The left’s meltdown over the retirement of Supreme Court Justice Kennedy is still playing out. Michelle Goldberg of the New York Times said on MSNBC this week that Kennedy betrayed the country. Can you even imagine thinking this way?

NY Times Columnist: Justice Kennedy ‘Betrayed the Country’
New York Times columnist Michelle Goldberg argued Tuesday that retiring Supreme Court justice Anthony Kennedy is helping President Donald Trump “destroy” America.
Goldberg said Democrats should try to “basically shut down the functioning of the Senate” to stop Trump’s eventual nominee from being confirmed, but admitted they had little hope of pulling that off. Since Democrats are likely to “get run over by this sick juggernaut” in Senate proceedings, Goldberg said the ultimate blame lies with Kennedy for retiring.
“It’s really unfair to blame the Democrats,” Goldberg said. “I mean, this is Kennedy betraying the country.”
Republican strategist Susan Del Percio, who also sparred with Goldberg over Sen. Susan Collins’ (R., Maine) character, told Goldberg not to “demean people” by calling his retirement a betrayal.
“He’s 81 years old and served 30 years, he’s not betraying the country,” Del Percio said. “We should thank him for his service. Why do you have to demean people in making your point?”
Goldberg said Kennedy abdicated his responsibility to resist Trump and his allies “destroying the country.”
