Trump Has Thanksgiving Day Meltdown On Twitter, Raging Against The Entire ‘Mean And Nasty World’

President Donald Trump used his first tweet on Thanksgiving to attack U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts and the “absolute disaster” 9th circuit court while admonishing the world for being so “mean and nasty.”

“It’s a mean & nasty world out there, the Middle East in particular. This is a long and historic commitment, & one that is absolutely vital to America’s national security,” Trump tweeted while defending his administration’s decision to continue to support Saudi Arabia after the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

“In addition, many Billions of Dollars of purchases made in U.S., big Jobs & Oil!” Trump said.

Just a few minutes later, the president, who is spending his Thanksgiving break at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, with his family tweeted: “HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL!”

But the erratic “president” quickly reverted to form, hitting back at Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts after the chief justice took the extraordinary step of rebuking the president’s criticisms of the 9th Circuit judge who ruled against the president’s asylum ban, which sought to deny asylum protection to anyone who failed to make the request at a legal port of entry.

He also warned that there would be “bedlam, chaos, injury and death” if judges were allowed to make decisions affecting immigration policy.

“Justice Roberts can say what he wants, but the 9th Circuit is a complete & total disaster,” Trump wrote, shortly after his Thanksgiving tweet.

“They know nothing about it and are making our Country unsafe. Our great Law Enforcement professionals MUST BE ALLOWED TO DO THEIR JOB! If not there will be only bedlam, chaos, injury and death. We want the Constitution as written!”

While Trump railed against judges hampering his immigration policy plans, Trump faced criticism for spending Thanksgiving at his Mar-a-Lago resort while thousands of American troops are being kept away from their homes and families to carry out a deployment at the southern border ordered by Trump in anticipation of the arrival of a caravan of thousands of Central American migrants.
