Both Obama and Trump have made exclamations regarding initiatives important to them. However, one’s words were of no account and the other, the exact opposite.
Trump’s order is a travel ban. No it’s not. Trump’s order is a Muslim ban. No it’s not. Yes it. It definitely is a travel ban. Trump said so.
This sounds exactly like what Obama said about his signature healthcare bill some eight years ago. It’s a penalty. No it’s not. It’s a tax. No it’s not. It’s definitely not a tax. Obama said so.
The Court didn’t take Obama’s words into account back then, when the supreme Court ruled it was not a penalty, as Obama insisted, but a tax.
