The Revolt of the Judges
They are setting Trump up for a Jacksonian moment. And he knows it, too, as his wreath-laying signals. This will not end well.
If judges aren't going to accept that Trump is actually the President and has all the powers they were more than willing to concede Obama had (way more than willing, actually), then why should Trump accept that the judges have the powers they believe they do?
".. whether the judiciary has decided to treat Trump as if he's not really president. He says that judges who seem to be taking their cues as to how to read Trump's public statements (in the most uncharitable light possible, of course) are practicing a new judicial doctrine which might be called "MSNBC deference."
The Liberals in the judiciary appear to question Trump's legitimacy by questioning his motives rather than judging based on the law. They view his as fundamentally different. If they are right, they may not understand that Trump will not accept their legitimacy if they do not accept his. trump is different; he's taken on the entire bipartisan Ruling Class and so far he's winning. The judges may be creating their own nemesis.
