Ruth Bader Ginsburg Apologizes to Trump: 'Judges Should Avoid Commenting on a Candidate for Public Office'
This justice got served.
Donald Trump has received an apology from Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg who spoke out against the soon-to-be Republican nominee.
"On reflection, my recent remarks in response to press inquiries were ill-advised and I regret making them," Ginsburg said in a statement. "Judges should avoid commenting on a candidate for public office. In the future I will be more circumspect."
Ginsburg had trashed Trump in a New York Times interview Tuesday, saying: “I can't imagine what the country would be with Donald Trump as our president.”
In a CNN interview earlier this week, she called the presumptive GOP nominee a “faker” who “really has an ego.”
Following her comments about Trump, the billionaire went off on his favorite social media platform – Twitter.
Is Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg going to apologize to me for her misconduct? Big mistake by an incompetent judge!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 13, 2016
If I win the Presidency, we will swamp Justice Ginsburg with real judges and real legal opinions!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 13, 2016
On Tuesday, he also spoke to The New York Times where he said: “I think it’s highly inappropriate that a United States Supreme Court judge gets involved in a political campaign, frankly. I think it’s a disgrace to the court, and I think she should apologize to the court. I couldn’t believe it when I saw it.”
