On Wednesday Justice Anthony Kennedy announced he would be retiring from the SCOTUS at the end of July. Given that Kennedy has typically been a key swing vote on the highest court in the land, it was unsurprising that the Left immediately flew into an unconsolable frenzy.

For your viewing enjoyment, here is a curation of some of the hottest takes and the saltiest tears.

 

Nazi uniform or death camps…boy, that’s a real Sophie’s Choice! I don’t look great in brown but I do like camping.

This is the fight of our lives! Well, at least of our lives this year! Or our lives this month…well, it’s at least the fight of our day. What immigrant children?

No, baby girl…YOU are racing to find out about collusion with Russia. The rest of us are watching Trump’s agenda fall into place piece-by-piece while you obsess about an imaginary scandal.

Uh…the vote happened. This is what was on the line and the American public voted for Trump to have this privilege. Say it with me…ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES!

Literally everything, you guys. EVERYTHING! LITERALLY!

Yes, the United States legal system is the Southwest Airlines of democracy. Don’t sit in the window seat!

And now, here is a reasoned and thought-provoking analysis of the Kennedy retirement from Ian Millhiser.

And another intriguing, enlightening commentary…

So far there’s no proof that this person’s wish isn’t already true.

I don’t understand. Do we want RBG to serve forever or do we want a cap on SCOTUS terms? Or maybe we just want a cap on SCOTUS terms when a Republican is president. Personally, I prefer a SCOTUS Hunger Games. Also, this person is an idiot…and I mean that in a bad way.

NRA…DRINK! Also, I don’t know what it means to vote Orange…is that like some kind of terror-alert code?

I actually agree.

*sigh*

Here’s Comedy Central being funny, in that desperate, suicidal kinda way.

Of course, nothing is really settled until the celebrity class weighs in. Also, I hear Trump’s sister is pretty cool. Couldn’t hurt to add her to the list!

2 for 1 at Costco!

Caps are the key to making any salient point.

Handmaid’s Tale…DRINK!

More caps…must be serious.

And then there was this hilarious moment, when the DNC got the news right in the middle of a committee meeting. This is what it sounds like when doves cry.

And finally, many thanks to HuffPo for putting together some clips of the late night talk show circuit.

Perhaps if the Left didn’t willingly give so much power over their day-to-day lives to the government they wouldn’t have to work themselves into an exhaustive frenzy every time the judiciary shifted.
