Judge on Trump's new SCOTUS shortlist has repeatedly mocked Trump on Twitter

Andrew Prokop is a senior politics correspondent at Vox, covering the White House, elections, and political scandals and investigations. He’s worked at Vox since the site’s launch in 2014, and before that, he worked as a research assistant at the New Yorker’s Washington, DC, bureau.

On Wednesday, Donald Trump released a list of 11 people he'd consider nominating to the Supreme Court.

And in either a display of supreme open-mindedness or (much more likely) terribly bad vetting, one person on that list — Justice Don Willett of the Texas Supreme Court — has repeatedly taken to his Twitter account to mock Trump over the past year.

Willett poked fun at Trump's campaign slogan, at Trump University, at the billionaire's attempts at evangelical outreach, at his ideological commitment to conservatism, and even at his spelling. Amusingly enough, Willett even wrote that his "mind reels" when trying to think of whom "the Donald" would name to the Supreme Court. Take a look:
