US Supreme Court chief issues rare rebuke to Donald Trump

There are 100 comments on the Bridgwater Mercury story from Wednesday Nov 21, titled US Supreme Court chief issues rare rebuke to Donald Trump. In it, Bridgwater Mercury reports that:

Chief Justice John Roberts is pushing back against President Donald Trump for his description of a judge who ruled against Mr Trump's migrant asylum policy as an "Obama judge". It is the first time the Republican-appointed leader of the federal judiciary has offered even a hint of criticism of Mr Trump, who has previously criticised federal judges who ruled against him.

John "Obamacare" Roberts is a coward and a sell-out! He upheld the individual mandate while talking about how it was Unconstitutional in his decision. He is the greatest coward of the 21st century so far. Trump had the guts to immediately outlaw the individual mandate, protecting our freedom and ensuring the government cannot force us to buy any product!

Judges appointed by Obama are left leaning judges. They will always go against Trump.

Any qualified and competent Judge will go against Trump because Trump is a moron with no understanding of anything as complex as the law.

Robert's statment is as wrong as Trump's. We don't have an independent judiciary . . . Kavanaugh is a political animal in the extreme, as are many others.

Trump's scare tactics about the caravan were clearly a racist ploy to stir up fear ahead of the election. The thousands of troops sent to the southwest border before the election will start coming home as early as this week, just as asylum seekers from the caravan are beginning to arrive. The politicization of the military and the lack of evidence to justify the deployment of active duty troops to confront the caravan should be deeply disturbing even to supporters.

Spock.... You are only for these invaders because Trump is against. If he was for, you'd be against. It's not like you care about these people. You hate Trump because he's for America and you are a communist. Are you getting freebies?

Remember when Roberts made Obama look like a total ass the first 5 seconds of his adminiatration when the Supreme Court Justice purposely altered the oath of office? That was frigging awesome! Racists everywhere laughed and said, "You See!! I frigging told you so!!!"

And Rump has already torn him a new Ahole for it, lol.

Roberts didn't say a damn thing, when Obama insulted the Supreme Court before both houses of Congress in a State of the Union speech, even AFTER the attempt to shame him in front of the country, when decorum kept the Justices quiet to the President's insults. Yet, when a President has a legitimate complaint about Judicial overreach, Roberts gets political. Coward to firebrand in a few short years...

Obama expressed his respect for the Court, and disagreed with the decision. How dare you compare that with the attempted strong-arming by the loathsome Donald Trump.

Obama lied before Congress and the Country, insulting the Court, when they could not respond. He basically said, "With due respect for Separation of Powers, you're a bunch of idiots." You distort that to "respect." Your inability to perceive actual "strong-arming" is also noted. You don't know what strong-arming is. Strong-arming is a Judge using his bench to impede actual written Law, as the Obama appointee did.
