Justice Ginsburg’s Attack On Trump BOMBS…You Won’t BELIEVE What She Said Next!
By Kathy Shaidle|July 16, 2016

It is a long established principle, an unspoken rule really, that federal judges are apolitical. They don’t wallow in partisanship and they never interject themselves into political campaigns.

That is why it came as a shock to many people when Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was quoted harshly attacking Donald Trump.

CNN quotes Ginsburg saying…

“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.”

After making these hostile and undignified comments about Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and his suitability for office, Justice Ginsburg issued was forced to issue an apology on Thursday:

“On reflection, my recent remarks in response to press inquiries were ill-advised and I regret making them.

“Judges should avoid commenting on a candidate for public office. In the future I will be more circumspect.”

Bader Ginsburg’s remarks caused an uproar, but she only issued her apology after an unprecedented smack down on the New York Times’ editorial page.

It’s pretty pathetic that a woman as educated as Bader Ginsburg, who has risen as high as a judge can in the United States, still needed to be told that her glib comments were a violation of every traditional protocol. It doesn’t reflect well on the caliber of people running the country under the current system.
