Mark Levin: Barrett, Kavanaugh are ‘cowards’ for turning down election cases

Donald Trump “fought like hell” to get Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett on the Supreme Court bench, but they paid him back by spitting on him and his supporters, according to Mark Levin.

The radio host and Fox News star was left hopping mad at the two “cowards” after they joined the Supreme Court’s liberal justices in refusing to consider questions about the use of mail-in ballots in the 2020 election, the Washington Examiner reported Tuesday.

Exposing Trump SCOTUS picks

Republicans in Pennsylvania went to the Supreme Court before the November election to challenge a move by the state’s Supreme Court to allow mail-in ballots to be received three days late, even with no clear postmark. The matter was never resolved.

With the election over, the U.S. Supreme Court again refused to consider the case and other related suits on Monday, with Justices Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, and Neil Gorsuch dissenting, and Justices Kavanaugh and Barrett siding with the liberals.

Levin, for his part, said that Supreme Court had failed to uphold the Constitution out of fear of what liberals at The New York Times and The Washington Post might say about them.

Speaking Monday, he also singled out Kavanaugh and Barrett as ungrateful “cowards” who betrayed Trump and his supporters, even after they stuck with them through difficult confirmation fights.

“Cowards, absolute cowards,” Levin said, according to the Examiner. “There’s your Justice Coney, there’s your Justice Kavanaugh. You fought like hell for them, and then they spit on you.”

Levin echoes Thomas

Kavanaugh’s nomination was nearly derailed by surprise accusations of sexual assault that turned into a scorched-earth political cataclysm, but Trump defended the judge and he was narrowly confirmed — and his career was salvaged from almost certain destruction.

Barrett’s confirmation was much less dramatic, but was still controversial as Democrats likened her to a shadowy far-right figure and Trump sycophant.

In December, Levin had similarly said that the Supreme Court failed when they refused to consider challenges to the election results. With the contest now settled, however, the court has shown no more interest in addressing lingering concerns about election integrity shared by many Americans.

Levin’s anger was shared by Justice Thomas, who said the high court had abandoned its duty to instill voter confidence in their elections.

“The decision to leave election law hidden beneath a shroud of doubt is baffling. By doing nothing, we invite further confusion and erosion of voter confidence,” the justice wrote Monday, according to the Examiner. “Our fellow citizens deserve better and expect more of us. I respectfully dissent.”
