Thank you, Harry Reid

"As of November 3rd, 13 Trump nominees to the courts have been confirmed this year. The big name is Supreme Court Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch, but we also have eight new federal appeals court judges, and four new U.S. district court judges. President Trump has now already surpassed the last four presidents' records for first-year judifical confirmations. And he's even tied President Ronald Reagan number of appeals court confirmations in year one."

Harry Reid killed the filibuster so Obama could railroad his appointees through without Republican objection. Recently Democrats have been trying to use the blue slip tradition to replace it, but Sen. Chuck Grassley (IA) has stopped that.  So the nation has been fixated on "inappropriate' behavior, Trump has been scoring major victories that will last far past his time in office.
