Is it Friday the 13th?
For those of you who didn’t take out lots of $$$ in student loans for law school, “5th Amendment grounds” means “due process.” Don’t worry, this isn’t over. Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?
What a crock of shit. Where is my press pass? The Constitution says I am entitled to one.
WHERE IS MY PRESS PASS???
There is actually a lot to unpack in this case. In addition to an appeal, the White House has lots of options. This was a TRO hearing, but there will still be a contested hearing unless the White House drops the issue. But they can also institute a new set of rules for anyone wanting a press pass, including all the current pass holders. IOW – they can (and should) create a process for issuing and revoking passes so that they can give Acosta due process the next time he acts out during a presser.
Meanwhile, in other news, I seem to have my internet service restored. We’ll see how it goes.
And now, back to your regularly scheduled weeping, wailing, and gnashing of teeth.
