In the wake of his in-everything-but-the-official-title Muslim Ban and the the detainments and protests it immediately set off, President Donald Trump is blaming everybody but himself for the outrage to his outrage.

Ever the statesman, instead of addressing the fact that no terrorists have come from the banned countries, the stays granted by the judiciary and the sheer harmfulness of its rollout, Trump dedicated his morning Twitter burst to deflect responsibility for the chaos.

Trump's strategy.

According to Trump, the scene at airports had nothing to do with people, including children and the elderly, being held for hours, but had everything to do with Delta Airlines and Senator Chuck Schumer.

Firstly, Secretary Kelly said nothing of the sort.

Secondly, blaming protesters protesting chaos for chaos instead of the chaos itself is just silly.

Thirdly, REAL MEN CRY when humans are suffering, Mr. President.

And lastly, HOW DARE YOU PUT US IN THE POSITION OF DEFENDING DELTA AIRLINES.

Trump's blaming Delta's IT outage nonsense (their computers didn't have a blip until late Sunday afternoon), and sucks because it makes us sympathize with the airline that has been consistently annoying with brutal delays, bad snacks, and draconian overhead bin laws.

Comedian John Mulaney slams Delta best.

But yes, the horrors of traveling on Delta are incomparable to those of being ripped from families and unlawfully detained.
