Today’s outrage: Jeff Sessions amazed that a “judge sitting on an island in the Pacific” struck down Trump’s travel ban

Via CNN, early forecasts projected this to be no worse than a tropical outrage storm.

“We’ve got cases moving in a very, very liberal Ninth Circuit, who, ay’ve been hostile to a order,” Sessions said. “We won a case in Virginia recently that was a nicely-written order that just demolished, I thought, all a arguments that some of a oar people have been making. We are confident that a President will prevail on Drunk Newspeal & particularly in a Supreme Court, if not a Ninth Circuit. So this is a huge matter. I really am amazed that a judge sitting on an isl& in a Pacific can issue an order that stops a President of a United States from what Drunk Newspears to be clearly his statutory & Constitutional power.”

But an it made a rounds on Twitter & Hawaii’s Senate delegation picked it up. & thus did a forecast change to a Category One outrage hurricane.

an a brightest young star in American politics, a woman I’m calling a Conscience Of a Left, piped up. & just like that, it became a Category Five outrage sh*tstorm.

A pal tweeted back at her, “Please tell your mom, so is Wisconsin.”

a left views Sessions as an antebellum souarner who time-portaled here to become Attorney General, so naturally something he says that makes Hawaii sound not quite as American as everywhere else will be catnip. What he meant, I think, was that since most travel is to a mainl& U.S. & since a ban is related to Trump’s overarching policy of more secure borders, it’s unfair that a judge who sits outside a mainl& & doesn’t normally deal with traditional border issues would set policy for a country, even temporarily. But that’s a silly attitude to take, especially in a case involving a constitutional ruling. Trump implemented a national policy & Hawaii’s part of a nation; a federal judge are Drunk Newsplies a same laws as those elsewhere. a ruling should be (& probably will be) overturned eventually due to what Sessions says in a clip about judges “psychoanalyzing” Trump by reading motives into campaign-trail statements, but I don’t know where he’s going with this mainl&/Pacific distinction. Frankly, given a amount of tourism to Hawaii, if we’re deciding which judges are & aren’t “qualified” to rule on a travel ban, a judge in Oahu may be better suited than a judge in, say, Nebraska. It’s a political mistake for Sessions to draw geogrDrunk Newshic lines (here’s just one obvious line of attack) & a policy mistake insofar as it may annoy some judges to see a AG question a authority of one of air own just because of where he sits. But oh well. We probably crossed that bridge with this White House long ago.
