In the realm of politics, there are a myriad of candidates with assets and flaws that people weigh in making their decision. This applies to potential nominees for any cabinet position or Supreme Court Justiceship that the President chooses. And even in a time when the slightest hint of being a Constitutionalist is enough for Democrats to not vote for someone, perhaps the strangest case against someone is what they say on Twitter.
Now, I understand that this can sometimes matter to some extent. The Left has always been worried about Trump’s tweets and take it as part of his agenda and what he intends to do. But in the case for 5th Circuit Judge Don Willett, the Left takes it to a strange extreme.
ABC News reported this past weekend that: “[T]he judge’s frequent tweeting last year raises questions for some of judicial impartiality. [I]t remains to be seen whether or not his tweets will interfere with any potential nomination.”
What are these potential judicially impartial tweets? Lame Dad jokes. Yep. Just Dad jokes.
Here are some jokes ABC News apparently found “troubling” and potentially “disqualifying” of his nomination:
On December 29th, 2017, he shared a picture of cornbread shaped like his home state of Texas with the caption: “When you’re tired of cornbread shaped like Colorado and Wyoming.”
On December 31st, 2017, he shared a small conversation he had with his kid: “11YO – Daddy, why do politicians talk about Eminem’s domain? ME – That’s eminent domain. 11YO – Huh? Me – Sorry, you only get one shot.”
On that same day, he referenced Rick Astley’s song “Never Gonna Give You Up” by tweeting: “People of Earth – in 2018, [I] will never: give you up, let you down, run around, desert you, make you cry, say goodbye, tell a lie, hurt you.”
And what is perhaps the dumbest concern actual Democrat Senators had is a tweet from April 29th, 2015 that said: “I could support recognizing a constitutional right to marry bacon.”
An actual Democrat Senator, Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) asked the judge about the tweet in a Senate Judiciary Committee back in 2017.
Over these past couple of years, I’ve seen rampant stupidity on the part of elected Democrats, Deep State operatives and fake news media. I’ve seen unhinged ignorance on the part of Hollywood elites, pseudo-celebrities who are only known for being Twitter morons and athletes parroting the fake news media.
I’ve seen a lot of fake news articles, stories, reportings and videos. I don’t quite know where this story ranks in terms of sheer stupidity, but it’s up there.
You really have to wonder how far down these people have to reach down at the bottom of the barrel to see what they can get to attack a potential Supreme Court Justice that Trump might pick.
And perhaps the most pathetic part is that they take themselves seriously when they do this type of thing. They honestly take these kinds of tweets as grounds for making their decision.
It’s honestly a strange kind of hatred on display. It’s not volatile or aggressive like we’re used to seeing; it’s more subtle. Just about every Democrat (and stupidly enough, some Republicans) will vote against any nominee Trump selects for the simple reason that Trump likes that person. It doesn’t matter if they are uniquely qualified or would do his or her job excellently and uphold the Constitution of the United States in every case. Just because Trump likes that person, they must be destroyed.
In fact, they will also destroy them if they do plan to uphold the Constitution. In their minds, the Constitution is the biggest threat to their socialist agenda and must be rid of or rendered ineffective.
But that’s a different topic that I can always talk about at another time. Right now, I simply want to point out the mentality of the Left in who Trump might pick to replace Justice Kennedy.
This very story shows that they will go to any bounds, even if it’s entirely ridiculous, to ensure any Trump pick is stained in their eyes and the eyes of the American people – or at least the ones who still watch them and read their content for some reason.
Knowing that, you also have to wonder how squeaky clean this judge’s record might be. In these kind of situations, if you are a biased journalist and want to attack a potential nominee picked by the President whom you absolutely abhor, you look at everything they may have done. From corruption to sexual immorality to physical abuse, any scandal will do. But when you don’t have that, you reach for anything at all. Apparently, that includes calling into question the judge’s qualifications based entirely on tweets that either have absolutely nothing to do with politics or are simply lame Dad jokes that only he will find funny.
THAT is peak pathetic journalism. At least other fake news media is hard-working in the smearing of any right-winger. This is nothing but pathetic and lazy.
But it does show their kind of mentality: attack anyone Trump could potentially choose as Supreme Court Judge for any given reason, even something as ridiculous as lame Dad jokes and push it as legitimate concern for his potential judgeship.
It’s always interesting to see how deep Trump Derangement Syndrome goes.
“Whoever is slack in his work is a brother to him who destroys.”
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
