Letter: It’s called the ‘Supreme’ Court for a reason

(J. Scott Applewhite | AP Photo) The Supreme Court is seen under stormy skies in Washington, Thursday, June 20, 2019.

Rulings by our Supreme Court are supposed to be the final word on disputes among us. That was the intent of the authors of our Constitution, and that’s why it’s called the “Supreme” Court.

But Donald Trump doesn’t see it that way. He wants to monkey with the court’s ruling that bars the citizenship question from our census questionnaire.

Trump’s interference is another example of his authoritarian predilections and disregard for the rule of law.

It’s also further evidence that he should be impeached by the House and put out of office by the Senate.
