Trump Dissed by Trump Appointee

“This is an extraordinary case. A sitting president who did not prevail in his bid for re-election has asked for federal court help in setting aside the popular vote based on disputed election administration issues he plainly could have raised before the vote occurred. ...

”In his reply brief, plaintiff 'asks that the Rule of Law be followed.' It has been."

-- Federal Judge Brett H. Ludwig, Milwaukee, a Trump appointee, in dismissing yet another Trump lawsuit to try to overturn the 2020 election, as reported in The New York TimesIt's one of more than 50 such lawsuits Trump has filed since Nov. 3. He keeps losing, and losing in this manner—insulted by his own appointee—but at the same time what he's doing sets a horrible precedent. Of course, his very existence sets a horrible precedent.
