Skip to comments.After rare rebuke from Chief Justice John Roberts, Trump fires back on Twitter
Posted on 11/21/2018 5:37:29 PM PST by Mariner
Chief Justice John Roberts rebutted President Donald Trump's recent criticism that the recent ruling against the administration's asylum policy on migrants was issued by an "Obama judge".
We do not have Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges," Roberts, who originally responded to the Associated Press, said via a statement issued from the Supreme Court's press office. "What we have is an extraordinary group of dedicated judges doing their level best to do equal right to those appearing before them. That independent judiciary is something we should all be thankful for.
The president responded directly to the comments in a pair of tweets Wednesday afternoon. "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," Trump said.

Roberts is a narrow minded pinhead.
Love the comment.
Roberts needs a swift kick in the rump. Thank you, Trump.
Funny to see such old people like Grassly being so techy. In any case Grassley is spot on in showing Roberts drinks douche water.
I smell a Souter!
“They are above nothing, and nobody in this country besides their own courtroom. It’s time they were brought to heel.”
I’m on board. What’s your plan to heel these black-robe fascists? Our gutless Congress sure won’t bring these black robe traitors to heel. IMO, it will fall to the citizens to defend their constitution. I have an idea, but want to hear your thoughts.
Roberts is a communist Democrat and not worthy the SC. This rat is biased.
That would be so evil.
We do not have Obama judges
So sayeth Judge Obamacare.
Who elected Roberts? The elite?
” I have an idea, but want to hear your thoughts.”
It is refreshing to see a POTUS who is a real human being and not simply the great Oz hiding behind focus groups.
There are obama judges. This is why harry changed the rules of the Senate and went nuclear. He wanted to pack the court with obama judges.
Time to shove the nuclear option right back into the face of the obama crowd and ensure a bunch of President Trump judges for the next generation.
An epileptic narrow minded pinhead.
“It is refreshing to see a POTUS who is a real human being and not simply the great Oz hiding behind focus groups.”
And a fearless lout.
I love it.
Roberts is giving us the grammar school bullshit civics lesson that all the judges are politically neutral, when we just endured a 50 year war to change the Supreme Court to end damn liberal bias.
Roberts must think we are idiots. It is precisely a foundation reason why Trump got elected - was to appoint conservative judges, and stop this madness of these hooded maniacs from thinking they are running the country.
Is Roberts playing to the DNC-Media so they can blow kisses to him on TV, or worse, will Roberts pick-up where Kennedy left off and become the Judge to plop the turd in the punch bowl?
The 9th Circuit has been the Augean Stables for decades, and it must be cleaned up. Trump has to keep going and fix the federal bench.
Roberts ought to complain about other Judges usurping the power of the President, unconstitutionally.
If judges were not political, the Kavanaugh confirmation circus would never have happened. Presidential campaigns often use the promise or threat of who might be appointed to courts as part of their marketing strategies. As do political parties.
Roberts’ statement is utterly dishonest. And he knows it.
Also please to see Grassley pointing out that Roberts never rebuked Obama for attacking the Court at a State of the Union speech. Or for telling it that it can’t overturn Obamacare, with vague threats of repercussions.
It seems to me that the difference between the way people react to Trump’s actions and the way they reacted to Obama’s is that they actually feared Obama. He was a deep state tool, and he was not afraid to use the power of the deep state against his enemies. He spied on everyone, journalists, Senators, businessmen, he prosecuted his enemies (D’souza, for example) and he killed when he wanted to (Michael Hastings, Seal Team 6, his Chicago boyfriends). People feared him.
It seems to me that it wouldn’t hurt for Trump to do things that caused a little fear. Nothing illegal (heaven forbid!) but, dammit, get some people prosecuted, tell some secrets about some people, make them know you are boss and are not to be trifled with by some pussy-ass little supreme court panty waist judge.
Roberts is a vain M Fer. He can’t handle the praise that Trump has heaped on the last 2 nominees to the Supreme Court. Roberts can’t hold a candle to their qualifications.
Tell me about it.
I accidentally removed that meme of Husseins wonderful presidential portrait somebody shopped with his binoculars to eye and headset on. It said What make you think Im spying on you?. I have tried finding it again online but Im always directed to the ones greatest memes slamming me.
Whomever on FR still has that meme, I beg you please post it again. So I can steal it. My chat rooms lefties hated it.
