Jen Kerns: Next SCOTUS Vacancy Will Create Political “Bloodbath”
Conservative commentator Jennifer Kerns said Democrats won’t hesitate to wage a chaotic political “bloodbath” to preserve their current four-seat standing on the Supreme Court.
“If you look at Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s health over the last couple of years, it is not good,” Kerns said during an interview with The Todd Starnes Show. “Many of us still wish her continued health … but her retirement may be coming sooner rather than later.”
“To pry that seat from the Democrats’ hands is going to be even more of a bloodbath than we saw in the Brett Kavanaugh hearings,” Kerns stated. Listen to her full interview here.
Kerns believes appointing judges to the Supreme Court and other high-level courts is one of the most important decisions a president can make, and that many proponents of religious liberty in 2016 were asking, “What kind of judges would [Donald Trump] appoint to the bench?”
Currently a contributor at The Hill, Kerns previously served as communications director of the California Republican Party.
“The majority of likely voters in America say if Trump gets impeached and removed that his removal will lead to violence in the streets,” Kerns told Starnes while describing a recent poll from Rasmussen Reports.
President Trump’s approval rating is increasing while the number of people who believe he committed a crime is declining, Kerns added, citing multiple polls.
“The American people, and the people who voted Donald Trump in, look at the impeachment proceedings alone as a direct assault on their right to vote,” she told Starnes.
Kerns said Democrats knew they couldn’t compete against Donald Trump in the 2016 cycle, so “they made impeachment his opponent.”
“It was the only way they could actually drag Donald Trump through the mud.”
