On Wednesday, CNN commentator Carrie Cordero said that President Donald Trump will weaken the office of the presidency.
Trump attacked Chief Justice John Roberts on Twitter after Roberts rebuked Trump’s claim that there are “Obama judges.”
Cordero said that Trump’s display of ignorance and lack of knowledge on the judicial branch will weaken his presidency.
During an interview with CNN’s John Berman, she said “The chief justice doesn’t need a lesson on the judiciary. The president has a fundamental — I won’t call it a misunderstanding, he has a non-understanding on the way the system is set up, on the checks and balances and on the independence of the judicial system.’
Cordero added, “This is one moment in time. This is just today where it happened to be the chief justice. This is part of the broader understanding of government and the president doesn’t seem to have that understanding. What he consistently is doing is trying to push down the other branches of government.”
“I think it’s going to backfire. I think eventually the institutions are going to prevail and he will end up leaving the presidency weaker,” she said.

Bill Maher reveals plan to ‘bribe’ Trump with one billion dollars — for him to leave office
The Constitution has two mechanisms to remove President Donald Trump from office prior to his term ending on January 20, 2021: impeachment and the 25th Amendment.
HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher noted that Trump could also choose to resign.
Maher waved around a $1 million check that he said he would give to Trump to quit.
He said he also knew 1,000 people who would do the same -- which would land Trump over $1 billion.
Maher said even poor people would pawn their wedding rings to add to the pot.
Trump can’t fire Mulvaney because nobody else wants to be his chief of staff: report
White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney will likely stay on at the White House despite his public confession of a quid pro quo in the Ukraine scandal at the center of the impeachment inquiry, The New York Times reported Friday.
"But Mr. Mulvaney’s job has been anything but normal since the news conference on Thursday at which he seemingly undermined the Trump administration’s strategy for avoiding impeachment by acknowledging that Mr. Trump had sought a quid pro quo for providing Ukraine with American aid," the newspaper reported. "In the chaotic aftermath, the president’s Republican allies are questioning Mr. Mulvaney’s savvy and intelligence even as the Trump campaign is defiantly turning one of his lines from the news conference into a T-shirt."
Bill Maher rips Trump and ‘the gang that couldn’t do treason straight’ on Real Time
HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher ripped the incompetence of the Trump administration after acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney confessed that there was a quid pro quo with Ukraine in Rudy Giuliani's search for foreign election assistance.
"It's not just that he's always breaking the law, it's that he obviously wants you to know about it," Maher said. "The Joker doesn't want to get caught this bad."
"This is Trump's definition of three-dimensional chess, 'I'm going to distract you from impeaching me by committing more crimes," he said.
"It's like he comes home and Melania says to him, 'you have lipstick on your color,' and he says, 'you should see my d*ck,'" Maher said.
