Rick Santorum

On Monday, former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) said on CNN’s Chris Cuomo that he wasn’t impressed with President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nomination Brett Kavanaugh.

He said that President Trump’s choice shows that he “bowed to the elite in Washington.”

“Well, I think that Donald Trump said he was going to energize the base with this pick. I don’t think he did that. I think a lot of the folks at the base really were sort of turned off to Brett Kavanaugh for the same reasons you discussed a few minutes ago,” Santorum said.

He continued: “He is from Washington. He is the establishment pick. He is the Bush pick. His father was a judge. His mother was a judge. It just seems like Trump in this case just bowed to the elite in Washington. I think that’s going to rub a lot of people the wrong way. I don’t think it’s going to be a game changer.”

As a fact-check, Kavanaugh’s father, Everett Kavanaugh Jr., is a retired attorney, and was never appointed as a judge.
