Speaks for itself. We’ve been beyond satire for a long time but this one still got me.

    Wouldn’t their ruling not apply retroactively? Or if he declares it now it wouldn’t mean anything since he isn’t the sitting president?

      Their ruling isn’t new law, it’s telling people what the law already said. Even all the stuff they made up along the way.

        And the definition of “official” is so gray it could be anything and not anything! Gotta love vauge interpretations from what is supposed to be our finest judges.

          But even when prosecuting the pres for unofficial acts nothing involved in committing any official acts can be used as evidence in court.

          I particularly like that they hinted that some things in the trial were official and some things weren’t, but they’re not going to tell anyone what they are at this time, we have to wait for the appeal to work its way back up. At which point the election will be over and they’ll just say “psyche, it’s all official”.
