David Waldman is joined by Greg Dworkin, who reminds us “It’s the Supreme Court, Stupid.” President Obama chose “a serious man and exemplary judge”, D.C. Circuit Judge Merrick Garland. Why Garland? Why now? Republicans were really hoping they could Bork someone.

Of all politicians, Ted Cruz would probably be one of the most likely to have strange bedfellows.

PBS runs a story about how Donald Trump has helped create a Republican big tent that appeals even to white supremacists who don’t normally vote in elections. Trump heads to Cleveland, the place in the nation to go to for the latest in riot equipment and accessories. Five sheriff’s deputies suspended following the violent Trump rally in North Carolina. Doomed oh so many times previously, is Trump now finally heading to his yuge November doom?

Gun News Today: Good guy with a gun temporarily misidentified as bad, police funeral to follow. Yes, she can bring her concealed carry weapon with her on a playdate, but what idiot would make a playdate with her? Officer mansplains weapon safety too effectively for his colleague.
