Barack Obama's attorney general Eric Holder is fuming over the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

So angry is the one-time top lawman that he questions the legitimacy of the highest court in America — simply because a fairly-elected Republican president installed a conservative judge. And he wants everyone who opposed Kavanaugh to use their "rage" to "be rid of these people."

"With the confirmation of Kavanaugh and the process which led to it, (and the treatment of Merrick Garland), the legitimacy of the Supreme Court can justifiably be questioned. The Court must now prove - through its work - that it is worthy of the nation’s trust," Holder wrote Saturday on Twitter.

Holder continued to whine about Merrick, who was nominated by Obama but never voted on by the Senate, and further complained that Republicans are appointing judges to federal benches across the nation (note to Holder: The party in control of the Senate appoints judges, just so you know, FYI).

"As you lament the Merrick Garland outrage never forget that McConnell and R’s did not fill lower court seats for YEARS. Those are the seats being filled now. Use the rage of today to get people out to vote and be rid of these people. Your voice matters. Your vote counts. VOTE!" he wrote.

Holder is considering a presidential run in 20202 and is actively fighting against President Trump as chairman of the National Democratic Redistricting Committee. The former AG also loves to employ violent language, as he did during a campaign stop in Wisconsin last Thursday.

“We have to be ready to, you know, not do anything inappropriate, not do anything improper, certainly not do anything unlawful. But to the extent that they want to have a fight, let’s do it. You want to rumble, let’s rumble. You want to have a knife fight, we’re gonna do it.”
