A Write Good!: The News report — “All the story, plus lies!”

(WriteGood!WireServices) In the wake of liberal-leaning Supreme Court rulings that support same-sex marriage and Obamacare, Republican party leaders are decrying the scarcity of negative emojis that adequately express their anger.

“‘OMG’ just isn’t cutting it,” complained House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH). “Frankly,the sadface, and even the grumpyface icons barely express the depths of my disappointment. Much of the fault must be placed on my conservative-bashing liberal iPhone.”

Following the Court’s rulings, a host of GOP presidential hopefuls took to social media in an effort to rally the three or four conservative millennials who follow them.

One of the strongest repudiations of the same-sex marriage ruling came from former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee who warned on his website that the country “must resist and reject judicial tyranny, not retreat.”

“I said as much to my Twitter follower using hashtag ‘must-resist-and-reject-judicial-tyranny,-not-retreat’, followed by a soccer ball and a kitty. Oh yeah, he got it!”

Other Republican candidates were not so successful.

“How can a frowning face with a single tear express the complete failure of Bush-appointed Supreme Court Justice Roberts?” questioned Donald Trump. “Most people use that icon to tell friends they didn’t like their lunch taco.

“Not that there’s anything wrong with tacos. I love the Mexican people,” Trump added.

A Write Good!: The News report
Write Good!: The News — “All the story, plus lies!

A historic Supreme Court session that saw major rulings affecting the Voting Rights Act and the Defense of Marriage Act ended with the justices sprinting for the parking lot to split for summer break.

“I am SO out of here!” yelled a jubilant Chief Justice John Roberts as he balled up his judicial robes and tossed them in the back seat of his Ford Fiesta. “LAUDERDALE! WooooEEEE!,” he added.

“Shotgun!” shouted Justice Antonin Scalia, piling into the passenger side.

Justices of the Roberts Court loosen up and “get down” with their peers during summer break in Fort Lauderdale.

Standing in the lobby of the Supreme Court Building, Justice Anthony Kennedy declined to comment on the dramatic rulings by the conservative-leaning high court that marked a dramatic defeat for racial minorities and a powerful victory for gay rights.

However, Kennedy, jingling his car keys and repeatedly checking his watch, was overheard to remark “̒Zat it? We done?” to nearby Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagan. Ginsburg, busily texting, did not respond. However, a laughing Kagan, making air quotes, replied, “What evs!”

“The conclusion of the Court’s term each summer presents a unique study of contradictions,” explained Court historian Manuel Procedendo of the Constitutional Accountability Center. “It’s a time for the justices to analyze new petitions, consider applications and motions, and prepare for upcoming cases. But usually they just get shit-face wasted.

“Man, are they gonna raise Hell,” Procedendo added thoughtfully as the remaining justices waved wildly from the windows of High Court One, the Supreme Court’s constitutionally mandated recreational vehicle festooned with a banner reading “U.S. vs Team Bacardi! Drink Responsibly.”

“This could be the Rehnquist Court all over again!”
