Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) argued on Thursday that no Democrats should vote against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh because he’s a “nice guy.”
In an interview with Fox & Friends on Thursday, Johnson was excited about the prospect of seating President Donald Trump’s latest Supreme Court pick.
“Just a really nice guy, a decent person, a person of integrity, a judge,” Johnson said of Kavanaugh. “What a concept. Let’s have someone — as he is written — a judge’s role is to interpret the law, not make policy, not make law.”
“But you have to see his eyes light up when he talks about his daughters, coaching their basketball team,” Johnson continued. “He’s just such a nice person. I don’t see how anybody could oppose his nomination.”
In fact, many experts believe that Kavanaugh will quickly rule to gut reproductive rights for women.
Ignoring the fact that many documents concerning Kavanaugh have been hidden by Republicans, Johnson insisted that Democrats have “more than enough information to make a decision.”
“This should be 100 to zero in terms of the vote,” Johnson opined.
“They don’t want to give President Trump a win,” Fox News host Steve Doocy said of Democrats.
“Democrats have turned these judicial nominations into the dog fight that these have become now,” Johnson complained. “This is Democrats that have turned it into such poisonous atmosphere when it comes to judicial nominations.”
Doocy reminded Johnson that “the Democrats are still steamed that Merrick Garland never got a vote.”
Before signing off, Johnson also expressed support for Trump’s decision to revoke the security clearance for former CIA Director John Brennan.
“I have no problem with it,” Johnson announced. “I’m kind of amazed that he didn’t pull it sooner. A security clearance is a privilege and I think John Brennan was abusing that using that privilege.”
“I mean, just take a look at his partisanship,” he added. “Coming out on cable news shows, and just the divisive attitude was taking.”

Black Georgia lawmaker accuses white man of demanding she ‘go back where she came from’ in supermarket diatribe
On Friday evening, Erica Thomas, and African-American Democratic lawmaker in the Georgia House of Representatives, was shopping at a Publix supermarket in Mableton when a white customer came up to her and shouted at her, telling her to "go back where you came from" — words echoing President Donald Trump's recent racist attacks on four Democratic congresswomen of color.
Thomas' crime? She had too many items for the express checkout line.
Today I was verbally assaulted in the grocery store by a white man who told me I was a lazy SOB and to go back to where I came from bc I had to many items in the express lane. My husband wasn’t there to defend me because he is on Active Duty serving the country I came from USA!
Trump offers to guarantee bail for rapper A$AP Rocky
US President Donald Trump offered Saturday to guarantee the bail of rapper ASAP Rocky, detained in Sweden on suspicion of assault following a street brawl.
Trump tweeted that he had spoken with Prime Minister Stefan Lofven, who he said gave assurances that the singer would be treated fairly.
"Likewise, I assured him that A$AP was not a flight risk and offered to personally vouch for his bail, or an alternative," Trump wrote.
There is no system of bail in Sweden.
Trump said he and Lofven had agreed to speak again over the next 48 hours.
Fans, fellow artists and US Congress members have campaigned for the 30-year-old artist, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, to be freed since his arrest on July 3 following the fight on June 30.
The best Civil War movie ever made finally gets its due
On Sunday and on July 24, Turner Classic Movies and Fathom Events are presenting big-screen showings in theaters nationwide of “Glory,” in honor of the 30-year anniversary of its release. The greatest movie ever made about the American Civil War, “Glory” was the first and, with the exception of Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln,” the only film that eschewed romanticism to reveal what the war was really about.
The story is told through the eyes of one of the first regiments of African American soldiers. Almost from the time the first shots were fired at Fort Sumter, S.C., the issue of black soldiers in the Union army was hotly debated. On Jan. 1, 1863, as the country faced the third year of the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, rapidly accelerating the process of putting black men into federal blue.
