Tom Cotton is not happy and he has a plan to fix what ails this great country. According to Cotton, the Supreme Court must stop left-wing “resistance” judges from ruling this country with injunctions and other un-democratic maneuvers.
Today Trump called for Supreme Court Justices Ginsburg and Sotomayor to recuse themselves from any Trump-related case for obvious bias.
Cotton agreed and went one step further saying: “I’m glad the Supreme Court has been stopping it on an ad hoc basis,” he said about blocking these liberal injunctions before adding, “They need to stop it permanently.”
From Fox News:
The president’s commentary on Ginsburg was in reference to a 2016 interview in which she called him a “fake” with “no consistency about him.” Ginsburg later said she regretted her critical comments.
“Both should recuse themselves…on all Trump, or Trump related, matters!” he continued in a second tweet. “While ‘elections have consequences’, I only ask for fairness, especially when it comes to decisions made by the United States Supreme Court!”
In a lively news conference in New Delhi, India Tuesday morning, the president lashed out at the two justices and demanded that the two Democrat-appointed jurists recuse themselves from any cases involving him.
“I just thought it was so inappropriate, such a terrible statement for a Supreme Court justice,” he said of Sotomayor. “She’s trying to shame people with perhaps a different view into voting her way, and that’s so inappropriate.”
“I just don’t know how they can not recuse themselves from anything having to do with Trump or Trump-related. The right thing to do is that,” he continued.
“What Justice Sotomayor said yesterday was really highly inappropriate and everybody agrees to that. Virtually everybody. I’ve seen papers on it, people cannot believe that she said it,” he told reporters.
Cotton said resistance judges all across the country are challenging the president by stopping regulations he’s passed from going into effect. He said it was a “practice that has to stop.”
“I’m glad the Supreme Court has been stopping it on an ad hoc basis,” he remarked. “They need to stop it permanently.”
