.MaddowBlog: Pres. Trump's offensive against Justice Sotomayor crumbles under scrutiny
The more Donald Trump tries to go after Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the less sense his argument makes.
This was hardly an outlandish assessment. In fact, it's bolsteredIn his tweet on the subject, Trump wrote that Sotomayor accused the Republican-appointed justices"of being biased in favor of Trump." Except, that's not even close to being what she wrote.
I realize the president is relatively new to government, and he's struggled at times with Civics 101, but as long as there's been a Supreme Court, there have been justices trying to shame their colleagues into agreeing with them.

MaddowBlog Supremem Court Justices are to remain out of politics and to remain unbiased... ....something Sotomayor and the MSM clearly does NOT understand Fortunately the majority of Americans understand this. MaddowBlog MaddowBlog Supreme Court Justices have the responsibility to be above politics. If they cannot maintain the impartiality the Court ceases to be valid. Trump is a politician. It is his place to comment on politics. Justice Sotomayor was completely wrong to make her comments.
MaddowBlog She is not entitled to her biased political views! She doesn't make the law, her job is to APPLY the law as WRITTEN! MaddowBlog No it doesn't.

MaddowBlog Sotomayor has politicized the SCOTUS, it took time but we knew that’s the reason Obama nominated her. MaddowBlog Trump reacts routinely with little understanding of the facts!

No doubt Sotomayor huddled with her former boss and globalist puppet, Obama, to launch this distraction.

Trump Says Sotomayor, Ginsburg Should Recuse Themselves From Cases Involving HimThe president's remarks came in apparent reference to a dissent by Justice Sotomayor who wrote that the government had claimed 'one emergency after another' to seek an 'unprecedented number of' stays. The remarks are an apparent reference to a recent Sotomayor dissent in which she wrote that the administration had made a habit of turning to the Supreme Court after losses in lower courts. Uh no they should not recuse themselves we are still not a dictatorship, that I know of? Why is his criticism unjustified?
