Trump Goes to War with This Supreme Court Justice
Hey, she started it.
Yep, Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsberg, broke accepted political behavior for a sitting Supreme Court justice, and criticized a nominee for President.
Except she blasted the ultimate attack dog, Donald Trump.
The presumptive Republican presidential nominee tweeted early this morning that Ginsburg’s “mind is shot” and should “resign.”
Ginsburg, 83, hasn’t shied from blasting the business mogul in recent interviews.
“He is a faker,” she said of Trump on Monday on CNN. “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.”
She told The New York Times that a Trump presidency would be unimaginable for the country and the Supreme Court.
“I can’t imagine what this place would be — I can’t imagine what the country would be with Donald Trump as our president,” she told the Times. “For the country, it could be four years. For the court, it could be — I don’t even want to contemplate that.”
Notorious RBG can’t imagine what this place or the Supreme Court will be if Trump is elected?
Perhaps she knows it doesn’t matter because she’s planning her retirement from the bench regardless of who wins the Presidency?
But Ruthie… is this really the liberal legacy you want to leave?
