One thing that made Liberals lose their minds about losing the 2016 election was the realization that they wouldn’t be able to pack the Supreme Court with progressive judges. They hate the idea of a Supreme Court which interprets the United States Constitution as written.
Joe Biden proved this point recently by lamenting the appointment of Neil Gorsuch by Trump.

Guess What Trump Accomplishment Biden Most Fears
Former Vice President Joe Biden called Justice Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court the most dangerous accomplishment of the Trump presidency, Wednesday.
Speaking for over an hour on Pod Save America, Biden acknowledged his appointment did not change the ideological distribution of power on the high court, but lamented that Gorsuch’s confirmation entrenched originalist views on the high court for decades.
“The single most damaging thing thus far, short of what may happen to our foreign policy, was Gorsuch going to the court,” the former vice president said.
He elsewhere accused the president and Senate Republicans of “prostituting democratic processes” given the year-long blockade of Judge Merrick Garland‘s nomination to the vacancy occasioned by the late Justice Antonin Scalia’s death.
Rumors are swirling in Washington that Justice Kennedy is going to retire from the Supreme Court this summer. If that actually happens, expect the left to go nuts.
Trump has already shown that he has every intention of appointing another constitutional conservative.
