I ❤️ RBG but I don't think our Supreme Court justices should be publicly offering their opinions about POTUS candidates.— howard wolfson (@howiewolf) July 11, 2016
In bashing Trump, some say Ruth Bader Ginsburg just crossed very important line... https://t.co/PP4ttSxgBU— DRUDGE REPORT (@DRUDGE_REPORT) July 11, 2016
Ginsburg... something her late husband said about such matters: "Now it’s time for us to move to New Zealand."
This appears to be a joke, but Ginsburg's sentiment here is crystal clear: She thinks Donald Trump would be a dangerous president. And in saying it, she goes to a place justices almost never do — and perhaps never have — for some very good reasons.
Ginsburg is known for pushing the bounds of a justice's public comments and has earned something of a cult following on the left. But some say she just went too far.
"I find it baffling actually that she says these things," said Arthur Hellman, a law professor at the University of Pittsburgh. "She must know that she shouldn’t be. However tempted she might be, she shouldn’t be doing it."
Ginsburg's comments are and will surely continue to be celebrated on the political left. For those concerned about the line between the judiciary and politics, though, they could be the subject of plenty of debate — the kind of debate that could set a precedent of its own.
A number of Dems took issue with Ginsburg comment as well https://t.co/YxX0fZlGY7— Maggie Haberman (@maggieNYT) July 12, 2016
2/2 If there's a redo of Bush v. Gore, how does Ginsburg not recuse herself, given her Trump comments?— Jeff Greenfield (@greenfield64) July 11, 2016
If a conservative Justice had said such a thing, Left would have called for his/her head. Would have been removed https://t.co/5demWpGDqB— HillBuzz (@HillBuzz) July 12, 2016
