Somewhere getting drunk as a sailor, fuming on twitter (assuming that's her on her twitter feed and no longer any of her underlings), or arguing with Bill. LOL.

Those of us who support and defend Trump do so for a lot of reasons. We watched the dishonest mainstream media lie about him and exaggerate every little thing he said, and they hated when he told the truth as it didn't fit with their globalist, anti-American narrative. Had Hillary won, the whole nation would have been turned into California; a fiscally-irresponsible, bankrupt dumping ground with an ever-growing dependency class (hence those 3 million+ illegal votes) with companies continuing to leave left and right, and idiots demanding $15 minimum wage while leaving borders wide open to the very reason they likely won't ever see a wage increase. Can the OP handle that truth?

That's way above his head. He can't understand that.

I'm sure you agree with that. Very sad.

Really? For what reason do you say he is "nuts?" What has he lied about? Look at the liar we had for the last eight years, and the liar you wanted to make president after him? And you call Donald Trump a liar with no proof of any lie?

You're providing absolutely no examples to make your point. Just hurling insults.

Well, yes, some are elected, but it appears that many are not. Perhaps we should also elect the ones who aren't currently elected. Make all judges a partisan issue.

This sounds good: make the Supreme Court Justice an elected position and have what, a 12 year term plus elect them on odd years, so that they can never be tied to a specific president? Also, if one dies in office, give the governor of their home state the privilege of putting in a temp until the next election, like they can do for a congress person. It all makes sense.

And by the way, I am not "the left." I am a moderate who usually leans slightly toward the conservative side, but can't abide this pretender that we have now.
I think it's fair to call a liberal leaning judge "so-called", which suggests that his judging isn't based strictly on the law but other considerations. Justice is supposed to be blind [and upright ], not leaning to the left OR right.

And, yes, if the judge puts a hold on a measure that would give us better screening of incoming refugees and terrorist(s) do get in because of that hold, that judge "kept the door open" so to speak.

Looks like Dawkins may be the delusional one, highlighting all the negatives he sees in God but none of the positives. So sad for Dawkins.

Just as Dawkins chooses to ignore the other side, so liberals choose to ignore the other side of anything that isn't Left.

Trump has a strange way of dealing with people he disagrees with. He is very insecure. Still putting his businesses and the business of his daughter first before doing the country's business for which he was elected.

OK, in response to the bolded:

1. a lot of people think it is fair to call anyone who doesn't agree with them "so-called". Clearly trump can be called a 'so-called president' in that case.

2. You are arguing against yourself. If having a conservative court is important to conservatives, why shouldn't having a liberal court be important to liberals? If those who question the basis for stopping the ban until its legality can be established really examine their beliefs on this, I don't think anyone really wants justice to be blind, I think that perhaps they really want it to have a severe case of scoliosis that makes it lean right to the point that it topples over.

That's convoluted thinking, wanting justice to be how you define it, which is what liberals do. Judges are not supposed to legislate from the bench. Conservatives are far less likely to do that, but liberals seem to fall into it easily.
