Conservatives turned out in force during the 2016 election to make sure Donald Trump was picking the next Supreme Court Justice.
That support paid off with the nominations of Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.
But Rush Limbaugh just dropped a truth bomb that will keep Kavanaugh up at night.
Conservatives thought Kavanaugh replacing Justice Anthony Kennedy tipped the court to the right for a generation.
While Kavanaugh is more reliable than Kennedy, Rush Limbaugh noted that was not necessarily the case.
That’s because Limbaugh pointed out that Chief Justice John Roberts is slowly moving left.
“That would be the Chief Justice John Roberts who is voting with the libs every case he can. He’s voting with the four liberal justices on that court every opportunity he can. Now, let’s go back and remember something that the chief justice decided to go public with. It’s been in the last couple of months. When Trump was talking about all the left-wing judges, the Clinton judges and the Obama judges that would stand up and try to stop either his travel ban or any other legal executive action or order, Justice Roberts went public, issued a statement, said he was righteously indignant and offended by that, that there aren’t Obama judges and that there aren’t Clinton judges and that aren’t Bush judges, that we have wonderful and great judges, and that’s the only kind of judges we’ve got.”
Roberts is a member-in-good-standing of the Washington establishment.
As such, he cares more about his reputation in elite liberal social circles than he does enacting conservative judicial policies.
Trump supporters saw this when he sided with Planned Parenthood in a key abortion case and came down on the side of open borders by ruling with the liberals to uphold an injunction against President Trump’s asylum policy changes.
Conservatives are right not to trust Roberts.
He was appointed by George W. Bush – who is the leader of the liberal wing of the Republican Party.
The only questions Trump supporters ask right now are how far will Roberts drift and how much damage will he do?
