Trump Nominates Texas Supreme Court Justice Don Willett to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals

Twitter idiots love him because he tweets and hence validates their time-wasting, but I understand that he's a pretty solid conservative.

He tweaked Trump on twitter before, but thankfully, Trump isn't holding a grudge about it, or else his Gatekeepers are hiding that from him.

Solid pick, I think. He was ecstatic about the Neil Gorsuch nomination, so that's something.

Willett has frequently been listed as a good conservative Supreme Court choice. I guess this'll do, for now.

Trump also nominated former Texas Solicitor General James Ho:

Ho, a naturalized U.S. citizen, moved to this country with his family from Taiwan when he was a young child. He received a bachelor’s degree from Stanford University and his law degree from the University of Chicago School of Law.

A former state solicitor general, Ho also clerked for former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas; helped lead the civil rights division of the Justice Department under George W. Bush; and has a reputation as a big gun in his private appellate practice.

Ted Cruz says he's "thrilled" by both nominations.

Credit/Correction: First of all, thanks to Flounder for the story. Also thanks to him for reminding me again that James Ho had also been nominated.

Also, thanks to Flounder for that reminder, because I saw then that I had conflated Willett's resume (Texas Supreme Court Justice) with Ho's (Texas Solicitor General) in the headline.
