Donald Trump fires back at Chief Justice John Roberts: You do have ‘Obama judges’ and judiciary is not ‘independent’

Chief Justice John Roberts and Donald Trump

President Donald Trump spent his first day on holiday at Mar-a-Lago tweeting up a storm. On Wednesday afternoon he picked a fight with the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, who’d rebuked the president’s attack on “Obama judges” the previous day.

According to Roberts, the U.S. does not have “Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges.”

“Sorry Chief Justice John Roberts, but you do indeed have “Obama judges,” and they have a much different point of view than the people who are charged with the safety of our country,” Trump tweeted. “It would be great if the 9th Circuit was indeed an “independent judiciary,” but if it is why are so many opposing view (on Border and Safety) cases filed there, and why are a vast number of those cases overturned. Please study the numbers, they are shocking. We need protection and security – these rulings are making our country unsafe! Very dangerous and unwise!”

The fight began when the president lashed out at the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, which ruled that the president’s ban on migrants seeking asylum was unconstitutional.

"Those tweets are racist, and xenophobic," he said. "They’re also inaccurate. The four women he’s referring to are actually citizens of the United States."

Over the weekend, Fox News host Tucker Carlson went on a rant against Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (R-MN), claiming that she poses a danger to America and is the reason U.S. immigration laws should be changed.

Writing in The Intercept, columnist Peter Maas points out that while it's important to call out Carlson's racism, journalists shouldn't lose sight of the fact that the real culprits are the Murdoch family, which funds the xenophobia and racism of Fox News.

Published

President Donald Trump on Monday said his racist attacks on four Democratic lawmakers were "not at all" racist, even as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced a congressional resolution to condemn him for his "disgusting" smears.

Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) -- whom Trump told to "go back" to their countries despite the fact that all four are American citizens -- were racist.

"Not at all," the president replied.
