Hoist by his own petard

I’m all over the Mad Twitter King, but from concern for the nation. That doesn’t mean that every enemy of his is our friend, though.

There’s a whole lot not to like about the precedent of courts overruling the President on an immigration policy.

I’m sure there’s more to come, including a Pat Buchanan temper tantrum worthy of DT, but the Mad Twitter King’s complete lack of verbal and Twitter self-control will continue to provide a petard whereby to hoist him.


I am now persuaded that the states were the wrong plaintiffs, lacked standing, and that this hasty case reached the wrong conclusion, so far, because of the haste, because the government took a pretty extreme position (virtually that there could never be judicial review of immigration policy) and Trump’s personal offensiveness about banning Muslims and “so-called judge” Tweets.

As The Mad Twitter King might put it, “Everybody messed up this case. President, Platintiffs, Lawyers, Courts! Losers! Sad!”
