Republicans Excited To Have Supreme Court Majority Like They Had When 'Roe V. Wade' Decided

U.S.—As President Trump prepares to select his nominee to replace Justice Kennedy on the Supreme Court, Republicans across the country confirmed they were “really excited” to finally have a decisive majority of Supreme Court justices appointed by Republican presidents, just like they did when Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973.

“At long last, we’ll have a solid majority of justices who were chosen by Republican presidents, so we can overturn this awful decision made by a majority of justices who were chosen by Republican presidents,” a Fox News consultant said in a daytime program Monday. “What could possibly go wrong?”

“Getting a conservative majority is our only hope to reverse the unconstitutional decision made by a conservative majority,” he added.

At publishing time, conservatives across the nation had called for GOP members to make sure the party holds on to the House and Senate during mid-terms, so they can overturn the funding of Planned Parenthood passed by a GOP-controlled House and Senate.
