The Supreme Court did something and for once it’s not terrible news. You know the border wall construction that CNN keeps saying isn’t happening? Yeah, it’s gonna keep happening.
In a 5-4 vote the conservatives on the court decided NOT to stop the construction of Trump’s border wall between the U.S. and Mexico. The Trump Wall was under attack by the Axis of Snivel: The ACLU, the Sierra Club and the Southern Border Communities Coalition.
This comes after a federal appeals court ruled last month that they didn’t like the way it was being funded, or whatever thin excuse they propped up to make an ideological decision.

There will a LOT whimpering on social media, so enjoy this sample:
Every lower court to consider the question has ruled President Trump’s border wall illegal, and the Supreme Court’s temporary order does not decide the case.
We’ll be back before the Supreme Court soon to put a stop to Trump’s xenophobic border wall once and for all.

I strongly disagree with the 5 Supreme Court justices who are letting Trump keep taking money from U.S. military to build his racist border wall. The Constitution is crystal clear on this—the power of the purse belongs to Congress, not the president. Time for a refresher, SCOTUS? https://t.co/mIoOIeJ4cU

This next one is from before the decision but the crazy hysterics were too good to pass up.
🚨🚨🚨 Corruption Alert!!! That's right, after Trump raided the Pentagon's coffers for $260 MILLION for his racist border wall Sen. Shelby (R-AL) is now refilling the Pentagon's bloated balance sheet so that they can buy a ship built in…[checks notes] his home state of Alabama. https://t.co/IVbgkkBqdD

I’m laughing already about what Maddow will say tonight.
Anyhow, here’s more from ArkLaTex.
