Day 1132


(Matt Kiser) #1

1/ Trump demanded that Supreme Court Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg recuse themselves from “all Trump, or Trump-related” cases. On Twitter, Trump accused Sotomayor of trying to “shame” other justices into “voting her way” after she issued a dissent last week that the court has been too quick to grant “emergency” relief to the federal government. Sotomayor’s dissent came following the court’s majority allowing the Trump administration to proceed with a plan to deny green cards to immigrants who are deemed likely to become a “public charge.” Trump also tweeted that Sotomayor “never criticized Justice Ginsberg when she called me a ‘faker’” – referring to Ginsberg’s July 2016 criticism that she could not imagine then-candidate Trump as president.

65 years after Emmett Till’s murder, Congress just made lynching a federal crime.

It’s good they did, but mind-boggling that both it wasn’t already… and 4 congress members voted AGAINST it!

I was asked who the four were who voted against this measure.

They were Republican Reps. Louie Gohmert (Texas), Thomas Massie (Ky.) and Ted Yoho (Fla.), and independent Rep. Justin Amash (Mich.).

I am especially disappointed by Amash.
