So the man-baby’s Muslim travel ban 2.0 has once again been blocked by a federal judge, this time in Hawaii. US District Court Judge Derrick Watson pointed out that the intent of the ban is clear from the statements Trump made as a candidate, i.e. to stop all Muslims from coming into the country “until our country’s representatives can figure out what the hell is going on.”
Trump is furious and lashed out, as is his wont. In a speech in Nashville yesterday, he (again) vowed he’ll go to the Supreme Court, insisted the courts are political, claimed Our Country is unsafe, yadda yadda yadda.
For good measure, he whipped up the crowd for some lusty and prolonged chants of that old favorite, “Lock Her Up”.
Here’s the thing: Do we really want a president who is routinely furious when something doesn’t go the way he’d like? Do we want a president who is always lashing out? Don’t we want a president who is calm at all times and keeps his angrier thoughts to himself?
In short, Mr. President, it would be a blessed relief to all of us, and perhaps do you some good as well, if, for at least one day, you would just calm down and shut up.
