The Trump administration is losing court battles at an unprecedented rate, with many losses coming because officials failed to follow basic rules in changing policy. Federal judges have ruled against the administration at least 63 times since Trump took office, The Washington Post reported.

"What they have consistently been doing is short-circuiting the process," Georgetown Law professor William Buzbee told the Post, adding that the administration doesn't "even come close" to providing legitimate explanations for the rule changes, "making it very easy for the courts to reject them because they're not doing their homework."

Trump told us all we'd get tired of winning.

If the last two years are his idea of winning, he's 100% right.

Fat Nixon is 100% effective at wasting tax dollars.

Just the cost alone to fly his fat ass to Florida to golf every weekend is what $3,000,000?

--Federal judges have ruled against the administration at least 63 times

" collectively, the 63 rulings stand only for the proposition that plenty of federal judges don't like President Trump and/or disagree with the substance of the administrative actions they are reviewing.

Almost half of the 63 rulings in question (29 of them) came from jurisdictions within the left-wing Ninth Circuit. This percentage is wildly out-of-line with a random distribution. In other words, the numbers the Post touts are the result of extreme bias. "

"That's not the only bias. According to the Post, 45 of the decisions came from judges appointed by a Democratic president. Three came from magistrate judges who are not appointed by the president. Only 15 (less than one-fourth of the total) came from presidents appointed by a Republican -- George W. Bush in most cases.

And keep in mind that many members of the class from which Republican-appointed judges are selected dislike President Trump. Indeed, the Republican president who selected most of these judges is a world-class Never Trumper.

Many of the adverse rulings cited by the Post involve findings that the Trump administration didn't jump through this or that hoop in the Administrative Procedure Act. Fair enough, perhaps. But would these judges give a Democratic president a pass in similar circumstances?

I'd bet that many Democratic appointed judges would do just that."

Yeah... don't they know they can appeal to the Supreme Court (with a conservative majority) or are Republicans too stupid to know even that much about how the legal system works?
