Travis County (TX) Judge Sarah Eckhardt gets to let the world know each day exactly how she feels about Donald Trump, the alleged president.
Judge Eckhardt goes into her courtroom every day wearing a very distinctive hat. Take a look:
Yep, this very cool judge wears an anti-Trump pussy hat in court and makes no apologies for doing so.
Can she do that? A local TV station investigated and found out the answer:
“KVUE’s Jason Puckett reached out to multiple county departments to verify that this behavior was acceptable and found that almost every source he spoke with agreed – Eckhardt is in the clear.”
Now before all the Trumpkins get upset and start tweeting out ignorant comments like their hero, the Cheeto Hitler, it helps to know this, which comes from the Judge Eckhardt’s official job descrption:
“The County Judge is the presiding officer and a voting member of the Travis County Commissioners Court. In the role of presiding officer, the County Judge sets the Court’s weekly voting session agenda, and is often thought of as the chief administrator of the County through the Court’s responsibility for approving annual budgets for the entire County. In large counties like Travis, the County Judge no longer exercises judicial functions as a probate or constitutional county court judge, though the office retains the power to conduct marriages and may also be called upon to conduct administrative hearings.”
In other words, Judge Eckhardt doesn’t have to be impartial. She can rock that pussy hat as much as she wants. And that is a very cool thing indeed.
Judge Eckhardt, you’re awesome!
