Stay WOKE: Trump’s morning tweets put his own travel ban at risk

In the aftermath of a series of deadly attacks in London that killed 7 and left many more injured, President Donald Trump (still feels weird to say that) took to Twitter over the weekend and this morning to offer his deepest condolences and support for the victims of the attacks and stood by our closest ally in their time of need.


Trump retweeted the far right blog Drudge Report, bashed the mayor of London, and took the opportunity to criticize the United States court system and Justice Department for striking down his racist travel ban.

Here’s the President of the United States criticizing the mayor of London after a terror attack.

Here’s the statement from London Mayor Sadiq Khan, whose city was just attacked by terrorists,

“Londoners will see an increased police presence today and over the course of the next few days. No reason to be alarmed. One of the things the police, all of us need to do is make sure we’re as safe as we possibly can be.”

Seeing as Khan was telling his constituents not to be alarmed over the increase in police presence in his city, Trump either intentionally took Khan’s words out of context or he can’t really read, it’s literally all on the table with this guy.

Regardless of your politics, let alone Trump’s or Khan’s, this is just so disgraceful. Imagine if a foreign leader took it upon themselves to criticize an American mayor of a major city in the wake of a deadly terror attack?

As every other sane country in the world backs away from America like we’re the combative, blacked-out dude at the bar, we need the U.K. as an ally more than ever, but our watered-down-fascist-in-chief can’t control himself and just act like a damn adult.

Here’s ol’ Trumpy ranting before he’s even had his breakfast:

The issue with these tweets, besides the fact that our country will most likely never recover from electing a repeated sexual assailant and bankrupted reality TV host as president, is that Trump’s tweets hurt his own legal case as it pertains to the travel ban.

Whether or not it was a “ban” or a “pause” became a major point of debate for the Trump administration when the executive order was signed back in January.

At the time, White House Press Secretary (although not for long) Sean Spicer insisted, “It’s not a Muslim ban. It’s not a travel ban. It’s a vetting system to keep America safe.”

Well, here’s Spicer’s boss saying the opposite.

Of course, the issue of whether it’s a ban or not is a big deal.

According to Constitutional Law scholar and University of Texas professor Stephen Vladeck, Trump’s tweetstorm actively hurts his case in court.

Trump being mad online isn’t just embarrassing for our slowly-collapsing nation, it also puts his staff in a tough position.

Trump’s minion of distasteful mouthpieces, Kellyanne Conway, Sean Spicer, and Sarah Huckabee Sanders, will be trotted out to the media and have to defend the indefensible, making their sociopathic boss seem like he has it all under control.

Look at Kellyanne on ‘The Today Show’ saying we spend too much time focusing on the president’s tweets.

The only statements we get from Trump are prepared speeches (like that shitshow at NATO last week) and his tweets, so how else are we supposed to know what the president thinks?

I mean, Kellyanne Conway’s OWN HUSBAND, George Conway (a partner at the prestigious New York law firm Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz) tweeted his take on the whole matter, saying that Trump’s tweets would inevitably hurt his case in court.

Georgey even added a little “sad” at the end there, taking one out of Trump’s playbook.

I suppose it is “sad” that our dumbass president is undermining his own unconstitutional legislation because he can’t control himself from tweeting at 6 in the morning.

All this dude does is tweet, golf, and say/do various bigoted, and/or stupid shit. This once proud nation really elected some random grandpa from Palm Beach as president.

No surprise, but grandpa doesn’t know how to act like an actual president. Donny, buddy, you’re no longer on the campaign trail, your job is not to fire up the masses of vacuous, racist, tax-cut-humping automatons as possible. Now you have to actually, like, do stuff.

The president’s impulse control is preventing him from enacting his agenda, which, I suppose is better than him actually being able to do the evil stuff he wants to.

Four months into the Trump presidency and the whole thing seems completely untenable, yet here we are. At this point, we just gotta hope Elon was right and none of it matters.
