    The Colorado state trial judge found that Trump had engaged in insurrection but was not thereby barred from running for president. This appeal followed.

    I'm cautiously optimistic that the Colorado Supreme Court will bar Trump from the primary ballot but if they do, the U.S. Supreme Court will swiftly grant certiorari. At that point, all bets are off. Accepting the trial Judge's findings as true, he should be barred but judges in general hate getting involved in political disputes.

    I think the reasoning I'd recommend to the U.S. Supreme Court is that the 14th Amendment gives Congress the power to dissolve the ban and the Constitution itself gives the Senate the power to hear and decide impeachment cases. The Senate did hear and decide this case. The Supreme Court is not the appellate court for the Senate. We will see.

    It is a very interesting "tangent" to the 2024 race.

    I feel a little sorry for the housekeepers working for Donald J. Trump. They are probably always having to clean up the room after Trump's rages and throws food around.

    It's actually even nastier than it sounds. "Fressen" means "to feed" as in livestock. "Essen" is "to eat" which is what humans do.
