Mike Huckabee says the Supreme Court's ruling that government workers cannot be forced to contribute to labor unions that represent them in collective bargaining, and the news that swing-vote Justice Anthony Kennedy is returning is a punishing blow for Democrats.
"Wednesday was the last day of the Supreme Court's session, and if you thought the Democrats were screaming and melting down like the Wicked Witch of the West at a water park, the final day brought a double whammy from which they may never recover," the former Arkansas governor and two-time GOP presidential candidate said on his website.
"Democrats, especially celebrities, responded to the 1-2 punch with language that made Martin Scorsese's 'Mean Streets' sound like 'Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood.'
"I expect them to try to block Trump's SCOTUS nominee with any possible excuse: he can't pick a Justice while he's under investigation (and they'll drag out the investigation for eight years if they have to); citing the Republicans' refusal to vote on confirming Merrick Garland (irrelevant since Trump still has over two years to go in his first term); and the ever-popular "But he's literally worse than Hitler!"'
