Let's Stop Pretending The Supreme Court Is Nonpartisan
Ruth Bader Ginsburg isn't the first justice to talk politics, folks.By Eugene Daniels | July 13, 2016
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg really doesn't like Donald Trump, calling him a "faker" who she can't even imagine as president. And of course Trump fired back, tweeting, "Justice Ginsburg of the U.S. Supreme Court has embarrassed all by making very dumb political statements about me. Her mind is shot - resign!"
Nothing in the Constitution would force Ginsburg to resign, but her detractors say political comments have no place in the Supreme Court. History says they couldn't be more wrong.
"It was designed by the founders to be somewhat removed from the hurly-burly and fray of everyday politics but not to be a non-political institution," Dr. Marvin Overby of the Kinder Institute said in a sit down with Newsy.
