No, Kavanaugh would still be there. He's the *second* Trump appointed Justice.

The first is the guy who got the slot that should have been filled by an Obama appointee (except the Republicans refused to hold hearings on Obama's nominee)

The over 55 one is problematic. Like the Presidency, there's a minimum age to be a Senator or a representative.

From Wikipedia:
In the United States, a person must be aged 35 or over to be President or Vice President, 30 or over to be a Senator, and 25 or over to be a Representative, as specified in the U.S. Constitution

Add in the fact that unlike the Presidency, there aren't any term limits, and you get a *strong* selection bias for older people. Among other things, the longer you've been in office the more effective you are (though what counts as "effective" varies greatly according to your political views)
