Closer looks at Trump disqualified in Colorado, a Festivus miracle

Happy Festivusfeats of strength, airing of grievances, and maybe a Festivus pole! How about a Festivus miracle? I have one for you, Trump Is Disqualified from 2024 Ballot, Colorado Court Says in Shock Ruling: A Closer Look.

Seth takes a closer look at the Colorado Supreme Court ruling that Donald Trump is disqualified from the 2024 presidential race because he violated the Constitution by engaging in insurrection against the United States.
I know I wrote, "I think the insurrection clause applies, but, like much of the rest of the 14th Amendment, the courts are too timid or ideologically opposed to enforce it," but I'm glad to be wrong. Like I wrote, a Festivus miracle!

Seth wasn't alone in making jokes about the ruling. Stephen Colbert Colorado Kicks Trump Off Primary Ballot | Clarence Thomas’ Greed | Trump Keeps Quoting Hitler.

Colorado’s Supreme Court ruled that Trump is disqualified from holding office, we’re learning more about the origins of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’ love of bribe-taking, and the former president refuses to stop quoting Hitler on the campaign trail.
I'll take the rest of the monologue as an airing of grievances.

Speaking of which, watch "The Indict-Mare Before Christmas" A Late Show Animated Holiday Classic Narrated By Liam Neeson.

Donald Trump, on trial for 91 counts of naughtiness, tries a wild gambit: getting Santa to testify that he is on the nice list, pardoning him of all charges. Santa refuses, but that doesn’t stop Trump as he enlists the help of Elon Musk to turn him into Santa himself to clear his name. Can the real Santa stop Trumpy Claus in time to save Christmas?
Ho, ho, ho and a Festivus pole!

Stay tuned for another Saturn Awards entry tonight and Christmas Eve tomorrow. I love holidays!
