Viral Women's March Mocked for Blunder in Statement Opposing SCOTUS Nominee
Conway: Dems would 'resist and obstruct' no matter what.
Following President Donald Trump's nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to replace retiring Supreme Court Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy, the Women's March released a statement condemning the pick.
Unfortunately for the left-wing organization, the statement contained a clear sign that it was written before the actual name was announced by Trump.
"In response to Donald Trump's nomination of XX to the Supreme Court," the statement began, forgetting to remove the XX from the prepared release and replace it with a name.
The statement also misspelled Kavanaugh's name as “Cavenaugh" in the following paragraph.

Many noticed on Twitter, with some arguing that the gaffe highlights that many on the left were ready to oppose Trump's Supreme Court pick no matter who it was.

Agreed. Good thing he didn’t go with XX https://t.co/0acpQN6aw1

Women’s March does a PR blast with their shell of a SCOTUS story with no name - just an "XX" where the pick would be. Then send an UPDATE with Kav replacing the XX - no other language change.
What an unvarnished display of how the Left was going to be against any pick lock step pic.twitter.com/fxLa4sy0Mi

Got my first activist email opposing Kavanaugh, from Democracy for America. Spot the find/replace problem:
SCOTUS: DFA will fight Kavanaugh, says she "represents a generational assault on justice, freedom, core democratic values"

With a name like XX you'd think this judge would be more feminist. https://t.co/bl1jjvmmLw

The group corrected the errors later Monday evening – sending an”UPDATED” version that was identical, with "Kavanaugh" spelled correctly and in the place of the “XX.”
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said the left is going to "resist and obstruct" anything President Trump does and the Women's March's gaffe is just another example of it.
"They forgot to fill in the name. It's so brilliant," Conway said on "America's Newsroom" Tuesday.
