Chief Justice John Roberts, a George W. Bush appointee who then later sided with President Obama’s highly controversial/illegal Obamacare mandate, took time to give a very rare public rebuke of a sitting president this week when he admonished President Trump for dismissing a left-leaning judge who just ruled against the president’s illegal immigrant asylum policy as an “Obama judge.” Roberts wants Americans to believe the judicial system is not politically biased. Yeah, right…
WASHINGTON (AP) — Chief Justice John Roberts is pushing back against President Donald Trump for his description of a judge who ruled against Trump’s migrant asylum policy as an “Obama judge.”
It’s the first time the Republican-appointed leader of the federal judiciary has offered even a hint of criticism of Trump, who has previously blasted federal judges who ruled against him.
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.
It’s a highly unusual move for Chief Justice Roberts, one that liberals hope signals he is prepared to rule against the Trump administration in the future. Given Justice Roberts’s dubious distinction as being the justice who kept Obamacare intact, that hope might sadly prove accurate.
Time will tell but it’s likely Roberts has just made the president’s naughty list this holiday season especially given the thousands of would-be illegals who are attempting at this very moment to invade America’s southern border in what more and more believe is a test-run for future invasions of even greater size.
