President Trump may have called a federal court's decision to block the latest version of his travel ban "the sad news," but folks on Twitter are finding plenty of reason to laugh. Thanks to a Hawaiian judge's decision that immediately created a nationwide halt to the ban (which would have otherwise gone into effect Thursday), there has been a slew of revised travel ban jokes and memes to enjoy on Twitter. Though the ensuing legal battle may be contentious, at least this is something to celebrate — and laugh at Trump's expense about — in the meantime.
The new consensus on Twitter is that Hawaii is the best state — it has given America surf, sun, President Obama (something President Trump is now likely to not forget), and now, the latest ruling on the revised travel ban. If there was ever a time to recognize all the Aloha State has to offer, it's right about now.
For Trump's part, he has vowed to fight the decision in court, telling a crowd at a Tennessee rally on Wednesday, "We're going to take our case as far as it needs to go, including all the way up to the Supreme Court." He went on to say that he thought the ruling showed signs of gross judicial overreach, and that the second executive order was a "watered down" version of the first one.
Though Trump's odds are not looking good, you may have to wait to see how this pans out in court. But until that (potentially unlikely) day, you at least have the good folks on Twitter to keep you entertained and provoke Trump's ire:
