It’s turning out to be another bad year for professional Never Trumpers. Not only are they not getting their way when it comes to Democratic witness demands in the Senate’s impeachment trial, but they’re also utterly embarrassing themselves on a routine basis on social media and during cable news network appearances where their lack of self-awareness is put on display for all to see.
The most recent example of this comes by way of Washington Post “conservative” columnist Jennifer Rubin who, when last we left you, was fawning like a school girl over House Intel Chief Adam Schiff’s (D-CA) presentation in the Senate trial. “Every American should be proud and should know what [Schiff] says is true and right,” she swooned as those of us in the cheap seats tried and failed to contain our laughter.
can you imagine if Sekulow and Cipollone had to try a case in front of a real judge? bhahaahhahahahaha

Even with Rubin’s well-documented history of astonishingly ignorant opinions, it was still pretty remarkable to see a self-described “recovering lawyer” post such a stunningly bad (and ill-informed) hot take when search engines are literally just a click away:

Why is the Chief Justice of The Supreme Court just a lawn ornament? How does that make any sense?

Also Cipollone was a partner on the SCOTUS case of Compucredit v Greenwood in 2012 for Kirkland and Ellis, which he won

“Mr. Sekulow won a string of Supreme Court cases in the late 1980s and 1990s by arguing that bans on various forms of religious expression in public places violated the practitioners’ right to free speech.” – New York Times

Perhaps the most important point, however, was this one:
She praised Schiff, who fabricated most of his argument, I don’t think her opinion matters.

BTW, to say her tweet was seriously ratioed would be the understatement of the month:
In summary: Jen Rubin’s credibility crisis is very, very real.
