Donald Trump is obsessed with television ratings, so it makes perfect sense that he'd choose a SCOTUS nominee who strongly resembles an actor, right? Right.
Cut to Monday night, when Trump picked Judge Brett Kavanaugh to take the seat of Justice Anthony Kennedy, who announced his retirement from the Supreme Court in late June.

The life-changing realization that Kavanaugh is a doppelgänger to the the goofiest Superstore character, known for his Kermit the Frog-esque voice, came when Trump passed the mic off to his SCOTUS nominee on Monday night.
Mid-speech, featured editor for TV Guide Krutika Mallikarjuna questioned why Kavanaugh sounded "like a deflated Glenn." After I finished laughing out loud on my couch I realized that not only does Kavanaugh sound like a deflated Glenn, but he looks like him too.

It's been two days since Kavanaugh's speech, and every single time I see a picture of the man my brain screams: GLEN FROM SUPERSTORE! So I finally checked to see if anyone else noticed a resemblance and, uh, they definitely did.

I'm not the only person who hears "Brett Kavanaugh" and thinks "Glenn from Superstore," right? pic.twitter.com/CoCeUmX4jV

Even though Brett Kavanaugh has been consistently hilarious as Glenn on over three seasons of Superstore, I think it’s time to stop putting NBC’s on-air talent in positions of untold political power. #SCOTUS pic.twitter.com/M6p4uBLpsB

Many also noted that Brett and Glenn have some similarities beyond their physical appearances, like they're both fans of the Bible and America! Uncanny!
But despite the resemblances, fans seem to think the lovable Superstore boss is the better of the two men.

Have fun living in the shadows of a fictional character, Brett!
