We all knew it was coming. The Left went absolutely mad over President Trump’s decision to nominate Brett Kavanaugh to fill Justice Anthony Kennedy’s seat on the Supreme Court. But there was one group of Americans who were even more outraged over the announcement: #BachelorNation.
Monday morning, well before the President was set to reveal his pick, The Bachelorette host, Chris Harrison, warned the show’s fans that the program would be briefly “paused" for the SCOTUS announcement.
Here’s my PSA for #BachelorNation @abcnews will be cutting in at 9/8 ET/CT tonight for SCOTUS announcement. #TheBachelorette will be “paused” and seen in its entirety. Now go have a great day and I’ll see you tonight!— Chris Harrison (@chrisbharrison) July 9, 2018
To be safe you should extend your recordings of #TheBachelorette tonight by 30 minutes— Chris Harrison (@chrisbharrison) July 9, 2018
However, the PSA did little to curb viewers’ annoyance when Becca, this season’s bachelorette, had her date with Blake so rudely interrupted by the President. Trump really has some nerve.
I’m just trying to escape through #TheBachelorette but now they gotta interupt it to remind me that the world is going to hell.— rachel (@racheljaii) July 10, 2018
Becca’s entire story has been ruined by white stupid men. First Arie and now Trump. #thebachelorette— Jem (@JustJem24) July 10, 2018
If this white man cared about women as much as he says he does, he wouldn't be interrupting the Bachelorette for so freaking long. #TheBachelorette— Becca Korando (@BeccaKorando) July 10, 2018
I DIDN’T THINK I COULD HATE DONALD TRUMP MORE BUT HE JUST INTERRUPTED #THEBACHELORETTE WHAT IS THIS NONSENSE— Zach Wallenstein (@xaqwall) July 10, 2018
Blake is probably the most pissed about this interruption. He's been WAITING for this date so anxiously. And now TRUMP gets in the way??? Poor Blake! #thebachelorette— I Guffaw (@i_guffaw) July 10, 2018
I respect our President. I respect the United States. I respect whoever Trump is about to nominate to the Supreme Court. BUT WHEN THE BACHELORETTE (the only thing I look forward to on Mondays) GETS INTERRUPTED, I am NOT a happy girl #TheBachelorette? ?— Laryn Hamilton (@larynhailey) July 10, 2018
We wouldn’t call nominating a Supreme Court Justice “shenanigans,” but how Becca's third one-on-one date goes is surely more important than the future of our highest court. Glad our priorities are straight.
why the F is trump interrupting the bachelorette right now?!?!? I’m trying to see Blake’s date not ur orange face— jess white (@jesss_whiite) July 10, 2018
This isn’t the first time the President has dared to interrupt The Bachelorette, either.
Donald Trump you’ve crossed the line!!! You’ve interrupted the Bachelor one too many times this season and the people have had ENOUGH!— Emily Evangelista (@emevang) July 10, 2018
Earlier in the season, the program was delayed so ABC could air the historic summit between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un. While none of the episode was actually cut out, The Bachelorette fans were about as pleased then as they were last night.
trump has 6 other days of the week to announce his SCOTUS choice and he just HAS to do it on bachelor monday?? the man has no class— sleo (@sarahleo_7) July 10, 2018
Perhaps Trump will start listening to what the American people really want and start scheduling his important announcements and meetings for Tuesdays.
this is the second time the government has interrupted my bachelorette viewing, and I'm about ready to switch to a political science major and run for president so no one else's monday night will be ruined EVER AGAIN #TheBachelorette— •Jill• (@JillMurphy0421) July 10, 2018
We can hear the campaign slogan already: Make Bachelor Mondays Great Again.
