Democrats in Congress to Trump: Read the Constitution, You “So-Called President”


constitution

Donald Trump crossed yet another line, publicly attacking a federal judge who briefly stuck down his unconstitutional Muslim ban in its entirety. Trump lashed out at the judge with personal insults, referring to him as a “so-called judge” in the process. But that encouraged numerous Democrats in Congress to fire back at Trump, telling him to read the Constitution and slamming him for being a “so-called president.”

BEGINNING

The trouble began when Donald Trump took to twitter to attack U.S. District Judge James Robart early Saturday morning, tweeting that “The opinion of this so-called judge, which essentially takes law-enforcement away from our country, is ridiculous and will be overturned!”

SO-CALLED PRESIDENT

That prompted United States Congressman Adam Schiff, who represents the Los Angeles area, to quickly fire back with following: “This “so-called” judge was nominated by a “so-called” President & was confirmed by the “so-called” Senate. Read the “so-called” Constitution.” This helped lead to the phrase “so called president” to become a trending topic on Twitter, to which Trump was reduced to angrily tweeting “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”

TED LIEU

And then Congressman Ted Lieu, who represents the district neighboring Schiff’s district, piled on with “Uh-oh, even @realDonaldTrump can’t figure out how to defend his crazy actions. He’s now just shouting campaign slogans” before adding the hashtag  ‘#SoCalledPresident’. Ted Lieu has also previously accentuated that the Trump administration just “Makes shit up.”

POMPOUS QUESTION

At that point an infuriated Trump was further reduced to tweeting a pompous question: “What is our country coming to when a judge can halt a Homeland Security travel ban and anyone, even with bad intentions, can come into U.S.?” But that question was quickly answered by a number of Twitter users, who responded that our country is coming together to get rid of him, and that our country is coming to a constitutional crisis.
