Well, now. This makes perfect sense.
It turns out that US District Court Judge Derrick Watson, the judge that put a hold on President Trump’s Travel Ban 2.0 was appointed by President Obama in November of 2012.
Not only that, though.
The pair go waaaay back.
The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports that Judge Watson and Barry were classmates at Harvard Law School.
Interestingly, Barry made a quick, unexpected trip to Hawaii — without Michelle — just a few days ago.
Sure, Barack took in a round or two of golf, but he was also there on ‘business’.
As the Honolulu Star reported, Obama “made an unannounced return to Hawaii Monday,” just three months after his last official holiday visit as president, arriving with a small entourage that included a Secret Service detail.
Eagle-eyed Reddit users noted that Obama had dinner at the Noi Thai restaurant, which is just minutes away from the courthouse and that Obama was, “likely within 5 minutes of the judge’s house at one point on the drive over.”
PopSugar reports that Obama played golf but was “still making time to take care of business” as he met with tech leaders and that “his return to politics might be sooner than we think.”
Given that Obama appointed the judge, graduated in the same year as him and visited Honolulu and was within minutes of the judge less than 48 hours before Judge Watson made a major ruling that blocked Trump’s travel ban, it doesn’t take a wild-eyed conspiracy theorist to insinuate that the two could have met.
The speculation follows reports that Obama has created a nerve center just two miles from the White House which is serving as a war room for his bid to lead an “insurgency” against Trump in a bid to sabotage his presidency.

Watch the speculation:
Could Barry have had a hand in this?
Was this a Bill-Clinton-Meeting-Loretta-Lynch-On-The-Tarmac type of situation?
