ha good line!
but in truth the supreme court is the only body of government that hasnt (yet!) started acting political. If you say their decisions are clear thats one thing , but take a look at how congress and the administration throws barbs at each other all day acting clearly political. that hasnt happened (yet!) on the courts. allowing a trumpian personality on the courts will invite ocasio cortezian personalities as well.
lets not.
Absolutely! Although I don't like - and I've said it here before - that Chief Justice Roberts tries to be a political pleaser. I respect justices who stick to their convictions, and keep the integrity of the court beyond reproach. Be it on either side of the aisle.
Is there a clever way to solicit likes without sounding like a classless wannabee?

Tell that to RBG
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

As Ben Shapiro often says, "when you see Trump standing over a corpse, realize he is not the murderer, he's just the coroner"
