Trump Rages at Colorado Supreme Court after Getting Kicked Off Ballot

( – Donald Trump’s campaign spokesman said the Colorado Supreme Court was colluding with a left-wing “Soros-funded” scheme to prevent the 45th President from running again.

The scolding came in response to what any reasonable observer would call a shocking move. The Supreme Court of Colorado, in a December 19th ruling, kicked Trump off the state’s 2024 ballot by claiming that he “engaged in insurrection” in violation of the 14th amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

Though liberal media outlets are predictably praising the decision—The Atlantic magazine called the ruling “true originalism“—legal scholars are pointing out that “insurrection” hasn’t been legally defined through the judiciary or legislative process. Indeed, Trump has not been convicted of that crime. Despite claims from the left that Trump is somehow responsible for the Jan. 6, 2021 incident at the Capitol, it is difficult to see how the former President’s public statements calling on his supporters to “peacefully and patriotically” protest could be considered support for violence, let alone insurrection.

The 14th Amendment was ratified in order to prevent officers of the former Confederacy in the Civil War from attaining public office.

Steven Cheung, Trump’s campaign spokesman, had sharp words for the Colorado court. He noted that the Colorado Supreme Court was “all-Democrat-appointed,” and that the court was cooperating with liberal groups to “scheme” on behalf of “crooked Joe Biden.” Given Cheung’s rhetorical style, it is easy to see why Trump chose him for the role.

Cheung added that Democratic Party officials are paranoid about Trump’s growing lead over incumbent Joe Biden. President Biden’s obvious decline into senility along with the record inflation during his tenure has caused even loyal Democratic voters to question his fitness for office.

The ruling from the CSC was 4-3, and the Court stayed its own ruling until January 4th pending a review by the U.S. Supreme Court. While no one can read the tea leaves at the nation’s highest court, it seems extremely unlikely that SCOTUS will uphold this ruling from Colorado.
