Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor said Tuesday that Americans cant afford to despair in the wake of Donald Trump's election as president.
Speaking to an audience at a Capitol Hill cultural center, Sotomayor said the nation cant afford for a president to fail, but stressed that every person has an obligation both to continue being heard and to continue doing the right thing.
The justice was responding to a question from radio host Bill Press about whether Trumps victory made her feel apprehensive. She declined to answer directly, but said people cant afford to give up on pursuing the values that we and others have fought so hard to achieve.
So for me this is a challenge, she said. I will continue doing what I think is the right thing.

Trump will get two SCOTUS picks for sure. Possibly three.
Hoping Cruz is #1.
1. He’s brilliant and young and will give ‘em hell for decades.
2. Better have him there than trying to primary Trump in 3 years or in some job he’s not suited for (AG).
3. He can play the Latino card if leftists go after him at the confirmation.
The thoughts of the Wise Latina.
“Sotomayor says nation ‘can’t afford to despair’ over Trump”,
Well ... I at least agree with the Wise Latina on this issue.
Those are thoughts that would get one thrown off the bar in a sane universe.
>> So for me this is a challenge, she said. I will continue doing what I think is the right thing.
WTF is the challenge? The Constitution?
Despair? I’m elated!
She doesn’t give a flying flip about the Constitution.
Obama himself (the ‘scholar’ that he is) said it only guaranteed negative liberties.
Not surprised at Sotmayor’s absolute contempt for our laws. She’s a leftist hack who was appointed because of her vagina and last name.
The fat super delegate opens her mouth, effectively shtting in a busy public intersection.
Thanks brown bagger, we’ll take it from here.
Exactly what I picked up from it. Justifying the sin of pride via a dramatic and heroic fight for good (one’s own version of good, one’s own will, followed by praise of the illusion of self) is as old as man. Oops, sorry, I meant as old as folks. Jesus died for the sins of folks :-)
Most of the Ten Commandments are “negative liberties” too. Source of Obama’s hate towards Christians and Jews.
And of course, the communist constitutions constitute these “liberties” as “positive” and stipulate they be “in the interests of the working class”, meaning you can’t exercise them.
No, she thinks she's a legislator, with lifetime tenure, in a legislative body of nine super-senators.
Well, this “völkisch” president is on the way out, and so ought to be his law-hating “justices”.
And now it looks like there are two active legislators.
So the wise-mouth Latina”
If she is supposed to be so “Wise”, why is she 200 LBS OVERWEIGHT and Severely OBESE, Most likely has type 2 Diabetes that SHE CREATED FOR HERSELF?????????
I know Justices can be impeached, I wonder what the standard is for kicking that process off?
That’s beyond legislator, into dictator.
the wise latina speaks.
