President Donald Trump’s former political foes, Democrat Hillary Clinton and self-declared socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders, who also ran on the Democratic Party ticket seeking the high White House office months ago, have jumped to the forefront of political discourse to make unhelpful jabs about the 9th Circuit’s recent ruling on the immigration executive order.
It’s like the hungry wolves saw a crack in the door and pounced.
Sanders (I-Vt.), gave a shout-out to the appeals court’s slapdown of Trump’s order which puts a 90 day halt on visitors from seven countries with known terror ties from coming to America.
He said, the Hill reported:
“Hopefully, the unanimous court ruling against President Trump’s immigration ban will restore some of the damage he has done to our country’s reputation around the world,” Sanders said in a statement minutes after the ruling came down.
“It also may teach President Trump a lesson in American history and how our democracy is supposed to work here at home.”
Clinton took to Twitter to mock, with this brief message about the court outcomes: “3-0.”

Trump adviser, Kellyanne Conway, handled that one.
She tweeted this: “PA, WI, MI,” an obvious reference to Clinton’s loss of the three states she needed to win the White House.
Trump, meanwhile, put out his own Twitter response to the court’s decision.
SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!

One read: ‘SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!”
And another: “LAWFARE: ‘Remarkably, in the entire opinion, the panel did not bother even to cite this (the) statute.’ A disgraceful decision!”
