Of course, there isn’t anything surprising about this.
But it is staggering how it is all just right up in your face.
A federal judge who partially blocked President Trump’s plans to build a border wall along the United States-Mexico border previously donated almost $30,000 to former President Obama, other Democrats, and a political action committee.
U.S. District Court Judge Haywood Gilliam, an Obama appointee confirmed in 2014, donated $6,900 to Barack Obama’s debut campaign for president and $14,500 to his reelection campaign, according to federal election records. The same records also indicate he contributed $4,500 to the Democratic National Committee in 2012 and, between 2012 and 2015, sent $3,100 to the Covington Burling LLP PAC, which supports candidates from both parties. His contributions totaled $29,000.
Gilliam made the donations, first reported by the Epoch Times, prior to serving as a U.S. District judge. He had said during his confirmation hearing that he “would base my decisions solely on the facts of each case and the applicable precedent, without regard to any political ideology or motivation,” and that “any personal views would not interfere in any way with my ability to neutrally apply the law.”
Gilliam is one of three federal judges who have donated to Democratic candidates in the past and recently ruled against the Trump administration.
The wall is no longer relevant anyway, because Trump is just letting all of these people come in if they have kids. Furthermore, he’s saying he’s going to legally bring in the most people ever because he only wants foreigners working at the factories he claims he’s going to build.
So it is hard to even get upset about Democrats thwarting Trump. It is just too upsetting that Trump is thwarting his own agenda to really even pay attention to the stuff you expect Democrats to be doing.
