There were a lot of major letdowns in Trump’s appointments…let’s be honest. We all love and appreciate him, but some of his “hires” were not so great, and that’s okay to say.
After all, he was an outsider, not a sleazy politician, and a lot of the people he listened to were conniving backstabbers.
Trust me, I get it,
Some of the worst hires that come to mind are Jeff Sessions, William Barr, Mike Pence, and Chris Wray…but the ones who have not been talked about as much are Trump’s SCOTUS picks: Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett.
Now again, it’s fair to note that Trump was following a long-standing conservative tradition of allowing The Federalist Society and The Heritage Foundation to suggest their “top candidates,” and clearly, that system is no longer working for whatever reason – too establishment, perhaps – and we should look at other avenues.
In the meantime, people have been doing the math and it’s astounding just how many times Kavanaugh and Coney Barrett have sided with the liberal court.
As it stands now, these two justices have a worse record than turncoat John Roberts.

How often conservative justices joined liberals this Supreme Court term

This is beyond disheartening, it’s actually infuriating.
When you think about the struggle conservatives went through to support both Kavanaugh and ACB, only to have them literally slap us in the face, is rather unsettling.
And it’s not just conservatives who are upset – Trump is too, He recently sounded off on Kavanaugh, calling him a “disappointment.”
“Where would he be without me?” Trump tells Wolff of Kavanaugh, who had a lifetime appointment to the U.S. Court of Appeals prior to his ascension to the highest court in the land. “I saved his life. He wouldn’t even be in a law firm. Who would have had him? Nobody. Totally disgraced. Only I saved him.”
During Kavanaugh’s lengthy confirmation fight — which included accusations of sexual assault, questions over large debts allegedly accrued purchasing baseball tickets and belligerent testimony from Kavanaugh in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee — Trump says that “practically every senator called me … and said, ‘Cut him loose, sir, cut him loose. He’s killing us.’”
“I can’t do that,” Trump says he replied. But now the former president seems dismayed by what he perceives as Kavanaugh’s lack of loyalty.
Clearly, Kavanaugh has no sense of loyalty or honor to his s0-called “conservative beliefs.”
He and Coney Barrett are turning out to be a huge disappointment and might actually be worse than Roberts when this is all said and done.
