Even trump now believes the "supreme" court is hopelessly politicized.

"Why would anybody be surprised that the Supreme Court has ruled against me, they always do! It is unprecedented to be handing over Tax Returns, & it creates a terrible precedent for future Presidents," Trump said in a post early Wednesday morning. "The Supreme Court has lost its honor, prestige, and standing, & has become nothing more than a political body, with our Country paying the price."

He doesn't acknowledge his role in causing the problem though.

He's a person who acts from a purely transactional perspective, so clearly anyone he appoints or helps is expected to toe the line. Not doing so is considered a betrayal and then they are thrown under the bus; it's entirely predictable.

It's more simple = he has been accustomed to receiving favors for his money and/or influence. He expects this across aboard. HOWEVER questions are being raised
with many suggesting judges be removed. It seems to me some of these courts are no longer granting decisions for him per se as in backing off. Putting the law first
and Trump somewhere down the line. The judge that granted the special master is being requested to be removed from anything Trump.

Trump has a lot to hide such as .....his actual net worth. Investigative Journalist David Cay Johnson said long ago no way could Trump be a billionaire based on the number
of times has filed bankruptcy.(???) Johnston had been covering the family since Trump was a very young boy.

WHERE OH WHERE are all our resident Righties who were positively orgasmic over Trump naming three Conservative Justices and now having those Justices turn on their favorite idol.
Their silence on this topic is absolutely DEAFENING!!!

Just goes to show that whiners of all political persuasions complain that the court is politicizied when they don't get their way.

Uh, no. Fox News is hopelessly ideological, but when Rupert Murdoch threw Donald Trump overboard, that wasn't him showing bipartisan ideology; that was him saying that Trump was no longer good for the right wing brand.

Trump's problem is that he's been the head of corporations that he owns for so long that he's become used to his word being law. He never really adjusted to being in a position of relatively limited authority, like President of the United States.

BELIEVES IT???? He did it with the three radical extremist practicing Catholics he and McConnell ushered onto the SC Bench. Protestants have been using Catholics and their adherence to Catholic Canon Law for centuries. Protestants are funny that way.

We don't actually think that majority voting block of 5 radical extremist practicing Catholics is an accident do we???? WE can't be that dense......can we????

Where Donnie got it wrong was he thought they would go along with his power grab. I am not a lapsed Catholic. I am a former Catholic, NEVER going back. But I understand Catholics better than Donnie ever will.

tRump's problems go far deeper than that.

Yep. Some here cited his business experience as a good quality, but my concern was exactly what you expressed because public service is nothing like running a private company where your accountability is fairly limited. Someone with experience running a public company would be closer in that they are held accountable to the board of directors and shareholders.
