Chief Justice John Roberts used every euphemism in the thesaurus this week to accuse the Trump administration of lying.
“The evidence tells a story that does not match the . . . explanation.”
“The sole stated reason — seems to have been contrived.”
There was “a significant mismatch between the decision . . . and the rationale.”
The “explanation . . . is incongruent with what the record reveals.”
Furthermore, it was a “distraction” from the truth, “based on a pretextual rationale” and lacked “a rational connection between the facts found and the choice made.”
