Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg got some tragic news this week when she learned that pressure is mounting for her to recuse herself from the upcoming case on Donald Trump’s temporary travel ban order given her open dislike of the president.
Western Journalism reported that the Supreme Court has set Monday, June 12 as the deadline for anyone who wishes to challenge the travel ban to submit their responses. Ginsburg has openly bashed Trump frequently in the media, beginning last summer.“He is a faker. He has no consistency about him,” she told CNN last July. “He says whatever comes into his head at the moment. He really has an ego. How has he gotten away with not turning over his tax returns?”
When asked how the Supreme Court would be impacted by a Trump presidency, Ginsburg said, “I don’t want to think about that possibility, but if it should be, then everything is up for grabs.”
“I can’t imagine what this place would be — I can’t imagine what the country would be — with Donald Trump as our president,” she later added.
