‘So-called president is upset’: Internet blisters Trump for attacking federal judge who ruled against him
In what pretty much anyone could have seen coming, Twitter users slapped back at Donald Trump on Saturday by calling him a “so-called president” after he attacked United States District Court jurist James Robart as a “so-called judge” due to his Friday night ruling.
Trump launched a bitter tirade at Robart Saturday morning, less than twelve hours after the judge temporarily slapped down his travel ban.
Writing, “The opinion of this so-called judge, which essentially takes law-enforcement away from our country, is ridiculous and will be overturned!” Trump opened up a can of worms among many Twitter users who see him as a illegitimate president due to Russian interference in the election and losing in the popular vote by 3 million.
Trump, who is highly sensitive to any suggestion that he is not the rightful president, came under withering attack on Twitter under “So-Called President.”
A sampling, and Trump’s tweet that set off the firestorm, below:
The opinion of this so-called judge, which essentially takes law-enforcement away from our country, is ridiculous and will be overturned!

This "so-called" judge was nominated by a "so-called" President & was confirmed by the "so-called" Senate. Read the "so-called" Constitution https://t.co/xQotyL1kHM

No "so-called." Judge Robart is a GWB appointee who was confirmed 99-0. We are watching closely your contempt for our Judicial Branch. https://t.co/k1La1mPlHj

The Judge went through due process, did not depend on Russia hacking, FBI nor denigrate the competition, unlike the So-called president.

My So-Called Judge has been practicing law since 1973 & written several dissertations. My so-called President can't even formulate a tweet.

If @GOP loves America you'd invoke the 25th amend before the so-called President's found under the Resolute desk mumbling tweets to himself.

Trump: That so-called WA judge? Fire him.
Staff: Sir, judges can't be fired.
Trump: Says who?
Staff: The Constitution.
Trump: Never read it.
