Posted on 11/21/2018 1:37:21 PM PST by conservative98
President Trump took time off from his long holiday weekend on Wednesday to slam Chief Justice John Roberts, who earlier in the day had rebuked the president for his attacks on the federal judiciary.
Sorry Chief Justice John Roberts, but you do indeed have Obama judges, and they have a much different point of view than the people who are charged with the safety of our country. It would be great if the 9th Circuit was indeed an independent judiciary, the commander-in-chief tweeted from Mar-a-Lago after a round of golf with the legendary Jack Nicklaus.
[B]ut if it is why are so many opposing view (on Border and Safety) cases filed there, and why are a vast number of those cases overturned. Please study the numbers, they are shocking. We need protection and security these rulings are making our country unsafe! Very dangerous and unwise!
Roberts had earlier criticized the president for his scathing criticism of the federal judiciary praising the longstanding American tradition of judicial independence.
Roberts specifically pushed back against the presidents description of a judge who ruled against his new hardline migrant asylum policy as an Obama judge.
We do not have Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges. What we have is an extraordinary group of dedicated judges doing their level best to do equal right to those appearing before them, Roberts said in a statement. That independent judiciary is something we should all be thankful for.

It appears John Roberts doesnt live in the real world....
MARK LEVIN·WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2018
It appears John Roberts doesnt live in the real world. A few decades ago he understood that there are, in fact, too many progressive judges and justices who legislate from the bench. Indeed, when it came to Obamacare, Roberts himself led the courts leftists in rewriting the Constitution and imposing that damnable law on all of us. We dont need any lectures from him. Indeed, he should be admonishing his own branch of government for its outrageous activism rather than playing to the media by attacking the president. Classless.
Don’t mess with Trump! He is right!
Quick, somebody post the jacuzzi photo or the lobstah dinner photo.
Roberts is an obama judge. From someone who took orders from Klownie the Kenyan about Obamacare, he should STFU. You’d think we would get crap from Kagan or Sotomayor, but the fake conservative judge talks crap..
Is there some reason that people can’t just call each other and discuss things without an audience?
Go blank yourself, Roberts.
Of COURSE there are biased Judges - if you’re too flipping stupid to realize that, it’s scary to think you’re on the Supreme Court.
Actually, consider how you jumped through seventeen layers of hoops to justify Obamacare (which is blatantly unAmerican) it’s scary to think you’re there ANYWAY.
Oh, shut up, Roberts. You candy ass. the President is correct - AGAIN.
Trump is dead-on as usual. But Roberts himself is highly suspect after the epic judicial treason that he committed with respect to Obamacare. Unconscionable. Imagine a Democrat-appointed judge rewriting GOP legislation to make it fit within whatever constitutional theory de jure they wanted it to. Unimaginable!!!
We have a President who isnt cowed by political correctness. He takes no prisoners!
He put CJ Roberts in his place. Watch fake news have a cow!
its scary to think youre on the Supreme Court
It absolutely is. Legions of partisan leftist judges have been legislating from the bench for decades. If Roberts cannot see the reality of that he is not fit to be even a small town judge.
Levin in on fire over the last few months !
Would he be interested in the SC? How I would love Trump to nominate him after Ginsberg ! The left would explode !
As others have pointed out, Roberts is clueless or deliberately self deceiving on this. There sure as HELL are leftist judges whose loyalty is to leftist ideology, and not to the Constitution.
I am more thankful every day God granted us a President with GUTS and FORTITUDE!!!!!
Dear mercy, THIS MAN FIGHTS!!!
God love him!
If judges ars independent and impartial, why are Democrats ferociously opposing Trump judicial nominations?
Roberts is s flappin idiot. Hes not fit to be CJ.
But NOW he finds his voice.
Our good friend Mattie loves this.
