This dispute reminds me of the uproar yesterday over the Whitehttps:// House statement on Saudi Arabia: Trump has a point, but his approach to it is unbecoming of the presidency.
Wow. After Trump said he was going to file a complaint about the 9th Circuit Court, Chief Justice John Roberts said: We do not have Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges. What we have is an extraordinary group of dedicated judges " Per @JoanBiskupic pic.twitter.com/xK2o8GMSI8

That was a reaction to POTUS complaining yesterday after a west coast judge blocked his new asylum policy, This was an Obama judge, and Ill tell you what, its not going to happen like this anymore.
Its ironic that Trump would raise the concept of Obama judges or Trump judges this week when it was a Trump judge who ruled against him in the Jim Acosta case. But that aside, are there such things in reality as Obama judges and Trump judges? Er, yes, of course. Left-wing and right-wing would have been better adjectives since federal judges are far more loyal to their ideology than they are to the particular president who appointed them, but you take Trumps point.
2nd Roberts sentence should end, and whose sense of how to do that varies in predictable ways that generally line up with who appointed them. Ramesh Ponnuru (@RameshPonnuru) November 21, 2018
Any non-moron will disagree with Mr Roberts.
Roberts is compromised.
Wish that could be used to get him to resign.
Just watch the MSM when Trump appointed Judge does something ,LOL
“....Roberts is compromised.
Wish that could be used to get him to resign....”
Exactly. Use that dirt to somehow get this traitorous POS to resign.
John Roberts is paid for judgments.
Cartel money is ubiquitous.
FU and your “tax”.
Roberts is stupid or lying, and probably both.
Man I wish.
Note that these are EXACTLY the same people who won’t hesitate to call Gorsuch or Kavanaugh “Trump judges”.
....yea,and there’s no bias in the media...blah,blah,blah
If Roberts was really as smart as he should be he would have announced that he had to recuse himself from making any comment. How can he be both judge and defendant (so to speak) in the same case?
The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court just stupidly walked into a classic Trump-trap.
And we thought the court was now 5 - 4.
There’s something the slimes have on Roberts, and I’m afraid we’re going to find out it’s 4 - 5.
Roberts has a bad case of Globalist Bushweed Asthma. I’m kind of surprised the symptoms have been dormant for the last 3 years.
But now that Trump is close to get funding for the Wall, we’re liable to see more outbreaks of Bushweed Asthma.
“The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court just stupidly walked into a classic Trump-trap.”
Many posters here wonder if it’s not the other way around. As Obama’s bitch, Roberts may be setting the circumstances so that he’ll HAVE to recuse himself due to conflict. When he does that, it’ll be 4 to 4. When the vote is even, the ruling of the prior court — the NINTH CIRCUIT — will stand. That ain’t good.
Do Republican and Democratic nominees voted the same? What is Roberts talking about?
Roberts is trying to pretend the judiciary branch is not political.
We all know better, John.
If no Fed judges are biased than why does the SCOTUS reverse 80% of the 9th Circus Court’s decisions, Justice Roberts?
Shakespeare wanted to kill all the lawyers
Time is on PDJT's side with respect to that sentiment.
And thanks for putting the idea into play, Justice Roberts.
