President Donald Trump took to his favorite social media platform early Saturday to chastise the federal judge who ordered a nationwide halt of his recent executive order on immigration and refugees.
Writing on Twitter, Trump labeled that judge — Seattle-based federal district court Judge James Robart — a "so-called judge."
"So-called" is a label Trump often gives people who oppose him or disagree with him.
But now Democrats and liberals on Twitter are hitting back at the president, turning the tide on Trump and tweeting reasons why Trump is merely a "SoCalledPresident."
So-called President with lowest approval ratings & IQ will have one of the shortest presidency in US history. #SoCalledPresident— Alexander L. King (@Alexander L. King)1486227906.0
#SoCalledPresident wants you to believe he's making 🇺🇸 great while he removes freedom, destroys the environment and prioritizes the banks.— Tommy Campbell (@Tommy Campbell)1486239426.0

This #socalledpresident is a stain on the fabric of America, shaming religions, countries, and even its own citizens. #Fraud #Sad #Trump— Rachel B. (@Rachel B.)1486214541.0
He's trying to delegitimize the Courts just like he did w/ the media. Straight out of Fascism Playbook. Our #SoCalledPresident = dictator.— Michael Kasdan (@Michael Kasdan)1486216319.0
Even a congressman, Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.), joined in by mocking Trump as the "so-called president."
Pleased that this #saturdaymorning, @DHSgov will follow the Constitution rather than our So-called President. https://t.co/aZCHPQT20R— Ted Lieu (@Ted Lieu)1486224927.0
Uh-oh, even @realDonaldTrump can't figure out how to defend his crazy actions. He's now just shouting campaign slog… https://t.co/TYqrKFn5nm— Ted Lieu (@Ted Lieu)1486237797.0
Trump has not responded to the hashtag on Twitter, although he did write on the social media platform Saturday afternoon lamenting over the effects that Robart's ruling might have on U.S. national security.
