Donald Trump expected his three Supreme Court nominees to serve as one of the central legacies of his first term in office.
But Trump was in for a surprise.
And Donald Trump will be seeing red after hearing these four words about a major Supreme Court case.
Trump supporters cheered when the Supreme Court handed down a five to four ruling allowing a Texas law that banned abortions after six weeks.
Amy Coney Barrett – who Trump appointed to fill Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat after Ginsburg passed away – provided the decisive vote.
But Republican Senator Bill Cassidy – a RINO that voted to convict Donald Trump in Nancy Pelosi’s second impeachment witch hunt and also supported a $1.2 trillion Green New Deal-style spending bill – claimed the victory would be short-lived.
Cassidy claimed the court only allowed the law to take effect because of a technical issue on standing since none of the named officials in the abortion industry’s challenge ever enforced the law.
“It was only on if the plaintiff had standing,” Cassidy told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos. “People are using it to gin up their base to distract from disastrous policies in Afghanistan, maybe for fundraising appeals. I wish we would focus on issues…as opposed to theater.”
Cassidy went so far as to hope that the Supreme Court “will swat it away.”
“I think the Supreme Court will swat it away once it comes to them in an appropriate manner,” Cassidy added. “If it is as terrible as people say it is, it will be destroyed by the Supreme Court. But to act like this is an assault upon Roe v. Wade is, again, something the president is doing I think to distract from his other issues.”
There is reason to believe Cassidy’s confidence is well-founded.
In the court’s decision the justices stated that they had questions about the law’s constitutionality, but that there was no live controversy about its enforcement since the law allowed for private citizens to file civil lawsuits instead of calling on government officials to enforce the law.
Cassidy enraged conservatives further by claiming that ending abortion – and saving the lives of almost 1,000,000 babies every year – did not rate very highly on his priority list.
“We can always talk about eventualities, we can always talk about theoreticals,” Cassidy concluded. “It makes good fodder, but I’m kind of a guy who’s in the middle of a state in which 700,000 people don’t have electricity, in which we’ve got a disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan, and the administration is pushing a $3.5 trillion bill which will be to inflation what the withdrawal was to Afghanistan.”
Establishment RINOs like Cassidy are why Republicans turned to Trump in 2016.
The conservative base grew sick and tired of politicians who claimed to support all of their causes while campaigning only to abandon them and side with the left once in office.
Cassidy openly rooting for the Supreme Court to overturn pro-life legislation will only serve to bind the GOP base closer to Trump as Republicans look for standard bearers that actually fight for their values.
