Yes, we can! Here are more reasons to drink saffron milk…
In April, President-elect Donald Trump nominated Neil Gorsuch for the vacant Supreme Court seat of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. As a lawyer who specialized in tax law, Gorsuch is a natural fit for the Court, but he has no prior experience working on the highest court in the land. And Trump is also a far-right activist in his own right.
In recent years, Trump has railed against federal judges appointed by President Barack Obama, and has pledged to build a wall on the Mexico border. But it appears he and his supporters in the GOP are taking their threats over into the courts.
In April, Gorsuch was scheduled to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee in addition to the nomination hearing of Judge Merrick Garland to replace Scalia. But Republican Senators began threatening him in response to questions about his background.
Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., accused Gorsuch of “being part of a concerted effort to obstruct the appointment” of Obama’s nominee to the Supreme Court, Merrick Garland. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said in an interview that Gorsuch “undermined the integrity of the judicial branch” by asking to “keep quiet” about what he had “heard” about other cases.

In October, Trump tweeted that “any suggestion” that Obama and Garland were collaborating to block his election is a “scam.”

Trump has consistently defended his personal business interests by claiming there has been rampant “corruption” in Washington to the point where “it’s a joke” — a phrase that has been used by other presidential candidates.
In a recent opinion piece for CNN, Charles Johnson — a former conservative Supreme Court litigator who is now affiliated with Heritage Action for America — claimed that Trump is a “cuck” because he refuses to acknowledge the potential for serious or
