It was a matter of fuel economy as measured by passenger miles. Had Alito not accepted the trip, it would have been the moral equivalent of wasting fuel.
Thank you Justice Samuel Alito for the opening line I will use in my first novel: "He allowed me to occupy what would have otherwise been an unoccupied seat on a private flight to Alaska." https://t.co/4lhnZ4a3gV— David Halperin (@DaHalperin) June 20, 2023
This is so unfair.
Why is a Supreme Court Justice alleging a news organization "misleads its readers" and "levels false charges" based on questions for a story that has not been published yet? On its face it seems both unfair and inaccurate.— Steve Reilly (@BySteveReilly) June 21, 2023

Now, you see, that would be fair! Especially because it would only prove liberals are corrupt.
Maybe if Ketanji Brown Jackson went on a wine tour of France with George Soros conservatives would suddenly discover a need to curb the SCOTUS billionaire vacation club.— Schooley (@Rschooley) June 21, 2023

And of course it just gets better.
The billionaire hedge fund manager who paid for Alito’s trip & later had business before the Supreme Court has given nearly $20,000 to Tom Cotton’s campaign and leadership PAC, starting in 2013. His family members have also made several max donations to Cotton. pic.twitter.com/A8by9FP5fu— Roger Sollenberger (@SollenbergerRC) June 21, 2023
Supreme Court Justices routinely do what Republicans are desperate to catch a Biden family member doing.— Schooley (@Rschooley) June 21, 2023
