Trump's Scary Supreme Court Picks

Donald Trump Friday released a second list of his potential Supreme Court nominees, and it's just as scary for LGBT people — and anyone who cares about civil liberties — as the first.

The list seems designed to solidify Trump's support among the far right, the Associated Press notes, and it appears to have succeeded — shortly after it was released, U.S. Sen.

Mike Lee of Utah, one of the Senate's most anti-LGBT members....

"Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominees would be devastating for women, working families, senior citizens, and so many others for decades.”
