News that I missed, courtesy of The Babylon Bee:

 

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Bowing to public pressure, Donald Trump has agreed to remove a popular mainstay of the Supreme Court nomination process: the swimsuit competition.

“This is long overdue,” said law professor Edgar Ford. “It’s time to put out the message that judges of all shapes and sizes can rule on Constitutional issues. Not just those who look good in a bikini.”

The swimsuit competition has been considered controversial ever since it caused the otherwise-qualified Robert Bork not to get a seat at the Supreme Court in 1987. More recently, the swimsuit competition was why the Republicans wouldn’t even consider Barack Obama’s nominee Merrick Garland, instead waiting for the election of Donald Trump, whom supporters consider to have a better eye for such things.

It will be a new era selecting a Supreme Court Justice without the swimsuit competition, and Trump made it clear he made this choice grudgingly. “People don’t want it anymore, so I got rid of it,” Trump told the press. “But let’s not pretend people like Supreme Court Justices for their personalities.”

Go here to read the rest.  Images of some of the current Justices in bikinis just flashed through my brain.  Time for another mind wipe!

  1. Merrick Garland would have followed Obama into eliminating the Second Amendment with a gun ban and our Eighth Amendment against cruel and unusual punishment which is being used against Aaron and Melissa Klein, Jack Phillips and Baronnelle Stuzman to remove conscience rights and impose atheism on the people through Supreme Court dictum. No conscience, no soul, no unalienable human rights. Only government rights by Supreme Court decisions. If Merrick Garland was not chosen as Justice it is because Garland did not support our Constitution, even after he would have taken an oath to uphold the Constitutional rights of the people who would have come before him.

  2. Didn’t Ruth Ginsburg do a cameo appearance years back on Baywatch? Sure sure..she and Mark Hasselhoff were an item and Ruth was flailing in the surf… luckily she was wearing her swimsuit from the nineteen twenties.

    (my feeble attempt to help with mind wipes.)

  3. Somehow I think Trump would be the last person to get rid of the swimsuit section in any competition.
