When it became clear that Brett Kavanaugh had been confirmed in a 50-48 vote to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy as the ninth justice on the Supreme Court – and even before then – liberals on Twitter absolutely imploded.
And it. Was. Hilarious. Here are just a few of our favorites.
Here’s Nancy Lee Grahn, saying she was so distraught over Kavanaugh that she physically pulled her car over and wept openly until a random woman showed up and cried with her.
Just pulled my car over & screamed gutturally for a good 2 min & then cried for 10 more. A Latino woman driving by stopped & asked me to open my door and then hugged me. She said ” I know. “ I would like to extend the same to you here. I know.— Nancy Lee Grahn (@NancyLeeGrahn) October 5, 2018
Here’s Alissa Milano, whining that Trump has confirmed dozens of judges – which is literally part of his job as president.
Kavanaugh is the 69th judge trump has confirmed. That’s an absolutely insane number. This is all happening quietly and no one is realizing it.— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) October 6, 2018
We’ve all seen how important the courts have been in stopping trump’s most hateful and harmful policies.

People should be fucking terrified and outraged. I sure as hell am.
We need to take back our power by taking back the Senate and the House in November. It is the only way out of this mess.
Here’s Kathy Griffin, for once so speechless she couldn't even drum up any profanity.
What a terrible day in American history.— Kathy Griffin (@kathygriffin) October 6, 2018
ThinkProgress’ Ian Millhiser took a swing at the entire Senate for not voting his way.
Yes. It is indeed true that the Senate is a malapportioned hellhole that should embarrass and ashame all Americans, https://t.co/QkKH2iuprt— Ian Millhiser (@imillhiser) October 6, 2018
Stephen King – a white man – blaming white men.
Tody’s Score: White men behaving badly, 1. Justice, 0.— Stephen King (@StephenKing) October 6, 2018
All of NARAL losing their minds.
At every step of this sham process, the GOP has sent the clear message to women that we don’t matter. They want to gut Roe & criminalize abortion, repeal the ACA, roll back LGBTQ rights & decimate the Voting Rights Act & affirmative action. Kavanaugh is their means to this end. pic.twitter.com/E9kmieYVbl— NARAL (@NARAL) October 6, 2018
Here’s Harvard Tom Nichols pitching a hissy fit.
Kavanaugh's supporters now have what they wanted, and they feel so good about it they're going to spend weeks explaining to the rest of us why they feel good about it and why we should feel good about it too and goddamn it why won't we let them feel good about it and on and on.— Tom Nichols (@RadioFreeTom) October 6, 2018
And here's Harry Leslie Smith claiming Kavanaugh broke America.
Sadly, not only has #Kavanaugh been confirmed today but it has also confirmed that America is now broken beyond repair.— Harry Leslie Smith (@Harryslaststand) October 6, 2018
If you think they're mad now, just imagine the freakout when the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade.
