Hollywood stars are experts in their field for drama but their freakout over President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee may be Oscar-worthy.
The liberal elites in Hollywood reacted to Trump’s announcement of Judge Brett Kavanaugh as his Supreme Court pick with epic hysteria, from warnings of “the first American dictatorship” to a “move back to Medieval Values, Shariah Law even.”
Behold the flood:
OK Ladies and Gentlemen who care for and respect ladies, it is official. The move back to Medieval Values, Shariah Law even, where old, bitter men get to tell women what is best for their bodies, lives, and well being is as done a deal as this is Twitter. Unless we say NO! NO!

It’s official. Trump, who is now under investigation for obstruction of justice and conspiring with an enemy to destroy Democracy, has selected the judges who could rule on whether he can be forced to testify, be indicted or pardon himself. Autocracy here we come. VOTE!!!

Even CONSIDERING this nomination will cement the first American dictatorship #KavaNO

PLEASE we must send the Senate a clear message: This country cannot afford a justice on the Supreme Court who is likely to support the gun lobby’s extreme, absolutist interpretation of the Second Amendment. Message your Senators now: https://t.co/0nhP1wVpch @Everytown @MomsDemand

A senator once called Brett Kavanaugh “the Forrest Gump of Republican politics.” Which I think makes Merrick Garland “the Cast Away of Democratic politics.”

Even former stars and would-be politicians chimed in, like liberal New York gubernatorial candidate and former “Sex and the City” star, Cynthia Nixon who called for the minions to “fight back and enshrine abortion.”
With Donald Trump’s pick for #SCOTUS threatening to reverse #RoevWade, it’s more important than ever to fight back and enshrine abortion and access to contraception. Join us and @VoteChoice for a rally to #SaveRoe in Union Square tomorrow at 4:30 PM: https://t.co/o0u4qgCgU8

As if Trump’s nominee to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy was not enough to send Hollywood into a safe space, the president’s imminent arrival to participate at the NATO summit in Brussels left some simply apologizing to the world.
We understand, many of us Americans also see the structuring of the New World Order with China, Russia and the US against our greatest longstanding allies and we are horrified.

Kavanaugh, the “trifecta of terrible,” has only just been nominated, but judging from the stream of hate and panic from Hollywood elites, one has to wonder if the hysteria can be maintained.
Brett Kavanaugh, in just on just one case, attacked women’s rights, healthcare, and immigration.
He is the trifecta of terrible, and he must never sit on the Supreme Court.

Contradicting himself as a partisan lackey all by himself – just lay his job record against his legal positions – who you gonna believe -him or your lying eyes -worked for Ken star- but a president shouldn’t be indicted –
Trump picked his very own Supreme con https://t.co/nYeWF3G0rq

What else do you need to know about Brett Kavanaugh other than he worked with Ken Starr to impeach Clinton, worked to help W win Bush v Gore Supreme Court case, and worked in both Bush White Houses. Recommended to Bush to put Alito and Roberts on the Court. He must be stopped.

See your nominator who’s the subject of criminal investigation.
And Merrick Garland should never leave Democrat lips. Never. https://t.co/tbrBEOiPhu

The first question every Democratic Senator should ask Kavanaugh:
“Will you recuse yourself from any case involving whether The President can be subject to criminal investigation, required to testify, or indicted?” https://t.co/lnGR0jQ3dO

NO VOTE until after midterms AND until after the Mueller investigation pic.twitter.com/MzHTolVcT2

I don’t know what kind of a judge Brett Kavanaugh is but he and all the other white and in many cases old folks at the event looked so out of date, so out of sync with what the world is becoming. What the world needs to become. A last gasp of a way of life we’re past. Sad for US.

WHY DOES ANY ONE TALK ABOUT THIS PRESIDENT AS IF THE FACT THAT HE’S CARRYING OUT A PUTIN-ASSIGNED CHORE LIST ISN’T AS OBVIOUS AS THE BLUENESS OF THE CLEAR SKY? https://t.co/x76w30V5yI
