Supreme Court Justice John Roberts, who was appointed by George W. Bush and wrote the majority opinion that ushered in Obamacare, rebuked President Trump.  Roberts chided Trump for referring to Judge Jon Tigar as an “Obama Judge” after he ruled against Trump’s executive order requiring migrants who are seeking asylum to enter at official ports of entry, which necessitates that they wait in line.
Trump responded by writing, “Justice Roberts can say what he wants, but the 9th Circuit is a complete & total disaster. It is out of control, has a horrible reputation, is overturned more than any Circuit in the Country, 79%, & is used to get an almost guaranteed result. Judges must not Legislate Security…and Safety at the Border, or anywhere else. They know nothing about it and are making our Country unsafe. Our great Law Enforcement professionals MUST BE ALLOWED TO DO THEIR JOB! If not there will be only bedlam, chaos, injury and death. We want the Constitution as written!” 


President Trump refused to back down and continued to spar with Chief Justice Roberts on Thanksgiving morning.

In a rare rebuke, Chief Justice John Roberts criticized President Trump over his remarks about the Obama-appointed judge Jon Tiger reversing his asylum policy.

On Tuesday, President Trump lashed out at the liberal activist ‘Obama judge’ in San Francisco who put his asylum policy on hold.

Chief Justice Roberts, who was nominated by George W. Bush and voted in favor to uphold Obamacare, lashed out at Trump on Wednesday saying the U.S. doesn’t have “Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges.”

In contrast, the Chief never attacked Barack Obama after he rebuked the Supreme Court during a State of the Union speech in 2010.

There’s nothing about the Constitution that the leftists are following. They hold the Constitution up for Trump to follow, but don’t follow it themselves. We may have to go as much outside the Constitution to re-right this ship before we can get back on board and follow it. Hard to fight fair when the other side isn’t.

The Bible says not to return evil for evil. We simply have to have faith in the President that he will do the right thing and pray for unity among Congress, the Supreme Court and the President….Too bad that this country has forgotten all about respect for the office of the President. The Judicial System has to be reprimanded every time a judge writes a law by giving his own personal interpretation instead of the interpretation of the law itself. In this case, Judge Roberts is a globalist and his voting record confirms this. As a Bush Judge, we must… Read more »

I wish Justice Roberts would take that smirk off his face…It screams of pride.
