You don’t really think the New York Times and the Washington Post disagree with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s remarks about Trump, do you?
In an interview with The Times published Sunday, Justice Ginsburg said, “I can’t imagine what the country would be — with Donald Trump as our president,” joking that if her husband were alive, he might have said, “It’s time for us to move to New Zealand.”
She didn’t stop there.
“He is a faker,” the justice told CNN’s Joan Biskupic, who interviewed Ginsburg for a book she’s authoring on Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts.
“He has no consistency about him,” she continued. “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.”
The liberal mainstream media agrees with her completely. They love that someone came out and said what they really think. They lap it up like a cat with a can of tuna liquid. Supreme Court justices, however, are supposed to be impartial and removed from politics. Of course, we know that they are heavily invested in politics. The hoi polloi are not supposed to see this. We’re supposed to believe the myth of high minded jurisprudence.
And that is her sin. She showed what it’s really like and how it’s done.
That’s why the Washington Post editorial board wrote “”However valid her comments may have been, though, and however in keeping with her known political bent, they were still much, much better left unsaid by a member of the Supreme Court.”
Yes, “unsaid.” Acted on, yes. Believed, yes. But letting us know is not how the game is played and gets her a spanking, not her true feelings.
The New York Times editorial said: “Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg needs to drop the political punditry and the name calling.”
Why? Again, because it shows their hand. As a justice, you hide behind impartiality, but you accomplish the liberal playbook in your vote and rulings. In other words, play along, but cheat in a manner that it can’t be seen.
Trump responded, “I think it’s highly inappropriate that a United States Supreme Court judge gets involved in a political campaign, frankly,” he said. “I think it’s a disgrace to the court, and I think she should apologize to the court. I couldn’t believe it when I saw it.”
That’s a much more fair analysis than the justices would make. An apology is not enough. She needs to resign.
