The Hugh Hewitt argument

Vote for Trump because

IF he nominates to the Supreme Court one of the judges that he has put on his shortlist and

IF that judge is confirmed and

IF certain cases happen to come before the Court and

IF the the specific issues that the Court is asked to pass judgment on are the specific issues that conservatives care about and

IF that justice votes in the the way Hewitt expects and

IF at least four other justices agree

THEN certain unpleasantly liberal policies will be averted.

And it is on the grounds of his complete and unshakable faith in the stability of this astonishingly fragile house of cards that he ignores, and wants us all to ignore, everything we know about Trump’s ignorant and belligerent narcissism.
