Fox's Napolitano: Kavanaugh 'the heart and soul of the DC establishment' - FU Drumph!

7/10/18

Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano said Tuesday he was "disappointed" in President Trump nominating Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, calling the 53-year-old federal appeals court judge "the heart and soul of the D.C. establishment.”

The commentary comes the day after Trump's prime-time announcement of the selection of Kavanaugh in a made-for-TV event at the White House, sparking what promises to be a scathing confirmation battle.

"I’m disappointed in the president because this is not the type of person that he said he would pick. Justice [Neil] Gorsuch was," Napolitano, a former judge, said on "Fox & Friends" when asked by co-host Pete Hesgeth if Kavanaugh was a so-called "swamp pick."

"This person is at the heart and soul of the D.C. establishment against whom the president railed," he added. "Now, look, that’s just my criticism. He is pro-life. He is pro-gun. He is pro-police, which rankles civil libertarians. He is also pro-ObamaCare."

"He is also, 'Well, an infant might have the right to abortion. An infant immigrant might have the right to abortion.' He is, 'We can impeach the president if he lies to the public.' He is, 'The president can do no wrong.' These are not my words. These are words he said throughout his career. One of the takes on him is he can be reckless with his words," Napolitano concluded.

The president reportedly watches "Fox & Friends" on a regular basis and has praised the program on Twitter on several occasions.

Kavanaugh, 53, is Trump's second Supreme Court nomination in less than 18 months, following the successful selection of Gorsuch, who was confirmed in April 2017.

Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his plans to resign last month. His last day will be July 31.

Kennedy, 81, was nominated by President Reagan in 1988.
