How Dumb Are They?

This is a dangerous question to ask, especially in a political scenario since the answer is frequently depressing but still, sometimes the entertainment value makes it worthwhile. Jazz Shaw at Hot Air is reporting that someone in the Trump circle is suggesting that Notorious RBG* might be talked into retiring if Trump promised to nominate Merrick Garland to replace her thus maintaining the balence of power on the Supreme court.

Don't know if Ginsburg is actually that gullible, but I suspect Trump is thinking that he could safely nominate Garland, fulfilling his end of the deal, knowing that the judiciary committee would never send the nomination out to the Senate. Which would "force" Trump to make another pick from his list of preferred nominees.

*The hip hop name for Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
