Tuesday's HOT MIC
An Obama-appointed judge just blocked President Trump's latest travel ban.
Hawaii argued in court documents that the updated ban is a continuation of Trump's "promise to exclude Muslims from the United States" despite the addition of two non-majority Muslim countries.
Other courts are weighing challenges to the latest travel restrictions.
In Maryland, the American Civil Liberties Union and other groups are seeking to block the visa and entry restrictions in the president's latest proclamation.
Washington state, Massachusetts, California, Oregon, New York and Maryland have challenged the policy before U.S. District Judge James Robart in Seattle, who struck down Trump's initial ban in January.
Lest you forgot, George Soros-funded group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) promised to prevent Trump from getting his agenda implemented by bogging him down with unfavorable media coverage and massive amounts of litigation.
That's what we keep seeing with the travel ban. It doesn't matter that they don't have a legal leg to stand on -- the idea is to generate negative press and gum up the works.
Media Matters founder David Brock presented a 49-page memo during a donor retreat back in January outlining how the Soros-funded groups Media Matters, American Bridge, CREW and Shareblue planned to undermine President Trump's agenda and help the Democrats win control of Congress and the White House by 2020.
The Supreme Court will hopefully overturn the judge's ruling in short order as Trump's executive order is constitutional & legal.
