‘This fascist govt is not valid’: The internet erupts in rage after 'stolen' court upholds Muslim ban
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch (Twitter)

The U.S. Supreme Court upheld President Donald Trump's discriminatory Muslim ban -- and social media users raged at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for stealing a seat to influence the election.

Justice Neil Gorsuch joined the conservative 5-4 majority to uphold a travel ban ordered by the president who appointed him targeting several Muslim-majority countries, and Twitter users blasted McConnell and other GOP leaders for corrupting the constitutional process to aid Trump.

Obama had appointed Merrick Garland to the seat held by the late Antonin Scalia, who died in February 2016 -- nine months before the presidential election -- but McConnell announced about an hour later that he would refuse to consider any nominee by the Democratic president.
