Skip to comments.Examining a potential SCOTUS nominee's odd social media habits
Posted on 07/01/2018 5:51:58 AM PDT by mac_truck
On New Years Eve, Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Don Willett channeled Rick Astley by tweeting People of EarthIn 2018, @JusticeWillett will never: give you up, let you down, run around, desert you, make you cry, say goodbye, tell a lie, hurt you.
Before that, Willett, at the time a justice on the Supreme Court of Texas, tweeted out his son confusing Eminem and eminent, a picture of three puppies and a picture of cornbread shaped like his home state.
But with Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announcing his retirement on Wednesday, and Willetts name appearing on a list of Trumps potential Supreme Court nominees, the judges frequent tweeting last year raises questions of judicial impartiality.
Legal scholars say theres no legal provision prohibiting Supreme Court justices from sharing their opinions online or in speeches. The Supreme Court has maintained that the strict code of conduct that applies to lower court judges does not apply to them, but that doesnt that the legal community looks favorably on justices making public comments.

WTF is this idiot author talking about?
Attention potential nominees...bend over and spread’em because you’re about to undergo an extended anal exam until one of you is confirmed.
Libs and the media will be going through your life history, everything you ever said, wrote, read, or did. They’ll rifle through your trash, do background checks on your whole, extended family and all of their Tweets, FB, and other social media posts.
It’ll be a “war zone”.
Let Trump do the “blocking”, and try to ignore the media - best thing to do, is don’t even turn on the mainstream media.
I’m glad it isn’t me.
Odd that ‘questions of judicial impartiality’ didn’t stop Buzzy Ginsberg from voting on the terror nation travel restrictions case.
I’m afraid it looks like Justice Willett might be guilty of having a sense of humor and be prone on occasion to fits of laughter.
Apparently cornbread is some kind of “dog whistle”
Willett is guilty of openly supporting our Constitution including the Second Amendment.
See here, he means to prove that the judge is crazy, therefore unfit, and if nominated, it just shows how Trump is colluding with Russia to get himself reelected. Understand the logic? Its infallible ...
And so the Borking begins.
Lol...I prefer my cornbread to be shaped like Kansas.
Oh. I guess I will ignore that call from the White House about that job offer. I am not much of a fan of the cavity search.
(Snort) I knew that.
There it is. The intense anal scrutiny has begun. They are already analyzing social media posts. Tomorrow they go to the third grade teachers and ask them about the candidates. As soon as DMV opens, and after they have had their bathroom/coffee/chat breaks, they log on and search the records on the candidates. Tax offices, police departments, credit bureaus where democrat operatives work will see intense and secret examination of records, totally against the law and terms of employment.
When they find something they can use, lie or not, it goes to democrat central where it will be discussed and filed for use at the most opportune time.
can’t see anything from the author, Adia Robinson, before a few weeks ago.
could this be her LinkedIn page not updated as yet?

No, you need Neckbrace Ted Kennedy to return and lecture us all on morality in “Borking” judicial nominees.
I like Willett. He and Barton would great picks. Hint, maybe someone else should resign to open up two deserving seats on the Supreme Court?
UH OH! He’s a racist! The puppies are black, white and brown! What a racist!!!!! Unfit for the supreme court.
OOOOO! cornbread! isn’t that racist? quick! find something racist about it!
The left is dangerously insane. It is incapable of seeing HUMOR!!!
Leftist media jackals will be looking for ways to destroy him
But Eminem is white. This is just silly.
