The left was giddy over the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals upholding a temporary restraining order against Trump’s travel ban.
Hillary Clinton joined in the pile-on.
But within minutes, her attempts to taunt Trump blew up in her face.
The three-judge panel issued an outrageous unanimous decision upholding the order.
Hillary Clinton quickly took to Twitter to post a triumphant tweet intended to mock Trump for being a giant loser.

Her tweet did not go unanswered.
And the responses she received threw the biggest humiliation of her life back in her face.

Others mocked her tweet by mentioning her record in presidential elections.

The left’s joyous reaction to the Ninth Circuit’s decision should be tempered by the fact they have a nearly 80% rate of decisions being overturned.
And many experts believe this decision defied legal reasoning.
Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz believes it was a weak ruling.
“On Thursday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Hardball,” Harvard Law Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz stated that the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals’ ruling against President Trump’s immigration order is “not a solid decision.” And “looks like it’s based more on policy than on constitutionality.”
Dershowitz said, “Look, this is not a solid decision. This is a decision that looks like it’s based more on policy than on constitutionality. There are many, many flaws.”
He added, “I think this court opinion will not ultimately be sustained by the Supreme Court. Take, for example, the argument that it’s an establishment of religion because it favors Christians or other religious minorities. In 1944 we passed the War Refugee Act, which specifically was designed to rescue a hundred thousand Jews, and everybody knew the purpose was to rescue jews. That didn’t establish Judaism as the state religion of the United States. I think the establishment argument will fail in the Supreme Court. I think the standing arguments may fail in the Supreme Court.”
The left – led by Hillary Clinton – is performing an end-zone dance over this ruling.
They may want to hold off.
