The U.S. Court of Appeals just unanimously struck down Donald Trump’s election appeal in Pennsylvania. The opinion was written by Judge Stephanos Bibas, a Trump appointee. No surprise. In fact there was a literally 100% chance of this outcome. Judges’ biases only come into play when a case could theoretically go either way. If you go into court with literally no case, as Trump keeps doing, it’s an automatic loss, no matter who the judge is.

If Trump had lost the deciding state by something like 500 votes, the courts could have kicked the election to him. But at these margins, it was never possible. If Trump thought his appointed judges would save him at these margins, he has no understanding of how anything works.

   

And if you thought Trump-appointed judges were going to magically hand him the election after he lost by margins this large, you’ve been listening to too many doomsday pundits who either didn’t know what they were talking about, or purposely misled you for attention. These things always come down to what is and is not possible. They never come down to someone waving a magic wand.
