To remain neutral and rise above the fray of politics and public opinion is a crucial standard for any judge, but especially for those representing the highest court in the United States. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg demonstrated her lack of self discipline by publicly making “disparaging remarks” regarding Donald Trump.
In three separate situations, Ginsburg spoke out against the GOP presidential nominee showing her deep seated dislike for Donald Trump.
The backlash she has received as a result of her comments, from both parties, seems to have forced an apology, but once her opinion is out, there is no way to truly reel it back in. There can no longer be a trust that she could be objective should Trump become president.
The Code of Conduct for United States Judges is very straight forward stating a “judge should not . . . publicly endorse or oppose a candidate for public office.”
Not only should Ginsburg have apologized, but she should seriously consider hanging up her robe as well.
Read her comments and apology on the following page.
I kinda thought she should have stepped down when she passed out during Obama’s speech and said she had some alcohol to drink. I’d be the first to admit that Obama’s speeches bore me to sleep to. I mean when you’ve heard his lies so many times and he just doesn’t impress me but for some one who says how much they love him you’d think they would stay awake lol
She needs to come off bench, serious flaw in her ability to be impartial as a Supreme Court Judge.
poor judgement from a judge,who would of thought?
She’s always been stupid. Thanks, useless republicans, for letting her on scotus.
This senile old geezer made horrible rulings on Obamacare, and gay marriage and NOW she admits to “severely flawed judgement?”
She has violated our trust….time to go.
Retire or Resign….. She is a disgrace to Justice in the US……. Clearly a biased SCJ
Yeah judge you blew it. Hang it up and retire.
