President Donald J. Trump has repeatedly indicated he will nominate a female to the Supreme Court and this is his opportunity to do so.

The way some Senate Democrats have treated past nominees by Republican presidents has been disgusting. In a mad frenzy, the Senators and their raging left-wing allies have used lies and innuendos in an attempt to derail the lawful process of putting federal judges on the bench.

Will the women of the Senate allow this to happen to a woman just because that woman is a Republican and the nominee of President Trump?

The filthy tactics of the hard left have so far only been used on male nominees.

The first time it was used was on Judge Robert Bork and they were successful at keeping Bork of our top court. The process created the verb “Borking” – meaning to destroy someone personally to keep them out of the judicial branch.

The borking of other GOP nominees has not worked. Today the Supreme Court has both Clarence Thomas and Brent Kavanagh sitting for life. There is no indication that another borking will be successful.

So what will the Democrat and Republican female senators do when President Trump nominates his first woman to SCOTUS if some of the men start to Bork her in the hearings? Will they sit back as Rhode Island Senator Sheldon Whitehouse asks her about her flatulence, as he did Justice Kavanagh? Will the female senators stay silent or will they join in the questioning of the nominee’s sex life?

The disgusting attacks that are coming will be an interesting test of the female members of the Senate.
