Donald Trump reacted to a Hawaii court's smackdown on his “watered-down” (his words) travel ban with a full-on fascist rant in Tennessee, where he rallied the crowds into screaming “lock her up” about Hillary Clinton, then attacked the U.S. judicial system.
The Hawaii court's ruling is here.
In a rambling speech, President Trump called revised travel ban `unprecedented judicial overreach,' and more or less vowed to destroy the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
After vowing to save the families of those present from a teeming Muslim menace that is about to invade America, he promised to take away our health care.
“We are gonna repeal and replace horrible and disastrous Obamacare.”
That's not going well today, either. Here's how the ACLU describes his racist Muslim ban's very bad day in court today:
A federal court in Hawaii has temporarily blocked President Trump’s new Muslim ban executive order before it was set to take effect one minute after midnight. In another challenge, the American Civil Liberties Union and partner organizations were in U.S District Court in Maryland today also asking the ban be halted.
Omar Jadwat, director of the ACLU’s Immigrants’ Rights Project, had this reaction to the ruling:
“The Constitution has once again put the brakes on President Trump’s disgraceful and discriminatory ban. We are pleased but not surprised by this latest development and will continue working to ensure the Muslim ban never takes effect.”
