And there it is – the Ninth Circuit went for a trifecta and they ruled against the third travel ban from Trump too!!
From the Hill:
A panel of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday ruled against the third iteration of President Trump’s travel ban, saying it goes against federal law.
“We conclude that the President’s issuance of the Proclamation once again exceeds the scope of his delegated authority,” the court said in its ruling.
The most recent iteration of the ban bars people from eight countries – six of which are predominantly Muslim – from coming to the U.S.
The San Francisco-based appeals court, however, said the Trump administration could continue to bar individuals from countries in the Middle East and North Africa from entering the U.S. if they do not have a “bonafide” relationship with someone in the U.S.
The court said the ruling would be put on hold pending any review by the Supreme Court.
But it doesn’t matter because the Supreme Court will rule on it, and experts pretty much agree they will rule on the side of el Trumpo. #MAGA!!!
Even still, some idiots are celebrating because they don’t understand how pointless the ruling is:

And then there’s Brit Hume:
This court just can’t take a hint. Why does this court think SCOTUS has twice allowed the Trump orders to take effect: —> 9th Circuit rules against Trump’s third attempt at travel ban https://t.co/CRFuGXocuC
