Starting Monday, Hillary Clinton Has Tweeted a New Reason We Must #StopKavanaugh

She refuses to be distracted.

While the rest of the country finds itself scandalized by the publication of a New York Times op-ed from an anonymous senior official in the Trump administration who confirmed s/he stays on board to shield the United States from President Donald Trump’s worst impulses, Hillary Clinton has not tweeted about Trump at all. In fact, she’s remained committed to one goal: Making sure Brett Kavanaugh, the president’s nomination for the Supreme Court, is not confirmed.

MONDAY:

On Monday, which, was also Labor Day, Clinton began laying out a slew of reasons why Kavanaugh should not take a seat on the nation’s highest court, particularly based on his record on workers’ rights.

She pointed out that the Supreme Court, under the leadership of Chief Justice John Roberts, has “dealt some big blows to workers and unions in the last few years,” adding that a Kavanaugh confirmation would only cement a hard-right majority.

Among other things, Clinton warns, the court has “recently granted corporations the right to deny workers reproductive health care and made it harder for workers to sue businesses,” rulings which emphasize the “disparity in power between corporations and workers.” Kavanaugh, with his record, would “further” that trend.

She closed with a call to action for her supporters to call their Senators to #StopKavanaugh:

TUESDAY:

The next day, Clinton took to Twitter to make the case that Kavanaugh would also threaten the future of the Affordable Care Act, particularly pre-existing condition protections.

And once again, she pointed to why Kavanaugh’s record should concern us all.

WEDNESDAY:

On Wednesday, Clinton addressed concerns that Kavanaugh would overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark abortion rights case.
