His POTUS made good on his threat that he’d see those so-called federal judges in court: The People’s Court.
Cecily Strong’s frustrated judge asked why they were all there given that the three-judge panel from 9th Circuit unanimously upheld the temporary block against his travel ban.
“Thank you, judge, or what do you call a lady judge?” Trump wondered. “A flight attendant?”
He went on to explain that he’d signed a “tremendous travel ban that I didn’t read.” Even though people took pictures of him holding up the executive orders, some judges had been disrespectful.
“I want the ban reinstated, and also I want $725,” he said.
“Earlier, a woman asked me to award her joint custody of a snake,” the judge snapped, “and she had more of a case than you, OK?”
When he insisted on referring to the jurists as “so-called judges,” Strong reminded him, “they’re federal judges. They’re more real than me.”
She was not impressed by his character witness, Vladimir Putin, and broke it down for him: “I read the order. It seemed rushed, and I decide three cases an hour, OK?”
She wasn’t having his motion to settle out of court, either.
“Mr. President, you’re doing too much,” she explained, running out patience. “I want one day without a CNN alert that scares the hell out of me, all right? I just want to relax and watch the Grammys. And no one has ever said that.”
