    Only need the senate for confirmations.

    This is an existential crisis for America.

    Surely McConnell will block any appointment.

    Just like he did with Garland.

    Because it's an election year and the American public should really have a say in this appointment.

    Surely.

    House plays no role in judge appoinments, that's all the White House and the Senate.

    Personally, instead of thinking about how to catch McConnell in a "gotcha", I hope people are thinking about how to make McConnell feel afraid of doing this.

    This is bad. It is gonna be super fun not having civil liberties for like at minimum another twenty years.

    And like no there's jack shit any democrat can do to stop Trump from making the literal worst pick possible.

    This is just kind of bad with no light at the end of the tunnel.

    We'd kinda have to have control of more than one seat of government to do that.

    yeah essentially if the democrats don't take all seats of government next election, it'll be the end of civil and women's rights and more akin to the US of the late 1800s.

    yeah but that requires

    a. winning the election, overwhelmingly enough to have a solid grasp on both houses of the legislature as well as the white house
    b. actually getting the elected democratic party to do it.

    Again, I don't really wanna stress people out but this is, in fact, what I'd qualify as an unqualified shitshow.
