On Wednesday, Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced he plans to retire in a letter to President Donald Trump.

Kennedy vacating his Supreme Court seat gives President Trump an opportunity to further stack SCOTUS and promote his policy agenda.

The Internet's reaction was swift and brutal: some people pointed out that Kennedy had hardly been a paragon of progressivism during his tenure. Others prophesied doom.
