Former Arizona sheriff Richard Mack disparaged both the Supreme Court and Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg in particular during a radio interview with a “patriot” radio show, Right Wing Watch reported.
“Those people have been put there, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a very senile and evil person, she does not like America, she does not like our Constitution,” Mack said, adding that the nomination of Justice Elena Kagan’s nomination should be a source of shame for President Barack Obama.
“I think this Supreme Court is bought and paid for,” Mack ranted. “I think they’re just political hacks, most of them, and they will not use moral agency or tradition or biblical principle. They’re just going to do what they’re there for.”
Mack also parroted the conservative talking point calling for the high court’s female justices — in this case, Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor — to recuse themselves from Obergefell v. Hodges, which addresses same-sex marriage. Earlier this week, Republican lawmakers in Louisiana pushed a non-binding resolution through arguing that Kagan and Ginsburg do so because in their view, they could not be objective about the issue.
He predicted that the court would rule 5-4 to make marriage equality legal around the country and called for state governments to ignore that decision.
“The states are going to have to even more so recuse themselves from the federal government and from the Supreme Court ruling,” he said. “And it’s going to take some guts.”
Mack has argued that Obama’s birth certificate was forged, making him ineligible to be president. He also said late last year that Texas Tea Party Sen. Ted Cruz is also ineligible because he was born in Canada. The former sheriff also drew attention last year for suggesting that women should be positioned to be “the first ones shot” if supporters of anti-government rancher Cliven Bundy got into a firefight with federal authorities.

Fox News report crushes Hunter Biden smear after network investigation ‘found no role for Joe Biden’
A Fox News investigation "found no role for Joe Biden" in the business dealing of his son, Hunter, the network said on Sunday.
The admission was made by Fox News reporter Griff Jenkins.
Jenkins explained that the news organization had been provided documents by Tony Bobulinski, Hunter Biden's former business partner.
"You're talking about a business venture with the Chinese energy company in 2017 at a time when Joe Biden was not vice president," Jenkins explained. "But Fox's review of Bobulinski's documents, which were given to us, found no role for Joe Biden in that business venture."
Trump voter tells CBS she doesn’t wear a mask because ‘teeny-tiny’ virus is ‘so small’
A voter who supports President Donald Trump's handling of COVID-19 told CBS News on Sunday that she does not wear a mask because the virus is too small.
During a panel discussion with voters on Face the Nation, host Margaret Brennan asked which panelist wore face masks.
"Beth, you don't wear a mask?" Brennan asked one of the voters.
"I do when I'm in public spaces where they insist that you do," Beth replied. "But otherwise, no."
"And so when you hear the statistics that are rattled off by the CDC director, you hear Dr. Fauci say wearing a mask could really stop the spread, why do you doubt that?" Brennan pressed.
‘Rudy is just a moron’: Ex-Trump lawyer Cohen drops the mic on Giuliani’s very bad week
Appearing on MSNBC with host Maria Teresa Kumar, former Donald Trump fixer Michael Cohen was asked what ex-New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is doing for Donald Trump's re-election bid, with the former Trump lawyer brutally dismissing Giuliani as both a "liability" and a "moron."
In a week that saw Giuliani's attempt to smear Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden fall apart before moving on to a cameo appearance in a Borat film that caught him in a compromising position with an actress playing a teen reporter, Cohen laughed at the week's events.
