In defense of his illegal Muslim ban
The Tangerine Shitgibbon is screeching and flinging poo everywhere to assign blame to someone else for his dismal failure in ruling by executive order. He would have us forget he is the executive who signed the orders.
President Trump rebelled on Monday against his own advisers who “watered down” his original executive order barring visitors from select Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States and who insisted on calling it something other than a travel ban.For a man who does as little work as he does, it is hard to blame others for what he was supposed to read before he signed. True, his comprehension is only slightly above an actual gibbon, but he can hire all the qualified people he wants to undertand for him and explain it in simple words. But the simple fact is Tangerine has never accepted responsibility for any of his failures and is far too old to start now.
Returning to one of the issues that animated the early days of his presidency and generated a court battle that has now gone to the Supreme Court, Mr. Trump argued that it was a mistake to revise the first order he signed and suggested that his administration should return to a “much tougher version.”
In a series of Twitter posts just two days after a terrorist attack killed at least seven people in London, Mr. Trump seemed to reject everything his own administration has done to win court approval for restrictions on entry from countries that he designated, both in terms of vocabulary and in terms of its provisions. He also renewed his attack on London’s mayor.
“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!” he wrote.
Mr. Trump seemed to be reacting to a segment on “Morning Joe” on MSNBC on Monday that, just a few minutes before the president’s tweets, highlighted the administration’s past statements on whether the order was a travel ban. The issue was renewed on Saturday night when Mr. Trump responded to the London attack by arguing again for the order, which he called a travel ban. “We need the courts to give us back our rights,” he wrote that night.
On Monday, Mr. Trump expressed frustration that his administration rewrote his original order, which was thrown out by the courts, in an effort to pass judicial muster. The second version was also rejected, and the administration last week appealed to the Supreme Court.
“The Justice Dept. should have stayed with the original Travel Ban, not the watered down, politically correct version they submitted to S.C.,” he wrote.
He added: “The Justice Dept. should ask for an expedited hearing of the watered down Travel Ban before the Supreme Court — & seek much tougher version!”
