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.

Published

Since Election Day 2016, America has been in a state of mourning.

Donald Trump's Independence Day speeches offered more of the almost never-ending funeral ceremonies for America's democracy, dignity and decency. Instead of trumpet-like exhortations to American greatness and goodness on the country's birthday, Trump chose to deliver horribly off-key funeral dirges.

Published

on

Trump biographer Michael D'Antonio told CNN on Friday that he's been in regular contact with professional psychiatrists who believe President Donald Trump lacks the mental capabilities to handle his job.

During a panel discussion about the president's mental health, D'Antonio spilled the beans about what some experts are telling him they see in the president's behavior and speech patterns.
