Ginsburg Regrets 'Ill-Advised' Trump Comments

The backlash over Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s comments on presumptive Republican presidential nominee began almost immediately, and even those who may be inclined to agree with her thought she may have been better served by keeping them to herself. According to ABC News, she has offered up somewhat of an apology for what she refers to as her ‘ill-advised’ comments.

The 83-year-old jurist certainly wasn’t shy about sharing her feelings on Trump, who she referred to as a ‘faker.’ She also went on to assail him for not releasing his tax returns, worried aloud about the impact a Trump presidency would have on the nation, and joked that her late husband would consider it time for the couple to move to New Zealand if that comes to pass.

Trump was not amused and took to his favorite medium to respond to Ginsburg’s comments.

“Justice Ginsburg of the U.S. Supreme Court has embarrassed all by making very dumb political statements about me. Her mind is shot - resign!” he posted on Twitter.

After taking some time to reflect on things, she offered up a mea culpa in a statement released by the Supreme Court.

“On reflection, my recent remarks in response to press inquiries were ill-advised, and I regret making them. Judges should avoid commenting on a candidate for public office. In the future I will be more circumspect,” the statement reads in part.
