The problem is, it's the legal system that's now getting in his way - he and his supporters will try to clear them out of the way, by undermining them, slandering them, possibly even extending as far as intimidation. Not forgetting that if he can he'll try to influence things so that judges of his choosing are appointed to any vacant seats.

He's a good scumbag, he'll find ways to turn it to his advantage. He must have known that it would get shut down again, my guess is this was pure theatre.

That is good news after all: The system of checks and balances over there works...still.

Does he care if they are citizens? I heard somewhere he honestly doesn't. I have a friend who's mom is an immigrant and became a citizen years back, she was born here though she is half south Korean.

They want obedient workers people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork And just dumb enough to passively accept it."

Trump's morning tweets. Shoots himself in the foot - they certainly can't pass the travel ban now.

Quote:@realDonaldTrump 3h3 hours ago

In any event we are EXTREME VETTING people coming into the U.S. in order to help keep our country safe. The courts are slow and political!

The Justice Dept. should ask for an expedited hearing of the watered down Travel Ban before the Supreme Court - & seek much tougher version!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
@realDonaldTrump 3h3 hours ago

The Justice Dept. should have stayed with the original Travel Ban, not the watered down, politically correct version they submitted to S.C.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
@realDonaldTrump 3h3 hours ago

People, the lawyers and the courts can call it whatever they want, but I am calling it what we need and what it is, a TRAVEL BAN!

Facepalm
Even Republicans in Congress are pointing out that the original idea of a travel restriction (for 4 months) was to assess how to do better screening. We are already more than 4 months into Trump's PresiDuncy and he has made no effort to relook security. The earliest that the Supreme Court could schedule a look at any restriction would be October - another 4 months from now. So the original "purpose" of the Exec Order has been made moot, and would have twice the "mootiness" in October.

Every week, I think that the Prez has exhausted his supply of stupid, only to realize that he seems to have an unending delivery/resupply line.

That's the most depressing discovery of all - the quantity of stupid cannot be diminished by usage; it seems even that profligate usage increases the supply of what is an apparently infinite resource. Sad

That's because there are so many more wrong answers than right answers.

No, it increases with the amount of rage he feels. Right up to spontaneous combustion.

The man's twitter feed is depressing. Twitter should lock his accounts - both of them.
