[Ed. – She made this observation in July, but no doubt it still holds true for her.]
It was only a matter of time before failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton weighed in on President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, and it appears to have been time she spent working on a top notch critique: that Kavanaugh could return the United States to the days of slavery.
Speaking to the American Federation of Teachers Friday night, Clinton warned of “devastating consequences” if Kavanaugh is confirmed to the bench.
“Let me say a word about the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court,” Clinton said in her speech. “This nomination holds out the threat of devastating consequences for workers rights, civil rights, LGBT rights, women’s rights — including those to make our own health decisions.”
“It is a blatant attempt by this administration to shift the balance of the Court for decades and to reverse decades of progress,” Clinton continued.
And that’s where she landed on her new strategy of attack: warning of a return to the agrarian pre-Civil War America.
“I used to worry that they [the Republicans] wanted to turn the clock back to the 1950s. Now I worry they want to turn it back to the 1850s,” Clinton said.
