Trump can't find any women to endorse his extremist Supreme Court pick

Trump canít find any women to endorse his extremist Supreme Court pick

When Trump announced his nomination of radical right-wing judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court on Tuesday, he sent reporters a list of 34 members of Congress who had issued statements praising Kavanaugh.

But there was one very telling problem with Trumpís list: not one of those 34 endorsers was a woman.

Vanita Gupta, president of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, pointed out the disparity Monday night on Twitter.

There are 107 women in Congress, 29 of whom are Republicans. Trump could have asked any one of them what they thought of his nominee. He either didnít bother, or didnít like what they had to say.

Itís an embarrassing omission for Kavanaugh, who made a big show Monday night of bragging about his supposed pro-woman credentials.
He praised his mother for inspiring him and mentioned that the majority of his law clerks have been women.

But Kavanaughís actual record as a judge is anything but pro-woman ó which might be one reason Trump couldnít find any women lawmakers willing to write rave reviews of his nominee.

As a D.C. Circuit Court judge, Kavanaugh infamously denied a 17-year-old immigrant access to abortion last year. His decision, which was later overruled, was as patronizing as they come. MORE...


SNIP
As the New York Times editorial board pointed out Monday, we still donít know the full extent of just how badly Kavanaugh will trample on Americansí basic rights, especially womenís rights.

But we know enough.


Kavanaugh is a right-wing stalwart who has been thoroughly vetted by right-wing groups determined to reshape the Supreme Court in their image.

He was nominated by Trump, who has repeatedly vowed that his Supreme Court nominee would overturn Roe v. Wade and end legal abortion.

And Kavanaugh praises women in the same breath as he praises Trump, who has been accused of sexual misconduct by 19 women ó and who apparently couldnít be bothered to ask a single woman serving in Congress what she thought of his nominee.

********


Wake up women.!!
As Anti-female-rights as Trump is, he would rather ignore all women, Dem or Repub.

Doubt he bothered to put a women's name on the reporter's list regardless of wanting their endorsement.
Trump treats ALL women as inferior.
Have no doubt that Trump would prefer that women weren't included in voting at election time either. (Wait for it..)

This is the total mindset of Trump.
Women's value & place in society is servile to men.

8. This was an endorsement for patriarchy. The no girls allowed club

 

If Kav is confirmed the status of women & girls will follow suit.
Expect to devolve.
There are other govts who hold the same view of females. That's who Trump aligns himself with.

The big old boys only club of the world.
Females are only allowed inside under conditions set by men.
