Trump Hits Back On Chief Justice John Roberts’s Criticism

Ashley (Kimber)

Chief Justice John Roberts released a brief statement today, defending the “independent” judiciary and criticizing Trump calling a judge an “Obama judge.”

This comes after President Trump criticized the federal “Obama judge” who blocked his asylum ban.

Roberts said Wednesday the U.S. doesn’t have “Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges.” He commented in a statement released by the Supreme Court after a query by The Associated Press.

Roberts said on the day before Thanksgiving that an “independent judiciary is something we should all be thankful for.”

The White House had no immediate response to a request for comment on Roberts’ criticism.

But as fine and dandy as it is to believe that… he’s wrong.

BINGO.

Judges are SUPPOSED to be impartial. They’re not.

And now President Trump has issued a response:

He’s right.

But a fight between POTUS and Chief Justice of SCOTUS is NOT what I was expecting today…
