…nd lashes out at staff when there is zero doubt that he is the weak link in his own administration. We’ve never had this kind of a minute by minute view into the workings of a White House. It’s there because Trump is terrible leader and for the reasons above, no one can stop talking about it.
That is to say, the administration is testing the extent to which the DHS (and other executive agencies) can act and ignore orders from the other branches of government. This is as serious as it can possibly get: all of the arguments about whether order X or Y is unconstitutional mean nothing if elements of the government are executing them and the courts are being ignored.
