The jury is still out on whether President Trump should continue tweeting, but one judge has weighed in.

Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly on Monday partially blocked enforcement of parts of the president’s memorandum banning transgender people from serving in the military, saying the plaintiffs are likely to succeed on their due process claims. Her ruling blocked provisions of the memo concerning enlistment and retention of transgender military service members.

CNN reports that Kollar-Kotelly also “blasted Trump’s initial abrupt announcement via Twitter,” saying it came “without any of the formality or deliberative processes that generally accompany the development and announcement of major policy changes that will gravely affect the lives of many Americans.”

In fact, screencaps of the president’s tweets announcing the transgender ban made it into the judge’s ruling, much to the delight of The Resistance.

It’s not quite to the point of using rhetoric from the campaign trail as the basis of a ruling, such as a judge’s stay of Trump’s so-called Muslim ban, but the tweets certainly didn’t help.
