Trump vs. Ginsburg

A quote from Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg:
“He (Trump) is a faker. He has no consistency about him. He says whatever comes into his head at the moment.
I can't imagine what this place would be -- I can't imagine what the country would be -- with Donald Trump as our president. For the country, it could be four years. For the court, it could be -- I don't even want to contemplate that."
(Via CNN and the New York Times)

Trump's reply sounds as if it was whatever came into his head at the moment -
"Justice Ginsburg of the U.S. Supreme Court has embarrassed all by making very dumb political statements about me. Her mind is shot - resign!"
(Via Twitter)

But... there's a catch.
Trump was actually right!

The Judicial Canon of Ethics states that a sitting judge shall not publicly endorse or oppose a candidate in 5 (A)(1)(b).

Ginsburg later issued an "apology" (it was really more of an "I regret saying that").

Some takeaways -
Alpha jerkboy owns feminist SCOTUS member who hit The Wall some 50 years ago.
Trump shows the influence he wields in making a SCOTUS judge back down.
The left has no regard for the rule of law.
The left has even less regard for common decency.
Feminism is still awful.
