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!”
