Supreme Court Justice of the US Skipped President Trump’s Speech As She Has Done Every GOP President, But Attending Democrat One’s is AOK
ONE HAS TO QUESTION HOW AN INDIVIDUAL THAT IS SO POLITICALLY BIAS CAN ACTUALLY SIT ON THE HIGHEST COURT IN THE LAND … SO MUCH FOR JUSTICE BEING BLIND.
Last night Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a no show for President Donald Trump’s first Address to Congress and it was expected. The 83 year old aging justice, appointed by Bill Clinton in 1993 had no issue attending his joint speeches to Congress, nor Barack Obama’s. However, she was a no show for any of President George W. Bush’s speeches and was AWOL last night as well for President Trump’s first Address to Congress. t is one thing for a justice of the SCOTUS to not attend any of the presidential joint speeches to Congress or the State of the Union events, but for a justice to only attend for Democrat presidents and not of the GOP makes one scratch their head as to how their judicial judgements could be considered not politically bias. It is troubling for a justice of the SCOTUS to only skip the joint speeches of a particular party, no matter which party it is.
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg always hugged President Barack Obama before his speeches to Congress. She doesn’t even plan to attend President Donald Trump’s first one.
Ginsburg, who called Trump a “faker” during his campaign, intends to skip Tuesday night’s speech, leaving it to five of her colleagues to represent the court.
Chief Justice John Roberts will join Justices Anthony Kennedy, Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan in attendance, court spokeswoman Kathy Arberg confirmed. All are regulars at the annual event. Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito aren’t planning to attend, continuing their past practice.
Alito hasn’t gone to a speech since 2010, the year Obama criticized the justices’ just-issued Citizens United campaign-finance ruling. Obama accused the court of ignoring a century of precedent, a claim that prompted Alito to shake his head and mouth “not true” as Democratic lawmakers directly behind the justices rose to cheer.
Ginsburg, a 1993 appointee of Democrat Bill Clinton, also skipped Republican President George W. Bush’s speeches. She attended all eight of Obama’s.
However, the poetic justice to this partisan justice will be when President Donald J. Trump nominates her successor.
