First lady Melania Trump tweeted out her “congratulations” to Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh following his formal ceremonial Investiture ceremony at the Supreme Court on Thursday.
And the vitriol predictably poured in from angry liberals across country.
“Congratulations Justice Kavanaugh. I know you will continue to serve our country with honor,” Melania Trump tweeted Thursday.
She also shared a picture of herself and President Donald Trump standing with the justices — and one of herself signing the guest book.
Her tribute was lovely, respectful, and tasteful — but far too many did not see it that way.

The president nominated Kavanaugh in early July to replace retired Justice Anthony Kennedy.
But Kavanaugh’s confirmation process was derailed during its final days when last-minute sexual assault allegations became public against him.
Kavanaugh vehemently and consistently denied all of the allegations against him — and testified before the Senate Committee on the Judiciary after one of his accusers, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, also testified.
Many Democratic senators and liberal activists immediately were opposed to Kavanaugh’s nomination well before the allegations became public, and the theatrics that followed didn’t sit well with many red state voters.
Almost all of the vulnerable incumbent senators in states that Trump carried during the 2016 presidential election who voted against Kavanaugh were ousted on Tuesday following the midterm elections.
But many liberals are still sore over Kavanaugh’s successful confirmation to the Supreme Court, and Melania Trump’s tweeted congratulating the newest justice was met with extensive outcry.
“Have you read any of the previews for Michelle Obama’s new book? She mentions your husband and how his birtherism put a target on her girls. You are a racist, gold-digging porn model who used your body to snag a rich racist. You have no clue what honor means,” one Twitter user responded incredibly rudely.
