Orange Gazbag’s apparently so stupid that he’s apparently incapable of reading in context, and praises criticism of his White House’s incompetence and dysfunction on the ruling against the “Muslim ban”… based on a Morning Joe sound bite.
His Twitter spew will have not only a deleterious effect on legal proceedings but as his cultural illiteracy (as “President Donald”) with the Japanese PM shows, he’s as dim as his followers who trashed PBO for “bowing too low”, etc.
Think about it this way: If the Trump White House is so incompetent that it is citing my work by accident, how on earth can we trust it to handle North Korea?
This is not how the White House is supposed to work. Whole apparatuses are supposed to be there to protect the President from sending out unvetted executive orders, tweeting attacks on federal judges that hurt the government’s chances of prevailing in court, and yes, even from tweeting articles he hasn’t read and that don’t say what he thinks they say….
It is a portrait in inconsequential and comical miniature of the incompetence and dysfunction we’ve been seeing since day one of the Trump Administration. It’s the incompetence I wrote about the day after the executive order itself emerged with virtually no vetting.

And why did not one MSM stenographer ask Lord Dampnut with Abe present why scooping up undocumented persons seemed much like EO 9066 in 1942.
