Donald Trump, “Justice Ginsburg’s Mind is ‘Shot’, Resign!”
Donald Trump hammered Ruth Bader-Ginsburg Wednesday morning, calling on the Supreme Court Justice to not only step down from her post, but also claimed that her mind is “shot.”
Just hours after a national network story ran in which Ms. Ginsburg called him a “faker” for not releasing his tax returns, Donald Trump Tweeted the following: “Justice Ginsburg of the US Supreme Court has embarrassed all by making very dumb political statements about me. Her mind is shot- resign!”
The latest attacks come after Ms. Ginsburg told the NY-T’s Sunday that she does not want to “contemplate” what a Trump Presidency would look like.
“I can’t imagine what this place would be — I can’t imagine what the country would be — with Donald Trump as our president,” Ms. Ginsburg told the NY-T’s. “For the country, it could be four years. For the court, it could be — I don’t even want to contemplate that.”
According to prior reports, Donald Trump was taken back by her public remark, which was an uncharacteristically opinion for a Supreme Court Justice.
“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 she should be saying that?” Trump said. “It’s so beneath the court for her to be making statements like that. It only energizes my base even more. And I would hope that she would get off the court as soon as possible.”
According to the WT’s, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R:KY) chimed in by noting that it was “totally inappropriate” for Justice Ginsburg to criticize Donald Trump.
He added that members of the Supreme Court should refrain from commenting on US elections.
“It raises a level of skepticism that the American people have from time to time about just how objective the Supreme Court is, whether they’re over there to call the balls and strikes, or weigh in on one side or another,” Senator McConnell said.
