Fox’s Judge Napolitano: Court Ruling Was ‘Intellectually Dishonest Piece of Work’

Fox’s Judge Andrew Napolitano had some particularly strong words for the court ruling to uphold the block on President Trump‘s travel ban.

He said they “inadequately addressed the primacy of the presidency when it comes to establishing foreign policy” and instead “stayed in the weeds on the rules.”

Napolitano said some of the president’s criticisms are “well-grounded” and made this observation a little later:

“This is an intellectually dishonest piece of work that the 9th Circuit has produced tonight, because it essentially consists of substituting the judgment of three judges for the President of the United States, when the Constitution unambiguously gives this area of jurisdiction––foreign policy––exclusively to the president.”
