Trump’s SCOTUS List is Meaningless because the Word of a Pathological Liar is Worthless
Donald Trump has released a list of people who he is apparently going to consider for Supreme Court nominees to replace Antonin Scalia. Off the top of my head the only two names I recognize are Sykes and Willett, who are of course great nominees.
As to the rest, I don’t really plan to do even cursory research about their records, neither do I care. The whole point of this is to allay conservative fears and “prove” that he is better than Hillary because at least he will nominate conservative justices to the Supreme Court. Trump even says so himself:
Look, if you’re an absolute sucker who’s decided to defenestrate your discernment in order to ease your conscience about pulling the lever for a mentally unstable person in November, you might believe this. If, however, you have a functioning long term memory, you will remember that Trump has lied or flip-flopped about literally everything during the course of this primary.
Doing this stuff comes as easily as breathing to Donald Trump. His unrelenting dishonesty and malleability even puts Bill Clinton to shame. And we are supposed to believe that this list, which costs Donald Trump nothing at all, is an iron clad promise and we can totally believe that this list isn’t just a “suggestion” or an “opening bargaining position” with Democrats, and that he won’t end up nominating another Souter.
Sorry, pass. I didn’t fall off the turnip truck yesterday.
