I think subby is saying that since this was tweeted at around the same time the Trump v Vance opinion was released, it's a celebration.

I wholeheartedly support making Cookie Monster a cheerleader for presidential oversight, much like Billy Joel is a champion for evolution.

At 10:08 AM, Cookie Monster say - now is a good time for a little celebration. *wink*

Actually, they stagger the release of decisions by 10 minutes, and in order based on the writer of the opinion.

Roberts wrote both the opinions for Trump v. Vance and Trump v. Mazars USA, LLP, whereas Gorsuch wrote the opinion for McGirt v. Oklahoma, so they were released as follows:

10:00AM - McGirt v. Oklahoma
10:10AM - Trump v. Vance
10:20AM - Trump v. Mazars USA, LLP

Cookie Monster could be eating his cookie in anticipation of the upcoming decisions, but they were almost certainly not celebratory cookies.

"
Question:How are the opinions released? Are the justices in the courtroom?
Answer: Because of the COVID-19 crisis, the opinions are currently being released only on the court's website; no one takes the bench to read a summary of the opinion (or any dissents), and there is no live audio or video of the opinion release. The court had originally posted opinions on its website at five-minute intervals, beginning at 10 a.m. EDT. On June 8, the court announced that, going forward, opinions would be posted at 10-minute intervals.

Question: How does the court decide the order in which opinions will be released on a given day?
Answer:The opinions are posted by author in order of reverse seniority. This means that if Justice Brett Kavanaugh has any opinions, his are released first, followed by Justice Neil Gorsuch, Justice Elena Kagan, and so on through the chief justice, who is always the most senior justice. However, there can be exceptions to this general reverse-seniority rule, generally when the justices are announcing decisions in two or more cases involving similar issues and it makes more sense to announce one first, even if it means disrupting the normal order for announcements."

Thanks, I was having trouble finding the exact time of that specific decision.

I'm conflicted.

One one hand, the Cookie Monster dropped shade on Trump, which amuses me.

On the other hand the Cookie Monster roasted the President. He doesn't have a wide arc, he basically talks about cookies, like all the time.

Why is it that his voice can be heard in the shocking silence of the affirmation today that (although it will take stupidly long) the President is not above the Law?

So we have 2020 in a nutshell. A puppet character summed the victory of today in a cookie metaphor, doing a better job than the dipshiat pundits who don't want to be excoriated for assuming that the delay won't push this after the Election.

He gambled on "the President is above the law" and even his appointees said fark off. The contents of his Russian tainted tax returns don't matter. We Liberals already assume the worst and pawn Republicans are deaf to criticism.

But the precedent stands, no one is above the law, mo matter how many rounds of golf they have on the books this week. They sent a "fark you."

To Trump, the god-king of the Republican Party.

farking 2020.
