Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, April 30, 2020

As the Senate prepares to return to Washington next week, the focus will be not on the coronavirus but instead on judicial nominations that have long been a priority for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell -- one that has been sidelined in recent weeks as Congress has scrambled to react to the pandemic.

Not a surprise. Appointing judges was the big prize in 2016. Everything else donald has done has been by executive order and just be undone the same way by the next president.

McConnell literally makes me puke.

McConnell: cementing his legacy during his final few months in office. When the going gets REALLY tough in the Bluegrass State, Mitch will be shown the door...

I couldn't agree more. I actually despise him and I try to see the good and be understanding in even people I totally disagree with. He has no redeeming traits - such a loathsome creature.

He looks rather sickly.

Senators should socially distance themselves from him just be safe.

His gruesome condition might be contagious.

He's one of the few people alive who's passing will make the world a noticeably brighter place. Like a Jedi feeling a disturbance in the force, normal people will feel that that blackhole of disgustingness is gone from reality.

As a budget saving measure, the next POTUS will have to shrink the federal bench by about 30% to get rid of so many of these highly unqualified political hacks, last in-first out. Then as the economy improves, we can go back to normal staffing.

They never cared if we die. It's just to enrich themselves in money and power.

You don't get it. We, the workers, are expendable. It's only the "Job Creators" (i.e., investors/bankers) that are valuable.

It's called "Capitalism", not "workerism".

Or perhaps, more correctly, "Laborism".

Not Humanism.

Of course it is. Trump never knows when he's going to need another judge who owes him a favor. In Trump's case, there's no such thing as too many of those.
