It makes little difference. 90+ percent of all case law is created at lower levels. By not accepting the appeal they are saying this has already been decided. There is already 200 years of precedence.

Trump Tweets

Hard to believe that @FoxNews will be interviewing sleazebag & totally discredited former FBI Director James Comey, & also corrupt politician Adam “Shifty” Schiff. Fox is trying sooo hard to be politically correct, and yet they were totally shut out from the failed Dem debates!

Both Commiecast MSNBC & Fake News CNN are watching their Ratings TANK. Fredo on CNN is dying. Don’t know why @FoxNews wants to be more like them? They’ll all die together as other outlets take their place. Only pro Trump Fox shows do well. Rest are nothing. How’s Shep doing?

Problem is, Congress has ceded a lot of power to the executive branch over the last century or so. Not all at once but bit-by-bit. This case could be another "bit" in the long trend.

Nah, he didn't really say "Commiecast" did he? Ok, he did. But he didn't write that. It's too clever and required knowledge he doesn't have.

Jesus Christ what a prick.

So Debbie Dingell is now supposed to give Trump some kind of personal loyalty because he approved funeral service honors for her late husband who served as a representative for 59 years? Yeah, you read that right. He was the longest serving Congressman in American history and Trump thinks that approving top memorial and funeral services for him was some kind of magnanimous gesture on his part? This reminds me of when Trump got all huffy because Amanda Knox wouldn't support him for president because he gave some money to her defense fund earlier ...which he probably took out of the Trump Foundation so not even his own money.

This guy thinks everyone owes him.

So, are we "great again"? If this sorry excuse for a man is what is considered as "great" or "the Chosen One, no thank you. You can have him.

And it's pretty clear he doesn't owe anyone that does anything for him.

More campaign ads: Trump believes the White House is his personal property. Ad in what Stacy said.

I agree...and it's that attitude which got him in the position he's in now. Quid. Effing. Pro. Effing. Quo.

Doubt Donny wrote that. Not enough random capitals and spelling errors, and the sentences are complex and reasonably formed. More likely his psychopath press secretary.
