‘Good Morning America’ warns of SCOTUS ‘war’ if Kennedy retires in Trump era


Recommended Posts


Rumors of Supreme Court Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement on Monday sparked warnings of political “war” on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
“GMA’s” George Stephanopoulos, Terry Moran and Robin Roberts told viewers that Washington lawmakers would go apoplectic if President Trump were tasked with nominating a second Supreme Court justice following the appointment of Neil Gorsuch.
Justice Kennedy, 80, is the longest-serving member of the court.
“This would be huge, Robin,” Mr. Moran said, the media watchdog MRC reported. “Justice Kennedy — this in many ways is the Kennedy Court, he’s the swing vote for more than a decade on crucial issues, abortion, affirmative action, the civil rights of gay and lesbian Americans, including marriage. He has been the crucial vote. If he decides to retire, and there are signs that he would, it would be a war for this court like nothing seen in the past 30 years since the nomination of Robert Bork was defeated and Justice Kennedy took his seat.”
Ms. Roberts concurred, which prompted Mr. Stephanopoulos to issue his own warning.:snip:
