Chief Justice John Roberts Blasts Traitor Trump For Attacking The Co-Equal Judiciary Branch Of Gov’t Repeatedly


Right wingers used to always talk about the Constitution. Not one of them has read it.  The chief justice of the United States and the president of the United States engaged in an extraordinary war of words Wednesday over the independence of the federal judiciary, with Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. issuing a rare rebuke of President Trump’s criticism of an “Obama judge” who ruled against the administration.


“We do not have Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges,” Roberts said in a statement released by the court’s public information office. “What we have is an extraordinary group of dedicated judges doing their level best to do equal right to those appearing before them.”

Roberts’s Thanksgiving eve statement ended: “That independent judiciary is something we should all be thankful for.”

The president responded quickly from his vacation home in Florida, via Twitter:

“Sorry Chief Justice John Roberts, but you do indeed have ‘Obama judges,’ and they have a much different point of view than the people who are charged with the safety of our country. It would be great if the 9th Circuit was indeed an ‘independent judiciary’ . . .”

Trump was referring to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit, which covers much of the West Coast — although the ruling he was criticizing came from a district judge in California, not the circuit court. Trump feels aggrieved by decisions of the appeals court, which he tweeted Wednesday has become “a terrible, costly and dangerous disgrace.”

Trump regularly says the 9th Circuit is the one most overruled by the Supreme Court, but that depends on the time period under consideration. Studies show that over the past five years, three others have a higher percentage of decisions overturned.

The rebuke-and-retort between the heads of two branches of the federal government astounded those who carefully watch the Supreme Court. Justices, and the chief justice in particular, hardly ever issue statements on news events.
