It took Trump remarkably little time to blow the cover story his water boy appears poised to use to uphold his illegal manipulation of the census:
The best part about this tweet is gonna be when Roberts pretends not to have seen it and insists the citizenship question is important to the voting rights act, a law he has bitterly hated since he was in his 20s. https://t.co/LKLoHhIlME

And I mean, why not? When the author of Shelby County is able to assert without giggling that he favors upholding a discriminatory act of illegality intended to suppress minority voters because of the importance of enforcing the Voting Rights Act and deferring to Congress, and a fellow hack chimes in to add that the Court must be highly attentive to European legal standards, what harm can be added by their co-partisan making it clear that it’s all bullshit? It’s all in the game, and the fact that the “legal” reasoning of the Republican Party’s judicial section is actively intelligence-insulting is a feature, not a bug.
