President Donald Trump’s campaign lost again in court on Saturday.

Trump was urged to “stop the shenanigans” after the ruling.

“Huge loss for Trump in the big federal court challenge. Scathing opinion. Calls it meritless. This thing is way over,” former acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal explained.

University of Texas law professor Steve Vladeck described the ruling as a “total shellacking.”
