83 Year Old Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Crosses the Line … Calls Trump a “Faker” (Update: Trump Responds, “Her Mind is Shot, Resign!)
JUST IMAGINE WHAT THE MSM WOULD BE SAYING IF JUSTICE CLARENCE THOMAS MADE SUCH A COMMENT ABOUT HILLARY CLINTON?
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg crossed the line when she made insulting and partisan political comments regarding Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee for president. Justice Ginsburg called Trump “a faker” who must release his tax returns and criticized the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, for having no consistency and for saying whatever comes into his head at any moment. She went on to say that Trump had an ego and could not imagine the possibility that Trump could be president. In the same CNN interview, Ginsburg suggested she believes the next president will be presumptive Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton. Of course there was no mention from Justice Ginsburg that Hillary was a liar and an unindicted fraud who put the United States national security at risk with the use of her private email server while serving as Secretary of State under Barack Obama. Of course not. But these bizarre comments, that certainly crossed the line, also seem to create the appearance of impropriety that Ginsburg could ever act in an non-bias manner if trump was elected President.
“How has he gotten away with not turning over his tax returns?” Ginsburg said late Monday, according to CNN. “The press seems to be very gentle with him on that
“Every other presidential candidate has turned over tax returns,” she said.
Ginsburg also criticized Trump, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, for having no consistency and for saying whatever comes into his head at any moment.
“He really has an ego,” she said.
“I think he has gotten so much free publicity. At first I thought it was funny. To think that there’s a possibility that he could be president.”
Really, who has an ego and who has no consistency and for saying whatever comes into his head at any moment? One might just say that about you RBG. How on earth could this justice ever judge a case fairly?
Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) says Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg crossed a line attacking Donald Trump.
“It was totally inexcusable and unprofessional for Justice Ginsburg to insult a presidential candidate,” he said Tuesday on the House floor, according to The Washington Examiner. “It hurt the credibility of the Supreme Court and it showed bad judgment.
“It will be difficult for the American people to believe Justice Ginsburg can be impartial in any rulings that involve political issues,” added Smith, who has endorsed Trump. “[It will] only contribute to the public’s feeling that justice system may be rigged.”
In response to Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s ‘Faker’ comments, Donald Trump called for Ruth Bader Ginsburg to resign. Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee tweeted Justice Ginsburg’s “mind is shot” and should “resign.”
My personal opinion is that this may just backfire on the LEFT and be just what Donald Trump needed just ahead of the GOP National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio. These are the kinds of things that the GOP needs to be slapped upside the head with, especially the establishment and Never-Trumpers. We all know the political system is rigged, now we are witness the the SCOTUS being rigged too. Justices are never supposed to dabble in the political rhealm for the appearance of bias when ruling on cases. So much for that now. 83 year old RBG embarrassed herself and as Slate reported, may have risked her legacy to insult Donald Trump.
These comments will most certainly be spoken at the RNC and all will be reminded that elections have consequences. Numerous SCOTUS positions will most likely be nominated by the next president, RGB being one of them.
