    He’d be a breath of fresh air and he would have fairly incisive questions from the bench and, let’s face it, we wouldn’t know how he was going to rule on anything beforehand.

    Well, maybe Hollywood stuff or Intellectual Property stuff.Report

    He could appoint is his sister, Maryanne Trump Barry, who is a retired federal judge from the Third Circuit.Report

        But heck, she’s older than the Justices who should go ahead and retire.

        The best option is Allison Jones Rushing from the 4th Circuit, who is only 38, and who would thus sit on the court for perhaps 40 years.

        One thing people often overlook is that statues of justice never depict little old ladies like RBG, who looked Ruth Buzzi’s “Gladys” character from Laugh In. No, the statues are pretty clear that justice is a stern looking hottie with a scale, a sword, and a nice rack. I want a justice who looks like the “Justice” of the statues, statues so hot that John Ashcroft would hide them behind a curtain to protect the innocent eyes of young-uns. Of the potential nominees under consideration, Allison Rushing comes closest to meeting that standard.Report

    Considering how much that a Supreme Court justice has to read, President Trump would probably be one of the least qualified people in the U.S to be a justice.Report
