SCOTUS Scuttled

The Supreme Court of the U.S. is en route to its own demise, thanks to Donald Trump and his followers, who packed the court with incompetent right-wing justices. Now the court has suffered a leak of its draft judgment of abortion prohibition, in itself an unprecedented lapse.

The end result will be, over time, that the court will lose relevance. Its only power is its influence—it has no means of carrying out its decisions and must depend on the president and Congress. To the degree that the U.S. citizens lose respect for the court, its potency shrivels. And the leaked decision to reduce access to abortion goes against the will of the majority of the U.S. population.

This may be the greatest damage yet inflicted by Donald Trump.
