How many shovels does the DOJ have?
“Hawaii is, in fact, an island in the Pacific – a beautiful one where the Attorney General’s granddaughter was born,” Justice Department spokesman Ian Prior said in a statement. “The point, however, is that there is a problem when a flawed opinion by a single judge can block the President’s lawful exercise of authority to keep the entire country safe.”
Whether or not the judicial opinion is flawed, the very basis of judicial review is that one court can, in fact, block the President's exercise of authority when it is deemed unlawful. There's a lot of special pleading and begging the question in that statement, but that's not the worst part of it.
The worst part is, it sounds like something Sean Spicer would say. It's an ignorant defense of an ignorant statement that draws more attention to what a backwoods boob our current Attorney General is.
And every good lawyer knows the first rule of holes, so this doesn't say much for the people running the Justice Department.
