While Santa tends to keep his lists pretty quiet, President Donald Trump always lets us know who’s joined his naughty list. As expected, he was not happy with the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to dismiss the election-related case brought by Texas against four other states. Friday night, Trump tweeted “The Supreme Court really let us down. No Wisdom, No Courage!”
Trump continued to voice his displeasure in subsequent tweets, saying, “So, you’re the President of the United States, and you just went through an election where you got more votes than any sitting President in history, by far – and purportedly lost. You can’t get “standing” before the Supreme Court, so you “intervene” with wonderful states that, after careful study and consideration, think you got “screwed,” something which will hurt them also. Many others likewise join the suit but, within a flash, it is thrown out and gone, without even looking at the many reasons it was brought. A Rigged Election, fight on!”
The court ruled 7-2 to dismiss the case without it even being heard. Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito said they would have heard the case, but all three of Trump’s Supreme Court picks – Amy Coney Barrett, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh – voted against hearing the case.
Following his tweets directed at the Supreme Court, Trump turned his attention to a pair of Republican governors, Brian Kemp of Georgia and Doug Ducey of Arizona. Trump tweeted “Who is a worse governor, @BrianKempGA of Georgia or @dougducey of Arizona??? These are two RINO Republicans who fought against me and the Republican Party harder than any Democrat. They allowed states that I won easily to be stolen. Never forget, vote them out of office!”
The ruling all but ends President Trump’s efforts at flipping the result of the election.
