WATCH: Andrew Klavan Has A Message For Leftists Melting Down Over The Supreme Court

On Thursday's episode of "The Andrew Klavan Show," host Andrew Klavan explained why the Left has no right to complain about the Supreme Court.

"I have one message for the Left on this: This is your own damn fault," said Klavan. "It’s you who insisted that the government should put its grubby little fingers into every single aspect of our lives. The Constitution gives ... the Federal Government enumerated powers. It’s not supposed to have any other powers other than what’s mentioned in the Constitution, but it’s you guys who have extended that power through interpreting the Constitution any way you want, just making it up … it’s a 'living document' ..."

I have one message for the Left on this, this is your own damn fault...It’s you who insisted that the government should put its grubby little fingers into every single aspect of our lives. The Constitution gives … the Federal Government enumerated powers. It’s not supposed to have any other powers other than what’s mentioned in the Constitution but it’s you guys who have extended that power through interpreting the Constitution any way you want, just making it up…it’s a 'living document'...

Now the Federal Government decides who gets married, who can get married, what laws the states can make about marriage, what laws the states can make about abortion. You know, it’s like basically you have a Chicago pol, like Obama, sitting in Washington telling people in Arkansas who should use the bathrooms in their public schools...The President of The United States is going to dictate that to Mississippi, is gonna dictate that to Connecticut, it’s like what on earth? That is not the way our government was supposed to work!

This is supposed to be enumerated powers. It’s your fault, Lefties, that the court has become that important. It shouldn’t be that five unelected justices get this decision, you know, get to make decisions that affect us all so deeply. If the government were smaller, if the government were obeying the Constitution and only having the enumerated powers in the Constitution then the Supreme Court’s decisions, every now and then there would be an important one, it wouldn’t be like every single one was dealing with every single one of us. It’s the Left , when you saw these decisions that we were talking about yesterday, these enforced speech decisions, it’s the Left that wants to tell you how to feel, it’s the Left that wants to tell you how to think, it’s the Left that wants to tell you how to say. They think that freedom just fell out of the sky and it will be protected no matter what we do. They do not understand that it’s our laws, our Constitution that protect us — and when you interpret the Constitution rightly, even if you don’t get what you want in that minute, it still is protecting you and the Left just doesn’t get it, they only go with the results, they never care about the process.
