Ms. Krassenstein:

Chief Justice Roberts will criticize Chuck Schumer for rightfully condemning the Supreme Court justices but When Trump attacks a Supreme Court Justice or any number of the dozens of judges he has attacked in the last 4 years, he is too cowardly to say a single word. That’s bias.

Palmer Report:

Trump has spent years threatening the safety of too many government officials to list, and John Roberts has said nothing.

But now that Chuck Schumer said something mean about the two worst Supreme Court Justices, NOW John Roberts has something to say? Give me a break!

Whether you think Schumer’s comments were warranted or not, for Chief Justice Roberts to reprimand him, after permitting so much from Trump to go unacknowledged, will damage public faith in the neutrality of the Court he leads. This feels like a misstep.

I’m grateful to John Roberts for letting the mask slip and reminding everyone he’s nothing but a cheap GOP operative.

Make Despot-Don Gone:

Chief Justice John Roberts can and should be impeached when the Dems take over the presidency and senate in November for publicly ignoring Trump's attacks on two female justices while chastising Schumer for calling out two Trump-appointed justices! This ain't right!

Sheldon Whitehouse defends Schumer and rebukes Chief Justice John Roberts

“I'm a little upset that the chief justice chose this moment to jump into a political squabble when he had nothing to say about Kavanaugh's ranting and raving in the committee and nothing to say about Trump's threats to the two women justices,” Whitehouse told the Washington Examiner. “I don't think he's a very credible, neutral umpire on this.”
