Today, the Supreme Court’s landmark ruling on LGBTQ workplace protections and sanctuary cities was a slap in the face of all those who had placed their bets on Cheeto Jesus to deliver unto them the judicial salvation they feel is owed to them.
Conservative writer Varad Mehta: “Trump lost the election today” —
The whole point of the Federalist Society judicial project, the whole point of electing Trump to implement it, was to deliver Supreme Court victories to social conservatives. If they can't deliver anything that basic, there's no point for either. The damage is incalculable.

‘The damage is incalculable’. That’s right. A whole bunch of conservatives saw Trump for what he was and didn’t care because he would deliver them the Supreme Court they’d dreamed of for years that would stop all this hippie dippie welfare state nonsense Obummer was determined to foist on their America.
Conservative Tool, Erick Erickson:
All those evangelicals who sided with Trump in 2016 to protect them from the cultural currents, just found their excuse to stay home in 2020 thank to Trump’s Supreme Court picks.

From your stupid mouth to Godess’ ears pal! Anyone else need a tissue? Oh —
Mark Levin (R-Whine) does:
2. These things used to matter. Not so much anymore. Roberts no longer pretends to be a judge; now Gorsuch has left his robe behind as well (and it's not the first time).

Just hang in there homey, the WHAAAAAMBULANCE is on its way.
But it gets better. The Supreme Court has also announced what cases they *won’t* be ruling on, many of which include Second Amendment cases.

The GOP and conservatives have used the Supreme Court as a rallying cry for voter turnout amongst their base for years. Now, when they are in most need of a new narrative to generate enthusiasm — especially in states where the GOP Senate is most at risk — they have found themselves abandoned by the very institution they sought to control even if it meant putting a traitor in the White House.
It’s nice to wake up to good news for a change. It’s even better to wake up and know that for Trump supporters it’s just the opposite.
So let us celebrate a great day for equality with a delicious sip of wingnut tears.
and I wouldn’t get too comfy in that chair, Brett. Not after November.
