Democrats Are Fucked and So Is Democracy if Mitch McConnell Makes Good on Supreme Court Threat
Samuel Corum/GettyOn Monday, demoted Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell declared that the federal courts belong to Republicans by birthright, and let Joe Biden and Senate Democrats know exactly where they can stick their attempts at bipartisanship.

As The Daily Beast has reported, eight Republican-controlled states have now banned trans kids from competing in sports, exploiting them to score points with the GOP's populist, religious and ignorant base. Thousands of anti-trans bills have been introduced nationwide. The Texas Senate has even voted to classify gender-affirming health care (such as hormone treatments) as child abuse.
