What if aliens land in Washington, and declare Trump to be their most admired human? One would suppose that the well-known maxim "locuta est ad aliena" would apply, but then, as Lubet has noted, the Senate has certain (not plenary) non-justiciable prerogatives. If the Supreme Court would not hear the case to decide the proper application of the separation of powers (terrestrial v. extra terrestrial), then who would decide? My vote: Rachel Maddow.
