He’s all for Scalia now, Trump is. Swore to appoint justices just like him. Take this vow as you would any other Trump claim. Since we’re on the topic though, here is a story from December. Scalia had made some comments during an oral argument that liberals were able to wrench out of context. Scalia had referenced the “mismatch” theory propounded by Stuart Taylor and Richard Sander. Displaying their ignorance, the usual suspects howled their outrage. They strutted their moral superiority and pronounced anathemas on the Justice.
Trump was asked about it on CNN and naturally, because his instincts and lifelong habits are liberal, and because he cannot be bothered to check facts, he joined in the condemnation of Justice Scalia. For the record.
