WaEx– The left-leaning New York Times editorial board is calling on Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, an icon for many liberals, to stop her public criticism of Donald Trump.
Ginsburg has used three media interview opportunities to rail against the Republican nominee, calling him a “faker,” inconsistent on policy and unfit for the presidency.
But Ginsburg “needs to drop the political punditry and the name-calling,” the Times said Wednesday, in an op-ed titled “Donald Trump is right about Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.”
“And just imagine if this were 2000 and the resolution of the election depended on a Supreme Court decision,” the paper said. “Could anyone now argue with a straight face that Justice Ginsburg’s only guide would be the law?” MORE
