Donald Trump is right about Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg: It’s inappropriate for her to be sounding off on the presidential race, the New York Times declares in a harsh rebuke of the liberal jurist, NEWSMAX REPORTS.
“There’s no legal requirement that Supreme Court justices refrain from commenting on a presidential campaign,” the editorial board writes. “But Justice Ginsburg’s comments show why their tradition has been to keep silent.”
The Times says:
“Washington is more than partisan enough without the spectacle of a Supreme Court justice flinging herself into the mosh pit. [She] needs to drop the political punditry and the name-calling. Three times in the past week, Justice Ginsburg has publicly discussed her view of the presidential race, in the sharpest terms.”
