Supreme Court Justice Ruth Ginsburg Under Fire For Comments Apologizes To Donald Trump

Ruth Ginsburg: what did I do?
Supreme Court Justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, put her foot in it criticizing presidential candidate, Donald Trump last week. I do not agree with comments Trump has made about Mexicans, Muslims, blacks and the disabled and expressed my personal view on this site that he needs to apologize. However, Ginsburg unwisely made comments about Trump in a public interview.

Ginsburg labeled Trump “a faker” and further stated, “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.” 

I have no words for this meme (LOL)
Trump became incensed and stated Ginsburg needs to resign. Trump stated, “Justice Ginsburg of the U.S. Supreme Court has embarrassed all by making very dumb political statements about me. Her mind is shot - resign!” Ginsburg ironically suffers from something Trump does as well - speaks before thinking (while Trump’s rival Hillary Clinton is too busy deleting emails to speak). Ginsburg is on the Supreme Court. 

In slamming Trump, this means she will have to recuse herself from everything concerning him in the future, as she exposed an obvious bias and outright contempt. Trump is a businessman with significant assets and with that type of portfolio comes lawsuits to protect one‘s property.

I’m all for free speech but what Ginsburg did is self-defeating. Any Trump lawsuit that reaches the Supreme Court would automatically call for a Ginsburg recusal. If Trump becomes president, Ginsburg has major problems, as she will have disqualified herself from everything he would send to the Supreme Court. Items liberals want approved by the Supreme Court, would be hampered with one less judge in the vote.

Realizing what she has done, Ginsburg has apologized. However, the problem she created for herself and her political party, the Democrats, in slamming Trump in the manner she did, still remain and will repeatedly be cause for a recusal under certain circumstances. Furthermore, voters don't form their opinions on who to vote for at the polls based on the words of judges trying to swing the election. 

Donald Trump: I will pop a cap in your butt...
One would think judges would realize, it may feel good indulging in inappropriate speech against someone you think you are in a position to put in their place, but when the soundbites or press quotes come back to haunt you, it could cost you your career and name. Furthermore, calling Trump a “faker” is grounds for a defamation lawsuit. You may and others may think he is fake, but can you prove it. 

Trump: talk to the hair, Ruth
The Supreme Court wants the public to have confidence in them, yet it has been revealed they take massive stock bribes, engage in racist speech as seen with Justice Antonin Scalia who kept insulting black, calling us “slower” than white people and now open bias as seen with Ginsburg. None of this inspires confidence. Is there any wonder the American public is actively calling the government “corrupt” and “rigged” on social networking sites.


Ginsburg Apologizes For 'Ill-Advised' Trump Comments
July 14, 201610:44 AM ET - Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg says she regrets calling Donald Trump a "faker" and making other disparaging remarks about the candidate. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has apologized for what she called "ill-advised" comments she made earlier this week criticizing presumptive Republican presidential nominee. 

"On reflection, my recent remarks in response to press inquiries were ill-advised and I regret making them," Ginsburg said in a statement Thursday morning. "Judges should avoid commenting on a candidate for public office. In the future I will be more circumspect." In an interview with the New York Times over the weekend, Ginsburg didn't hide her contempt for Trump, saying, "I can't imagine what the country would be — with Donald Trump as our president" and that her late husband would have said it was "time for us to move to New Zealand." 

She doubled down on those statements Monday to CNN, calling Trump a "faker." "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," Ginsburg continued.
