Neal Katyal, the lead attorney for the state of Hawaii’s case against the Muslim ban, thanked Donald Trump for acting as co-counsel with his early morning Twitter meltdown calling it a “travel ban.”
“It’s kinda odd to have the defendant in Hawaii v Trump acting as our co-counsel.We don’t need the help but will take it!” Katyal wrote.

Donald Trump sabotaged his own case with his Monday morning tweets by admitting that his intent was unconstitutional. He attacked the Justice Department for “caving” with the “watered down” version of his “travel ban.” He vomited out this fusillade after MSNBC’s Morning Joe hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski trolled him masterfully.
This is the exchange from Morning Joe that set off Trump this morning:
This @Morning_Joe discussion may have set off Trump.

The ACLU also weighed in:

Let the record reflect that Trump admits yet again that Muslim Ban 2.0 is nothing but "politically correct version" of Muslim Ban 1.0 https://t.co/BKm1qylazC
