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."
