What's awesome about this is it's a sane Republican making this move rather than a Democrat.

If anything, the judges are our most pressing danger as minorities. A far right court would wreck havoc on any minority group including the neurologically different and disabled.

He'll also have 2 Indies (Bernie Sanders and Angus King) on his side, as well as Susan Collins, and probably McCain, Heller, Sasse, Murkowski.

That should be enough to block any Trump nominee unless you get a couple of dems who decide to "go high".
