Trump Questioned A Judge's Legitimacy – The Internet Fought Back

Prominent lawmakers and internet users are slamming “so-called President” Donald Trump after he questioned a judge’s legitimacy.

President Donald Trump is absolutely furious at federal Judge James Robart for blocking his immigration order that placed a temporary ban on people from seven Muslim-majority countries.

As usual, the POTUS took to Twitter to slam the “so-called judge.”

 

He then questioned his authority to block the executive order and halt a Homeland Security travel ban that would allow anyone with “bad intentions” into the U.S.

 

However, internet users have had enough of Trump’s antics and Twitter rants. They took to social media, calling him a “so-called president.”

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) was among the first to call out the president for his attack on the judge.

 

“The president's attack on Judge James Robart, a Bush appointee who passed with 99 votes, shows a disdain for an independent judiciary that doesn't always bend to his wishes and a continued lack of respect for the Constitution, making it more important that the Supreme Court serve as an independent check on the administration,” he said in another statement.

Schumer was soon joined by other prominent names in politics who called out Trump for questioning the legitimacy of a judge and disrespecting the Constitution.

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the meantime, Vice President Mike Pence, who appeared in an interview on ABC News, conveniently dismissed Trump comments about the judge, claiming he was simply “speaking his mind.”

Host George Stephanopoulos asked Pence if it was “right for the president to say ‘so-called’ judge’? Doesn’t that undermine the separation of powers in the Constitution?”

“I don’t think it does,” said Pence. “I think the American people are very accustomed to this president speaking his mind and speaking very straight with them.”
