MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow discussed the potential impact of the Supreme Court upholding the ruling that former President Donald Trump is ineligible to appear on Colorado’s ballot.

She highlighted the broader implications of such a decision, suggesting that it could affect his candidacy in multiple states.

Maddow also critiqued the concept of originalism and raised questions about the justices’ political inclinations, particularly in relation to Trump’s role in the Republican Party. (Trending: Bud Light Gets Bad News Ahead of Christmas)

Additionally, she mentioned the idea of disqualifying individuals or parties from democratic competition based on anti-democratic principles, citing historical and global precedents.

“I mean, if the Supreme Court were to affirm this ruling, he could be disqualified not just in Colorado but multiple states like the stakes couldn’t be higher. As you say they define themselves as originalists,” Maddow said.

“What is originalism mean? It means, in my layman’s take on it, it’s a fairytale, but if you listen to the way that they talk about it, it’s that there’s no interpretation.”

“Essentially that, all they’re doing is applying the language of the Constitution as the people who wrote that language intended it in their own time.”

She added, “I do think the justices want just not to think of them as political actors, but I think we understand that they are and they have politics that are in some ways quite discernible for some of them and the others it’s a little critic.”

“How do they feel about Donald Trump as the head of the Republican Party becomes a very hot question right now.”

Maddow added, “I mean, I will just raise one other issue. I mentioned this before, but the idea of a healthy democracy, nevertheless, having some sort of disqualifying process, an adjudicated process by which some people and some parties even are prohibited from participating in democratic competition because their point, because what they’ve shown, their track record or platform is anti-democratic in nature, is a thing.”

“That happens all over the world. It happens in our own history in Section 3 of the 14th Amendment.”
