Judge Napolitano: Trump is right – ‘Judges sounded political’

It’s always hard to accept, but more and more today liberal judges openly allow their left wing ideology, and not the law, to guide them in decisions that affect millions of lives.  In the past they at least had the decency to try to hide it.

How can you call yourself a judge when you disregard the law and go with mamby pamby politically correct feelings?

I think what needs to be done is millions of Trump supporters should find out these judge’s phone numbers and call to let them know how wrong they are when they make decisions based on ideology. Liberals went to Mike Pence’s house and protested outside. Perhaps Trump supporters should protest outside the homes of ideologically driven judges and let them know they don’t like it when they rule that way.

A San Francisco-based federal appeals court heard arguments Tuesday night as the Justice Department attempted to overturn a district court judge’s order halting President Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration.

Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano joined “America’s Newsroom” Wednesday to give his take on the hearing.

“My impression is that the president has a very legitimate complaint that the judges sounded political,” Napolitano said.

He said the judges from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals — Judge Michelle Friedland, Judge William Canby Jr. and Judge Richard Clifton — asked irrelevant questions that focused on the “wisdom” of Trump’s executive order, which is not their job to decide.

“My late friend, the great Justice [Antonin] Scalia, used to have as a joke a sign on his desk with three words on it: ‘Stupid but Constitutional.’ Basically saying I don’t care what the government did. I only care if it’s constitutional,” Napolitano said.

Speaking Wednesday morning, Trump said even a “bad high school student” would understand that he has the authority to restrict travel from certain nations in the interest of national security.

“I listened to a bunch of stuff last night on television that was disgraceful,” Trump said of the hearing.

Napolitano said Trump’s complaints are “perfectly valid” since the White House is arguing that this is a national security issue.

A ruling, which could be appealed to the Supreme Court, is expected sometime later in the week.
