On February 9 President Trump tweeted: “SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!”
On February 16 the Department of Justice filed a brief in the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals taking 60+ ages to say “the most appropriate course would be for the Court to hold its consideration of the case until the President issues the new Order and then vacate the panel’s preliminary decision.”
Meanwhile, at his press conference (or was that a therapy session?) the same day, the president claimed the Administration was still appealing the order – “We’ll be going along the one path and hopefully winning that…”
While also noting “At the same time, we will be issuing a new and very comprehensive order to protect our people.”
An addled mind is the devil’s playground.
