    Aging, humorless Dem Senator rips judicial nominee Don Willett over Bacon Marriage tweet

    Aging, humorless Dem Senator rips judicial nominee Don Willett over Bacon Marriage tweet

    2015 Tweet: “I could support recognizing a constitutional right to marry bacon”

    Wednesday, the Senate Judiciary Committee conducted confirmation hearings for several judicial appointees including Texas Supreme Court Justice Don Willett. Willett has been nominated for a spot on the fifth circuit.

    An avid Twitter user, Willett is a bright, humorous spot on the social media platform. Prior to the hearing, many a politic-watcher wondered if Willett’s Twitter feed would be questioned.

    And it was.

    Democrat Sen. Leahy took issue with a tweet Justice Willett published after the Obergefell decision on same-sex marriage.

    Sen. Leahy used the tweet to grill Willett over his ability to respect precedent.

    “Respectfully, I don’t believe I have attacked Supreme Court precedent, but certainly if I were fortunate enough to be confirmed as a federal circuit judge, I would be honor-bound, categorically, absolutely, to follow every controlling precedent,” explained Justice Willett.

    When Sen. Leahy persisted, Willett attempted again to explain the context of his tweet saying, “Senator, as for the bacon tweet, that was the day after the Obergefell decision was issued and it was my attempt to invect a bit of levity. The country was filled with rancor and polarization. It was a divisive time in the nation.”

    Liberals have long since been using the “gay marriage” farce to push for their next set of goals for making a complete sham of the institution: polygamy, abolishing age restrictions, abolishing consanguinity restricts (so you can marry your child, or your cousin).

    Same types of people celebrate when a moonbat “marries” a tree, or a dog, or themself (yeah, not kidding), or a building, or even marries an abstract concept (again, wish I was kidding).

    Same types of people are now feigning outrage over the tweet in the post above. As if they wouldn’t be celebrating if one of their own had actually announced they were doing it. Which, if I were to spend a few minutes googling, I wouldn’t be the least surprised to find had actually happened.

    I’m still waiting for one of the victims of these many congressional hearings to respond by calling their inquisitors the liars, lunatics and morons that they are. It amazes me that everyone tolerates being raked over the coals by these incompetent, politically-driven scum without firing back. There’s no question that Leahy will vote against him whatever he says — I’m so sick of the fake respect accorded these ignorant, partisan hacks while they play to the cameras.
