• Trump, SC justice double down in war of words


    WASHINGTON, D.C: It is pretty much unheard of for a US Supreme Court justice to speak openly about politics. But its aging doyenne Ruth Bader Ginsburg sure did, blasting Donald Trump as a phony. Now, Trump is questioning Ginsburg’s mental acuity and calling on her to resign. The editorial boards of the Washington Post and The New York Times say the liberal justice should have kept quiet. And even some of her ideological allies say she goofed. Ginsburg, 83, dropped all pretense of maintaining a judge’s customary reserve in two recent interviews in which she talked about Trump. “He is a faker,” Ginsburg said Monday of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Trump in an interview with CNN. “He has no consistency about him. He says whatever comes into his head at the moment,” said the Brooklyn-born justice, a petite but tough-as-nails figure who has earned the nickname “Notorious RBG”—a play on the stage name of the late rapper Notorious BIG.
