Supreme Court justices are people. Sometimes they express political opinions and there is nothing wrong with that. They should be able to do so as Americans. However, they can go too far and that is exactly what Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg did with her comments about GOP Presidential nominee Donald Trump.
Here is what she had to say. From CNN:
“He is a faker,” she said of the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, going point by point, as if presenting a legal brief. “He has no consistency about him. He says whatever comes into his head at the moment. He really has an ego. … How has he gotten away with not turning over his tax returns? The press seems to be very gentle with him on that.”
That is just inappropriate for a Supreme Court justice to say.
Here is some video showing what she said and also Donald Trump’s STRONG response:
POW. Here is Donald Trump’s tweet if you want to RT it yourself:
Justice Ginsburg of the U.S. Supreme Court has embarrassed all by making very dumb political statements about me. Her mind is shot – resign!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 13, 2016
Will Justice Ginsburg resign? It’s doubtful. Very doubtful.
Still, Donald Trump made his point and Justice Ginsburg would do well to remember what kind of position of authority and importance she has. Her words carry weight and she should be willing to keep those words to herself at times.
Do you agree? If so, go ahead and share this with others so people can see exactly what Ginsburg said about the presumptive GOP nominee!
