ANDREW NAPOLITANO (FOX NEWS SENIOR JUDICIAL ANALYST): The Washington establishment, sometimes known as the swamp, wanted Judge Kavanaugh, and the people around the president wanted Judge Kavanaugh, led by Don McGahn, the White House legal counsel, long-time friend of Judge Kavanaugh, and they prevailed.

PETE HEGSETH (CO-HOST): So you're saying it's a swamp pick?

NAPOLITANO:  Yes. I'm saying that this is -- I am disappointed in the president because this is not the type of person that he said he would pick. Justice [Neil] Gorsuch was. This person is at the heart and soul of the D.C. establishment against whom the president railed.

The Supreme Court could overturn Roe v. Wade. Don’t buy these right-wing excuses that it’s not a big deal.
