Anonymous author: Trump proposed doing away with judges multiple times

The anonymous senior administration official who wrote a New York Times op-ed critical of President Trump last year claims in a new book that the president repeatedly proposed getting rid of judges, Axios reported Monday.

“The president has proposed doing away with judges on more than one occasion,” the anonymous author reportedly wrote, claiming Trump said too many of his policies were getting stuck in legal limbo.

The author writes: "‘Can we just get rid of the judges? Let's get rid of the f---ing judges,’" Trump fumed one morning. "‘There shouldn't be any at all, really.’"

“He went a step further and asked his legal team to draft up a bill and send it to Congress to reduce the number of federal judges,” they continued in an excerpt published by Axios.

“Staff ignored the outburst and the wacky request.”

7. Yup, and roughly a quarter of the electorate unquestioningly

supports whatever he does, lying to themselves whenever necessary to remain the good people. Close to another half supports him because they support some things, but overwhelmingly to oppose out-of-control liberalism such as under the Obama administration that's growing dangerously extreme.

11. He wants absolute power

And will try bypassing all of Congress, and all judges using loopholes , and weaponizing our government and our laws to use against us. That's his patterns.

12. Coupled with absolute ignorance

I sense that it will be his undoing, given a propensity for gross miscalculation.
