It’s not the first time Justice Ginsberg has shown questionable judgement, but this latest episode makes her look like she’s lost her mind.
From the Liberal Death Star aka The New York Times:
Unless they have a book to sell, Supreme Court justices rarely give interviews. Even then, they diligently avoid political topics. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg takes a different approach.
These days, she is making no secret of what she thinks of a certain presidential candidate.
“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 said. “For the country, it could be four years. For the court, it could be — I don’t even want to contemplate that.”
Who does this woman think she is, Erick Erickson?
It reminded her of something her husband, Martin D. Ginsburg, a prominent tax lawyer who died in 2010, would have said.
“‘Now it’s time for us to move to New Zealand,’” Justice Ginsburg said, smiling ruefully.
Actually, it may be time to ask your doctor to up your dose, Your Honor.
She wasn’t done. Apparently wanting to leave no doubt about her bias and lack of concern for the appearance thereof, on Monday, the Washington Free Beacon reported that she doubled down on it.
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg ramped up criticism of Donald Trump Monday evening, calling the presumptive Republican nominee a “faker.”
“He has no consistency about him. He says whatever comes into his head at the moment. He really has an ego,” she said from her chambers, CNN reported. “How has he gotten away with not turning over his tax returns? The press seems to be very gentle with him on that.”
Trump’s spokeswoman Hope Hicks told CNN Tuesday that Trump would release his tax returns after the IRS completed a “routine audit” and denied to comment further.
Of course, she should recuse herself in any case or controversy involving a President Trump; however, remember that she didn’t recuse herself from the so-called “same sex marriage” case despite presiding over a “gay” wedding, so what hope do we have that she’ll behave ethically in the future?
