KOMMONSENTSJANE – PRESIDENT TRUMP’S EXECUTIVE ORDER BAN SPEAKS FOR AMERICANS

 

Demonstrators at Los Angeles International Airport showed support for President Trump’s executive order banning travel to the U.S. from seven primarily Muslim nations.

President Trump’s lawyers told a federal judge Friday that he’s not a legal expert and his comments on his extreme vetting executive orders can’t be taken as gospel truth, as the administration sought to head off yet another legal black eye over his six-country travel ban.
Brad Rosenberg, a Justice Department lawyer, said neither Mr. Trump nor top policy adviser Stephen Miller should be considered authorities when it comes to evaluating what the president’s executive order is supposed to do.
“Neither of them are lawyers,” Mr. Rosenberg told Judge Tanya S. Chutkan.

But the judge seemed unswayed during two hours of oral arguments, saying the word “executive” must mean something in “executive orders,” so the words of Mr. Trump and Mr. Miller matter.
“Your argument is belied by the statements of the administration,” said Judge Chutkan.
Judge Chutkan is the latest to hear arguments on the legality of Mr. Trump’s extreme vetting policy, which seeks to put a pause on all refugee admissions, and to temporarily halt new arrivals from six majority-Muslim countries who don’t already have ties to the U.S. Those countries are Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

It’s a more narrow version of an earlier executive order that targeted seven countries, and applied to all persons, including those who’ve lived in the U.S. for years.
While two other federal courts out west have already halted the big parts of the policy, Muslim and Iranian groups have sued in Washington, D.C., asking for an even broader injunction.
They said no matter how Mr. Trump tries to rewrite his policy, it is tainted by his “malicious” profiling of Muslims and his refusal to recant.
“The president has never, ever said the orders are not a Muslim ban,” said Jonathan Freiman, a lawyer for the groups challenging the president.
Judge Chutkan seemed to be grappling with whether to weigh in at all. She asked both sides to go back and file new briefs arguing whether, given the two injunctions already in place, there’s a reason for her to intervene and impose a third one.
Still, if she does weigh in, she seemed skeptical of Mr. Trump’s defense.
She read a long chain of events beginning with Mr. Trump’s initial campaign vow to impose a “Muslim ban,” his morphing that into “extreme vetting,” his inauguration and quick issuance of his first policy, the courts’ rejection of that policy, the statements by Mr. Trump and Mr. Miller that a second version would accomplish much the same thing, and then the issuance of the second policy.
“His adviser said the president called him up and said I want to do a Muslim ban, or something to that effect. Make it legal,” the judge said.
“You are in a very unusual position,” she told Mr. Rosenberg, the Justice Department lawyer.

ANALYSIS/OPINION:
Trump Derangement Syndrome is real, folks. The latest example is the liberal reaction to first lady Melania Trump’s official portrait, which was unveiled on Monday.
Cosmopolitan Magazine declared the photo was heavily airbrushed — Cosmo, of all sources, which heavily airbrushes many of its scantily clad cover models every month.
Mrs. Trump’s face “appeared to be heavily airbrushed,” the women’s magazine lamented, adding a bit of snark: “This soft lighting is like only the classiest ‘90s mall glamour shot photo could offer!”
Wire service Agence France-Presse reported: “Melania Trump portrait stirs controversy,” which was then carried and featured on the front-page of Yahoo News on Tuesday.
“While some commenters gushed that the first lady was ‘beyond beautiful’ and ‘gorgeous,’ others mocked the image as highly airbrushed and compared the gauzy background — a window in the White House residence — to 1990s school portrait settings,” AFP reported.
Former Comedy Central “The Nightly Show” writer Sasha Stewart wrote on Twitter, “Anyone know why Melania Trump’s portrait was taken in front of the Muppet Babies window?”

The Hollywood Reporter took offense Mrs. Trump wore her wedding ring in the picture.
“Melania Trump’s official White House portrait puts her 15-carat wedding ring front and center,” its headline blared, adding: “Compared to Michelle Obama’s first official portrait first portrait, which shows the former first lady in the now-famous sleeveless Michael Kors dress in the Blue Room of the White House in 2009, Melania’s portrait has an almost surreal glow about it, not unlike a mall glamour shot. The air of perfection, however, might just be a result of her prior experience as a professional model. We’ll never know.”
The U.K.’s Daily Express also took note of her ring, saying she was “flaunting an ENORMOUS diamond ring” and “chose to flaunt her wealth, power and status in her first official portrait as First Lady.”
You know what I think? So what? The picture’s gorgeous, and her ring is beautiful. She and her husband made no secret of their wealth when Mr. Trump ran for office, so why are we shocked now?
There’s no reason. Unless you’re looking to nitpick. Unless you detest Mr. Trump and his presidency so much, nothing is off limits, including his criticism of his wife. It’s called Trump Derangement Syndrome. And unfortunately, I think it’s an incurable disease for many in the media.
