What Does The Kavanaugh Nomination Mean?

We all know what Trump wants protection from one thing, but why?


Last week, President Trump nominated Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court following the retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy, a crucial swing vote in the highest court in the land. The New York Times has reduced the potential replacement as "a former Bush aide." Liberal leaders in the Senate, such as Elizabeth Warren, are protesting the Supreme Court nominee.

Chuck Schumer thinks Trump picked Kavanaugh in order to protect himself from the Mueller investigation. This is particularly dangerous. According to the 2009 Minnesota Law Review, Kavanaugh asserts that sitting presidents should have any criminal investigations against them, as well as any other lawsuits brought upon them, to be deferred until they leave office.

Kavanugh's rationale for this is:

"The decisions a President must make are hard and often life-or-death, the pressure is relentless, the problems arise from all directions, the criticism is unremitting and personal, and at the end of the day only one person is responsible."

Yeah, it must be that hard for this particular president to wake up at 6am, everyday to watch his Fox and Friends and have his Tweets be read out on the state-run television.

It must also be EXCRUCIATINGLY difficult to have your official day start at 11am, and have your daily briefings be reduced from--no wait, you don't need daily intelligence briefings because you're "like a smart person, okay?" despite advisories against that from your predecessor? If you're such a "smart person," then I guess that decisions that this job entails are not THAT hard to make.

Or...oh, I get it. It must be that hard to have a safe space of regularly positive news being filtered into your ears. I guess the only reason for that is to prevent you from Tweeting uncontrollably and opening YOURSELF up to more criticism? I guess the only reason why you Tweet more than you talk is because you have a Big Mac and a bucket or two of the Colonel's famous recipe stuffed in your mouth so you can't.

Get out of here with that nonsense. Former Presidents like Barack Obama and even George W. Bush had more to deal with than you. And the latter didn't have the luxury of social media to fall back on when things got rough in the latter years of his presidency. He stood up and took it like any true American President and Patriot would do. Oh, and he was president during one of our nation's most difficult times, 9/11.

Barack Obama had to pull this economy outta the gutter when he took over in 2009. In the first few years of his presidency, he not only was tasked with stopping the bleeding of the Late 2000's recession, he had to find some way to end the War in Iraq and took down the most evil man in not only American's eyes, but the world's eyes, in May 2011.

We're still awaiting your first major move as president, Mr. Trump.

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

Lorelai Gilmore and I are kindred spirits.

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

When I was in high school, I was the occasional coffee drinker, if you could call it that. I would drink Starbucks frappuccinos and iced mocha drinks, which were more like snacks than coffee, BUT they had coffee in them, so I said I drank coffee. I progressed from my love of “snack drinks" to a more general appreciation of coffee, and would have a cup of coffee once a week or so. My “cup of coffee" would consist of a little coffee and a lot of cream and sugar, but it was coffee nonetheless. Then I started college.
