Ruth Bader Ginsburg makes Democrats cringe

"Her comments ... call into question her ability to adjudicate any case involving the Trump administration [if there is one]", says Josh Blackman, a professor at the South Texas College of Law.

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump told Fox News' Bret Baier in an interview Wednesday that he questions Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's mental capacity. The 83-year-old says she can't imagine what the country would be like with Trump as our president, nor does she want to. "Her mind is shot- resign!"

Trump responded to Ginsburg's latest comment with a call for her to resign, Politico reports. He told The New York Times, "I think she should apologise to the court".

The Times said there was no legal requirement that Supreme Court justices keep silent on political campaigns, but it expressed concern that Ginsburg would jeopardise her commitment to impartiality.

"For her to come out and to say the kind of things there is nearly something wrong with her". Does Ginsburg have a First Amendment right to express her views about the presidential race?

The Notorious RBG can't imagine The Donald as president.

In a later interview with the New York Times, Ginsburg took the jabs a step further, declaring that Trump "has no consistency about him", and is a "faker," before making her remarks about moving out of the country.

He really has an ego.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said that it was "totally inappropriate" for Justice Ginsburg to lash out at his party's likely candidate and it was not her place to try to influence the election for president.

House Speaker Paul Ryan says, "I find it very peculiar, and I think it's out of place for an appointed branch of government".

As chief justice, Roberts has labored mightily to protect the court's reputation and ensure that the public sees its members as more than politicians in robes. "And I don't think that's a legitimate, or even plausible, interpretation of what the state constitution meant". And how is Ginsburg anything but a real judge who has written hundreds of real legal decisions with important precedential value for more than two decades?

"For someone on the Supreme Court who is going to be calling balls and strikes in the future based upon whatever the next president and Congress does, that strikes me as inherently biased and out of the realm", he offered.

For good reasons, the Code of Conduct for federal judges admonishes them to refrain from publicly endorsing or opposing candidates for public office.
