Ginsburg apologizes for ‘ill-advised’ criticisms of Trump

by Harper Neidig | The Hill  |  published on July 14, 2016


Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Thursday said she regrets disparaging Donald Trump.

“On reflection, my recent remarks in response to press inquiries were ill-advised and I regret making them,” she said in a statement. “Judges should avoid commenting on a candidate for public office. In the future I will be more circumspect.”

Ginsburg, 83, has faced criticism after making series of comments this week slamming Trump, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee.

She joked to the New York Times on Sunday that she would move to New Zealand if Trump became president.

“I can’t imagine what the country would be with Donald Trump as our president,” she said in the interview. “For the country, it could be four years. For the court, it could be — I don’t even want to contemplate that.”

    Justice Ginsburg has realized that she handed Donald Trump a rousing endorsement. Most conservatives will see Ginsburg comments as validation that Donald Trump is probably a good candidate. Ms. Ginsburg’s comments highlight what is at stake in this election. If Hillary wins she will be able to cement a liberal lean to the court for several decades. If Trump wins there is a good chance the court will maintain a moderate to conservative lean for several decades.

    The next president may pick four or five justices for the Supreme Court while they are in office. Elections have consequences. Ruth Bader Ginsburg realizes that and we should also.

    In preference to the Stalinesque positions of “O”? She spoke her mind, now she needs to fall on her sword, or knitting needle – but fall she should — Just like Target, do not let her get a free pass. A military officer would never, and “O” has fired some for the same thing– only the military officers were correct —
