Trumps highly publicized list of potential Supreme Court nominees has given liberals plenty of time to craft a campaign against his pick.
Its the list that won him the presidency.
President Donald Trumps widely publicized list of potential Supreme Court nominees brought conservative doubters including evangelicals to the highly unconventional Republican nominees side. It prevented them from fleeing as the Access Hollywood tape threatened to tank Trumps campaign. And it reassured them throughout Trumps turbulent presidency, especially when he pulled from it to ensure Justice Neil Gorsuchs smooth ascent to the high court.
Now, its warding off the chaos that grips other facets of Trumps administration as he weighs another Supreme Court nominee.
Within moments of Justice Anthony Kennedy announcing his retirement, Trump told reporters hed be picking his replacement from the list, sending a clear signal that the often-rogue president understands how he cant risk alienating the conservative base heading first into midterms and then his own reelection bid.
But this time around, the list has become a liability, too, as swing-vote Republicans urge Trump to think bigger and Democrats use it to get a running start in their campaign against Trumps forthcoming pick.

Using it against him? Effectively, I bet. Not.
Was it the list? Or the Russians?
I get so confused.
Ha ha ha ha go away ash hole.
Amazing how much Trump has gotten done in the face of all of that chaos, with a Secretary of Defense whose call sign is "chaos."
Nothing like a whiff of sealed indictment in the morning to encourage the others.
Democrats will use everything against him.
yes a liability...we can use it against him... get someone a little more maluable .ahah I mean liberal...aahh I mean compromised...ahhh shit I mean some one the liberals can get to vote there way... .
theses people live in a fantasy world.
I don’t see any moderates or swing voters against the list of candidates. I see Leftists who are chit scared and desperate.
Typical article from Bullshitico.
Yes, the Democrats are using his “list” against him. Cause suddenly, we all hate that list and really really really hate Trump just like the media has told us we should./s
The left is insane and I’m not referring to mentally atm, but the failing over and over yet never changing strategy definition. They keep assuming the same things and following the standard methodologies. President Trump is always flowing and changing.
In the words of the immortal Bruce Lee, “Be water my friend”
Democrats use it to get a running start in their campaign against Trumps forthcoming pick.
Doesnt matter if they are standing at the finish line when the race starts. They can whine and throw tantrums, but the bottom line is the President is going to get who he wants.
Maybe this iwill be the catalyst that sends them COMPLETELY over the edge.
Then maybe will learn the answer to the question , how many laws can a dimocrat break before they are held accountable
More likely: "How many dead commies will it take to get them to finally shut their mouthes?
The Supreme Court was to be theirs to be weaponized against us under a Clinton regime. Abortion, 2A and illegal immigration are their bullets. We have the opportunity to make all three right in tune with the Constitution again. That’s MAGA.
“President Trump, by keeping the promises he made during the election threatens to undermine everything our political system stands for!” —Chuck Schumer (in my imagination)
The 2A is a big deal to me.
And, thankfully, every one of the finalists seems to be rock solid there.
If we can get a court decision that rolls back the CA, NY, NJ, and MD insanity Trump may win one of those states.
The democrat party is today the party of the hard violent political left. Actually it has been for twenty years but the leaders at the top still were able to pass it off as just a little bit left of the Republican party but at the same time would say, “We really care about the people and the Republicans do not.”
The facade of the Democrat Party is now gone. It is hard left socialist quasi Marxist. Actually, the young Turks of the left in the Democrat Party are the face of the Democrat Party today. They are killing this once honorable opposition party.
If you are the only Republican left in Maxine Water’s district, please vote for her. Each time she opens her mouth the Republicans gain votes. I love “Mad Max Maxine.”
