Ginsberg gets thumped for Dump Trump remarks.

"In a statement to the Washington Post, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said: “On reflection, my recent remarks in response to press inquiries were ill-advised and I regret making them. Judges should avoid commenting on a candidate for public office. In the future I will be more circumspect.' ”
" 'On reflection, my recent remarks' were less than 'circumspect' "
That's an apology?

Ruth Bader Ginsburg

. . . "To the Associated Press, Ginsburg said, as WND previously reported: “I don’t want to think about [a Trump presidency] possibility, but if it should be, then everything is up for grabs.”
"And to the New York Times, she said, while reflecting on a Trump presidency: “For the country, it could be four years. For the court, it could be – I don’t even want to contemplate that.' ”
Ginsburg also mentioned a joke she and her now-deceased husband Marty shared, in which they considered Trump in the White House and said: “Now it’s time for us to move to New Zealand,” various media reported. And, she called him a “faker” who “really has an ego” and “has no consistency about him,” as NBC News reported.

Somehow I can see Ginsberg retiring in time for Obama to select her replacement.

More at Politico   "Ginsburg’s surprisingly outspoken comments on the presidential election drew condemnation from Democrats, as well as the Times and Washington Post’s editorial boards."

If what RBG did is a disgrace to the court, she’s in illustrious company   . . . "O’Connor had a long history of rooting for the Bushes in presidential elections. In 1988, she wrote to longtime political ally Senator Barry Goldwater, in a letter now in his public archives, that she “would be thankful if George B wins. It is vital for the Court and the nation that he does.' ” . . .

From The Volokh Conspiracy: Justice Ginsburg takes selfless actions to prevent election litigation deadlock  . . . As others have noted too, Ginsburg’s comments have been quite unusual for a sitting justice, and she continues to shoot from the hip with each additional opportunity. Although I largely agree with Ginsburg’s assessment of Trump, it is surprising to hear such things from a sitting Supreme Court justice. What can explain her comments? I have an idea." . . .
