An outbreak of nationwide outrage occurred late Monday night following President Trump’s announcement that he would be replacing renowned Justice Anthony Kennedy with Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
Leave it up to the Democratic senators who represent the states which President Trump dominated in 2016 to win the battle.
Prominent among the voices of lawmakers fighting against Trump’s controversial decision was Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren who tweeted out her outrage Tuesday morning:
“Brett Kavanaugh’s record as a judge and lawyer is clear: hostile to health care for millions, opposed to the CFPB & corporate accountability, thinks Presidents like Trump are above the law – and conservatives are confident that he would overturn Roe v. Wade. I’ll be voting no.” Warren wrote.

A polarizing figure, to say the least, Warren was met with a mixed response:
Is there any doubt that @RealDonaldTrump chose #Kavenaugh because he wrote that indicting a @POTUS doesn't serve the public interest? Congress should demand a promise that he will recuse himself from any deliberations Re: Trump. To do otherwise is pure #CORRUPTION

Elisabeth Warrens "record is clear" also.
Ms Warren is anti-American, a malcontent HATER, whom stands with the Oganization that has murdered millions of babies, Planned Parenthood
Ms Warren is FOR illegals, and HATES the hardworking taxpayers.
Mid-Terms? Vote OUT MS WARREN!

Thank you @SenWarren I hope you and the other uncompromised senators in congress will continue to vote no for any Trump nominations for SCOTUS until there is no longer any legal preceding involving the POTUS.

Warren had found herself in several heated debates with the president this week after he mocked her during a campaign-style rally last week.
Trump had mocked Warren by offering to pay her a million dollars to take a DNA test to prove her Native American ancestry.
“We’ll take that little kit and say — we have to do it gently because we are in the Me Too generation — and we will very gently take that kit, slowly toss it” to her, Trump said.
Warren immediately fired back at Trump over his attempts to bully her:
“Donald Trump is a bully, and he tries to bully me in order to shut me up,” Warren said, according to audio sent from a Warren campaign spokeswoman. “And he’s also trying to bully women all across this country. When he talks about ‘Me Too’ it isn’t just me Donald Trump’s going after; it’s every woman who speaks up. And he thinks we should sit down and shut up? It’s just not going to happen.”
