Appeals judge to fill the impending vacancy of retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy on the high court.
Kennedy's retirement gave Trump the opportunity to move the court solidly to the right.
Ingraham said that Kavanaugh is being considered a "monster" by Democrats as well as the Hollywood left because of how he could potentially rule on abortion, health care and gun rights.
PLEASE we must send the Senate a clear message: This country cannot afford a justice on the Supreme Court who is likely to support the gun lobby’s extreme, absolutist interpretation of the Second Amendment. Message your Senators now: https://t.co/0nhP1wVpch @Everytown @MomsDemand

Brett Kavanaugh, in just on just one case, attacked women’s rights, healthcare, and immigration.
He is the trifecta of terrible, and he must never sit on the Supreme Court.

Ingraham pointed out that prominent Democrats like Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) and Sen. Cory Booker (N.J.) were "reeling" over Trump's pick.
Warren said Monday after the president's announcement that it meant Trump is hearing the "hoof-beats" of an impending investigation, and Booker insisted that Kavanaugh's confirmation could not proceed.
"The last time I saw this many dinosaurs on fire, Chris Pratt was running from them," Ingraham referencing Pratt's "Jurassic World" films.
She said despite the "Antifa-like resistance" to the nomination, Kavanaugh could have been nominated by any Republican president.
Ingraham blasted Schumer for his contradictory comments made on Monday, saying that whomever Trump nominates has an obligation to share their personal views on pertinent legal issues.
Last year, however, he said the complete opposite, that "you can't ask a potential judge who's nominated for a judgeship about a specific case that might come before them."
Ingraham said that Democrats will create "viral drama" in order to turn out their base and "slash away" at a "perfectly competent" pick like Kavanaugh.
"But my sense is, when the dust settled, these dinosaurs will be presiding over a 'Fallen Kingdom' all their own," she concluded.
