Deputy Director of the DNC Keith Ellison unloaded on the Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision to uphold the President’s ‘travel ban’ Tuesday, bizarrely suggesting Trump bribed Justice Neil Gorsuch ahead of the ruling.
Ellison was speaking with CNN when he was asked to comment on the court’s historic ruling; saying the decision will ultimately end up in the “dustbin of history.”
Rep. Keith Ellison reacts to the travel ban ruling: “As long as [Trump] puts a very thin veneer of national security on top of all that discrimination and racism, they will buy it. In other words, as long as a pig has some lipstick on it, it's fine." https://t.co/TCZUC1dYCN pic.twitter.com/S4ad1mAa3z

“This is going to enliven us. This is going to inspire us to push even harder,” said Ellison.
“It just proves that if you steal and rip-off a Supreme Court Justice, then you can try and jam any kind of nasty, racist, ugly policy you can down the throats of the American people,” he added.
