Trump cheers early opening in Wisconsin despite most people opposing it



By Josh Israel -May 14, 2020 10:15 AM

Trump cheered a court ruling overturning the governor's stay-at-home order entirely, even as experts say such orders are necessary to protect Americans from the virus.

Donald Trump cheered the Wisconsin Supreme Court's Wednesday decision to strike down the governor's stay-at-home order, hailing it on Thursday morning as a victory. He also falsely suggested that the state's population wants an immediate end to the social distancing rules designed to slow the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

"The Great State of Wisconsin, home to Tom Tiffany's big Congressional Victory on Tuesday, was just given another win," Trump wrote. "Its Democrat [sic] Governor was forced by the courts to let the State Open. The people want to get on with their lives. The place is bustling!"

Contrary to Trump's claims, a Marquette University Law School poll, released Tuesday, showed that 69% of Wisconsin voters backed closures of schools and businesses and restrictions on public gatherings. A plurality of Republicans in the survey (49% to 43%) believed the rules appropriate (though that was down from 83% support among GOP voters surveyed in late March).

Wisconsin's conservative court overturned Gov. Tony Evers' "Safer at Home" emergency order by a 4-3 majority. They held that "an agency cannot confer on itself the power to dictate the lives of law-abiding individuals as comprehensively as the order does without reaching beyond the executive branch's authority." The challenge had been brought by the Republican leadership in the state legislature.

I really do want that people that are "sane" in Wisconsin to remember that there courts and there right wing fucked up libertarian legislature are basically the new form of death squad, being cheered on by another psychopath sitting in the white house, and that this is the "second" time that that this court and legislature has basically given the citizens of the state a death warrant...............with there libertarian BS..........and this is not going to end well for thousands of people in the Badger State........ ............absolutely amazing

1. The GOP has become a death cult.

Opening things back up before you have done the testing and tracing of the disease
is just madness.

3. Horrific ruling.

I saw the clip of Gov. Evers with Ali Velshi, and Gov. Evers looked completely exhausted.
