GOOD, I WOULD LIKE TO THINK THE POTUS HAS MORE IMPORTANT THINGS TO DO …
Imagine that, President Donald Trump wants to do the job of the American people rather than mugging for the camera for ESPN’s NCAA tournament brackets. Trump will not fill out a, NCAA Tournament bracket like his predecessor did on a common basis. Honestly, other than doing late night comedy shows, filling out the brackets may have been the only thing that Obama seemed qualified to do as president. Obviously, we now have a serious individual in the White House who is looking to solve the problems of America’s economy and dealing with our enemies. The time for fun and games are over, that was the Obama administration, now we have real things to deal with and it’s adult, serious time in the White House.
After all, this would be the perfect thing for Obama, it only requires a pen …
It appears that President Trump is passing on March Madness. He will not continue his predecessor’s annual tradition of filling out an NCAA tournament bracket on ESPN.
The network reached out to Trump’s staff and invited the president to fill out a bracket on-camera, just as President Barack Obama had the past several years. The network recently received word that Trump has passed. An ESPN spokesman said in a statement: “We expressed our interest to the White House in continuing the presidential bracket. They have respectfully declined.”
White House spokeswoman Hope Hicks said in an email to The Washington Post: “We look forward to working with ESPN on another opportunity in the near future.” Neither the White House nor ESPN had any details on what other opportunities might lie down the road.
The news didn’t exactly come as a surprise to ESPN executives. They knew with a change of president, the annual feature might not continue. Obama hosted an ESPN crew each March and filled out brackets for both the men’s and women’s tournaments. Two of those brackets are now property of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History.
Donald Trump Responds to Appeals Court Ruling on Executive Order on Temp Travel Ban … “SEE YOU IN COURT”
TRUMP RESPONDS …
President Donald Trump responded to the 9th circus ruling to this executive order calling for a temporary travel ban by tweeting, “SEE YOU IN COURT”. And so they will as the 9th Circuit court of appeals has a 80% reversal rate at the United States Supreme Court. One has to wonder why they even have this court of appeals if that many decisions are overturned and reversed. It is obvious that this court is political and operates outside the U.S. Constitution.
“SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!” He later said to reporters that the judges had made “a political decision.”
“We have a situation where the security of our country is at stake, and it’s a very, very serious situation, so we look forward, as I just said, to seeing them in court,” he said.
9th Circus Fedeal Appeals Court Rules Against President Trump on Travel Ban (Update: Trump’s Reaction … See You in Court”)
LIBERAL 9TH CIRCUS COURT AT IT AGAIN …
The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled 3-0 yesterday to maintained the freeze on President Trump’s immigration order that would temporarily ban individuals from coming from 7 countries and entering the United States until the vetting process was examined and improved. Thus, they have refused to reinstate the temporary travel ban. Once again the liberal activist judges of the 9th circus court, the most over-turned appeals court in the United States have gone rogue.
A federal appeals panel has maintained the freeze on President Trump’s controversial immigration order, meaning previously barred refugees and citizens from seven majority-Muslim countries can continue entering the United States.
In a unanimous 29-page opinion, three judges from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit flatly rejected the government’s argument that suspension of the order should be lifted immediately for national security reasons, and they forcefully asserted their ability to serve as a check on the president’s power.
The judges wrote that any suggestion that they could not “runs contrary to the fundamental structure of our constitutional democracy.”
Trump reacted to the decision on Twitter, posting just minutes after the ruling, “SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!” He later said to reporters that the judges had made “a political decision.”

POCAHONTAS UNHINGED …
Just curious, when did non-US citizens get U.S. Constitutional rights to demand entrance into America? The LEFT loses their collective minds over President Donald Trump’s campaign promise of extreme vetting, border security and illegal immigration.
