Love or hate Trump, these supreme court appointments show why his election was so pivotal.

No kidding. He hasn't been there two years and has made two picks. One was a "refresh", one a sort-of-flip, now there's a flip potentially on the table and another flip (Breyer?) isn't out of the question. A refresh for Thomas is also a possibility.

Kavanaugh was bad enough, but if Trump replaces RBG it will get UGLY
Certainly people will be angry... But he could nominate Amy Coney Barrett and how could they stop it?
Amy Coney Barrett would be an excellent pick.

What do you mean...is it not just coincidence that these appointments came about while hes in office? I got the impression Trump supporters just hated Hillary and immigration and didnt think about the court.

The judicial philosophy difference couldnt be more stark. I’m waiting to see if Republican justices become “activists” for causes on the right. If they stay true to the philosophy they should (basically) be overturning judicial legislating at lower levels and kicking things back to state and federal legislatures. For example, overturning Roe v Wade would be entirely consistent if the decision was in a way that gave it back to the states while a ruling that broadly made abortion illegal would be activist.

One that seems activist to me is political money being considered free speech.
