Roberts to the Trump administration in this census opinion: Please get better at lying so that we can rule in your favor without delegitimizing the court by accepting obvious falsehoods.
I think Roberts was in physical pain writing this decision. He wants to rule in Trump's favor. Ross was so ostentatiously, blatantly, incontrovertibly dishonest that Roberts could not bring himself to do it.
Meanwhile there are 4 votes on the Supreme Court, including Gorsuch and Kavanaugh, in support of allowing the U.S. government to blatantly lie in pursuit of what we now know was a conscious bid to augment white political power.
Yes I know that equal protection questions weren't before the court. But as Roberts noted in his own opinion quoting Stanchich, the court is "not required to exhibit a naiveté from which ordinary citizens are free.”
