CNN’s Toobin: Ginsburg’s Trump Remarks ‘Very Inappropriate for a Supreme Court Justice’


Wednesday on CNN, network legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin criticized Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s remarks criticizing presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

According to Toobin, the remarks were “unprecedented” in that Supreme Court justices have traditionally avoided offering their opinions about politics.

“I am surprised because this is really unprecedented behavior for a Supreme Court justice,” Toobin said. “Supreme Court justices express their opinions about all sorts of things relating to their work – what the Constitution means, what the laws mean. But there has been a very strong tradition for judges not to express direct political opinions about elections. And Justice Ginsburg’s statements have really been very unusual and frankly in my opinion very inappropriate for a Supreme Court justice.”

Toobin did go on to add that he didn’t share Trump’s view her “mind was shot” and that she should resign.
