Judge On Trump’s SCOTUS List Made Trump Jokes On Twitter

May 18, 2016 3:12 p.m.

A lesson to judges who use social media: Be careful of the jokes you make mocking a presidential candidate. You never know if you’ll end up on his or her list of potential Supreme Court nominees

Don Willett, one of the judges named by Donald Trump Wednesday as a possible pick for the nation’s highest court, is best known as a conservative justice on the Texas Supreme Court. But for those on legal Twitter, he is also known to be pretty funny. Willett’s Twitter feed is a glorious litany of clever memes, silly gifs and 140-character jokes. Not surprisingly (though, now, ironically) some of those jokes have been made at Trump’s expense and have mocked the outrageous twists his campaign has taken.
