Donald Trump and Senate Republicans Led by Mitch McConnell "Flip" the Ultraliberal 9th Circuit With "Shockwave" of Conservative Judges

Buh. Buh. Buh.

Buh muh princibuhls!!!!

MUH PRINCIBUHLSSSSS!!!

Trump has taken the San Francisco-based Circuit that was dominated by Democratic appointees and substantially changed it.

He's now appointed 10 judges to the Circuit, more than 1/3 of the active judges there.

According to Ninth Circuit Judge Milan D. Smith Jr., Trump has "effectively flipped the Circuit."

Almost flipped, as RedState points out; Democrat appointed judges still outnumber Republican appointed judges 16-13.

And I imagine that there are a few liberals in the Republican appointees.

Zombie points out:

HOWEVER, apparently there are some esoteric rules about who gets to decide on various aspects of cases, and in that arena the conservative judges actually outnumber the liberal ones.

But obviously the court isn't staffed solely with Hawaiian judges any longer.

This is the LATimes whining about it:

To be sure, some of the new appointees to the 9th Circuit have quickly won the respect of their colleagues. But the rapid influx of so many judges -- most without judicial experience -- has put strains upon the court and stirred criticism among judges appointed by both Democratic and Republican presidents.
