    WASHINGTON — Chief Justice John Roberts is pushing back against President Donald Trump's description of a judge who ruled against Trump's new migrant asylum policy as an "Obama judge." It's the first time that the 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.

    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."

Roberts said Wednesday the U.S. doesn't have "Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges."

    The former president told David Axelrod that America is more divided than ever, but that it doesn’t have to be that way. CHICAGO—Barack Obama refused to answer directly when asked whether he could beat Donald Trump in a head-to-head race, but he said on Tuesday that he believes his vision of America is already more in touch with most Americans, and will win out in the end. However, the man who burst onto the national political scene with his 2004 Democratic National Convention speech declaring that there’s no red or blue America agreed with his old political consultant David Axelrod...

    Ohio Governor John Kasich, a possible 2020 candidate, slammed Donald Trump for dividing the country by playing the “blame game.” “What I have resented and disliked about the president is instead of being a unifier and someone who can dig deep into people’s problems and say ‘yes those are problems, but together we can fix them,’ he has played a blame game," Kasich commented during a speech in New Hampshire at the Loeb School’s First Amendment Gala on Thursday. "He has allowed people to consider themselves victims," Kasich said, and fostered the idea in them that if good things failed...

    No, even though the votes from last week aren’t even all counted yet, it is, of course, time to move on to the next election. And while the discussion so far has focused on which Democrats are running and who among them is best positioned to defeat President Trump, I’ve got the perfect candidate to dethrone the Donald. It’s Mitt Romney. Or maybe Jeff Flake. Ben Sasse? Sure, whatever. Any of them will do. Because I’m not suggesting that any of these vocal Trump critics from within the president’s own party — including Massachusetts’ re-gift to Utah — run as...

    We’ve come to know and love Jim Acosta’s ridiculous, narcissistic antics at White House press conferences, so it was all in all good news he was being allowed back in to make a fool of himself all over again. Friday, a judge ruled that the White House must give the CNN reporter (I use that term loosely) his hard pass back, which granted him access to the White House grounds. Acosta’s hard pass had been temporarily revoked after he refused to hand the microphone back to a White House intern per the President’s instructions.

    Ohio Gov. John Kasich was on a three-city swing through New Hampshire this week, potentially feeling out a 2020 run for the White House as a Republican, or as an independent. When CNN asked Kasich during a stop in Manchester, N.H., about how he's calculating his chances, the governor replied, "I don't do math calculations. That's not what I do." "I mean, all options are on the table. And the question is, ultimately, can I have a very positive impact on the country, and I've got lots of people here who were saying to me just -- I was here...

    In a highly unusual move, lawyer Tom Goldstein asked the US Supreme Court on Friday evening to declare Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein as the acting attorney general, instead of Matthew Whitaker who currently holds the job. Goldstein also represented Maryland's Attorney General in a similar court filing at the district court level earlier this week. Goldstein's motion was filed in connection with a gun rights case that is before the Supreme Court as a petition for a writ of certiorari, meaning the nine Justices will meet in conference at a date still to be determined to decide whether to...

Lawyers for Mr. Acosta, the network’s chief White House correspondent, argued that the unusual revocation of a reporter’s press pass by the White...

As we have seen, Donny Deutsch has had a somewhat less than spectacular record when predicting on the subject of President Donald Trump. In fact, his predictions have often been spectacularly wrong.Deutsch's latest prediction on Trump was delivered on Monday's Morning Joe. In response to co-host Joe Scarborough's observation that Trump must already know he is going to lose re-election in 2020, Deutsch upped the ante on silliness by suggesting that if Trump does lose, he will stage...

    WASHINGTON — Sen. Sherrod Brown, who won a third term last week to represent Ohio in the U.S. Senate, said Monday he is considering running for president in 2020. Brown, a Democrat who won re-election Tuesday by about 6 percentage points, said he’s hearing “sort of a crescendo” of interest in him seeking the White House, be it through his wife Connie Schultz’s Facebook page, or through calls or emails. “We’re hearing it increase, so we’re thinking about it as a result,” he said, adding, “we’re not close to saying yes.”
