Trump Wants Heritage Foundation Wants Judge Pryor Wants Supreme Court Justice!

In other news, this turns out to be very interesting:
“I’m getting names. The Federalist people. Some very good people. The Heritage Foundation,” Trump said. “I’m going to announce that these are the judges, in no particular order, that I’m going to put up. And I’m going to guarantee it. I’m going to tell people. Because people are worried that, oh, maybe he’ll put the wrong judge in.”
Well, I sure am now!

I know some folks that might be pleased, but anyone else?

But what Trump has made clear is that he plans to appoint to the Supreme Court only ultraconservative jurists in the mold of Antonin Scalia, ones who would likely support overturning Roe v. Wade and uphold state efforts to curtail abortion rights. He even said he would pick a justice from list of potential nominees issued by the Heritage Foundation, an anti-choice group led by Jim DeMint, who was “one of the most die-hard anti-choice lawmakers” during his time in the Senate. (The organization has since released a list of their conservative dream justices).
This is probably not too good, but you all know by now I'm a pessimist at heart.

You can review the Heritage Foundation list of "dream" Trump judges here.

First on the list -- our own Judge William Pryor!!

Happy Monday???

Paul Clement will be the first nominee by the next Republican president -- if there is a Republican president in the next decade or so.

There's a consensus pick for you--a recess appointee to the 11th. Trump mentioned him at the debate within hours of Scalia's death.

Lord help us all if that intellectually dishonest troll makes it to the SCOTUS. Oh wait, I just described Scalia.
