CHIEF JUSTICE ROBERTS Lectures Trump on Criticizing Liberal Judge — Was Silent When Obama Scolded SCOTUS at State of the Union
On Tuesday, President Trump lashed out at the liberal activist ‘Obama judge’ John Tigar in San Francisco who put the president’s asylum policy on hold.
“Every case that gets filed in the 9th Circuit, we get beaten. And then we end up having to go to the Supreme Court, like the travel ban, and we won,” Trump said.
Chief Justice John Roberts, who was nominated by George W. Bush and voted in favor to uphold Obamacare, lashed out at Trump on Wednesday.
On Wednesday John Roberts said the U.S. doesn’t have “Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges.” He commented in a statement released by the Supreme Court after a query by The Associated Press.
This was a rare rebuke of the US President by the Supreme Court Chief Justice.
Back in 2010 Barack Obama took the unusual step of scolding the Supreme Court during his State of the Union Address.
Barack Obama: “With all due deference to separation of powers, last week the Supreme Court reversed a century of law that I believe will open the floodgates for special interests — including foreign corporations — to spend without limit in our elections. I don’t think American elections should be bankrolled by America’s most powerful interests, or worse, by foreign entities. They should be decided by the American people. And I’d urge Democrats and Republicans to pass a bill that helps to correct some of these problems.”
