Whether connected or not, the same judge ruled on Friday to unseal documents Trump’s lawyers had wanted to keep concealed from the public.

A federal judge blasted by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump Friday has taken note of the fact that Trump isn’t happy with the way the judge is handling lawsuits over alleged fraud by the Trump University real estate seminar program.

Just hours after Trump used a campaign speech at a San Diego convention center to unleash a remarkable verbal fusillade against U.S. District Court Judge Gonzalo Curiel, the judge — who also happens to be based in the same southern California city — acknowledged a much more measured fashion of the criticism Trump has aimed at the court.

“Defendant became the front-runner for the Republican nomination in the 2016 presidential race, and has placed the integrity of these court proceedings at issue,” Curiel said in an order unsealing a series of internal Trump University documents that Trump’s lawyers asked be kept from the public.

This is an extraordinary election year. The Democrats will nominate an elderly and very unwell woman who has been monumentally incompetent at everything she has turned her hand to and is incapable of recognizing the truth should it leap out of the tall grass and bite her fat, dimpled ass.

The Republicans have rather managed to do much the same.

Where the Democrat candidate stands in jeopardy of being indicted for compromising national security, the GOP candidate will give testimony, under oath, in fraud trial where he is the star.

What did our poor nation do to deserve this?
