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.

Alabama GOP Senate candidate bitterly complains TV has been ruined by showing too many ‘homosexual activities’
Alabama Republican Senate candidate John Merrill this week complained that he doesn't enjoy watching television anymore due to the excess amount of "homosexual activities" that appear on his screen.
In an interview with AL.com, Merrill said that the lack of positive moral content on television these days has led to a decline in the nation's morality.
"There’s no more TV shows like ‘Gunsmoke’ or ‘Bonanza’ or ‘The Virginian’ or ‘I Love Lucy’ or ‘Andy Griffith,'" he said "People are too interested in homosexual activities. They’re too interested in the wife-swap TV shows and the shows that are not morally uplifting. That’s the problem."
US manufacturing sinks into recession amid Trump’s trade wars
US manufacturing sunk into recession in June after two consecutive quarters of declines amid President Donald Trump's bitter trade wars, a slowdown in China and other trading partners.
The decline comes as the United States enters its 11th year of economic recovery and occurs despite Trump's constant pledges to restore America to manufacturing greatness -- even though services now drive three quarters of the US economy.
Despite jumping in June, manufacturing fell by a 2.2 percent annual rate in the April-June period, and total industrial production lost 1.2 percent, in both cases the second consecutive quarterly decline, the Federal Reserve said Tuesday.
Meghan McCain baffles co-hosts by instantly contradicting herself on Fox News and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
Meghan McCain described "The Squad" of first-year Democratic lawmakers as the "face" of the party -- and then complained when co-host Sunny Hostin pointed out that's how Republicans and Fox News were trying to portray them.
Hostin called President Donald Trump a racist for telling the lawmakers -- Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley and Rashida Tlaib -- to go back to their home countries, and co-host Joy Behar said he was "stupid" for launching those ugly attacks.
"I don't think he's stupid," McCain countered, "but I don't think he's politically astute at all because the politics of this -- on Friday night the progressives and Nancy Pelosi was full 'Gangs of New York'-style fighting with one another on Twitter. It was fascinating to watch."
