With enormous implications on the line for both this election and future actions by individual states striking down a Presidential candidate, there was great interest in how the hearings on the Colorado case would play out with respect to questions of Trump’s own ballot eligibility.
Oral arguments in the case were made Thursday, with a decision likely to come back in days or weeks, rather than the usual timeline of months due to the nature of the case.
Let’s take a look at what the generally hostile network media has to say bout the hearings:
The Supreme Court seemed skeptical of the idea that Colorado can exclude former President Donald Trump from the state’s primary ballot, with justices on both sides of the ideological spectrum warning during oral arguments of the consequences of ruling him ineligible for the White House.
The case, known as Trump v. Anderson, involves whether Trump is disqualified from holding the presidency again because of his conduct surrounding the Jan. 6, 2021, assault on the U.S. Capitol. The dispute puts the nine justices into new legal territory, and their opinion could have sweeping implications for the 2024 presidential race.
The case hinges on Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, which bars officials who have sworn to support the Constitution from serving in government if they engage in insurrection. The provision was enacted in 1868 to prevent former Confederates from holding office, and laid mostly dormant for more than 150 years.
[…] Over the course of two hours of oral arguments, the justices questioned the notion that states have the power to determine whether a presidential candidate is disqualified from holding office under Section 3 and thus exclude them from the ballot. Several seemed especially concerned about the nationwide implications of such a decision. At one point, Chief Justice John Roberts said that argument was “at war with the whole thrust of the 14th Amendment and very ahistorical.” — CBSNews
Even the Justice Biden appointed to the bench seemed to be very skeptical of Colorado’s claims.
That might explain why Trump was in such a good mood at his presser after it wrapped up.
In that presser, Trump reminded the GOP exactly why he was so VERY good at bending the media to his will the first time he ran. With the cameras giving live coverage of his presser — he leveraged his captive audience to get HIS message out ahead of the soundbite they WANTED to walk away with.
He’s been doing this for decades. It’s second nature to him.
In other words he’s rounding back into his old form — just when he’ll need it the most.
