- Trump WILL Fill SCOTUS Seat Despite Threat to ‘BLOW UP The Entire System’ from CNN’s Don Lemon, White House Vows
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany pointed to Don Lemon’s “threat” to “blow up the entire system” if Donald Trump appoints a new Supreme Court judge, as showing the “difference between Democrats and Republicans.”
“Don Lemon said the quiet part out loud last night,” McEnany told reporters on Tuesday, before highlighting the CNN anchor’s comments, which have drawn major pushback from conservatives. “He said this: ‘we’re going to have to blow up the entire system’ if the president does his job as outlined in the constitution.”
McEnany argued Lemon’s statement shows “Democrats cannot win on precedent” and therefore must take to a “search and destroy” strategy.
“That’s the difference between Republicans and Democrats, we fight to protect the system, we fight to protect the Constitution when Democrats say outright, ‘we are going to blow up the system, the entire system because we do not get our way,’” she continued.
Trump will proceed “undaunted by Democrat threats,” McEnany added, and will “appoint the next Supreme Court justice” and “fill that seat.”
