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.
