Maybe a payback for the State of Union Speech?
It’s fun to contemplate that. But, IMO, Scalia and Roberts are not men who would retaliate against a President. If what is being considered Constitutional they will uphold it regardless of their opinion of the President.
I can't believe that anybody on The Court (with the exclusion of The 0's pets and appointees) would lower themselves to that level.
For a subjuvenile Cook County ward heeler's attempt at intimidation?
The only thing matching the character of that crap would have been if the entire Court had flipped Zero the bird.
This decision, OTOH, is simply a case of judicial review of a great big steaming pile of BS, and the only people on that court that will support it have been bought and paid for to claim that it's rosebuds.
Payback doesn't have a thing to do with it.
....until we get to deliver some in November.
