president trump turns our Supreme Court Justice selection process into a pageant by parading out his top two picks, or, should he say, his first runner-up, and the winner of his pageant, Mr. Supreme Court.
trump has promised that evangelicals will love his pick.
Why is the president revealing his judicial pick in this manner? Because we have turned the serious business of running a nation into a D-list reality show, and because our new president likes to make a spectacle of both himself and everything he does.
Meanwhile, acting Attorney General Sally Yates was fired after refusing to honor trump’s Muslim ban. The White House released an official statement calling Ms. Yates “unloyal”. Our new president has made it clear what he wants in an Attorney General is someone who will rubber-stamp every illegal action he wants to take.
