The appeals court has issued its unanimous ruling on the impostor President’s Muslim ban–the ruling basically rejected Trump/Bannon’s arguments for a stay of a judge’s order lifting the ban:
The court said: “[We] hold that the Government has not shown a likelihood of success on the merits of its appeal, nor has it shown that failure to enter a stay would cause irreparable injury, and we therefore deny its emergency motion for a stay.” [from NPR.org]
Trump, of course, got busy with his thumbs (and not his head), as usual:
SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!
The judges were unmoved by his arrogance.
My favorite part was the appeals court’s response to Trump’s contention that the actions of his gold-plated presidency could not be questioned, effectively discarding the other two branches of our government. Think again, Donald:
“In their ruling, the judges were unequivocal. ‘There is no precedent to support this claimed unreviewability, which runs contrary to the fundamental structure of our democracy.’” [from NPR.org] I like the sound of that, it has a solid ring to it: “…this claimed unreviewability…runs contrary to the fundamental structure of our democracy.”
Yes, this thing will go to the Supreme Court, but Mitch McConnell’s refusal to allow Obama to fill the seat left vacant by Antonin Scalia’s death means there’s a good chance the Supremes will add up to a draw, in which case the appeals court decision stands, and “Loser Trump” loses again. Maybe he’ll get all pissy and resign and try to rescue his daughter’s sagging shoe sales.(I wish :–)
