Why nominate a clearly unqualified person as a district court judge? Why?
Matthew Petersen's appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, in which the U.S. District Court nominee failed to answer questions from Sen.

The Trump administration has been quietly packing the Federal courts with young nominees who are aligned with their "white and right" agenda, so that even if Trump's hold on the presidency is short, his legacy will live on for decades. These men are not being chosen for their qualifications, but for their youth, their gender, their race, and their politics.
It's no coincidence that this is happening where Trump's policies are constantly being struck down. Can't get rulings that allow you free reign to rob the country blind, and plunder its resources? Pack the courts with judges who are beholden to you, and follow your racist, anti-woman agenda. Problem solved.
When/if Trump gets booted from office, the courts will be fully stocked with Federalist Society, an organization of conservatives and libertarians seeking reform of the current American legal system in accordance with a textualist or originalist interpretation of the U.S. Constitution.
