Trump Just Threw His Staff Under The Bus In Twitter Rant That May Doom Travel Ban Legally

Like a petulant child who would rather stick a thumb in the eye of a parent than prevent permanent personal injury, President Trump’s willful self-destruction took a newly defiant form this morning.

After weeks of White House aides insisting that, despite Trump tweets that seemed to contradict them, the President’s Muslim travel ban was not really a travel ban at all. His staff’s efforts have been deemed legally necessary for Trump to retain any remaining hope of reviving his unconstitutional bans in the Supreme Court.

Rather than work with his team for the solution he wanted, the President undermined them and sabotaged his own goal with four early morning tweets, starting with this:

Seemingly determined to cover every self-destructive angle, Trump then added another legally damning statement, again calling the ban a “watered down” version of the first one, which the New York Times reported “made it harder for his lawyers to argue that it was a clean break from the earlier one.” On top of that, the President is attacking the Justice Department in these next tweets for an executive order that he himself signed:

In his final tweet, the President attacks the very courts who will decide the fate of his Muslim travel ban:

The sad irony of this is that while the President simultaneously fights for and sabotages his travel ban under the guise of keeping our country safe, he is doing nothing to prevent actual attacks and has inflamed anti-American sentiment abroad.

In the end we may be saved from the President’s destructive agenda, at least in part, by his own incompetence. While that may mitigate the damage however, it makes his acts no less shameful.
