"We need to rule from a place of love, not hate," he told the Daily News. Well Now Trump will put in someone that says we need to go by the laws as written not legislate from the bench!!!

Lyndon B "I'll have those n*ggers voting Democrat for a hundred years!" Johnson put this guy on the bench,so you know that he is a moral authority. /s By the way, you aren't supposed to rule at all from the bench. Probably a good thing that he is retiring.
