Sean Hannity just went off on all the never Trumpers in the GOP who wanted Hillary, not Trump to win.
Look, the stakes were high and none higher than the Supreme Court. From Fox News:
Sean Hannity said “Never-Trump” Republicans should “admit how wrong” they were in opposing the president’s candidacy, citing what the Supreme Court could look like with two nominees from Hillary Clinton.
“I have a message for you,” he said. “Hillary Clinton would now be making a second appointment in terms of the judicial courts of American history.”
He said that it would be Clinton, not President Trump, affecting the judiciary “for decades to come.”
Hannity also warned that Democrats are “sharpening their spears” to “Bork” anyone President Trump nominates to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy.
“What the left can never accomplish through the ballot box or through real legislation they try to accomplish by abusing the court system and using activist judges,” Hannity said.
Hannity said he expects the “single most contentious, nasty, dirty, propagand[ist] character assassination campaign” against the nominee, adding that it will be similar to the failed nomination of Judge Robert Bork, where the term “Borked” comes from.
“Democrats are sharpening their spears like they did in 1987,” Hannity said, as that was the year Bork was nominated by President Reagan to replace Justice Lewis Powell Jr.
Hannity played tape of Edward Kennedy, then a Democrat senator from Massachusetts, claiming Bork’s confirmation would lead to “a land in which women would be forced into back-alley abortions.”

If Sean is right and I think he is, get ready for a battle over Trump’s next pick that will make Gorsuch look like kids play.
