Frequent decency dictates that one ought to by no means kick an individual once they’re down—however it’s completely acceptable to take action when the particular person in query is a wannabe tyrant who’s made it his skilled aim to make life hell for anybody who disagrees with him about something. That is what we assume the Supreme Court docket was pondering when it instructed Florida governor Ron DeSantis that he may f–k off along with his ridiculous drag present regulation.
On Thursday, SCOTUS declined to permit the enforcement of the DeSantis-championed Florida regulation that bans youngsters from attending drag reveals, which stored in place a decrease courtroom ruling and rejected state officers’ request to slender a June injunction to use to only a single Orlando restaurant which had challenged the regulation. Did SCOTUS really take DeSantis being an authorized jerk in thoughts when it made its ruling? No. Did it use the phrases “Expensive Ron, Get f–ked?” on official courtroom letterhead? Additionally no, although we assume that’s the way it should have felt when the Florida governor obtained the information.

The Supreme Court docket information comes amidst horrifically unhealthy, you-should-just-pack-it-in ballot numbers for DeSantis, who doesn’t seem to have a snowball’s likelihood in hell of profitable the GOP nomination after being seen because the occasion front-runner much less a yr in the past.
