Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:

This article is an example of the Right trying to manufacture a victory. The courts shut down the travel ban, repeatedly, until it expired. If Trump attempts to resurrect it, we can bet they’ll shut it down again. A victory would have been a ruling that he was right and the lower courts were wrong.

On the other hand, this is an accurate summation of the Left’s tactics: “In essence, elements of the “nonpolitical” branch are trying to reverse the result of the 2016 vote by denying the duly elected president the powers of his office.” And they’re continuing to do so as Liberal judges issue nation-wide rulings that clearly stomp on Presidential prerogatives for the flimsiest of reasons. This ruling doesn’t change that but it does highlight the hypocrisy. That never hurts.
