Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh went off on Justice Brett Kavanaugh on Monday, claiming the newest Supreme Court Justice was caving to liberal media pressure.
And it’s a betrayal of conservative principles.
The recent rulings have many conservatives very nervous, Limbaugh said — and with good reason.
As President Donald Trump’s second Supreme Court nominee, Kavanaugh was confirmed by the Republican majority in the Senate on the promise he’d be a constitutional conservative and help secure a conservative majority in the Supreme Court for decades.
So far, he’s turning out to be liberal.
“Brett Kavanaugh has been signing with the leftists on the Supreme Court,” Limbaugh warned Monday. “He’s been siding with the liberal majority on, I forget, but two or three previous cases, and he did it again today.”
“Justice Brett Kavanaugh sided with the liberal wing of the Supreme Court on Monday, writing an opinion against Apple that ruled the tech company can be sued over high prices in their App Store,” the conservative radio host said.
Limbaugh later said: “Kavanaugh’s stance with the liberal wing of the court was striking. President Trump’s second nominee to the high court faced fierce Democratic opposition during his confirmation process, over sexual misconduct… Justice Neil Gorsuch, Trump’s other pick, wrote the dissent for four conservative justices in the Apple case. The consumers’ complaint against Apple is the kind of case earlier high court rulings said was not allowed under federal laws that prohibit unfair control of a market, Gorsuch wrote.”
It’s the opposite of what Kavanaugh was supposed to be, Limbaugh lamented.
He was supposed to be more conservative that Gorsuch. So far that seems to not be the case — and he has a theory why.
Limbaugh says he’s caving to the liberal media pressure from his controversial confirmation hearing.
“You go back to the Federalist Society, Kavanaugh was the best of them all,” Limbaugh said. “Better than Gorsuch, more conservative, more pure — this, that, and the other thing. But this is the second or third time now that he has aligned with the leftists.”
“I’ll tell you what I think: I think all that [Christine] Blasey Ford stuff worked!” he said.
“This just strikes me as so typical,” he later said, then walked through what he thought was Kavanaugh’s thought process: “Okay. I’m gonna show them they were wrong. I’m gonna show them that they were wrong about. I’m gonna show ’em I can be fair — and the way you show a liberal that you’re fair is agree with them.”
