President Trump scolds Justices Sotomayor and Gingsburg

Make sure to let us know what you think... we now have comments turned ON below the article!

During a press conference, while visiting the populous nation of India, President Trump addressed US relations with that country.

He also touched on US domestic politics, scolding Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor for a barbed dissent and her colleague Ruth Bader Ginsburg for making political remarks. The president suggested that the right thing would be for Sotomayor and Ginsburg to recuse themselves from any cases that involve him, meaning his policies.

The president said that Supreme Court Justices should hold themselves to a higher standard,

Justice Ginsberg made political remarks during the president’s campaign, expressing doubt about the future of the country if Trump became president and saying that Trump he is a “faker,” which would suggest that Ginsburg is biased against President Trump.

This same person later weighed in on the president’s impeachment trial in the Senate saying that if a senator expressed bias they should recuse themselves from the trial. Perhaps Ginsburg and Sotomayor should take Ginsburg’s advice and recuse themselves from cases that involve the president’s policies.

Justice Sotomayor wrote a dissent complaining about the number of emergency appeals from the Trump administration, implying that the 5 “conservative” justices are partisans rubber-stamping the DOJ’s requests.

Senator Ted Cruz, in a Senate hearing, addressed the issue pointing out that a small number of courts issued 55 nationwide universal injunctions, an unprecedented number, a third of them from California courts. Cruz said he believes these activist judges are acting as part of the resistance, “putting themselves in the way of Trump policies they disagree with,” and that necessitates bringing the emergency appeals to the Supreme Court. Sotomayor was alone in her dissent and her criticism of her colleagues.

Justice Sotomayor has it backward. These activist appellate judges are the problem, not President Trump. If they weren’t trying to block the president’s policies, there would be no need for these emergency appeals to the Supreme Court.
