Trump Horror, Day 15: Federal Judge Halts Trump's Muslim Ban

Sat, Feb 4, 2017 at 10:25:48 am

Don't you just love how the media are obediently adopting Trump's own deceptive name for his ban on Muslims entering the US? "Travel ban" sounds so much better than what it really is, a Muslim ban.

But at least today we have some good news about this unconstitutional horror: a federal judge has ordered a nationwide halt to the ban.

A temporary restraining order, that is, and you can be sure Trump's goons will challenge it quickly, because these kinds of oppressive measures are important in building the autocracy Trump wants.

The tiny-fisted fascist immediately fired up his cell phone and ranted like a standard right wing moron on Twitter, of course, mocking Federal Judge James Robart, a George W. Bush appointee, as a "so-called judge."

The opinion of this so-called judge, which essentially takes law-enforcement away from our country, is ridiculous and will be overturned!
