Leftists RAGE over unanimous SCOTUS decision to keep Trump on ballot

"While the Supreme Court allowed Donald Trump back on the ballot on technical legal grounds, this was in no way a win for Trump."

Following the Supreme Court’s 9-0 ruling that Colorado cannot remove Trump from the ballot, leftist pundits and lawmakers called for the Supreme Court to be "dissolved," criticizing the decision as disappointing and a betrayal to democracy.

President of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington Noah Bookbinder, the group that brought the case in Colorado to remove Trump from the ballot, said that while the court allowed Trump to remain on the ballot, they didn't take the opportunity to "exonerate Trump," which is something that the court was not petitioned to rule upon.

"While the Supreme Court allowed Donald Trump back on the ballot on technical legal grounds, this was in no way a win for Trump. The Supreme Court had the opportunity in this case to exonerate Trump, and they chose not to do so," he said, according to The Weekend MSNBC producer Kyle Griffin.

Keith Olbermann wrote that the Supreme Court has "betrayed democracy" with it’s ruling, adding that "Its members including Jackson, Kagan and Sotomayor have proved themselves inept at reading comprehension."

"And collectively the "court" has shown itself to be corrupt and illegitimate. It must be dissolved."

Rep Adam Schiff wrote, "The Supreme Court moved rapidly to clear Donald Trump to appear on the ballot. Will it move just as quickly to reject his false claims of immunity so he can appear in court? Or will justice delayed again be justice denied?"

MSNBC cut away from Trump’s speech at Mar-a-Lago on the ruling as he began to talk about the other cases the Biden Department of Justice and other states have brought against him, with anchor Katy Tur saying that instead of a prepared speech, Trump issued a "word salad" on "whatever comes to mind"

The Nation's justice correspondent Elie Mystal reposted a piece he wrote for the outlet last week, writing, "Anyway, as I said last week: The Supreme Court must be stopped."

Mystal wrote in the piece that "The Supreme Court must be made to pay a price—a political, institutional, professional price—for its ongoing political thuggery lightly disguised as jurisprudence."

Speaking with MSNBC after the decision, Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold said, "My larger reaction is disappointment. I do believe that states should be able, under our Constitution, to bar oath-breaking insurrectionists. And ultimately this decision leads open or leaves open the door for Congress to act to pass authorizing legislation. But we know that Congress is a nearly nonfunctioning body. So ultimately, it will be up to the American voters to save our democracy in November."
