I've been hoping Der Trumper's Fascist behavior would push Roberts to oppose the GOPerLords drive to Corporate Oligarchy if only to keep from going down in History as the First POLITICAL Chief Justice.

 

His rebuke was necessary and more than welcome, but he still hasn't changed his mind on Citizens United or Gerrymandering.

 

We'll have to wait and see if this is an incipient sign of an emerging spine and the rebirth of an INDEPENDANT Judiciary, or just the selfcentered reaction to the bruised ego of a dedicated Republican.

 The Court will tire of trump's bullying attempts and it looks like that is what has happened this time.

 

Good for Roberts.

 

Don't judge people by what they say, talk is cheap, judge them by what they do.

The Supreme Court also has the duty to say "what the law IS"(Marbury v Madison 1803)...

But trump supporters believe trump. The Republicans try to appoint extreme Right Justices to interpret (twist) the Constitution to say what they want it to in respect to certain issues. In effect, they want to legislate through the Supreme Court because they can't seem to legislate themselves. Judges like the one trump was 'whining and howling at the moon' about are judges that get in the way of that happening by ruling according to the intent of the  Constitution.  The Court will tire of trump's bullying attempts and it looks like that is what has happened this time.

 

Good for Roberts.

Our Narcissist-in-Chief has attacked every American institution, so why not the supreme Court?  His narcissism has him putting himself above everyone, even our Supreme Court Justices, thinking he knows more about the Constitution and law than they do. I am glad to see him getting called on it, and it's about time.

 

The gutless Washington Republicans cow-tow to him and it resulted in the blue wave that took the house by a storm not seen since Nixon. Hopefully the 'Blue Wave' that swept the nation at the state level will do away with many crookedly drawn gerrymandered districts and in 2020 the Dems may take the Senate along with the White House. The Republicans better grow some gonads and stand up to trump or their days are numbered.

By Pete Williams and Associated Press

 

WASHINGTON — In a highly unusual public statement, Chief Justice John Roberts rebutted President Donald Trump's statement that a ruling against the administration was made by "an Obama judge."

 

Asked Wednesday by the Associated Press about the president's comment, Roberts responded, "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."

 
 

He added on the day before Thanksgiving that an "independent judiciary is something we should all be thankful for."

 

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.

The president responded several hours later, saying on Twitter that there are, in fact, "Obama judges."
