Judicial nominees will be the Pyrrhic victory of Trumpism, but it's not even a great victory. Trumpers are latching onto stacked courts as this colossal win, but there couldn't be a more boring, benign win for them to get excited about. They are going to have to wait a long time for that dopamine hit to kick in. And to this point, thus far all of Trump's appointed judges have shot Trump in the foot. Unfortunately, judges are constrained by our system of laws. Concepts Trump and his Trumpers are wholly ignorant of. And as far as judicial appointments go, good luck Trumpers. You may never get gratification from any of them. Especially considering Trump's ability to pass legislation is over.

In every other imaginable way he is a complete and total disastrous loss for the party.

Trump's legislative wins include a tax bill that is the opposite of conservative fiscal policy, and, oh wait, that's it.

And now the Democrats have the house.

Who here thinks the Dems are going to write legislation that will cater to Trump's "agenda"? I'll wait.

Who here thinks a Democrat Congress can't check and balance the judicial branch? I'll wait.

Trumpers, lacking awareness of basic civics (not unlike their hero/daddy), are so incredibly enthusiastic about the only thing Mitch McConnell has managed to accomplish with a President in absentia, that they don't realize that the interpreters of law require written laws to interpret. And since Trumpers won't ever have the chance to see Trump sign a law that is a win for Trump or themselves, they really have no reason to get all excited.

"But Trump can veto any law!", you Trumpers will say. Yes, he can veto so many laws that McConnell's judges won't be able to judge. Lame.

Congratulations Trumpers. You are cheering for wasted paper and bored, out of work judges. HOORAY!

AND! In two years, if by some miracle Trump finishes out this term as fake-president, America will have a liberal President, and a Democrat super-Congress who can write their way around McConnell's Conservative Supreme Court.

And that is what happens when you get swindled by a toxic con-man, en masse.

Thanks for ruining my party dumbasses.
