How fucking plain do they have to be? [View all]

I was just watching Alicia Melendez and Mary McCord talking on MSNBC about today's arguments before the Supreme Court about whether the law about interfering with government processes under which January 6 rioters were prosecuted applies to them. Recordings of a few of the exchanges between the justices and lawyers on both sides were played. While listening to these exchanges, and the arguments put forth by the orange con man's lawyers, I kept thinking, HOW FUCKING PLAIN does the language have to be in these laws? These assholes are trying to parse every little phrase, every word, every crossed t and dotted i, to try to make it sound like these laws mean something other than what they clearly mean. It's DISGUSTING, I tell you. Just getting this off my chest by posting it here ...
