In a weirdly lackadaisical presser, Trump unveiled his thoughts on who he would appoint to SCOTUS should an opening occur — and it should be so terrifying to liberals and even moderates, I can't help but think this whole gambit came off as a ready-made #BidenHarris2020 ad.
First, Ted Cruz is utterly reviled, so when his name was mentioned, the planet cringed. I guess this is what you get for continuing to kiss Trump's ample tush long after he calls your wife ugly.
Then there's Tom Cotton of Arkansas, who boldly tweeted that Roe v. Wade must go once Trump mentioned him as a SCOTUS appointee. Great, so a vote for Trump is a vote against reproductive rights — and liberals don't have to make this charge as some abstract concept. It's right there. It's. A. Tweet.
Let me sum up this presser for those of you who are not Trump cultists: he is terrified— Tom Nichols (@RadioFreeTom) September 7, 2020
Now, as helpfully scary as these names are for our side, the reality is — if Ginsburg or anyone else were to die or retire suddenly between now and the moment Biden is (hopefully sworn in), then Cruz and Cotton and others are ready to go. Trump and some senators have already said they would have NO problem rushing a confirmation of a SCOTUS judge, even if it were to occur after a possible Trump presidential loss.
Imagine that. Paging Merrick Garland! (But enough about Merrick, because if Biden gets into office, and if he does it with enough Democrats in the Senate, we will be wanting wildly liberal judges, not decent compromise picks.)

Chris Evans — an outspoken liberal — is trying to launch a political site, so he apparently interviewed the truly odious Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), granting him a pic-with alongside his daughter in the process.
Whatever you're doing, Chris, it was not worth it.
But interesting how pro-Hollywood the anti-Hollywood crowd is when they get to bask in the starshine.
Beto O'Rourke announced he is running for president yesterday, using a Vanity Fair cover story to do so ...
Wow. I’ve never seen anything like this on the Senate floor.pic.twitter.com/PJGUdTuqY5— Brian Tyler Cohen (@briantylercohen) January 24, 2019
I've complained about the overuse of the word destroys in modern reporting, but Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colorado) did just that to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), calling him out for his “crocodile tears” over the furloughed government workers harmed by the shutdown.
