Uh Oh. Muslim Ban Judges Asking Obvious Questions

found online by Raymond

From Frances Langum:

DOJ Lawyer Jeffrey Wall does his best, referring to a third party brief (!?) to explain that Trump has “clarified” his campaign statements.

But the judges noted that the “Muslim ban” stuff didn’t come down off of the Trump campaign website until when? May 8?! And they were not, as great legal minds would put it, “impressed.”

A second judge on the panel mentioned “Koramatsu,” the case that upheld the inhumane detention of Japanese citizens during World War II, and that is now universally condemned as a bad case.

Uh oh.

We have a comment policy (sort of)

We often encounter extreme amounts of spam targeting more controversial posts. This tends to annoy and confuse Aunt Tildy. If your comment is accidentally omitted, please help her out by resubmitting, perhaps including a note telling us what happened. If you find comments closed, we can still put yours in its proper place. Just attach to another post with an explanation.

Aunt Tildy appreciates most every comment. Truly. But she has what could be an unrealistic view of the innocence of younger readers. She may hesitate when profanity becomes extreme.

In some cases, you might follow our lead. When we ruffle her delicate sensibilities, a soft apology has usually helped.
