What the hell is going on with the US Supreme Court? [View all]

It's like they have all become Chris Sununu's?

They are trying to excuse and legitimize the insurrectionists who ransacked our Capitol on January 6th and threatened our elected Representatives and Senators.

Have they all fallen prey to the Trump spell?

They seem to be totally disregarding the laws and our Constitution and just making shit up??

Unless somebody can remove the pall that has enshrouded them, they are likely to do the unthinkable. They might even rule that not only does Donald Trump have "absolute immunity", but that he never did anything that would require immunity.

They have lost their friggin' minds. Too bad someone cannot remove their robes.
