Former Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was a fan of President Trump, a new book about the former Judge says.

Scalia also liked Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.

According to Gateway Pundit:

“Prior to his untimely death, Justice Antonin Scalia revealed to Bryan Garner, author of the book “Nino and Me,” that he “spoke favorably” of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.

Wall Street Journal reports:

“Justice Scalia thought it was most refreshing to have a candidate who was pretty much unfiltered and utterly frank,” said the late jurist’s literary collaborator, Bryan Garner, a legal dictionary editor who spent two weeks in 2016 traveling with Justice Scalia through several Asian countries.

The justice thought well of Scott Walker, the Wisconsin governor whose campaign for the Republican nomination stalled, said Mr. Garner, whose memoir of a decadelong friendship, “Nino and Me,” comes out Tuesday. “But he was fascinated by the fact that Trump was so outspoken in an unfiltered way, and therefore we were seeing something a little more genuine than a candidate whose every utterance is airbrushed,” Mr. Garner said in an interview.”
